Thursday Tags – Totally Should’ve

This weeks tag is the Totally Should’ve tag, started over on youtube by emmabooks. Its an oldy but a goodie so be sure to check out her original post.

Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

I feel like this is one I would have had a better time answering a few years ago when I didn’t fully appreciate a stand alone book. Sometimes sequels can totally ruin things and stories would have been better off left alone.The only book I could come up with that I would want really another one of would be The Forgotten War by Howard Sargent.

Totally should’ve had a spin off series

So again, this is hard because things that I want to have a spin off already do or have one coming. The Forgotten War again I think would have amazing spin off potential but something else that I think that needs a spin off is. . . Maybe To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I don’t think I need more of this story in particular but I would love maybe more John Ambrose, or one of the other characters.

An author who totally should write more books

I didn’t expect this tag to be so damn hard. Most of my favourite authors pump out books so I can’t really say them. Again I could use Howard Sargent for this one but I am going to go with Felicia Day. I would love to get another book perhaps about how she juggles her life with a daughter now. I don’t know, I just like most things she does.

A character who totally should’ve ended up with someone else

I don’t think I can actually answer this one. I generally go along with the ships that the authors intended, even if I felt differently at the start of the book or series. A good example Would be I wanted Celena to end up with Dorian in Throne of Glass, and while I don’t mind Rowan now I might really like Dorian with Manon by the end of the series and be fine with them not being together.

Totally should’ve ended differently

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. While I really like one thing that happened in this book, I think the overall plot and why everything was happening wasn’t very thought through and let the trilogy down and should of been taken in a different direction.

Totally should’ve had a movie franchise

Ahhhh why is everything so hard. Most books seem to be movies these days which makes it hard to pick things, that and I don’t want the things to be ruined by them getting a movie either. I think All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven would make a good movie if it was done right.

Totally should’ve had a TV show

While I hate to say it because I don’t want it to be ruined I think A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. The whole series. I know it has been picked up for a movie but that doesn’t seem long enough to capture everything. If they gave it the room it needs I think it would be an awesome series.

Totally should’ve had only one point of view

I literally have nothing for here. Allegiant could almost go here because I didn’t like how four got perspective in the last book but not the others but I get why he did by the end. Other than being bored by character chapters at the start I don’t think I have a book where I just think they should have cut out that perspective.

Totally should have a cover change

Finally an easy one. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. They have the ugliest covers and they did get a change but they were also very boring and ugly. Give them a better cover please and thank you.

Totally should’ve kept the original covers

The first thing that instantly popped into my mind was Across the Universe by Beth Revis. While I didn’t like the book I thought the original covers where beautiful and I just don’t get why they changed them to the ugly things they did.

Totally should’ve stopped at book one

These last few were nice and easy. If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I loved that first book but that second one was so unneeded and ruined the feelings you got from the first book.

 

 

 

And thats it! That was a fun tag and I really enjoyed it, but I am struggling to find new and interesting tags to do so if you have a tag you want me to do let me know! I would love the input.

 

Till next Time. . .

Thursday Tags – Totally Should’ve

thursdaytags

Welcome to another Thursday Tags. This weeks tag was created by the wonderful Emma of emmabooks.

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

1. Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

I am not going to touch this because good things should be left alone. We all know things that have been ruined because they get dragged out,

2. Totally should’ve had a spin off series

I know I have answered this before, but I can’t for the life of me think of one…

3. An author who totally should write more books

Leslye Walton who wrote The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. That book was amazing. Please write more.

4. A character who totally should’ve ended up with someone else

Nana K from Nana by Ai Yazawa. I had a rant about this last week.

5. Totally should’ve ended differently

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. The whole direction in which the plot went should be changed. The deaths can still be the same, but like the big big thing needs to go.

6. Totally should’ve had a movie franchise

Not franchise by I think I would like All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven would be a good movie.

7. Totally should’ve had a TV show

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I don’t really need to go into why I don’t think.

8. Totally should’ve had only one point of view

I don’t think I can of a book or series that would have been better with just the one point of view.

9. Totally should have a cover change

Any VA or Bloodlines books by Richelle Mead. I know VA got a cover change but they still weren’t any good.

10. Totally should’ve kept the original covers

Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Even though I didn’t like it this series looked stunning until they changed the covers.

11. Totally should’ve stopped at book one

If I Stay by Gayle Forman. Where She Went sort of ruined it for me (even though I liked it) I try to think of it as a separate thing altogether.

 

 

 

Till Next Time. . .
