This tag has been going around for a while now, and to be honest I’m not really sure where it started. But I thought it would be fun, so here we go.
A book that you haven’t finished yet.
There are a couple of books I could use for this one. But I think I’ll go for the ones that I actually plan on finishing. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak. These are actually similar stories. I started both of these on audiobook. For Ember, my library loan expired, and for Book Theif, I decided I would rather read the physical copy instead. Trust me, these are both high on my list to finish.
A book you just haven’t had the time to read.
Can I just add a picture of my entire TBR shelf? No? Okay. If I have to pick one, I will go with Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. I am so excited to read this book. But I don’t want to rush through it, but I also don’t want to squeeze it in a few pages at a time before I go to bed when I am so exhausted from the day. I think this one will be taken on vacation with me this summer. Can’t wait!
A book you haven’t read because it’s a sequel.
For this one, I’m going with A Gathering of Shadows and A conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. It had been so long since I read A Darker Shade of Magic, that the excitement had waned a bit and honestly, I’d forgotten a lot of what happened in it. But I just happened to do a reread last week so be looking out for that review.
A book you haven’t read because it’s brand new.
I actually don’t own any recent releases that I haven’t read yet. So, I’m going to go with Every Day by David Levithan because I just got it a few days ago. Ever since the movie trailer came out, I have been so excited to read this book. Since I now own it, I will read it that much sooner. I also can’t wait to see the movie.
A book by an author you read previously but didn’t like.
I tend not to buy books by authors of books I didn’t like. But, I do have one that could be used for this category. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I tried reading her Shiver series several years ago but couldn’t even get halfway through the first book. But The Raven Boys is so loved by so many people that I definitely plan to pick it up.
A book on your TBR that you’re just not in the mood to read.
For this one, I’ll go with More Happy than Not by Adam Silvera. I really want to read this book, but from what I hear it’s extremely sad and I have to be in the right headspace to read a book like that. I’m not really sure I want to cry right now. Soon though.
A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t read because it’s enormous.
It by Stephen King. Need I say more?
A book on your TBR you bought because of the cover.
So, I buy a lot of books based on the cover. I could literally pick up a random book and more than likely it would work for this question. I actually just went on a fantasy buying binge and got the ones with the coolest covers. Not gonna lie. So, I guess I’ll just pick one. Age of Iron by Angus Watson, The Red Knight by Miles Cameron, and Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie. Okay, I’ll pick three.
The most intimidating book on your TBR.
For this, I would have chosen It by Stephen King, but I’ll choose a different one. Let’s go with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I really want to read this book because so many people rave about it, but it’s so long and daunting that I can’t bring myself to just dive in. It’s also very high fantasy and while I love high fantasy, something about this one makes me anxious. Not to mention, we may never actually end up getting the last book in the series and I don’t want to fall in love with something I can never finish.
Well, there you go. That’s the tag. If you would like to try this tag, then I TAG YOU!
