Books That Need a Prequel – Top 5 Tuesday

I had trouble coming up with books that needed a prequel, that didn’t already have that backstory fleshed out. I’m sure I’ll see what other people thought of and like those ideas, but for now I really only have a top three?

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her post here!

Books That Need a Prequel:

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Obviously, the prequel needs to be Marauders-centric and should have been out yesterday.

A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas

I would love to see what the Inner Circle was up to when Amarantha came on the scene and before she went Under the Mountain. I feel like there’s so much story to explore there.

Shadowhunters by Cassandra Clare

We got just the tiniest bit of backstory about the time of the Circle in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, but I’d be really interested in reading a novella that delves more into their time and dynamics.


What books would you love to read a prequel to? Let me know in the comments!

    A prequel from ACOTAR would be EPIC! But it needs to focus all on Rhysand and the inner circle. I want to know how they all came to be together, how they protected their land, their initial battles…. ALL OF IT!
    Thanks so much for participating – added you to the list 🙂

    I would love to see an ACOTAR prequel! The Inner Circle has such wonderfully developed and diverse characters. I would love to get to know their stories.

    I feel like it would be so interesting to see what the Inner Circle would be up to when everything was going on. I feel like there would be some great stories there. I was trying to think of some that I would want as well, and I’m finding it quite hard as well. Wonderful selection, Kyera! ❤
