Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Wish Had Sequels!

Hello lovelies,

It's that time for Top 5 Wednesday, as created by the awesome GingerReadsLainey and now moderated by the lovely ThoughtsonTomes over on Goodreads!

This weeks topic is...Books You Wish Had Sequels! Yes, now this topic is my jam! If I love a book I pretty much want more 99% of the time so this may be difficult to narrow down...

Fair warning, I've mentioned at least two of these a bajillion times. I think there should just be an "I love Lock In and Vicious" disclaimer at the bottom of all my posts!
My choices for this are;

Lock In - John Scalzi

I feel like if you've read any of my other Top 5 posts, I don't really need to explain this? but I will anyway.

Lock In is about the world we're in, in the future, dealing with a flu epidemic that has caused a massive amount of the population to become "locked in". As a result, androids and highly advanced virtual reality are common place. I can't really say why I would like to see a sequel to this as it would be a spoiler. But let's say something in this book happens, and I'd like to see the fall out.
And I'd love to see more of Shane and Vann. Also it would be interested to see how much of Shane's life Scalzi could explore without revealing their gender.

Vicious - V. E. Schwab

This also feels a little bit obvious. This is one of my favourite reads as an adult and I just want more of it.

I honestly don't want to say anything about this book, because I think part of the description of this book is a spoiler. If you decide to read it, don't read any blurbs!
It's awesome, read it though then come back and we'll talk about a sequel.
(Vicious movie though, YAY!)

Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon

This one might be less expected, but even soon I think a few people would like a sequel to this.

The story is a girl who's allergic to everything, and a boy who moves in next door.
This was a really cute story, with some serious undertones. I'd love to see what happened next, there are several relationships that change throughout this group and I want to know how/what happens.

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

OK, so this one does not need a sequel, but I want one anyway.

This book is about a future where everything has went to crap and basically everyone lives their lives inside this virtual reality called the OASIS. The person who created the OASIS dies, leaving his fortune to the mega geek who solves all the clues. Fortunately our protagonist is one such mega geek!

To be honest, I just want to see more of the OASIS, and see how a couple, OK ONE! relationship plays out.

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

If you've read this book, CMON. you want one too.

What are your thoughts? Any of these sequels tickle your fancy or are you just like nah?

I'd love to know what your Top 5 books you wish had sequels choices are, so leave your answers below, or if you've done this weeks, link me up below!
