Predict The Title! #1

So. I've been thinking about Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. As one does when they have nothing better to do and there exists a book with sexy guys and kickass girls and crazy cool superpowers. We already have the title for the desperately coveted sequel - Losing Lila - but what about the third book? You can't tell me I'm not the only one who's considered possible names?

So, I figure I might do a weekly (or randomly-posted) game where we brainstorm title ideas for books we're most desperately awaiting!

I have one clear favourite for book #3:

BEDDING LILA

Fine, so the original was more of a ffffffff sounding word, but you know... this is a PG blog and all. And Screwing Lila just sounds nasty. I was also considering Deflowering Lila, because it just feels more expressive, but Bedding fits in more with the previous titles, don't you think?

ANYWAY. Think about it. Bedding Lila. It would obviously involve Alex Wakeman. NAKED. SWEATY. FLASHING HIS ABS. Come on, we need to finish what they were TOTALLY starting during that bed scene in Hunting Lila! I really feel like Sarah was foreshadowing book 3's title. Anyone with me?

What are your predictions for the title of book 3?

    1. Oh goodness.... I clearly invited this... LOL.

    2. Yes. Yes you did. Haha! :)

      Seriously though, I hope Sarah writes a third book. AGH!

      Delete
    3. SHE BETTER! I think she might have? WAIT. I'm not even sure. I just presumed Lila was 3 books because practically every book series released these days is 3 haha.

      I WANT MOOOOOORE ALEX/LILA steaminess!

      Delete
    4. I love how the book could be called Undressing Lila. As if it would take Alex around 300 pages to do that. ;) ;) ;)

  4. Fisting Lila.

    Or my more sensible response...

    Drowning Lila.

    1. First "Killing Lila" and now "Drowning Lila"

      WHAT THE HECK DO YOU HAVE AGAINST THE POOR GIRL?! :(

      I hear she gets pretty crazy with a knife. Watch yo' self, boy.

      Delete
    2. WAIT NO.

      THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

      AND THEN ALEX RUNS IN AND SAVES THE DAY (without a shirt on, or maybe he was just back from Bedding Lila y'know?) AND EVERYTHING IS EXTREMELY HOT.

      And they don't manage to fist, kill or drown Lila. And Alex is VERY hot.
      God I could read about 600 pages of that.

      Delete
    3. Why Drowning Lila? D:

      LOL at Brodie's "I hear she gets pretty crazy with a knife. Watch yo' self, boy." Good one!

      Delete
    4. OMG YES. You're lucky Alice came in to save your ass, Braiden! Because if I didn't know any better, I'd say you were legitimately trying to kill our Lila...

      I LOVE the idea of Alex coming in to save Lila (I know you're getting Mikita vibes here, where he always comes in to save the day <3).

      600 page novel featuring a steamy Lila/Alex scene, attempted murder on Lila and a shirtless Alex furiously speeding in atop his motorbike (real heroes don't need a horse!) to save her life. I LIKE.

      Delete
    5. OH GOD. YES.

      IMAGINE ALEX.

      WITH A BIG-ASS GUN LIKE MICHAEL'S.

      JUST COMING IN ON HIS MOTOR BIKE AND SHOOTING THE CRAP OUT OF EVERYONE, SWEEPING LILA OFF HER FEET AND THEN GOING HOME TO DO UNMENTIONABLE THINGS TO HER.





      That should be an entire series. With a whole book on the steamy scene.

      Delete
    6. Remember that episode where Michael exploded the wall of the room Nikita was trapped in and was waiting for her on his motorbike, looking all sexy and badass?

      THAT is what we need from Alex. With the additional shooting part and doing 'unmentionable things to her.' :D

      Damn. I'm going to cry if we don't get a motorbike rescue/shoot-the-crap-out-of-ever-one scene.

      Delete
    7. OMG YES. <3 <3 <3 THAT WAS SO FREAKING HOT. It was like...you have no way out..and she's like, um, YEAH I do! Hi hot boyfriend on hot motorbike with a hot gun.

      Or that time that they were on the road with a bunch of cars...I think Owen was there? And Michael just comes out of nowhere and shoots the fuck out of everyone. CHYEAH. God Mikita is such a hot ship! *fans self*

      YES. WE NEED ONE. When all help is lost....OH HI SEXY ALEX WITH HOT GUNS AND BIKE. <3

      Delete
  5. OH MY GOD, I THINK I LOVE YOU! Hahahaha, this is just hilarious!

