Hey Pals!! Today I am doing the… Well, you read the title, of course, so I am not gonna repeat, coz I am lazy. Just kidding!! This is the “I Should Have Read That Book” tag. Obviously, I’m doing it even though I wasn’t tagged, but that’s because it’s a fun tag and it has been in my drafts since last year and I’m too busy to write new posts right now what with boards going on 🤧. So, let’s do this!!
1: A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
One of my blogger friends, Ashmita, has been begging me to read The Inheritance Games, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, since ages! And I can’t say that I’m not tempted, I’m just not in the mood to read the ebook and the paperback…well, I won’t be able to buy the paperback because, ahem, boards 🙂. Yes, I do live a happy life, don’t worry *sniffles*.
cAn i gEt a tIsSuE?!
2: A book that’s been on your TBR forever and you still haven’t read the hell out of it
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. This is just such a terrifyingly long book that it intimidates me. It is really popular but it was written by an author who lived so long ago that I am reluctant to pick it up. Yeah, judging books, I know! I can’t help it though. I do think it would be a fantastic read though if I read it eventually.
3: A book in a series you started but haven’t finished
Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken. This is the sequel to The Darkest Minds. Once again, I haven’t read it because of the paperback-unavailability thing. I am excited for it because the first book was very good!
4: A classic you have always liked the sound of but never really started
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I have no idea what this book is about but its title, cover, and popularity interest me. So one day, I will read it and know why it’s so freaking loved.
5: A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
You better not unfollow 🙂🔪. Yeah, I haven’t read The Fault in our Stars by John Green. I haven’t read any of his books except for Paper Towns and one other that I dnfed. And I see this book everywhere. Everybody loves it so much it does indeed feel like I am the only one who has not read it yet.
6: A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot. I absolutely lurve the movies even though the second one wasn’t based on any book. I still don’t know why I haven’t read these books. Hope to get to them soon.
7: A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
I am not on Instagram~
