A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I really don’t read much that people tell me to read and I also don’t get people telling me to read much which may be related? Who knows! (People should definitely give me suggestions so I can ignore them more!) But a family member has suggested History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund. Which does sound good.
A book that’s been on your tbr forever and yet you still haven’t picked up
2 books did you say? Okay. So 2 books that according to goodreads are the oldest adds to my tbr and I still really want to read and am planning on reading….soon. Are Warchild by Karen Lowachee and Pantomime by Laura Lam. Both have been on my tbr since 2013. Eeek. But I did recently go through my tbr and make a most want to read backlist of 50 books and both made it on so hopefully I actually will read them this year!
A book in a series you’ve started but haven’t got around to finishing
So many? I am really bad at getting around to finishing series but two I really want to finish are Shades of Magic by VE Schwab. I’ve read the first two. I need to read the final one. And The Great Library by Rachel Caine. Again, I’ve read the first two and need to read the next ones. Both of those are series I finally got around to reading book 2 of recently and they were so good!
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of but never actually read
True story, I actually bought 1984 planning to read it 6 years ago but my brother asked if he could borrow it, brought it on his gap year with him, leant it around and by the time he brought it back to me it was about twice the size with water damaged pages. So I didn’t read it. That isn’t my fault.
A popular book it seems everyone but you has read
What popular books have I read might be a better question. I’m always so behind I feel like the hype train doesn’t stop at my station. I see it. I hear it but……
Okay. Maybe the most popular ones would be The Mortal Instruments by Cassie Clare – I’ve read The Dark Artifices series but just have no interest reading the original series. And Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. I mean I actually really enjoyed book 2 & 3 of ACOTAR but I don’t see me ever reading this one. It just doesn’t jump at me and there are so many books that do.
A book that inspiried a TV /film adaptation but you haven’t read yet
Pretty much any classic would fall under this question. I don’t get on with the writing style in classics but they are good stories that I enjoy watching. But as far as books I’m planning on reading, I don’t tend to watch adaptations until I’ve read them. Maybe the only book I would go back and read is Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, The BBC radio play of that was AMAZING!!
A book you see all over instagram/twitter but haven’t picked up yet
There are a lot of books that just aren’t my thing on Twitter (I’m not on instagram). But maybe the one that was most popular for a while that I can remember was To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. It sounds so romantic and embarrassing and not for me! As far as books on Twitter I actually plan to pick up maybe Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant (I’m super excited to read this….at some point). Or Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon is everywhere now too.
So that is just a handful of all the books I really should have read! What about you? I’d love to know your answers too, either for you to do the full tag or just let me know in the comments!
Tagging a bunch of newer followers in this alongside some faves. I’d love to get to know your tastes more and find out which books you’ve been putting off!
