I haven’t done a tag in forever! So I decided I would do one now! All I did was go into the WordPress Reader and scrolled until I found a tag! So the first tag I found was the Totally Should’ve Book Tag and The Book Dutchesses is who posted it.
Let’s jump in!
1. Totally should’ve…..gotten a sequel
I do love that this was a standalone as YA Fantasy standalone’s are rare, but also this book was amazing and I wanted more.
2. Totally should’ve…… had a spin-off series
Do I really need to explain myself?
3. Totally should’ve……who totally should write more books
This is Alwyn Hamilton’s debut and it was bloody amazing!! So I need something else from her!
4. Totally should’ve……ended differently
There is one specific thing that should have been different at the end of this book! But I don’t want to spoil anyway, sooo….
5. Totally should’ve……had a movie franchise
I am not going to answer this but knowing how a lot of book to movie adaptations go, they ruin it. So no.
But a book that would make a cool movie would be Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
6. Totally should’ve……had a TV series
Same as for the movie. I don’t want it ruined but a book that would make an awesome TV show if done correctly would be The Menagerie Series by Tui T Sutherland & Kari Sutherland
7. Totally should’ve……had one point of view
I wouldn’t necessarily say this should have had only 1 POV, but less than it did might have been nice to connect with the characters more. I do love multi POV books though.
8. Totally should’ve……had a cover change
These covers are just no!! I honestly prefer the 10th year anniversary & movie covers (below) to these. But none of them are great. Out of all of them, the movie cover is the best-looking one and that is saying something! This series is amazing can we please do something about these shitty covers though!
9. Totally should’ve……kept the original covers
I have a couple.
First off, I don’t hate the cover change itself as the new UK covers are awesome too. But it pisses me off that they changed it mid way through a series! If you’re going to do that, still come out with the next books as a matching cover. and the new covers. Like Alwyn Hamilton did with Rebel of the Sands!
Next, I know both are still available but the first covers are gorgeous!!
10. Totally should’ve……stopped at one book
Okay, so for this one it should have stopped after the second book.
I really enjoyed Firstlife & Lifeblood but Everlife, my god! It read like a fucking Adult romance 80% of the time! And it’s meant to be a YA fantasy. It was just bad.
I usually don’t tag specific people, but I thought fuck it. Why not, so I tag:
