I love a good tag! I first saw this one on One Book More’s blog! Check out their post here!
Also, please feel free to tag me in any and all tags! I think they are a lot of fun and I want to start doing them much more! So tag away!
Anyway, here’s the ‘I Should Have Read That’ book tag!
A Book That a Certain Friend is Always Telling You to Read
Record of a Spaceborn Few – Becky Chambers
Shut up, Bernie. I’ll get to it soon, I promise 😂 In all seriousness, I really enjoyed To Be Taught, If Fortunate by the same author, so I really need to get round to reading these amazing sci-fi novels.
Record of a Spaceborn Few is the third in a series. I haven’t read the series yet, but I will.
A Book That’s Been on Your TBR Forever and Yet You Still Haven’t Read It
Darker Shade of Magic – V. E. Schwab
I’ve met V. E. Schwab several times, and I’ve even had my copy of this book signed by her…but to my shame, I haven’t read it yet. In fact, I own most of her books and still haven’t read them. I have read her middle-grade books, and Addie LaRue and liked them okay enough.
I just need to get my shit together and read this.
A Book in a Series You’ve Started, But Haven’t Gotten Around to Finishing
The Renegades series – Marissa Meyer
There is legitimately no reason why I haven’t finished this series. I can’t tell you why. I enjoyed the first two books pretty well, I made sure I got the matching hardbacks, I got into the characters and story…yet I still haven’t picked the final book in this series up.
I’m sure I’ll get to it, and luckily I think i’ll manage to remember what happened for the most part.
A Classic You’ve Always Liked the Sound of, But Have Never Actually Read
Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy
I really, REALLY wanna get round to reading this one. I’ve got no reason for not reading it – I’ve read SO many of Tolstoy’s books and adored them!
I’m also extremely tempted to watch the film adaptation with Keira Knightley and Jude Law, but i’ve resisted temptation so far.
A Popular Book That it Seems Everyone But You Has Read
Any and all Sarah J Maas books
I’ve been through this so many time’s so I’m not going to repeat myself again. But the short answer is: I have absolutely ZERO interest in her books.
She also rubbed me the wrong way at a book event of hers I went to and I personally found her to be really unprofessional. So yeah, not interest here.
A Book That Inspired a Film/TV Adaptation That You Really Love, But Just Haven’t Picked Up Yet
Jaws – Peter Benchley
I’m well aware that the author has denounced this book for all the damage it caused to sharks and their public perception. But, regardless of being a HUGE, HUUUUUGE shark and ocean advocate, I still enjoy the film and I really want to read the book.
I also have a particularly old edition and I adore it!
A Book You See All Over Instagram But Haven’t Picked Up Yet
The Poppy War – R.F. Kuang
I’m not sure if this is one I’ll pick up, to be totally honest. I might, I’m tempted – but I also might not. I’ve no doubt that it’s a really good book/series – after all, it IS all over instagram and there’s been special editions etc etc.
But, I’m not sure. I think it might be a ‘one that got away’ situation.
And that’s it for this tag!
