Totally Should’ve Book Tag


Welcome to the first tag post of the year. This tag is the Totally Should’ve Book Tag and I was tagged by Michaela at Journey Into Books . I think I have seen this tag go around the blogosphere so I’m glad to finally get to it!

So, let’s just get right in!

Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel

Most of the books I love as standalones end up getting a sequel anyway but one I wish had a sequel was The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Now I’m sure I did hear rumours of a sequel at one point but nothing happened, which was a real shame. I think this world would benefit from a sequel because it is such an interesting concept and it has far-reaching consequences. I also loved this book more than I expected to and I wanted more from it.

Totally Should’ve Had A Spin-off Series.

I just need more of Zuzana and Mik. Also I would love to know more about the story from Eliza’s perspective because I really liked her in Dreams of Gods and Monsters, and she didn’t get as much recognition as I would have liked.

Totally Should’ve Finished Differently

I just need or want a certain character to not die.

Totally Should’ve Had A Film Franchise

I have no idea for this one considering a lot of the book series I do like have films or tv series.

Totally Should’ve Had A TV Show

Similarly to the film question, I don’t really know. However, I am highly anticipating the tv show for A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness because I’ve been wanting an expansion of this world for a while now and it’s finally coming!

I also think the world inhabited by Illuminae, Gemina and the anticipated Obsidio would make for a great TV show.

Totally Should’ve Had One Point of View.

I’m usually okay when it comes to multiple POVs but I got incredibly lost by The Casual Vacancy and I really didn’t enjoy it.

Totally Should’ve Had A Cover Change.

I can’t think of any because most of the books I have and know of – especially series – tend to get a cover change anyway.

Totally Should’ve Stopped Reading.

Multiple answer alert for this question!

I really didn’t like any of these books. I found them all to be boring and I stupidly read them until the very end in case they improved.

Totally Should’ve Kept The Cover.

Oh, what an easy question.

I don’t like the original covers (which I unfortunately have and can’t afford to replace) and I’m not the greatest fan of the most recent covers, even though it runs across the entire Shadowhunter universe. However, I loved these minimalist covers that TMI came out with a few years ago. They don’t have people on the cover, which is a bit of a pet-peeve of mine, and they’re pretty. We all love the pretty covers and I think if these had been given more of a chance, they would have lasted longer. It’s a shame really.

Totally Shouldn’t Have Prejudged.


By this I’m saying that I shouldn’t have prejudged The Language of Thorns to be absolutely amazing because it fell a little flat for me. I did like it but I wasn’t as mad for it as I wanted to be.

And that slight disappointment ends this tag.

I don’t know how many of you have done this tag so I’m going to say if you’re reading this and haven’t done it, you are tagged!

Thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!

    1. I don’t think they were out for very long. I love them and at one point I was going to replace mine with a set of those. It’s just a huge shame they didn’t last very long as they are pretty and so much nicer than any of the other covers.


      1. Maybe. I’ve already got two copies of TMI anyway (English and French) so unless something drastic happens to one of them, I don’t really need them, no matter how much I want them. I also don’t have the space either!

      2. I guess it’s difficult to justify multiple versions of the same book! 😂 I don’t own them at all though so I will have to keep on the look-out 👀

      3. Yeah. The only justifications I have of owning multiple versions is when one is a physical copy and the other an e-book. In fact, that means I will then have 3 versions if TMI!

        Maybe you can find them somewhere. You might have to do some digging though.

    1. Yeah they are! So pretty! I don’t think I’ve heard of the Dream Circus before. I’ve got The Night Circus but Dream Circus is a new one for me.
