That moment when you think “I should write a blog post” and then realize you have no idea what to write a post about.
Or when you get ready to actually write a blog post and then you can’t think of a good way to start it.
Does that happen to anyone else? It happens to me all the time. I can’t be the only one.
Anyway, hi guys! I was going to write a post last night, but then I was out late and came back with a horrible headache, so that clearly didn’t happen. This morning I knew I was going to write a post, and then I couldn’t think of an idea. I have a list on my phone, but none of the ideas on the list felt like something I wanted to write, if that makes sense.
So then I was looking through other blogs, and I saw a Top 5 Wednesday post. Yes, I know very well that it’s Saturday, not Wednesday. I decided to look through the list of past topics, and started all the way back in August 2015 (as far back as the Goodreads page went).
And that’s how I got the idea for this post! Let’s get started!
1. Vampire Academy // Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
If you know me, you knew these books would be on this list. I think I’ve included them somehow in every post I’ve written since I finished reading The Ruby Circle, the final Bloodlines book. What can I say? I’m
extremely a little obsessed. 🙂
That aside, I would devour any more books Richelle decided to write in this world. There are so many possibilities! More series crossover adventures, something about Lissa and/or Jill, or a continuation of the TRC epilogue… I JUST NEED MORE, OKAY.
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Even a year after finishing the trilogy, these are still my favorite contemporary books. They’re so fun and adorable, and also they have Étienne St. Clair in them. Yes, that’s a completely valid reason. No, I’m not obsessed. 😉
As for sequels, anyone that’s read Isla and the Happily Ever After knows it has the most adorable ending ever, so that could be continued. I would very much like if that was continued.
3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Look, I acknowledged the existence of one of my favorite series not written by Sarah J. Maas or Richelle Mead! I’m so proud of me. 🙂
If you’ve read Crooked Kingdom, you know the ending is both sweetly satisfying and viciously cruel. I wouldn’t mind another book to help ease the pain. It could be Kaz and Inej’s adventures as they work to complete Inej’s goal. It could be Jesper and Wylan making a life in Ketterdam. It could be Nina and Matthias going off to explore, or making a life in Ravka so Nina can help Nikolai. It could be ANYTHING and I would read it. JUST GIVE ME MORE, PLEASE.
(If you’ve read both books, you know I made a “mistake” in that paragraph. It was on purpose, so I don’t spoil CK for those that haven’t read it.)
4. Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Look, it’s my other newest obsession! Aren’t all three books beautiful together?
That’s a rhetorical question. They are.
Another situation where I would read literally ANYTHING else published with these characters. Victoria has teased/implied more on Twitter, and I would very much like that to happen, please and thank you. Kell, Lila, Rhy, and Alucard are my favorites and I want to know more about what they all did after A Conjuring of Light. Not Holland, though. He can go live in a remote tree house somewhere * and not bother anyone. That would work out nicely. 🙂
* Normally in this situation I would say a character can die in a hole, but things in ACOL have persuaded me to dislike him a bit less, so he can live.
(Again, please don’t mention my “mistake,” so this post stays spoiler-free.)
5. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Yes, yes, I know the first in The Last Hours trilogy comes out next year. It’s a sequel series to The Infernal Devices, about … the next generation. That’s a safe way to say it. I’m incredibly excited for these books, but also wary because of the heartbreaking ending Clockwork Princess had.
While I’m excited for TLH, I wish there was a bit more to TID. Maybe a novella about what happened between the last chapter of the last book and the epilogue, so there was happiness to revel in before the heartbreak comes. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? 🙂
What series do you wish had more books? Are any of yours the same as mine? I’d love to know! Tell me in the comments! Just keep it spoiler-free. 🙂
I’m off to do a bit of journaling and start reading Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves. 😉 I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! ❤
Until next time…
