Totally Didn’t Book Tag

This is possibly my favourite tag yet, the sass is just on point. Prepare for all the shade, and thanks a lot to Leisha for the tag!

The Totally Didn’t Book Tag

Totally Didn’t Need A Sequel

The Hunger Games

Going to go Controversial here and say The Hunger Games. I know, I know everyone loves them, and the films are great but did really need two more books of Katniss going slightly mad, a very squeezed in their love triangle and the ending that just destroyed everyone?! If you ask me I was totally happy leaving the people Panem being miserable.

Totally Didn’t Need More than One POV

A Conjuring of Light

Because, let’s face it, did we really care what Holland was thinking?

Totally Didn’t Need To Change the Cover Art Mid Way Through the Series

Legendary UK Paperback

Um, why was this orange? And what was with the sandcastle? How did they go from the amazing Caravel paperback to that?! Grim.

Totally Didn’t Need A Love

City of Bones

Does anything need a love triangle? I mean, does any book really need two men basing their entire self worth on a woman who is indecisive and would be a much stronger female character if she remained single.

Buuut City of Bones. Now that took the cake. The love triangle was more of a line and the girl still leads them both on. Despite only actually liking on guy and settling for messing around her best friend. Great romancing Clary.

Totally Didn’t Need This Book in the Series

The Dream Thieves

I know, I know, everyone loves Ronan, but what was the point in this book? We could have explained Ronan’s power in a chapter. They just kept making problems for themselves, got no closer to their Welsh King and completely ignored the big betrayal at the end of the last book. And why was Gansey so focussed on his rowing team?

Totally Didn’t Need A Cliff Hanger

Children of Blood and Bone

That ending was just. Really confusing. But so good. And when is the next one out???

Totally Didn’t Need That Much Hype

Throne of Glass

Is anyone surprised my answer here? I think we all know which hyped book most disappointed me.

Totally Didn’t Need A ‘For Fans of x’ Sticker on the Cover

To Kill A Kingdom

This is literally never needed. Especially when they say the author is the next JK Rowling, um hello, no pressure but here’s a standard you can never live up to. Also how is To Kill a Kingdom at all like Throne of Glass? For one thing, one was actually good.

Totally Didn’t Deserve My Time

Red Queen

Not only did the premise feel super overdone, and Mare was a carbon copy of Katniss, but why did all the girls hate each other? Why were the boys built up to be strong leaders who give advice and only want to get the job done while the girls attend tea parties and gossip and are just super catty and useless. It was like reading Mean Girls but without the realisation that women should build each other up at the end.

So there you have it! A list of sass and shade that I had far too much fun writing. I’m actually going to do the tagging part of this post over on Twitter, but if you want to add all this sass to your blog then consider yourself tagged. I’ll be back on Tuesday with another Top Ten Tuesday list post, all about my auto buy authors so stay tuned for that.

Would you Rather…? The Spooky Edition Tag

Thank you Norrie for tagging me in this spooky Halloween would you rather tag!

๐ŸŽƒ Thrillers or Supernatural(s)?

I think magic and all that counts as supernatural and since fantasy is sort of my jam then this one is easy.

๐ŸŽƒ Ghosts or Zombies?

Ghosts! I’ve read so many cool ghosts and they’re always happy and friendly. Who wouldn’t want to meet Casper?! ๐Ÿ‘ป

๐ŸŽƒ Vampires or Werewolves?

I would have to go Werewolves because Lupin was pretty cool. But I’m not a massive fan of either.

๐ŸŽƒ Witches or Monsters

This wasn’t originally monsters but they needed a shout out. Best villains ever.

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather read a book with 13 chapters or a book with a black cat on the cover?

If the one with the cat on the front a Warriors then I’d read that… Otherwise don’t judge a book by it’s cover ๐Ÿ˜‰ or its… chapter numbers… ๐Ÿคจ

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather read a spooky book in the dark with only a candle for light or by yourself in a locked brightly lit room?

I know this really isn’t in the spirit of the tag but can we cut the spooky? How about a nice murder mystery or happy rebellion. I’m so down for a tyrannical government and some plucky teenage heroin.

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather face your worst fears or be trapped in the mind of a killer?

Ok so we CLEARLY couldn’t cut the spooky. Ummmm I’d go worse fear since I’m pretty sure it’s something silly like a train delay before an exam. What can I say, I live a pretty bland life?

Or it might be velociraptor since I had a scary dream about them prowling around the tube. I made the mistake of telling my work friends and THEY KEEP SENDING ME VELOCIRAPTOR GIFS!! My boyfriend also keeps making velociraptor noises at me, it’s possible people aren’t taking this very real fear seriously.

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather watch a scary movie or read a scary book?

Scary movie. It’s over quicker and I can hide behind my friends when things get scary. Although, they might get scared too so possibly we’re all going behind the sofa.

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather read spooky books during the fall time or all year?

Um never. Again, can we get back to magic kingdoms, super powers and sinister regimes?!

๐ŸŽƒ Would you rather read 10 spooky books in October or 10 spooky books all year?

I can possibly achieve one scary book a year if I have enough hot chocolate, snacks and chick flicks to watch after. Ten is a stretch, regardless of the month.
