Books and Movies That Needed Sequels and the Ones That Didn’t

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Or rather, The Topic That Made Me Realize I Read Mostly Series.

The Books:

Uprooted by Naomi Novik because I loved the characters and world.

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson because I want to know more about Melinda’s healing process.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon because I think it would be interesting to see Maddy adjust to her new life and to see what happens to her mother.

The Movies:

Elf because 1) this is my favorite Christmas movie of all time and 2) I’m sure Buddy would have more ridiculous adventures, especially since he has a kid.

The Breakfast Club because what happens to their friendship AFTER their detention?!


The Sequels That Didn’t Need To Happen

The Books:

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee because 1) this was never meant to be published and 2) I don’t like what happens with Atticus.

Mockingjay by Susan Collins because of all the crap that went down and the fact that this series would have been better as a duology.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas because this felt like a bunch of filler and I got my fill after A Court of Mist and Fury.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child  by J.K Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany because it was essentially glorified fanfiction and IS NOT CANNON.

The Movies

Unpopular Opinion: Every modern superhero movie remake, sequel, etc. Seriously. I’m sick of them.


One thought on “Books and Movies That Needed Sequels and the Ones That Didn’t

  1. Book Admirer says:

    I totally agree with you on Mockingjay. By the third book, I am like why was this necessary? As for Go Set A Watchman, I couldn’t finish it. There was a reason why Harper didn’t want it published. It should have stayed that way.
