Totally Should’ve Book Tag

I’ve seen this tag go around YouTube lately and decided it would be fun to do on the blog so here we go!

Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

Soundless by Richelle Mead just because it appeared to be so short and because you’re kind of accustomed to expect a sequel from Richelle Mead aha 

Totally should’ve had a spin off series

This kind of might be cheating but Percy Jackson, the Trials of Apollo is coming out so my wishes have been granted I guess.

An author who totally should write more books

Jennifer Niven! All The Bright Places is one of my absolute favourite books

A character who totally should’ve ended up with someone else

This series isn’t finished yet but I believe Nathan from the Half Wild series totally needs to end up with Gabriel.

Totally should’ve ended differently

Lol Allegiant. People who’ve read the book know exactly what I’m on about.

Totally should’ve had a movie franchise

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, I think it can be turned into such a beautiful film

Totally should’ve had a TV show

The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater. The boys, the cars and the magic!

Totally should’ve had only one point of view

Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi just because the two POVs’ voices didn’t seem distinct at all and it just ended up making me confused as to who was speaking!

 Totally should have a cover change

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, I’ve never been a big fan of these series.

 Totally should’ve kept the original covers

Hmm I’m not too sure on this one but the new covers of the Percy Jackson series seem pretty childish.

Totally should’ve stopped at book one

I’ve only read book one of this series and stopped but Splintered by A.G.Howard, it just drags on so much!

I tag anyone who’s up for doing this tag!

12 Days of Books Tag

In the spirit of the holidays and the fact that I’m doing Blogmas I decided it’s due time for a tag. I’ve been posting everyday so far and will continue to do so and I hope you enjoy the wave of content coming your way!

This tag was created by Falling down the book hole so thank you and you guys should definitely check them out!

On the first day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
A Partridge in a Pear Tree  : The Partridge Stood Alone In The Pear Tree? What is Your Favorite Stand Alone?

Oh God. This is harder than I realized. I’m already in a mental struggle. Okay, it’s a tie between Perks of Being a Wallflower, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Book Thief. Depends on my mood I guess, whether I’m feeling historic or classicy. See, I’m not the sort of person that has one determined favorite so this question was tough.

Although my favorite from this year in particular would have to be We Were Liars. A tragic story with a twist about privilege and deeper struggles. Check it out. No regrets.

On the second day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Two Turtle Doves : Love Is In The Air, Who Is You OTP?

My OTP without a doubt would have to be Eleanor and Park. The emotions between those two are so strong and oh the feels! It’s just so beautiful, their relationship.

On the third day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Three French Hens :  In The Spirit Of Threes, What Is The Best Trilogy Your Have Read?

The Anna and the French Kiss companion novels. I’m not one for contemporary or romance but this series had me so invested which is pretty impressive. The last book Isla and the Happily ever after released this year and it was an epic conclusion.

On the fourth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Four Calling Birds : Since Series Usually Consist of Four or More Books What Is Your Favorite Series?

This did not even take me a second to decide. Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus is my favorite series ever. It’s adventure meets adolescence struggle plus Rick Riordan, the author’s sarcastic humor has me in fits every time so, can’t go wrong with that.

 On the fifth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Five Golden Rings : One Ring To Rule Them All! Who is Your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?

It would  have to be Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones. Just because I feel like she brings a different perspective to the game and she is who she is partly because of the circumstance she is in. So I feel like I can connect with her in a twisted way so yeah.

On the sixth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Six Geese a Laying : Creation Is A Beautiful Thing! What is Your Favorite World/World-Building?

I highly enjoy the world building in The Lunar Chronicles because it’s Dystopian and robotic and there is all this cool technology and space travel oh.

But my favorite world would have to be The Game of Thrones. It is a pretty tragic place I know but I just love historic places and adding a magical element to it just makes it even better!

On the seventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Seven Swans a Swimming: Who Needs Seven Swans When All It Takes Is One Good Animal Sidekick To Make A Hero Rock! Who Is Your Favorite Animal Sidekick?

I don’t think I’ve read many books with animal sidekicks or animals at all. I would have to choose Iko who is a robot from again the Lunar Chronicles. She is super adorable and the most hilarious ultimate fangirl.

On the eighth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Eight Maids a Milking: Milk Is So 18th Century! Which Book or Series Takes Beverages/Food To A Whole New Level?

Now that I think about it I also don’t read many books with food in it. Which is odd for such a massive foodie like myself. The only series I can think of is Game of Thrones. Classic medieval food. Boar and wild birds and pies with live pigeons in them, just so extravagant.

On the ninth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Nine Ladies Dancing : Dancing is Just One Skill of a Lady! Who is Your Favorite Kickass Female Lead?

Oh man this is so insanely difficult. Strong female protagonists are a thing in YA right now so they’re literally in every second novel I read. I’ll list my top five in no particular order:

Arya Stark- Game of Thrones. Sneaky sword master that one

Cinder- The Lunar Chronicles, she would make such a good leader

Sydney Sage- Bloodlines series, Intelligent and logical Sydney is smart and efficient and knows how to kick some ass

Ringer- The fifth wave series, hardened by pain and suffering I am rooting for Ringer all the way

On the tenth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Ten Lords a Leaping: Leaping Lords? How About Who Is Your Favorite Leading Lad?

My Leading Lad is Richard Gansey from the Raven Cycle series. He is classy, intelligent, rich and knows how to get things done. Actually now that I think about it I love all the Raven Boys except for Adam who doesn’t faze me too much. But Ronan and Gansey are totally kick ass

On the eleventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Eleven Pipers Piping: Where Would We Be Without Music? What Is Your Favorite Book or Bookish Thing That Deals With Music? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)

We would be in the black hole without music to be honest. I love the incorporation of music into Eleanor and Park. It’s an element that brings those two together and strengthens their relationship which is so freakingly adorable.

I absolutely love If I stay, the book and the movie. If you don’t know it is ALL about music. Classical, rock you name it. Music also empowers the protagonist Mia and in the end heals her. So it’s great

On the twelfth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
12 Drummers Drumming: Drum Roll Please…………………….What Is Your Favorite Read of This Year?

Wow that is the hardest question ever. As mentioned before I don’t do one favorite so I’m gonna have to make like a 50 page long list. Jokes. But you get the idea. To name a few though would be We Were Liars, Half Bad and Isla and the Happily ever after.

That is it for the 12 days of books tag! I hope you enjoyed reading through my answers and thanks to Falling down the book hole for such awesome questions! I encourage you to do this tag and leave a link in the comments so I can have a read of your answers

Until tomorrow. Have a nice life 🙂
