Back again with another tag post! Today’s is one that I actually struggled to put together – I’m one for telling myself over and over that I’ll definitely get to reading a book when, if I’m honest, I know that I won’t.
I was tagged to do this by the fabulous Angela from Hiding Behind Books. Now, if you don’t know Angela, whERE HAVE YOU BEEN? She’s that hilarious unicorn that floats about the Twitterverse making everyone’s day, reminding us to actually read something and is an all around wonderful lady! If you’re not following her already, go – GO NOW! I’ll wait x
🌸 A REALLY HYPED BOOK THAT YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN READING:
Probably Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve seen this book everywhere and it’s always a consistent seller from our YA section at work but every time I try to pick it up there’s part of me that just isn’t into it. Bardugo is a popular YA author and one I feel like I should read but I don’t think this will be the book I start with.
🌸 A SERIES THAT YOU WON’T START/WILL NOT FINISH:
It’s rare for me to DNF a book but I couldn’t help it with the House of Night series by P.C and Kristin Cast. I made it two books in and, although I know it was pretty popular (and maybe still is idk), I just couldn’t get over the main character changing so dramatically overnight. Just not for me.
🌸 A CLASSIC THAT YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN READING:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. I really loved the TV adaption of this book and I do find the period of history that it’s set in to be interesting but this book is huge and I just don’t think I’ll ever have the wear-with-all of the get through it!
🌸 A GENRE THAT YOU’VE NEVER/WILL NEVER READ:
Hmm, probably Science-Fiction. I’m happy to read Fantasy but alien planets and the apocalypse don’t really call to me. But who knows, maybe there’s something out there that will change my mind!
🌸 A BOOK ON YOUR SHELVES THAT YOU’LL NEVER READ:
It has to be Tangerine by Christine Mangan. I bought this book a few months ago at it was a Waterstones BOTM and I really wanted to give it a go. It’s not my usual kind of book – it’s a bit of a thriller but I prefer something darker.
And there we have it! There’s me being honest with myself (finally lol) about which books I’ll probably never pick up. What do you think of my choices? Are yours the same? Have I mentioned a book that you loved? I’d love to know!
Officially tagging anyone who wants to give this a go! 📚
