Tag, You’re It! Totally Should’ve Tag

Big thanks to Kirstie @ozbooksnail for tagging me in this fun little book tag!  Click here to head over and check out her blog.  I must admit, I’ve never done one of these before.  Hopefully I wont botch it and bring shame to the Cover2CoverMom name 🙂

Here goes nothing…

1) Totally should have a sequel

I would love for this book to have had a sequel.  I can’t explain why without ruining the book, but I would love to see what happened with the characters after The Time Traveler’s Wife ended.

2) Totally should’ve had a spin off series…

I would have loved for Jane Austen to have written a spin off of Pride and Prejudice.  I would have liked for her to write about the different sisters and their lives, specifically Jane Bennet 🙂

3) Totally should’ve ended differently…

Obviously I can’t say too much or I would spoil the bad ending for those who have not yet read this book… I will just say that I enjoyed the first 2 books in this series, but I struggled through this one.  It’s not that I disagreed with the ending per se, however I just didn’t care for how the author executed it.

4) Totally should’ve had a film franchise…

Into the Wilderness is my favorite historical fiction series and I would LOVE for it to be made into a movie, along with the 5 other books in the series 🙂  If you like HF, I strongly urge you to check out this series.  You won’t regret it!

5) Totally should’ve had a TV show…

Obviously I know there have been film adaptations of Little Women, but I think it would be a fantastic TV series… I remember watching the movie adaptation with my Grandmother when I was a little girl.  Since I was sort of a tomboy growing up, of course my favorite character was Jo.   Actually, I read the book for the first time this past month and wish I would not have put it off so long.   It was better than the movie!  I think the Little Women series would make for a good TV show, especially since shows like “Downtown Abbey” have done so well.

6) Totally should’ve had only one point of view…


7) Totally should’ve changed the cover…

I’m not even sure what is going on here.  This is definitely one of those times you should not judge a book by its cover… ((shakes head))

8) Totally should’ve stopped reading…

I have 2 books for this category…


I totally should’ve just given up on this book.  I tried reading this book after the play adaptation was such a huge hit.   Everyone loves the play, so the book had to be good right?  Wrong!  It was like a slow torture… I kept reading because I thought it had to get better…I kept thinking I was missing something?  I don’t think so.  I loved the concept of this book, but it was a big flop for me.


I wish I would never have wasted my time on this book.  I was appalled by the popularity of this series, and can’t understand why women would want to read a novel where the lead male character is a sadistic woman hater… Ladies, would you want your children reading this book?  Would you want your children to think this is how men should treat women? I will never understand sadism and the craze that was the 50 Shades of Grey series…

9) Totally should’ve kept the original cover…

Not going to lie, I couldn’t think of one for this category either…

And now back to your regularly scheduled tag post…

10) Totally should have not pre-judged

I don’t typically read biographies or memoirs, so I went into this book with hesitation.   I am so glad that I picked this book up and went for it.  I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful this book was!  I did not feel like I was reading a memoir, but rather a wonderfully written piece of fiction.  You should definitely check it out!

  1. Yay! Awesome responses 🙂 I TOTALLY agree with the Great Gatsby *gags*. And I may just be running over to Goodreads go check out this Into the Wilderness book now. It would’ve been amaaaazing to explore the P&P characters more! I read a really cool book last year, Longbourn by Jo Baker, which is the story ‘retold’ from the perspective of the house servants. It’s was such a great book!

  2. I didn’t actually think about “Pride and Prejudice” having a spin-off series until now… And I kinda, sorta, LOVE it 😀 I would probably really enjoy reading about Jane Bennett’s life or even Lydia’s. I think both would make for an entertaining series 😛
