Six for Sunday: Prequels, Sequels & Spin Offs Please

#SixforSunday is hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot. Every week there is a bookish-themed prompt to inspire 6 choices.

This month focuses on Bookish Wishes and this week the prompt is Characters who deserve another/their own book.

A Origins/Prequel please

Origin of the Dress- Enchantée – Gita Trelease

As much as I want to know what happened next for Camille considering the French Revolution is erupting around her- I also particularly want an origins of the glamoire but maybe its current incarnation as a dress from the court of the Sun King. Not technically a character BUT if you’ve read Enchantée it’s not quite ‘just a dress’ either.

David’s Story from Storm Hound- Claire Fayers

I want to see a prequel to StormHound finding out more about David and Auntie Ceridwen’s adventures around the world before her sights turned to a StormHound.

A Sequel Please

The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods -Samuel J Halpin*

Poppy and Erasmus are such an interesting pair I would love to see something else happen in their little town they have to investigate!! Maybe it will be some magical gateway and the Peggs were keeping the other things away- a sort of better the devil you know kind of plot.

The Midnight Hour – Benjamin Read & Laura Trinder

I loved the creativity of an alternative myth and monsters London forever frozen in 1859. Nightpost the original graphic novel shows there is much more of the world to be discovered- I would very much enjoy another outing there.

Spin Off Please

The Candles in The Stormkeeper’s Island books Catherine Doyle.

I was fascinated by the way that Malachy and other Stormkeeper’s captured the weather and memories into candles in Catherine Doyle’s amazing book. I know there is The Lost Tide Warriors coming in July BUT I want to hear about the candles.

A chapter per candle, chapter title is the candles name and a description of the colours/shape etc.

Maybe it could be burning the candle in some memories or making the candle and capturing in others but a book of short stories capturing each one, even just a peaceful sunset watching family etc would be awesome.

Kitty from The Closest Thing to Flying-Gill Lewis & to be fair whatever Hen did next too.

Kitty the blossoming feminist and Suffragette is such a ray of sunshine in The Closest Thing to Flying and whilst there is a limited nature to her tale I would love to read more about her, her bicycle and her convention flouting awesomeness.

What are your Choices?

Would you want to read books based around these stories?

    1. I really hope they notice you! I didn’t mean to sound like I was bragging there so I’m really sorry if it came across like that- just wanted to let you know it’s definitely a trilogy and that it came from a credible source 🙈

    2. Oh gosh no I would never think that- more self pitying than anything else!!! ☺️
      In truth I’m so pleased and proud of you (am I allowed to say that??) for the fact that publishers respect your opinion so highly and seek it out 💜
      And delighted to know there’s more!!

  1. I love the idea of David and Auntie Ceridwen’s previous adventures in Storm Hound. A book on the candles for The Storm-Keeper’s Island is ingenious! I totally agree about hearing more of Kitty’s story in The Closest Thing to Flying – her character really struck a chord with me.
