  1. Eleanor & Park! Bad Mommy! Yes to both of these! I remember finishing Bad Mommy and thinking “Wow, is there a book 2?” and I was so sad to see that there wasn’t!

    • I know, right? I wish Tarryn would right another book about them. At least all of her other books are just as good. You should check them out if you haven’t already. I would recommend Mud Vein.

    • Thank you! I’m so happy you agree on those two. I can totally understand what you mean about Ugly Love.

  2. When It’s Real would probably have been my 11th choice. I would love more of those characters, too! I also thought about Eleanor and Park. I didn’t love the book as much as everyone else did, but it definitely deserves a sequel. I remember Rainbow Rowell used to talk about writing one all the time, but once she got started on other projects I never saw her mention it again.

  3. I really need to read Eleanor & Park. I love Rowell’s writing and Fangirl was a favorite of mine, so I’m not sure why I haven’t read this one yet! It does look like it would be tailor-made for a sequel to continue the story.

  4. Ohh More Happy Than Not, I could have used more for this book and more happiness to wrap things up, too hahahaha. πŸ™‚ Lovely list! πŸ™‚

    • A Corbin story would be amazing! I know she had some poll up on FB for which characters we would want to see more of. So maybe?

  5. I agree with you and everyone in this comments section… yes PLEASE to Eleanor and Park! I listened to this one several years ago and the story still sticks with me! I’ve been meaning to pick up Colleen Hoover for a while, those two are definitely high on my list!