    How about.. Loving Lila? It could mean the same thing, but is slightly nicer sounding, as it wouldn't be just a one nighter between them because Alex is just amazing. But yet it could mean it's a little more reltionship-y too. Without losing all the awesome action and stuff.

    Otherwise.. Hunting Lila, Losing Lila... Finding Lila? Maybe she finds herself a bit more and "becomes" this eve more powerful awesome super-powered chick? Or she's literally found by bad people. Or.. Ok, I can't think of any others that fit the Hunting/Losing theme. I'll stop :)

    1. I think I should have gotten you to write my post, you make it sound MUCH more sensual haha. Loving Lila! <3

      I like the Finding Lila one! Not the being found by the bad people part though :P I like the idea of her really growing into her 'awesome super-powered' self and fully embracing her inner badass. I am so intrigued to see what the actual title will be!

      Delete
  6. Oh this sounds like fun. What about...
    Loving Lila--very PG way to describe what we hope they'll do, hehe
    Or...
    Taking Lila
    Having Lila

    But I definitely like yours Brods! XD

    1. Loving Lila seems like a much more romantic favourite! haha. But it would appear the clear vote is that Alex and Lila need to have some SERIOUS bedroom time in book 3!!

  7. HMMMMMMMMMMMMM. LOVE THIS POST! And your *cough* DIRTY *cough* mind there Brodie my dear. ;) ;)

    BUT Y'KNOW.
    I'M GOING TO TAKE A WHOLE NEW SPIN ON THIS.
    THE 3RD BOOK WILL BE A SPIN-OFF.
    AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON ALEX.

    So let's go...
    Bedding Alex
    Enjoying Alex
    Staring (at) Alex
    Touching Alex
    Rubbing Alex
    Feeling Alex
    Playing (with) Alex

  8. LOL Brodie! I wonder what will Sarah think if she saw this. XD

    Rachel's title - Loving Lila sounds more appropriate!

    From Hunting to Losing... I was thinking of Saving Lila. :D

    Replies
    1. LOL Sarah has seen this (go follow her on twitter!) and I'm going to believe it's inspired her to spend the next hour entertaining our fantasies by writing two chapters on Alex/Lila bedroom adventures :D

      Ohhh I like Saving Lila! Hunting, Losing, Saving. You might be onto something ;)

      Delete
    2. That's good! :D You know some of us are actually looking forward to the scene. *looks at Brodie's post again* XD

      Delete
    3. I don't really think Sarah has a choice anymore... there is going to be serious backlash if we do not get our sexy scene in book 3 :P But then, she may surprise us with it in Losing Lila! *faints*

      Delete
    4. I love surprises, especially if it involves Alex. *swoons again* Surprise us, Sarah! (Are we stressing her out?) :D

      Delete
  9. *blank stare* MY EXTREMELY SEXY ALEX POST IS GONE. WHERE IS IT? *rages*

    FHDSOFHDSAHUFSADOH.

    anyway.
    to sum it up.
    Brodie, you are BRILLIANT for coming up with this meme. And using this book to start us off. ;) ;) And...with that kind of suggestion? HEE HEE HEE HAW HAW HAW.

    Anyway. I'm just going to take this whole tangent on a mindfuck and suggest something awesome. A SPIN-OFF.
    THE NEXT 2 (THAT'S RIGHT!) BOOKS WILL FOCUS ON ALEX INSTEAD OF LILA.
    *rubs hands together*
    So let's go.........

    Touching Alex
    Rubbing Alex
    Staring (at) Alex
    Playing (with) Alex
    Enjoying Alex
    Eyefucking Alex
    Pleasing Alex
    Smelling Alex

    1. ALEX SPIN OFF! GENIUS, ALICE! GENIUS! Why did I not think of this earlier?!

      And why just TWO? You have 9 potential books there. I honestly think that could make a 9-book series. OR maybe they're all the chapter titles for the one book? I LOVE THIS BOOK ALREADY.

