Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Check in on

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a weekly meme where we share books based on the theme.  My list is in order from least to most and I tried to pick books where I've finished the series/novel and know there won't be any spin-off companion soon.  Off we go!

10. The Dark Divine Series by Bree Despain
I felt like this series left on a cliffhanger.  I wish there were a novella or something to wrap everything up in a nice bow.

9. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Maybe not revisiting the characters so much as revisiting the world.  I loved the concept and would like to see it played out through another character's eyes, perhaps.

8. Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series by Laini Taylor
Another one that ended on a cliffhanger.  I loved this series and would eagerly pick up any companion story (and I think it needs one after the way Dreams of Gods & Monsters ended)

7. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
This series means so much to me.  I often think about it and would immediately buy any book related to it in any way.  Plus, the way it ended left so many new questions.

6. The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
I know he's working on a sequel but I need it right now to satisfy my thirst for this book.

5. Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore
I think many fans will agree on this one.  Each story was unique and each character holds a special place in my heart.  Even if it's not another novel, I'd like a short description for where each character is now.

4. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
I think this one needs more love.  It's such a great story (although it can be slow) and I return to it often when I'm in a bad mood.  Meyer has said she's writing sequels, but the more time passes, the more I believe it won't happen.

3. Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta
I would buy anything related to this series in a heartbeat.  It's not that I'm not satisfied with where everything ended, it's that I'm so in love with it that I can't help but want more.  All the feels!  I could do with twenty more in this series and not be satisfied.

2. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I know Gaiman has said that he has plans for another and he has written several short stories following Shadow (I have read them!) but I really want more.  It's my absolute favorite story and I trust Gaiman to not steer me wrong.

1. Riyria Revelations by Michael J Sullivan
A spin-off following two specific girls (no spoilers!) would be everything I could dream of.  And Sullivan hasn't said no, in fact, he's for the idea once his writing calms down a bit.

  2. Omigosh... another person who would like to go back to American Gods! Woohoo. Also, I considered the Inheritance Cycle, but I haven't finished it so I felt that it would be unfair of me to talk of that world without having the full picture yet anyway.

    My Top Ten Tuesday :)

    1. American Gods is just so good! I'm often battling the urge to reread it instead of starting something new. Thanks for stopping by!
