I can’t even count the times I’ve said I should’ve read this book by now or wonder why I didn’t read a book sooner than I did. So when I saw the I Should Have Read That Book Tag, I knew it was one I needed to do. This tag was created by Beth @ Books Nest. I wasn’t tagged, but saw this on Lorraine’s blog, Geeky Galaxy. Make sure to check them out. Let’s take a look at this tag!

A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I could actually write a book about all of the recommendations I get from friends, haha. A book I keep getting told to read is The Iron Flower. I loved The Black Witch and I’m shocked I haven’t continued this series yet. The third book is coming out soon, so I really need to get going!
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
Once again, I could choose so many books for this one. King of Scars is a book that’s been on my shelf since release day. It’s not the oldest book on my shelf that hasn’t been read, but one I should’ve read already, haha. I remember reading the Grisha trilogy to prepare for this and it just kind of slipped off my TBR.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
I know a lot of people who will be shocked when I say this, but I still haven’t finished Godsgrave (and I’m over halfway done). It’s not that I’m not enjoying it, but I’ve been distracted by other books. Godsgrave is also a heavier book, so I really need to concentrate and read it. My goal is to finish this and Darkdawn in 2020!
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
If I’m honest, I haven’t read any classics. Some of them definitely sound interesting, but maybe I’m kind of intimidated by them. One I am curious about is Pride and Prejudice. Maybe I’ll eventually pick up a classic!
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Kingdom of Ash is a popular book that I started, but just haven’t finished. I was so excited for this book. Isabelle and I even went to the bookstore on release day! It’s not that I wasn’t enjoying it, but I don’t want the series to end. My goal is to also pick up this one in 2002. I will finish the series.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
It doesn’t happen often that I watch something before reading the book, so I’m going to flip this one. What’s a book that I’ve read, but haven’t seen the adaptation yet? You is a TV show on Netflix based on the books You and Hidden Bodies. I loved the books. A lot of people love the show, so I really need to sit down and watch it!
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
Call Down the Hawk was a book I saw on Instagram everywhere when it first released! I loved The Raven Boys, so I did buy this book. I just haven’t read it yet (that’s really the story of my life, haha). Part of me kind of wants to wait until we’re closer to the sequel being released though. We’ll see!
So that’s it for this tag today! If you loved the tag, feel free to do this one yourself. Let me know though, because I’d love to see your answers! What is a popular book it seems everyone has read but you?
