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!

Top 5 Wednesday | Top 5 Jokesters

Here we go again posting Wednesday posts on Thursday but hey living life on the edge right?

While I was trying to remember five funny characters from the books I’ve read I came to the revelation that I don’t read funny books. Hm maybe humour is a genre I need to explore further.

Without further ado let’s meet some jokesters!

Name: Leo Valdez

Book: Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Jokester Qualities: Bad puns, goofyness, saying funny things in serious situations

Quote:

I’m the super-sized Mc-Sizzle man! I’m Leo Valdez bad boy supreme. And the ladies love a bad boy

The next one is a jokester in a slightly more charming way…

Name: Adrian Ivashkov

Book: Vampire Academy/ Bloodlines

Jokester Qualities: Swoony one-liners and hotness au-naturale

Quote

Next Up!

Name: Kvothe

Book: The Name of the Wind

Jokester Qualities: witty one-liners, sarcasm, insult

Quote

It wasn’t even a good note. ‘If you are reading this I am probably dead.’ What sort of a note is that?

I think we can all agree on the next one

Name: Percy Jackson

Book: Percy Jackson and the Olympians+ Heroes of Olympus

Jokester Qualities: Sarcasm, general goofyness

Quote

So the topic doesn’t specify whether it’s book characters or not so I decided to add an author in there..

Name: John Green

Books: I’m too lazy to type them all out okay

Jokester Qualities: I mean it’s John Green, he could write a math equation and it would be funny

Those are my top five funny guys!

What’s your idea of a jokester?

Book reviews

Blood of Olympus- NO SPOILERS review

Author: Rick Riordan5b630-ukboo

Genre:Fantasy

Pages: 502

Summary: 

Seven heroic Demigods.

One final Quest

The greatest sacrifice yet

I’m honestly struggling with where to begin because there’s everything and nothing I want to talk about. The Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus series always are and will be my favorite books.

I grew up with these books and I promise you it’s not childish or anything. It’s like education but FUN, i mean isn’t that what we wish school would be?

The writing

Rick Riordan’s writing recipe goes something like: a dash of sarcasm accompanied by humor with the kicking flavors of an occasional cliff hanger and a roller coaster of emotions that leaves you questioning your life.

The story

Blood of Olympus like every other book by this genius author is an absolute page turner. Filled with adventure this book will take you through historic Pompeii, ancient ruins and the far corners of literature where the plot of the Odyssey will actually make sense for once.

Are we onto my favorite bit yet? YES WE ARE!

The characters

If you like making friends (who doesn’t) head over and read this book. No honestly, this book contains some of my best friends and I don’t even find that weird.

Ranging from teenagers with mighty strength and superpowers to Gods with funny personalities the Blood of Olympus sees characters old and new forming alliances to create this action packed story.

I mean these people might seem all high and mighty but they have depth and wisdom and struggling backgrounds but despite all this they manage to grow. Incorporating real world emotional struggle into a mythological world is the reason The Heroes of Olympus has become possibly my favorite books ever.

On a parting note, if you haven’t got the message already, you NEED to pick these books up.

It’s bittersweet because I got a satisfactory conclusion (more on that in the spoiler post) but I’m still sad to be separated from my best friends. I’ll miss looking forward to these books every year.
