Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading.
Which non-series book would you most like to read the sequel to? Do you have any wishes for what might happen in it?
I’ve always wanted for there to be a sequel to one of my favorite books, Rich in Love by Josephine Humphreys. I read this book as a teenager and related closely to the narrator, 17-year-old Lucille, and I wanted to know what happened to her as an adult. The ending of the book leaves it open:
“I don’t think I will marry,” I say out loud to Phoebe, who is kicking her heavy white shoes into my thighs. “I’m not afraid to live alone.” But I am honest with Phoebe, at least for the time being, and I say, “But who knows what will happen? We’ll have to wait and see.”
