The Totally Should’ve Book Tag was created by EmmmaBooks on Youtube!
It’s tag time!! We love tags here, so when we saw this one around the blogosphere, we knew we wanted to give it a go.
Warning: some of these, because of the nature of the question, may contain spoilers. Read on at your own risk.
A BOOK THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A SEQUEL
LISA: This book, guys. It totally slayed me. As far as a sequel goes, I just would have LOVED more of this story. Maybe not a sequel, so much as JUST MORE OF THE THINGS!
BECCA: I just loved Max and Cade’s story so much and I STILL need more and think of this couple often! I even discussed a sequel for them with Cora at a book signing and she said they are the only couple she has considered it for! Maybe someday…
A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A SPIN-OFF
LISA: I think anyone who has read Harry Potter can agree that we’d LOVE to read spin-offs!! Basically anything having to do with this world is a positive thing to me.
BECCA: I totally think that Sturmhond should have his own series! I love that snarky pirate (ahem… privateer) so much and he NEEDS his own spin-off series!!
AN AUTHOR THAT SHOULD TOTALLY WRITE MORE BOOKS
LISA: The Sea of Tranquility is one of my favorite books, ever! I absolutely adored every single thing about it. Katja Millay’s writing was perfection and the story was just EVERYTHING! I would do all kinds of crazy fangirl dancing if Katja wrote another book. I need MORE!
BECCA: Lisa did this post first and I considered picking someone else but I just couldn’t because I whole heartedly agree! Katja Millay blew me (and many others) away with this book and I would love to read more by her!
A CHARACTER WHO TOTALLY SHOULD’VE ENDED UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE
LISA: I’m just not a fan of these two. At all.
BECCA: Okay Lisa and I adisagree on The Selection, I was happy with the guy America ended up with! On the other hand, the guy that her daughter Eadlyn ended up with? Nope, not the way I wanted it.
A BOOK THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE ENDED DIFFERENTLY
LISA: Alllllllll the feels!
BECCA: Again I had to pick the same one! Because… well if you’ve read it then you know why…
A SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A MOVIE FRANCHISE
LISA: I’d love to see The Grisha as a movie franchise. Can you even imagine how amazing that would be?!
BECCA: Will Herondale in real life?! OMG I would love to see this series as a movie!
A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE BEEN A TV SHOW
LISA: So I may be speaking too soon here, as I’ve only read the first book in this series… but I can totally picture this gorgeous story as a TV Show. I feel like there are so many books and so much information in this series that a movie franchise probably wouldn’t do it justice. However, I think a movie series would be perfection!
BECCA: OMG if the Lunar Chronicles was a TV Show series I would TOTALLY tune in every single week!
A BOOK THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD ONLY ONE POINT OF VIEW
LISA: I’m stumped. I honestly can’t think of one. I’m a huge fan or multiples points of view, and I can’t think of a single time that I wish there had been only one. Hmm….
BECCA: After only 2 POV’s in The 5th Wave I really struggled with the Infinite Sea. There were just so many POV’s and multiple times I was so confused about who was talking. I don’t know if I would have wanted only one POV? But definitely less!
A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A COVER CHANGE
LISA: Let me start by saying that I haven’t read this series, but I’ve had it on my TBR for quite some time. The cover is just so off-putting! From what I know, this is supposed to be a crime/mystery YA book… and this cover does NOT look like that to me. I just wish it was a more intense, crime-ish cover, if that makes sense. If it had a more eye-catching cover, I probably would have purchased and read it by now. I just don’t like this cover AT ALL. (And the entire series looks basically exactly the same as this one.)
BECCA: I love the covers for the entire Water Fire Saga, but the most recent one for Sea Spell is just not for me.I’m not sure what it is… but it just looks so odd to me!
A BOOK OR SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE KEPT THE ORIGINAL COVERS
LISA: I don’t hate the new cover, by any means… but I just LOVE the original so much more!!!
BECCA: I feel like the original cover for Dangerous Girls captured the feel of the book so much better than the second one!
A SERIES THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE STOPPED AT BOOK ONE
LISA: Let me be straight here… I never finished this series. I LOVED Divergent, so, so much… but then struggled my way through the first half of Insurgent. I finally gave up and called it a day. I never finished, nor do I have any plan to continue. I wish this series had started and ended with Divergent.
BECCA: The first book in The Murder Complex was pretty good but the sequel was just not for me. I would’ve liked to see this series stick to one book.
That was so much fun! What do you think of our answers? We tag everyone who’d like to do this tag to play along!
