Booking Through Thursday (6)


If you could get a sequel for any book, what would it be?

Without a doubt it would be Witch in the House by Jenna McKnight. It's about a witch called Jade who casts a spell to bring herself happiness and one to bring happiness to a jilted groom, and accidentally merges the spells. I first read this a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it.

As soon as I was done I popped online and looked around for information on a sequel, especially as it was fairly obvious Jade's two friends were supposed to have their own stories. I did find mention of a sequel in several places, but when I tried to find a release date a few months later everything had disappeared. After multiple unanswered emails to both the author and the publishing house, I gave up.

Recently the author has made it public knowledge that she has Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and won't be writing anymore, which is a real shame as I was looking forward to reading more from her and this book is now less fun as it is clearly the first of a trilogy that is not going to be finished.

  1. I don't think i've read that one. Strange what the author has said. It was illness that turned me to writing.

  5. I haven't heard of this one either. Sorry about the author's illness, since so many of us suffer from SAD. I hope she can find some comfort somehow or another.

  8. Hmm, I've never heard of this one but I am intrigued... I totally empathize with your frustration over the lack of a planned sequel! I was perfectly happy with a book I read last month being a standalone until I read that the author had considered it as part of a trilogy. :( Sometimes publishers suck.
