A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
Eve of Man. One of my friends at work has just read this with his book club and has been asking me constantly if I have read it because I’ve had it on my TBR pile for a couple of months now. It has also been recommended to me by my sister in law who read it when it was released. It does seem like my sort of book. I have read Giovanna’s work before but I got bored about 30% in and had a rare DNF of her book and haven’t attempted her other work. Tom Fletcher is more of a children’s author and a singer to me which is why I think it’s taken me so long to do. However, to appease Joe I have decided that this will be my next read.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
I feel like a terrible person for not reading this when so many people have expressed their love for this series. I can’t even tell you how long I have had it on my shelves. I’ll probably have to move this down to a lower shelf as it’s not one that is in my eye line. Either that or start a TBR jar. Make it all brightly coloured and tempting and that will also sort out my what should I read next conundrum.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
I’d like to first point out that I have started this book. There are a couple of reasons why I haven’t yet finished this series.
1. I like many others aren’t a big fan of Chaol, I personally find him boring. I do feel sorry for what happened to him but I’m still not convinced that a 660 page book about him is something I’m going to enjoy. I will however push through it.
2. I’m still not ready for this series to end. I only started reading this series last year and I know how difficult it must have been between the book releases but I’m honestly not ready to see it all end after the investments I have made in the characters.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
When I was in school, we had to read two of three books, everyone had to read and write an essay on Of Mice and Men we didn’t get a choice but it was up to our teachers to choose the other one. My English teacher chose Romeo and Juliet and thanks to him 16 years later I can still recite the prologue) and the other teachers chose to do To Kill a Mockingbird. When school finished I had to be a provider for my family while my dad was ill so this didn’t even make it on my list of things to read as I was also at college but doing this post has brought it to the forefront of my mind so I will get this read soon.
I remember my friends in school telling me how interesting it was so I don’t know why I didn’t think of reading this sooner.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Other than the above books,
- Kingdom of Ash
- War Storm
- The rest of the Raven Cycle
- Children of Blood and Bone
- One of us is Lying
- Two can keep secret
- Girls of Paper and Fire
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
I love this TV show and I can’t wait for the final season to start.
So not long to go now. I bought the entire series of books when I got made redundant from work and I still have the cellophane on them so that they don’t get damaged. I will luckily get to read them once the TV show has finished as there are always, always parts that are missing.
It is not the norm for me to watch a TV show or film before reading the books but when it comes to Game of Thrones, there is an exception to this rule.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
This can only be The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I’ve seen this everywhere however I didn’t realise how big it was. In the pictures, it looks deceiving and not the 848 pages that it is.
I do have to admit that this has intrigued me and the synopsis looks amazing, I’m now just wondering when I’m going to read it as I bought this with 5 other books but hopefully it’s soon (as in the next couple of months because everyone is reviewing it at the moment) and I don’t get intimidated by the sheer size of it.
That’s it for this tag! If you enjoyed it, and would like to do this tag, then feel free to take part.
