Discussion: Book Series That Should be Longer

I’m sure everyone here has had the experience of finishing a book series and still wanting more. Even if the ending is satisfying, it’s hard to let that world go! However, sometimes, the ending just isn’t satisfying at all and you know that there is so much more room in that world for more stories. The series I’m listing here are ones where the ending didn’t satisfy me, and I know there is realistically room for more. Of course, I may want 80 more Bloodlines books, but I know that’s just not realistic and I was satisfied with the ending. These series left me hanging and desperate for more books that sadly aren’t coming:

A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor: Review


“Henri said our names were fitting because we were destined to be together in our old age, like our great-great-aunts. Two gray old ladies in the bodies of teenage girls. Someday we’d live in a big house with faded curtains, a dozen or so cats, and a handful of our marbles long ago lost. On all accounts—our destiny, her clairvoyance, and our soon-to-be missing marbles—I believed her.”


Publisher: Dial Books

The Goodreads Book Tag

I absolutely love Goodreads, so I thought it was finally time for me to do this tag! I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I’ve seen it on so many people’s blogs recently (such as lifeofaliterarynerd and yadaily) so definitely go check out their posts as well. You can find me on Goodreads here & please feel free to add me! I love seeing everyone’s reading updates!

What was the last book you marked as read?


Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerry Maniscalco was my most recent read! It’s been a while since I’ve read a mystery novel and this one was everything I wanted it to be and more. I was hesitant to pick it up because of James Patterson’s name on the cover (I’m not a huge fan of his) but thankfully I listened to everyone raving about it and I gave it a shot. I really loved this one!

A+ on the test: A book or character that makes you smile?


The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken never fails to make me smile, I love this book so very much! I have an ebook edition on my phone that I open up and re-read my favorite scenes when I need a pick-me-up or when I’m just stuck somewhere and bored. The characters and road trip vibe are just so great, and this book holds such a special place in my heart.
