Top 5 Books that Need a Spin-off Book/ Series

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday hosted by the brilliant Bionic Bookworm herself! Shanah’s also just posted the Top 5 Tuesday topics for December, so if you want to give this weekly feature a try, now’s the perfect chance to go check it out!

This week’s topic is all about books or series we think deserve even more books! Some of my choices won’t necessarily be about spinoffs exactly, a lot of them are books where I want a collection of short stories added to them BECAUSE I’M DESPERATE! This is such a great topic, and I can’t wait to get into it!

So, without any further ado, the Top 5 Books I think need a spinoff!

#5- Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popovic


Holy cannoli does this book have some spinoff potential! This whole story revolves around immortal women who can manipulate and use beauty like a weapon. In the book, it implies that they use their immortality mostly for the purpose of just exploring the world and honing their power. But these women have existed for hundreds of years. Give me stories on how they dealt with colonial witch hunts and the Middle Ages. Were they the inspiration for characters like Helen of Troy? What do they do in times of global crisis, like the World Wars? How do women who can control the very thing humanity often strives for affect the world?

#4- Fire by Kristin Cashore


This book has monsters in it. Like, real, easily identified monsters that can sneak into your mind and control your actions if you’re not careful. What the heck kind of stories do you tell kids who are afraid of monsters under the bed, when you can see real live monsters flying above the castle? How do you deal with that?! Who are some heroic monster-slayers? Are there any monsters that are considered heroes in their own right? JUST GIVE ME MORE STORIES ABOUT THESE MONSTERS!

#3- A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas


Yes, we’re getting more books in this series already. Yes, I’m still asking for more. In the ones we’re already promised, I hope to hear more about Nesta. I actually want them to be about Nesta and Cassian. But I want a spinoff about all the characters who aren’t “supposed” to be there. Tell me about Amren’s origins. Tell me about where the Bone Carver and his sister come from. How did they get to Prythian? Was it an accident or on purpose? Did they like it at first, or did they immediately want to go home? What happened to the Bone Carver’s and Stryga’s brother? I have some theories. I want to know more about these characters that are considered mysterious even to the Fae

#2- The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis


If you’ve read The Last Battle, you might remember that scene near the end where Jewel the unicorn explains to Jill that Narnia only seems constantly exciting because the children are only ever brought to Narnia when something needed a-fixing. He then goes on to say that there were many peaceful years in between visits where there was Legendary Figure X and then Poggin the dwarf mentions Legendary Figure H, and then Tirian mentions Legendary Figure K. THAT’S WHAT I WANT!! I want a collection of Narnian short stories! What are the sorts of fairytales and fables you tell your kids WHEN YOU ALREADY LIVE IN NARNIA?!? My hopes for this aren’t too high what with the whole C. S. Lewis being dead thing, but it doesn’t change the fact that I want it!!

#1- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows

More than all of these, I want to see my precious killer Inej sailing around the world beating up pirates and saving girls sold into slavery and teaching them how to fight for themselves and how to love and take care of themselves. I want to see her and Kaz tag teaming and ruling the world because all of Ketterdam already know not to mess with them, and the Ice Court is pretending nothing ever happened even though everyone already knows, and now, not even the seas are safe. I just… there’s so much more I want to hear about my Inej and Kaz.

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to check out Shanah’s Top 5 Tuesday Post!

  1. !0000% here for an Inej spin off. All of what you described is everything I’d want to know if Leigh Bardugo continued with that story. I’d LOVE to see Kaz and Inej’s relationship develop.

  2. I seriously need a 100 book series about Inej being a badass ship captain that punches racists and frees girls and then makes a crew of super badass angry woman that explore the world. I WANT THAT QUEEN LEIGH ARE YOU LISTENING?? also Kaz in the background being like “kick ’em baby I got yo flower” and Nina being the best bisexual to ever exist and joining the crew on some adventures…I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT A SIX OF CROWS SPIN-OFF SERIOUSLY.
    And omg Wicked like A Wildfire sounds like my kind of book I need to read it now.

    • That would be AMAZING!!! Jesper and Wylan occasionally help them out through their merch ties, even though they’re not supposed to. But nobody will do anything about it because they have the Wraith backing them up. That’s all I want for Christmas 😍😍

      Surely a spin-off of a book with some of the best characters ever isn’t too much to ask? Right?
