This is a tag that was absolutely made for me because there are simply tonnes of books I feel like I should have ticked off by now. Some of them already live on my bookshelf but are still patiently waiting for me to come and pick them up.
This tag was created by Beth from Book’s Nest – one of my favourite UK book bloggers, and definitely one of the most supportive bloggers there is.
A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
My boyfriend has been telling me for the entiretly of our relationship that I need to read Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami. It’s one of his favourite books, so I do believe I need to read it soon. But, I am really worried about what could happen if I don’t enjoy it.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
This could be absolutely any book on my TBR. I keep on buying books and just using them as decoration, it might as well be. However, Beartown by Friedrick Backman is an absolute must read for me before the end of the year.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
I lost the second book of the Divergent series, Insurgent, on a bus journey to my parents in Ireland. I’ve never picked up the book since, and I’ve never finished the series out. Though, I know what the ending is, and I’m not even too sure I want to finish it.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
I love dystopian, so I imagine I would really love 1984. I’ve still never read it, though I have got a copy and I have tried to read some of the audiobook.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Right now, it seems as if everyone has read Red, White and Royal Blue apart from me. Everyone on my Twitter timeline anyway.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
I’m going to flip this a little and say a book I love but haven’t seen the adaptation yet. I loved Crazy Rich Asians when I read it earlier this year, but I still haven’t seen the film.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
I’m very easily persuaded when it comes to books. When I saw Dawn O’Porter’s new book, So Lucky, on Instagram I instantly added it to my TBR. I still haven’t actually read it, though.
