This week's topic: 5 books that you did not want to end
For some reason I had trouble thinking of books that I didn't want to end. I think part of it has to do with my reading habits; I always have another book (or two, or three....) waiting in the wings and so I find myself eagerly waiting for a book to end -- even though I might love it -- so that I can move on to the next one. Yeah, I know, I have issues.
But I did come up with a few books that I would have liked to read a few more pages:
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett -- I absolutely loved this book and the ending left things wide open for at the very least an epilogue.
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows -- each time I read this book I felt like I was one of the group.
- Room by Emma Donoghue -- don't we all want to see how Jack grows up?
- Something Missing by Matthew Dicks -- another book where I would have loved to see a few more chapters. I'm hoping for a sequel, because this story definitely lends itself into becoming a series.
- Small Island by Andrea Levy -- What happens to Hortense and Gilbert? And Queenie? I would have read on about them for pages and pages.
After thinking about it, these books really were ones that I did not want to see end because there were so much to the characters and what happened to them that I wanted more of them.
