This was definitely a tough topic. Most books that are standalones are written that way for a reason. Most end in fairly, completely satisfying ways. Or they’re written in such a way that a sequel would only ruin the whole idea of the book.
Also, there really aren’t that many standalone YA books. So many books are part of series.

Top Ten Books I Wish Had Sequels
1The Fault in Our Stars– It’s not so much a sequel I want, just a little more detail. Like what happens to Hazel and her mom?? Just a few more answers. I would take 50 pages.
2The Perks of Being a Wallflower– How does Charlie cope after all his friends graduate? How does he handle high school after that? I def need more answers from this book. Although it really did end well.
3The Scorpio Races– DEFINITELY needs a sequel. What the heck, Maggie Stiefvater? Although in my review, I did say how much I loved the ending. #Can’tTakeItBack
4Sunshine– This vampire book by Robin McKinley TOTALLY left readers on a cliffhanger. Like, hello, what about the romance?!
5Anna and the French Kiss– Although I think things ended well in this book, another book about the their adventures would be mighty nice….
6Someday, Someday Maybe– DEFINITELY needs a sequel. What the heck happens to Franny and her new budding relationship? I definitely wanted more clarity.
7Pivot Point– Again, it ended well, but another book wouldn’t be asking for TOO much, right? I don’t think so.
8A Long, Long Sleep– Talk about a killer ending. I think I understand why the book ended so up in the air, but I definitely want more answers to these and other questions.
