Howdy-doodle people 😊🤠
Today I come to you with a headache but also a book tag that I have been meaning to do for months now. I was tagged by the amazing Meghan @ Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews to do the Books I Want to Read but Don’t Want to Read tag … all the way back in January.
Time is a social construct. How the hell is it almost July?? Anyways, thank you so much for tagging me Meghan, sorry it took me so long.
Before that though, I just want to say a massive thank you for 400 followers 🖤🖤🖤
- Link back to the original tag (this post, and Jami!)
- Complete the questions with books you want to have read but don’t want to read
- Tag some people at the end to do the tag next
A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it.
I have two answers for this question. One is a book that I say every single time for a question like this, another is a more recent release. We’ll start with the recent release just to ✨spice✨ things up a lil.
I have seen nothing but high praise and love for The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J Klune and, especially because I loved Klune’s YA novel, I need to get my hands on it and see what it’s all about. I have a vague idea of the synopsis: magical orphans or something like that.
The only reason I haven’t read this book yet is because I can’t find an affordable copy. Every format of this book is out of my price-range 😂 One day I’ll read it though.
And then the second book is A Court of Thorns and Roses. This book series is still the talk of the town and I’ve owned this first book since it’s release back when I was getting into reading but. Still haven’t read it, obviously, and at this point I don’t know if I want to. I don’t know if I have the energy to make it through this one anymore.
A book that’s really long.
Two questions in and we’re 2 for 2 with Sarah J. Maas books. I haven’t read it yet but surely Empire of Storms doesn’t need to be nearly 700 pages long. This is why I have so many unfinished series: the first few books are a nice 300-350 pages long but then they just get absurdly long and I just can’t.
A book you’ve owned / had on your TBR for too long.
I have a whole lot of books that fit this criteria but I’m going with the book that I swear to God I’m going to read this summer. Like a Love Story by Abdi Azemian.
If I took a shot for every time I’d said I was going to read this book, I’d probably be in the hospital getting my stomach pumped. It’s been years. I can’t use the excuse of “siking myself up for the emotions” anymore. I will read it this year, infact I will read it this June for Pride month!
A book that intimidates you.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It’s big and beasty and all historical. That scares me.
A book that you think might be slow.
Going off my experience reading The Raven Boys, I do think that All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater is going to drag. I didn’t mind it with TRC because the characters are what make me love that series so much, but I don’t know if the characters in this novel are gonna be able to keep me as entertained.
A book you need to be in the right mood for.
One that comes to mind is My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell.
This deals with some pretty heavy topics. It’s definitely not a fun contemporary or binge worthy mystery so I’m definitely going to need to be in the right mood and headspace for this one.
There’s a chance my mum might end up reading this before I do because I’ve added this to the stack of books I’m basically forcing her to read.
A book you’re unsure if you will like.
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novak has gone from being one of my most anticipated books of 2020 to being a book that I’m scared I’m going to hate.
I’ve seen not the best reviews for this one. I’m nervous. I’ll still try and read this this summer. If it’s bad at least I can write a review and get some content out of it.
Yayyyy. I finally did it. I’m lowkey proud of myself for finishing this tag that I swear I’ve started or at least thought about doing for months now. I’m so bad with tags sometimes I swear.
Once again thanks so much to Meghan and thank you for 400 followers 🖤🖤🖤
