Books I Wish Had More… Well… More {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today I’d like to talk about a few books I wish had more. Yep. More.

I know, the original idea was to be more specific. Books I wished had more kissing. Books I wished had less tropes. Books I wished had more of something or less of something. But you know, I was wracking my brain for this seemingly easy topic and came up blank. Book blogging blackouts, I guess it happens. So instead I took the topic and vagued it up. Oh yes, I vagued it up and came up with… books I wish had more! Genius, isn’t it? 😉

So these are the books I wish had more. More story. More sequels. More POV. Just… more. Now, when I finish a book I am either completely satisfied with it, or I’m just not. The books below are a combination of both. Some books I was satisfied with, but I’m just a greedy little bookworm and I still want more of the story, more of the characters. And some books I wasn’t that satisfied with but I feel like ‘more’ could easily fix that problem. So let’s get into it!

What it’s about:

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.

Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine—called Mare—the sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two become closer, Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. And soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.
