Monthly Monday Bookshelfie| A Standalone That Needs a Sequel

A friend of ours, Kwante, from Kwante in Wonderland created the Monthly Monday Book Shelfie. Every month there is a new topic. Continue reading to find out what the Monthly Monday Book Shelfie is and what to do if you want to participate! This month’s theme is a standalone that needs a sequel.

What standalone should have a sequel? After you think of the book you want to use, you do the following:

  • You take a book shelfie – the book you chose in front of the other books on your shelf.

After that you answer the following questions:

  • Where did you get the book?
  • Have you read the book yet?
  • What did you think of the book? If you haven’t read the book yet, what do you expect?



Where did you get the book? Carry On is a book I read after it came out. I only had it as an e-book at that point and when I saw that this version was going to be released, I knew I needed this one. There is even an amazing map inside!

Have you read the book yet? For this month’s theme, I think it would be hard to choose a book without actually reading it! Haha. It’s been quite awhile since I read it though and need to do a reread soon.

What did you think of the book? After reading Fangirl, I loved the concept of the book Carry On. I mean, Carry On is the book Cath fangirls about! For awhile I was afraid it was going to be a Harry Potter rip off, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I loved the characters and the story and was sad when it was said Carry On was going to be the only book. In 2020 Carry On will be getting a sequel! My wish is coming true with that!! I can’t wait to read what will happen with these characters!


Where did you get the book? I got this Dutch edition of Uprooted for Christmas a couple of years ago. The cover looked absolutely gorgeous and I heard a lot of good things about it.

Have you read the book yet? As Candyce said, this month’s theme kinda only works with books you read already haha. So yes, I read it and absolutely loved it! I think Uprooted is a bit of an underrated book as I don’t hear that many people talking about it and that’s such a shame in my opinion.

What did you think of the book? As I said, I LOVED it. The world was so interesting, the writing style was great, it really reminded me of a fairytale. And I adored the characters. It is pretty nice that it’s a complete story but at the same time I just want more. We are getting a sort of a companion novel, Spinning Silver. It’s set in the same fairytale universe I think Naomi Novik would describe it, but it has different characters and I don’t even think it’s in the same world. So I still need an actual sequel 😉

Sometimes a standalone leaves you wanting more! What standalone do you need more of?
