Hi everyone! Another book tag today and I’m really excited about it because I just love talking about my book anxiety *inserts extreme sarcasm here*… but no seriously, I’m not ashamed of sharing my list of books I’m probably never going to read… but I want to! Let’s just get right into the tag.
A Book You Feel You Need To Read Because Everyone Talks About It
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli
Honestly, the whole series applies to this question but mainly this first book. I bought this book about 2 years ago and I read 5 pages and had to ask myself the question: “Do I even really want to read this, or am I reading it just because everyone else has?” I then decided that I only really picked it up because of the hype and wasn’t actually interested in it.
A Book That’s Really Long
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) – J.K. Rowling
UGH! I want to continue on with the series so bad but, 870 pages?! I just find it absolutely ridiculous. Just the audiobook alone is 27 hours. My god! I really want to continue on, but should I even bother? I don’t know. I am still deciding on whether I’ll take the plunge and try and finish this series.
A Book You’ve Owned/Had on Your TBR For Too Long
Love & Luck (Love & Gelato #2) – Jenna Evans Welch
I really want to read this book, but I don’t want it to ruin the first book’s experience I had. I have high hopes for this series, even though I don’t see it get too much hype. I DO want to read this, I swear… it’s just taking so much strength for me to take the plunge.
A Book That Is ‘Required’ Reading
Lord of The Flies – William Golding
Yes, technically I have in fact read this. Honestly, while read this in high school, I kind of just skimmed the book and didn’t actually really pay attention when reading it. I would love to read it again, but I have been definitely putting it off. Hopefully I can get to it this week at some point.
A Book That Intimidates You
Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi
This book seriously intimidates the hell out of me. It’s a giant and I know there a lot of complex parts about it. I bought it so I could push myself towards reading it, but I’m still in that stage where I don’t really know if I want to read it just yet.
A Book That You Think Might Be Slow
The Shadow and Bone Trilogy – Leigh Bardugo
I’m not that big into fantasy that much anyways, so a book like this would be slow for me. I know there’s a lot of hype, a lot of people have read it… but I feel like for me it will take me a super long time to get through one of these books, let a lone a whole series.
A Book You Need To Be In The Right Mood For
Turtles All The Way Down – John Green
This is a book you definitely have to be in the right mood/mind-set for. Pretty much any hard-hitting contemporary you have to be in the mood for, or at least in my opinion. A book like this where it deals with such heavy topics, you have to be in the right mood to be able to deal with all of that.
A Book You’re Unsure If You Will Like
Radio Silence – Alice Oseman
I really want to read this book, and honestly all I have heard is amazing, good things. I’m nervous, but I do want to try this. Will I ever get to it though? Who knows.
I am tagging anyone who wants to go ahead and try this to go ahead and give it a shot! Tag me in your posts so I can see what some of your answers were as well!
