Happy Sunday Bibliofriends,
This month has been such a fun month for my reading! I’m really looking forward to posting my wrap post soon! 🙃
This week’s Six For Sunday was supposed to be about my favourite ever series, however as I think we may have already figured out this month… I haven’t read a lot of series all the way through and most of my favourite ones have already been covered throughout the previous S4S May weeks. With that in mind, I wanted to do something slightly different and decided to write about some of the standalone books that I wished were a series. For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is a weekly list-based meme created by Steph @ALittleButALot and has a different weekly prompt based on a monthly theme. Title headings link to Goodreads.
- To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
This book was so beautifully written and I fell head over heels in love it. It felt like there was so much potential to explore some other aspects of the world Christo built and I’d definitely be auto-buying a follow-up if ever there was one.
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
It was so fun to explore the Thorn and Elisabeth’s world – I need to know more about those grimoires and the libraries of their world… and of course, Silas!
- The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller
This was such a wickedly delicious book. The Shadow King and Alessandra are probably one of my favourite newer romances in fiction. I would love a follow-up just to see what happened across the kingdom after the ending!
- The Immortal City by Amy Kuivalainen
I read this book on NetGalley and it was billed as a new series however I haven’t heard any info about a future sequel. I don’t think it had a particularly wide release however I really enjoyed reading it.
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman
This was probably one of the first fantasy books to capture my heart and one where I feel the movie almost lives up to the book. It would be fabulous to return to the world beyond the Wall.
- The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Zafón is one of my all-time favourite authors. His stories are so imaginative and he has a very distinct writing style which I love to read. Although The Prince in Mist is technically a series of 3 books, the stories don’t actually link together in any way. The setting for The Prince in Mist, an overgrown garden with a clown statue in the centre, was so mysterious that I’d love a follow-up from this world.
There we go, a slightly different take on this week’s Six for Sunday! What are your favourite series? What are some standalone you wish had a sequel? As always, leave your link below or drop me a comment to chat!
