A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
i thought about this question really hard and it took me a while too bc apparently I AM that friend that keeps repeatedly telling you to read certain books. so rude and i feel like ‘sorcery of thorns’ is a book almost EVERY reader has been constantly raving about since its release date and it’s one of those books that i TRULY want to read but am a lazy potato so i haven’t yet 😔
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t read it
honestly the kiss of deception has been on my mind since i joined goodreads and i’m really desperate to read it because there’s a plot twist that could potentially be spoiled for me at ANY TIME and marty i’m s c a r e d
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing
if anyone read ‘sleeping giants,’ they KNOW what kind of fresh hell this book puts you through. i REALLY REALLY REALLY should have finished this series and i WOULD have, if my library had the audiobook for the final book. but it doesn’t, so i sit and wait in pain and agony until they get it or i just break and read it myself
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but have never actually read
i never heard of rebecca until one of my favourite booktubers, merphy napier read it and loved it to no end. AND NOW I WANT TO READ IT BC IT SOUNDS SO CREEPY AND DARK AND LOOK AT THE COVER WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT???
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
i genuinely attempted to ‘the diviners’ LAST YEAR and after chapter one i was so tired i fell asleep and never opened my ebook copy again. the end. 😊
it’s just one of those massive books that are incredibly intimidating i dont know WHY i’ve read BIGGER BOOKS and LONGER SERIES yet here i stand, a coward
but i resolve to read it
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but just haven’t picked up yet
i dont watch much movies/tv shows unless we’re talking cooking shows, that’s different. and if i do its usually an adaptation of a book i loved and so, i have the opposite problem.
I’ve read all these books and desperately want to watch these movies
- a monster calls
- the hate u give
- crazy rich asians
- ready player one
- little woman
- gone girl
but my battery life span on movies is like uhhhh 3 a month, sooooo it’s going to be a long time till i get through these.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
i JUST joined instagram an actual proper instagram!!! i’m set to private right now but send me a request if you want to be friends and while all the bookstagram pictures i’ve seen are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, i’ve read MOST of the books featured.
i happen to read a liiiittle too much, if you couldn’t already tell so this question took some time to come by, but finally, i settled on priory of the orange tree. but DON’T WORRY, i already have plans to read it and i have my copy and it’s all tabbed up ready for me to read……i’m just trying to get my quaking, coward brain prepared
and now i have six more reasons to STOP watching youtube and actually read books.
and i don’t really know how to wrap this up so, i tag YOU and i hope to see your answers and also tell me, which series have you been meaning to finish but havent yet? I feel like this is a universal problem that everyone is just collectively ignoring. solidarity, amirite?
