Lemme start off by thanking the wonderful Hufsa at The Clockwork Millennial for tagging me in this fun little tag game! It’s exactly what it sounds like. In each “Should’ve” scenario, I pick books that fit it!
…Gotten a Sequel
BUT I NEED ANOTHER BOOK LIKE YESTERDAY.
Seriously, I loved the end of this book/series. It was so awesome, the whole thing, beginning to end. But I seriously need to know what happens to everyone after.
I NEED MORE!!!! GET ON IT, BLAKE!!
…Had a Spin-Off Series
I am picking the Paranormalcy trilogy by Kiersten White as the series that I’d love a spin-off series for. I liked the end, it was well done & everything was pretty much all tied up. But I could use so much more of Evie & Lend. SO MUCH MORE. They’re my faves.
Overall, I liked it as an end to the Twilight saga, but the entire book built up to this epic battle that…..never happened.
AND I AM STILL VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THAT FACT.
That’s actually the one thing I loved about the last movie. They gave us an awesome battle that, yea, never really happened, but it was what I wanted in the book but never got.
Thank you, movie people!!!
…Had a Film Franchise
IT WOULD BE SO RAD.
…Had a TV Show
I would LOVE to see The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin as a TV show. The mystery, the romance, the extreme SUSPENCE!!! I’d watch it every night. I feel like maybe Netflix could be the best way to do it.
Anybody know anyone from Netflix? I need to pitch this.
…Had One Point of View
Imma have to agree with Hufsa on this one. I really wanted to strangle Four through most of Allegiant, he drove me crazy. His POV kinda seemed unnecesary & maybe if it hadn’t been there I wouldn’t have hated him so much.
Or maybe it would’ve been worse, who knows?
…Had a Cover Change
This one took a minute to figure out. I have quite a lot of books and, I’m not gonna lie, I’m very easy to please with cover art. A lot of the ones I looked through were gorgeous to me. Then I remembered the one my mother let me borrow.
I don’t HATE the cover of Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman, but it could definitely use something a little…..more beautiful, I guess? It’s kind of a strange cover. Like, it makes sense with how the book is about twins & one of them disappeared, but still.
There is really only one book that I really wish I had just put down & never picked back up, but I didn’t. I read it all the way through, & I hated it. The whole thing.
Every. Single. Page.
…Kept the Covers
Here are the beautiful initial covers:
And here are the ugly alternative covers:
Need I say more?
Totally Shouldn’t Have Pre-Judged
Divergent by Veronica Roth is a book that I assumed would be awful & that I would hate it because, at the time, I was very anti-dystopian novels. I just really didn’t like the genre at the time. But my friend Megan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
She told me to buy it, & if I ended up actually hating it, she’d buy it from me for the exact price that I paid for it initially. It’s like, how could I say no? Either way, I win. And I’m glad I went through with it, cause she was right. It’s an awesome series, & I love it.
I’m still not quite comfortable with tagging people just yet. Imma tag a couple people here, but anyone that feels like it should totally play!! And let me know so I can make sure I read it!
This was actually a little harder than I anticipated going in.
Lots of thinking required!
