Totally Should’ve … Book Tag!

totally

There are things that simply should or shouldn’t have happened. Even more so in the bookish world, so many thanks to Anna @My Bookish Dream for tagging me to do the Totally Should’ve … Book Tag!

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…GOTTEN A SEQUEL:

Anna had the perfect answer, which is The Night Circus! But I am determined to find something else too and that would be How I Live Now. I would have loved a low key sequel just to see how everyone is doing and if it gets better or if everything stays so sad.

 

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…HAD A SPIN OFF SERIES:

That’s definitely a tough one. Maybe a spin off with Max Vandenburg from the Book Thief would have been nice? But a novella probably would have done it as well. I am torn about this one. Honestly nothing else crosses my mind.

AN AUTHOR WHO TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…WRITTEN MORE BOOKS:

Tahereh Mafi? I love her style of writing. There’s seriously not much to compare it to in the way of uniqueness and beauty. I love the Shatter Me series and I know that there is a new book coming out, but I don’t want a book for kids, I want more YA!!!

 

A CHARACTER WHO TOTALLY SHOULD’VE… ENDED UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE:

Does this happen a lot in books? Because I cannot think of anyone from the get go. Maybe Sookie shouldn’t have ended up with Sam on the Sookie Stackhouse series? I quite liked it, but I get how everyone would prefer Eric … it just wasn’t a realistic choice though, so I am alright with Sam even though it is weird? I totally just didn’t answer the question correctly.

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…HAD A MOVIE FRANCHISE:

The Anna and the French Kiss series!!! Just imagine Anna, St. Clair, Lola, Cricket, Isla and Josh in a movie trilogy? PERFECTION!!!

 

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…HAD A TV SHOW:

Trial by Fire (Worldwalker, #1)Firewalker (Worldwalker, #2)I am on the second book of the Worldwalker series (consisting of Trial by Fire and Firewalker so far) and I could SO see it as a TV show. The books are amazing and switch between modern day world and some fantastical alternate universe. The world-building is amazing and I could already see some of the merchandise for it!

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…HAD ONLY ONE POINT OF VIEW:

Allegiant. Sorry, but that was a dead giveaway!

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…HAD A COVER CHANGE:

I am really happy with most covers I get, buying almost exclusively the pretty editions. But, and I feel so bad for saying this, I could imagine prettier covers for the Red Rising trilogy. If you know me, you know that I ADORE these books, they are my everything! However, that doesn’t change the fact that a red, brown-ish and bright blue spine does not look that great next to each other. The front is fine, but the spines … just saying!

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…KEPT THE ORIGINAL COVERS:

6567017Will Grayson, Will GraysonThese questions are getting increasingly difficult! I don’t even know! Hold on, I do! Just thought of it right now, because I haven’t actually read it. I liked the original cover of Will Grayson, Will Grayson better than the new one, which is now the only edition available at my bookstore.

TOTALLY SHOULD’VE…STOPPED AT BOOK ONE:

As much as I loved the Molly Moon series as a kid, it did not get better with time … at all.


 

I TAG:

EVERYONE! I’ve seen the tag around for a bit now, so I don’t want to tag people who might have already done it. If you think this one is for you – consider yourself tagged!

  1. Great answers! I definitely agree with you, Tahereh Mafi should write more books, and more YA, I NEEED MOOORE right now. And even if I haven’t read Lola, I could totally see those books being done as movies, that would be SO great, I’d love it! ❤
    I consider myself lucky I got the original cover of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, because that new cover isn't as good…why do they have to change book covers sometimes, I WONDER … 😛

  2. What cool choices! A sequel to How I live Now and a spin off for Max in the Book Thief- yes please! Oh my goodness- I agree so much about Allegiant- it just shows she hadn’t planned the ending cos if she had she’d have had two perspectives the whole way through. Also what would’ve been wrong about having the book from Tris’ perspective till she died. Anyway, it was dumb to have her die and not someone else- Four would’ve been a better contender- not the best ending to a series.

  3. I totally agree with How I Live now. I loved that book so much but I felt like a sequel would have been so good. I felt like it didn’t really tell us how everyone was now.

    P.S – I tagged you in the bohemian rhapsody book tag. I hope you haven’t already done it 🙂 ❤

  4. Oh, how I love Eric Northman. I was always in the middle with Sam actually, but I never got around to finishing the last few books of the series. I’m getting increasingly intrigued by the Worldwalker series.. 🙂

  5. Sooo good!!! Where do I start. Ummm.. (1) Sookie ends up with Sam!?!? That’s weird. Lol. (2) Totally agree about Tahereh, she’s my idol and I want moooore YA. I’ll def read the MG, but still, I REALLY REALLY want the YA. Especially because I finished Ignite Me a couple weeks ago and I feel like I’m in withdrawal. >..<

    • I knoooow, Sookie and Sam? That did not seem like an obvious choice throughout the books. But then, reading the final two, it sort of made sense. I actually liked the idea so much, I wanted the TV show to end like that as well, but I guess you can’t have everything…
      Tahereh is queen! And from what I read in terms of reviews for her MG book, it has a lot of adult or YA themes thrown in as well, so it’s not JUST for children, but still. I NEED MORE YA FROM HER!
