It’s time for the penultimate Bookish Wishes prompt on Six for Sunday and today is all about the couples who need a sequel! So read on to discover mine!
Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of prompts from January to June 2019 here
Couples Who Need A Sequel
Just like a couple of weeks ago when I shared six characters that I would love to see in another book I’m focusing on couples whose stories are already complete (as far as I know notwithstanding any surprise sequels that may be annouced one day) These characters are predominantly from standalone novels, or completed series, and are actual couples within the book(s) so no couples I want to see. That would be a whole different post and is the reason there’s no Cormoran and Robin below (I’m a bad fan who hasn’t read Lethal White yet so please don’t correct me if I’m wrong there)
Meg and Ed from Stargazing for Beginners by Jenny McLachlan
I loved how Meg and Ed’s relationship slowly grew as they became friends and then more by the end of the book. I confess I’ve not yet read Truly, Wildly, Deeply which is sort of a companion novel, featuring another character from Stargazing for Beginners so I may get some of my answers in there, but I really want to know how they’re getting on – and what Meg’s trip was like!
Lexi and Aiden from Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt
I loved Lexi and Aiden’s relationship in Unconventional so I’d love to read more of them! Plus who wouldn’t enjoy discovering another convention season through the eyes of Lexi Angelo!
Grace and Gabe from The State Of Grace by Rachael Lucas
Now as much as Grace and Anna’s friendship is probably my favourite relationship within The State Of Grace I also loved reading about Grace’s relationship with Gabe. It really was heartwarming so I’d happily take another book – and another book would mean more Anna too so bonus!
Holly and Ed from My Box-Shaped Heart by Rachael Lucas
Another Rachael Lucas book! She just writes some fantastic characters which are so easy to relate to and root for it’s hard not to want more of them! Holly and Ed were both dealing with difficult family issues so it was lovely to see the two of them connect in the story – so yes more of them please!
Jules and Liam from Everless by Sara Holland
Now I won’t lie, at the beginning of Everless I was rooting for Jules and Roan but then things happened… and by the end of Evermore I was all about Jules and Liam! So yes more please!
John and Grace from Cogheart by Peter Bunzl
This one is a little strange as John and Grace haven’t really had a story told… Now I only read Cogheart this week and I absolutely loved it and am very much looking forward to picking up the rest of the trilogy. However I’d actually really love to go back in time – John and Grace are the parents of Lily, one of the main characters in Cogheart now by the time the story begins Grace has died, however we find out a little more about her, as well as her relationship with John as the story progresses. Now I’d love to find out more about her and their lives together because it sounds pretty interesting!
Bonus mention:- Jack from Jack of Hearts [and Other Parts] by L. C. Rosen. I know Jack isn’t exactly in a relationship by the end of the book but more of him please! Alternatively I’ll take a whole book of his Jack of Hearts advice column…

I didn’t know about this meme. Thanks!
I didn’t think anyone else would choose Meg and Ed, but I did too! Also, John and Grace would be great to read! I haven’t read any of the others yet, but planning to read My Box-Shaped Heart soon. 🙂

I haven’t read Stargazing or Cogheart but I would love more books about any of your other couples.
