Tag Week: Totally Should’ve Tag

Next up for Tag Week, I received the Totally Should’ve Book Tag from the amazing Liz over at Out of Coffee, Out of Mind. Thanks so much for tagging me, Liz!

Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel
Hmm. This is kind of a difficult question for me, because the majority of the books I read are already in series and therefore already have sequ--



Totally Should’ve Had A Spin-Off Series

This actually is getting a spin-off prequel, but, while the story is definitely interesting, it’s not the one I was desperate for when I finished Rebels. I don’t need a whole series, though. I just want a book, one book, that explains some certain things about a certain character, because I feel like there are SO MANY unanswered questions about him, and I am a flailing fangirl and I need these questions answered. So.

An Author Who Totally Should Write More Books

Clare Vanderpool writes the most engaging, gorgeous historicals. Rather than focusing on super-big issues like war or tragedy, she picks certain characters and tells their specific story, thereby weaving in the big-name issues around them. It’s just so intricate and perfect.... *sighs* <3

A Character Who Totally Should’ve Ended Up With Someone Else
Uh... Surprisingly, I can’t think of any couples that I absolutely HATE together (generally, if I hate them, I hate them as people too). I mean, there are some that I don’t love together, but there aren’t many that I absolutely hate as a couple (except maybe Laurie and Amy).

My younger sister, though, suggested Neville and Luna from Harry Potter, that they should’ve been a couple instead of the random people they ended up with. So I’m just going to go with that.

Totally Should’ve Ended Differently

Full disclosure, it’s been a while since I read Mockingjay, and I still haven’t gotten up the courage to see the last movie, so I suppose it’s conceivably possible that I’d feel different about it now. But. Seeing as I still remember the despondency and pain I felt four years ago after finishing that beautiful but depressing book, I’m at least going to say that there were a lot of people in there who totally should’ve not died--especially not the ways that they did.

Totally Should’ve Had A Movie Franchise

The movies that are called Percy Jackson are not the real Percy Jackson. They are some other story someone concocted that just happens to bear the Percy Jackson name. (although, full disclosure, if you look at them that way, they actually aren’t awful movies).

Totally Should’ve Had A TV Show

So technically, this one already has a lot of cinematic media, but I think this particular movie would’ve worked a lot better as a TV show. In my opinion, the biggest thing that felt off was the pacing of it all, and I think that if it had been made into a TV show instead, that problem would’ve more or less fixed itself.

Totally Should’ve Had Only One Point of View
Um... I don’t really have one for this? Though I have come across books where the multiple POVs could’ve been done better, I don’t think I’ve ever read one where I felt like they absolutely shouldn’t have had the second (or third or fourth or fifth *cough* looking at you, Rick *cough*) point of view.

Totally Should Have a Cover Change

I... just don’t like these. Especially the last one. Something about her just doesn’t look right to me

Totally Should Have Kept The Original Covers

I don’t strictly hate the new covers (I actually think it's pretty cool how they all join together to make one big picture), but I do like the old ones better.

Totally Should’ve Stopped At Book One
I’m reluctant to answer this one because, though I know I’ve read series where the first book was great and the second one not so much, I don’t really want to say the author definitely should’ve stopped at book one.

I Totally Should’ve Stopped Reading
So the thing for me is that if I feel like if I should stop reading, I do. Unless it’s a review copy and I have to finish it, I go by my 100-pages rule: I read 100 pages and if it just hasn’t grabbed me by then, I put it up. So yeah. If I feel like I should’ve stopped reading, I probably did; and if I didn’t, I already posted a poor review, so no need to go through that again. :)

Totally Should Have Not Prejudged

Because it’s my current obsession, and I can’t go too many posts without mentioning it.

And that’s the tag! Thanks so much for tagging me, Liz! It was a blast! :D

For my part, I tag Heather, Shar, and Aimee! Don’t feel obligated, but if you want to do the tag, voila! And if you want to do it and I didn’t tag you, feel free, and leave a link to your post in the comments. :)

Can’t wait to see all of your answers! :D

  1. In some ways I feel like Narnia just isn't well-suited to the movies... I mean, it isn't that they're bad movies or anything, but it's like there's a whole lot of world that would need exploring in a TV show but at the same time I'm not convinced there'd be enough plot to make it as engaging as it would be when we compress it into two hours.

    I agree that Percy Jackson should have had a better movie franchise, and also that if it were not about people named Percy and Annabeth and Grover it would be pretty good.



    Also, thanks for tagging me! :D I shall get to this business pretty soon. :)

    1. True. But I don't think the whole series should've been made into a TV series, just the way that particular movie was done, I think it would've worked well as a TV or mini-series.

      Haha, bascially. :)


      You're welcome! And yay, can't wait to see it! :D

  2. I think Narnia would have been a great tv series!

    1. :D It would be so cool if that could still happen!

  3. Guess I have to see Hamilton. I've heard nothing but raves from everyone who has seen it.

    1. I think you should if you get the chance! Though I actually haven't seen it, just listened to the songs multiple times and memorized each one, lol. But yeah, it's pretty fantastic from what I've heard!

  4. I think I would like to do the tag, and thank you! OMG I ship Neville and Luna so hard, and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader was not a great movie. I felt like they changed the plot a lot and tried to add all of this drama that would make it more appealing. And the drama and subplots aren't the point of Narnia. It's more simple than that, and was written a while ago when these demands weren't a thing . I loved the books though. And I have heard so much about hamilton I don't know why I haven't watched it.

    1. Yay! Can't wait to see your version! :D

      Yeah, they are pretty cute. :)

      Yeah. I didn't think it was terrible, but it definitely could've been better. And *nods* Absolutely true. The simplicity without all the drama and stuff is half of what made Narnia so beautiful.

      Well, I actually haven't seen it. Just listened to it a hundred million times, lol. But yeah, if you get a chance, I think it's great! :D There is some language, and a little sexual stuff, though, if that sort of thing bothers you. :)

  5. Yeah, I agree. Mocking jay should have ended differently. The ending was too dis-satisfactory for me :/

    1. Yeah. :/ The epilogue was nice, but all the deaths and stuff... it was painful.
