Hey Pals! Today I am doing The Totally Should’ve Book Tag. Thank you so much Claudia @ Claudiareadsbooks for tagging me. I am really grateful to you. Claudia is a massive bookworm that has some of the best bookish content I have come across, from fun tags to raving about her favorite books, she misses nothing. This tag was created by a Booktuber- Emma @ emmmabooks. Now, without much ado, let’s begin the tag!!
1: Totally should’ve gotten a sequel
The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse by Nicholas Gannon. This is the sequel to The Doldrums and I love this book a lot. It was hilarious, fun and mysterious. I love these characters so much, they are all just so full of life and make a great team. I just wish I could read another story about these characters!
2: Totally should’ve had a spin-off series
The Uglies series!! I just want more of this because that’s like my favorite series and just…
3: An author who totally should write more books
Alex Light– the author of The Upside of Falling.
This book was pretty good. Definitely not the most amazing thing out there but it was written really well. I think this author should try her hand at more contemporary books because I think they’ll turn out good.
4: A character who totally should’ve ended up with someone else
Katniss from The Hunger Games series. I felt (spoiler alert) like she neither loved Peeta nor Gale and she easily let go of Gale which I didn’t like at all. Come on, that guy was her friend, it’s like she didn’t miss him at all! But at the same time, I think a girl like her is so much better off without either of them, lol.
5: Totally should’ve ended differently
The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis. This series went downhill from the 6th book and the last book could’ve been so much better if not for the ending. The last two or three chapters were so disappointing. I felt like the author just couldn’t decide how to end the series, so he wrote whatever he thought would look fine. And don’t even get me started on the very last paragraph 🤯! It was so bad that it was obvious that the author was out of ideas (Sorry that was a rant, I didn’t mean to harm anyone’s feelings).
6: Totally should’ve had a movie franchise
The Magnus Chase trilogy by Uncle Rick. These books would make an amazing movie franchise! I would love to see these characters brought to life, it would be dang good 🤩.
7: Totally should’ve had a TV show
The Uglies Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld. I love it because of the amazing plot and the characters and the twists, just everything about it is awesome. The fact that these characters get an operatiom to look “pretty” forever is such an interesting concept and would make a fabulous TV show!
8: Totally should’ve had only one point-of-view
Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney. This book had three perspectives, and I found Adam’s perspective to be useless. I mean, technically all three were needed in the story, but the guy who was narrating Adam’s parts was doing an incredible job of being thoroughly horrible at it. This book in itself pretty much sucked (long story), and I didn’t enjoy Adam’s narration all that much, it would have been better if I didn’t have to read it.
9: Totally should’ve had a cover change
The Soulful Seeker by Poonam Chadha Joseph. This is a poetry book and I have only read a few poems in it. It’s actually my sister’s book so on one boring day, I picked it up randomly. The few poems I read were utterly fantastic. The problem I have with the cover of this book is that the face of the woman just doesn’t work for me and I wish that it was something different. I mean come on, doesn’t it look weird?!
10: Totally should’ve kept the original covers
The Twilight Saga series by Stephanie Meyer. Honestly, what was wrong with those obscure, dark and mysterious covers? Why did they get movie-tie-in editions, which I don’t think suck but they are so cliche!
11: Totally should’ve stopped at book one
Would you mind if I give an unpopular opinion? The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 😛. I just didn’t see the point in stretching the story, I felt like the second book was unnecessary and the third one had a barely-developed plot. The last two books could’ve been combined to form a short little ending and fitted into the first one itself 😂.
