Hey friends! It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a tag, so when Olivia from Purely Olivia tagged me for the I Should Read That Book Tag, I was immediately interested. Especially since it seems that I’m always saying “I should read that… and that… also this… and that…”
- Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post
- Link to the creator’s blog in your post
- Answer the questions below
- Tag 10 others to take part in the tag
- Enjoy the tag!
A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
The Foxhole Court // I’m going to use the same answer as Olivia so clearly Malanie from Malanie Loves Fiction is doing something right with pitching this book! From all her ravings (and those from other reviewers too), this book sounds phenomenal, and now I just have to… actually read it.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t read it
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns // See, I’ve wanted to read this book since before it was announced and I was reading the Julie C Dao’s other work, The Pumpkin Patch Princess, on Wattpad in 2016, before I had a blog or goodreads or whatever and my only social account was Wattpad. She even replied to tons of my comments on her story! So when I heard she was going to be published I knew I had to read her book! And… three years later here we are whoops
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing
Queen of Ruin // This book just came out last month, so there’s my excuse for not having read it yet. I definitely intend to, since I absolutely LOVED Grace and Fury! Also I requested an ARC for it and didn’t get it and that made me sad but I’ll still read it now that it’s out I promise
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but have never actually read
A Midsummer Night’s Dream // See, I just don’t like classics. But if I had to choose a classic to be mildly interested in, I have always loved mentions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream because hello, faeries? King Oberan and Queen Titania of the faeries? Of course I’m interested! Also if I’m being honest I’ll probably never read this, but I might read it on Schmoop. Maybe Sparknotes. To get the story without actually reading it, you see.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo // I just… yeah, I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in the universe who hasn’t read this. At first I didn’t want to read it because it’s not YA (and funny thing is that unlike most people who read YA, I’m actually a teenager) but I’ve seen so many amazing reviews gushing about it so… yeah…
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but just haven’t picked up yet
The Book Thief // I just… this whole post is making me feel very sheepish. I watched this movie and loved it and cried and checked out the book from the library (especially since Kelly from Another Book In The Wall keeps pitching it I want to read it more and more!) but then… time passed, I didn’t read it, I had to return it…
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
Spin The Dawn // Also stealing Olivia’s response here because
I’m tired and unoriginal although I don’t have bookstagram, I remember recently I kept seeing this everywhere! I think there were two simultaneous blog tours for it so it seemed like every other post in my reader was promoting it for a couple of weeks lol.