      ANND then, because the Alex chronicles were such a huge success, she'll have to do it with Jack too :D

      Delete
    2. Well, there's lots of Novella going on for other series. Maybe Sarah can do the same? For different characters? She already has one for Suki. <3 I'm just thinking! :D

      Delete
    3. OH YEAH! I'm SURE I saw her tweet not long ago that she was writing something from Alex's POV? A novella maybe? My memory is terrible. But anyway, I fully support this :D

      Delete
    4. OH OH OH AND WHEN SHE WRITES A NOVELLA FEATURING ALEX (or more like, nine of them or something)

      Can the cover be Alex's chest? We've had Lila's legs, Suki's face, SURELY the next option should be Alex's yummy chest!






      God I wouldn't let that book out of my sight.

      Delete
    5. hahahahahhahahaha THESE TITLES ARE AMAZING <3 My favourite would be "Eyefucking Alex" and it would be a biography of all of us...

    6. Oh God, ALICE! YOU DIRTY LITTLE BITCH.
      EYEFUCKING ALEX? (LOL that just remind me of a convo I had with a friend the other day!)
      TASTING ALEX?
      RUBBING ALEX?
      This is slowly turning into an EROTICA.
      Jesus, woman! TONE IT DOWN A LITTLE.

    7. LOL SHIT. NOW WE'RE SWEARING AT EACH OTHER? DUDE. YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU READ HUNTING LILA YOU SPENT THE WHOLE TIME EYEFUCKING ALEX. ;D DON'T DENY IT - IT'S TRUEEE!

  11. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!! Brodie, have I ever mentioned that you're my HERO? Seriously -- Bedding Lila, Screwing Lila, Deflowering Lila... Ohmysweetgoodness, I am SCANDALIZED. :') But strangely excited! Now I think I might have to bug Sarah Alderson into including that scene with Alex Wakeman -- or at least a scene with him withOUT a shirt on! Oh boy, and I thought that I could wait for Losing Lila but now my excitement is renewed and doubled!! :P

    I love love LOVE this idea, Brodie!!! I'm already giddy-excited about what crazy title you'll come up with next week!! x) Must you be so smart? <3

    P.S. Alice makes an Alex-fangirl's world go round. Just saying. :')

    2. Buahaha this post seems to have inspired the army of fangirls to rally for more Abs of Alex. SUCH a worthy cause and I really hope Sarah supports it in one of the books to come.

      Otherwise we'll all DIE.

      Bold claims, but we're activists and we're not going into this half-hearted!

      Also: I have a girlcrush on that Alice. Shhhh, don't let her know!

  12. BRODIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOL!!! Bedding Lila should totally be Book 3's title! :P

    We all seriously need more of that bed scene with Lila and Alex!

    Like Mimi, I am so excited with all the crazy titles you're going to come up with.

    I know how you're really dying to read Insurgent so here's my prediction for title #3:

    Detergent.

    1. LOL!! Celine you better run fast with your Detergent idea! *cracks into more laughter*

    2. Hahaha Detergent.... don't run away, I LOVE IT! OMG. I bet it has something to do with Amity. Erudite thinks it's the so good with it's super advanced serum, but while they're turning the Dauntless badasses into obedient robots, Amity and their peace-loving ways have been using much more safer and practical ways of defeating their enemies. DETERGENT.

      I can't wait to see how this unfolds. You're a genius, Celine.

    3. BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA! Using Detergent to defeat enemies? That is actually a good way of seeing it! Amity + Detergent = WIN!

    Anyways, I'm all for an Alex spin off and all for the cover of him with his shirt off *eyes glaze over*

    3. Especially if Alex is wearing a VERY tight pirate costume. Or a pirate costume that doesn't involve a shirt. <3 And a sexy eyepatch. UNF. (both eyes still working perfectly of course!)

      AND YAY FOR THE CONTINUATION OF THE ALEX SPIN-OFF IDEA. :D

  18. LOL I love this post SO MUCH! I think Bedding Lila is an excellent title.

    I thought I'd come and add some Britishness to the suggestions:

    Shagging Lila

    Nice and obvious I think. We wouldn't want an ambiguous title now.

    Or, for a more international feel:

    Tapping Lila.

  19. I may have spilt my drink all over my keyboard laughing at this post. Thanks for that, Brodie. ;)

  23. LOL!! Oh my god. xD You totally made my day, I can't stop laughing! Perfect title though. ;) I definitely like the sound of it, and while I have yet to pick it up (I know, how can I not have YET??), I definitely hope we'll end up there in the end. *nods*
