Totally Didn’t Book Tag (aka the rantiest of the tags)

We all love to rant, so here we go! Here’s a tag all about books that should’ve had several seats and just NOT.

Also, shoutout to Literary Leisha’s post bc that’s where I first found this! Go check out her blog bc she’s incredible!

Totally didn’t need to have a sequel(s)

Jurassic Park. Easy. I love the movie franchise and am all for those sequels but the original book is so full of just rampant sexism that I can’t get behind Michael Crichton writing anything ever again.

Totally didn’t need to have more than one POV

Okay, I’m not gonna lie. I really like multiple POV stories and haven’t read any that didn’t benefit in some way from multi-POV.

Totally didn’t need to change the cover art in the middle of the series

RIP to the OG victim of awful cover changes: Across the Universe by Beth Revis. The first two covers were gorgeous and fitting for the story. Then they changed the cover of the last one and it was the ugliest cover I’ve probably ever seen. I will never not be mad about it lol

Totally didn’t need a love triangle

I will stand by this answer for the rest of my life: the Age of Legends series by Kelley Armstrong. KA is probably my favorite author but the random introduction of a love triangle more than halfway through the last book of the trilogy and the abandoning of the quality relationship she’s been building for two and a half books will always make me salty.

Totally didn’t need this book to be in the series

Like half of the issues in the Fence graphic novel series. A good number of them are just following one match of people not part of the main cast and they’re just throwaway/filler issues in my opinion.

Totally didn’t need a cliffhanger

The Giver. Mostly I’m mad about this because I read this in middle school for class and we never continued the series so we just left it hanging. Plus, I feel like it could’ve just been a standalone if the ending was wrapped up. But alas.

Totally didn’t need just one POV

Girls of Paper in Fire, in my opinion, would’ve been so much more interesting if it had Wren’s POV in there as well. Tbh Lei is super boring and I desperately wanted to know more about the other girls over her.

Totally didn’t need that much hype

The. Cruel. Prince. It’s meh at best. Nuff said.

Totally didn’t need a relative book reference (e.g. Hunger Games fans will love Divergent)

Let’s be real, anything that gets compared to HP is just setting itself up for failure.

Totally didn’t deserve my time

I have many, but just off the top of my head:
Fallen by Lauren Kate
Mary B by Katherine Chen
Final Draft by Riley Redgate
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
