Thank you Icebreaker694 for tagging me in this!
NUMBER ONE: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE GOTTEN A SEQUEL”
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. The world that this novel is set in is so fascinating. I really want to know more about the Hemsworths and the world that they came from – I’d love to see a sequel exploring that.
NUMBER TWO: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE GOTTEN A SPIN-OFF SERIES”
Baz – from Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I was not a big fan of this book at all, but Bax completely stole my heart. I would love to have a novel just following the shenanigans of Baz.
NUMBER THREE: “AN AUTHOR THAT TOTALLY SHOULD WRITE MORE BOOKS”
J. K. ROWLING GIVE ME MORE HARRY POTTER BOOKS (NONE OF THIS PLAY NONSENSE) – I NEED YOUNG MARAUDERS STORIES, STORIES FROM OTHER WIZARDING SCHOOLS, AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF.
NUMBER FOUR: “A CHARACTER THAT TOTALLY SHOULD’VE ENDED UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE”
Zinzi not ending up with her boyfriend in Zoo City and driving off to find his wife broke my heart. After everything she went through she wasn’t allowed a happy ending.
NUMBER FIVE: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE ENDED DIFFERENTLY”
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman! Again I’m back on the happy endings thing. Why can’t authors let good characters live happily! Will and Lyra should have been able to live together, it hurts my heart too much knowing that they didn’t.
NUMBER SIX: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A MOVIE FRANCHISE”
The Temeraire series by Naomi Novik. I’m only on the second book in this series and I’m already appalled at the fact that these books don’t have any films based around them.
NUMBER SEVEN: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD ONLY ONE POINT OF VIEW”
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (I seem to be raging a lot about her today). This book also really wound me up – there were multiple chapters where from E and P’s point of view were almost identical, it was interesting the first time round but it got annoying very quickly. Even if it didn’t loose the multiple POVs this book should definitely lose that element.
NUMBER EIGHT: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE HAD A COVER CHANGE”
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. The British cover is ridiculous. It totally misrepresents what is inside. (You can’t see it in the picture above but there’s a crazy red glow coming out of his eyes).
NUMBER NINE: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE KEPT THE ORIGINAL COVERS”
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. The American covers are awesome, but the British ones are not so good. However I’m not prepared to wait for the American ones to become available over here when Windwitch comes out so I’m going to have to get the British version.
NUMBER TEN: “TOTALLY SHOULD’VE STOPPED AT BOOK ONE”
I can think of so many films that would fit into this category but no books come to mind right now! Sorry guys!
Hope you’re having a fab day,
