I’m always on the lookout for a fun book tag and I came across this one! Beth from the Booksnest created this ‘I Should Have Read That Book’ tag and I found it at Emma’s blog the terror of knowing. There are 7 prompts and I really had to think for a couple of them, so let’s take a look!
A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
While Candyce does tell me to read a lot of books, I don’t feel like she keeps pushing me to read a certain book over and over again haha. She just keeps hitting me with new ones haha. If I had to pick one book, I’d go with A Curse So Dark and Lonely. Both Candyce and Melissa really liked it and I have been planning on reading it for abut a year and a half now!
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
For almost 5 years I’ve had a classic adult fantasy on my TBR and I still haven’t read it yet. I’m talking about Lud-in-the-Mist. This book looks so good and I’m sure I will love it a lot. Hopefully I will pick it up soon because I can’t believe I’ve owned this book for almost 5 years now.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
I started reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series almost three years ago and I only need to read the finale. Candyce and I started reading the last book in the series with another friend of ours and while she finished it in no time at all, we both miserably failed haha. I really liked the first two books and I should just go ahead and read that last book!
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
I don’t really read classics, I tried to make it a reading goal a couple of years ago but it just doesn’t work for me. There are a couple of classics that do sound like I might enjoy them though, and one of them is The Odyssey. I also love some of the editions these classics come in and I would love to collect them just because they are beautiful hahaha.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Everyone seems to have read the complete Caraval series. And I still have only read the first book haha. I was a bit disappointed after all the hype so I haven’t really felt the urge to read the next two books. Even though everyone says the series get better. And I own all the books because the covers are gorgeous haha.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
I usually try to read the book first but sometimes I don’t even know something is inspired by a book. One of my favorite movies is Shutter Island, I loved it so much and when I found out it was based on a book I knew I had to read it. The author of the book has tons of books out and I think I would really enjoy quite a lot of them.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
There are so many books I see on Instagram haha. One I’ve seen a lot recently was This Is How You Lose The Time War since Illumicrate was doing a special edition. I already own a copy and I can’t wait to finally read it <3
And that was the I Should Have Read That Book tag! I had a lot of fun with these prompts and want to read allll of the books right away haha. Which one should I pick up first? Let me know in the comments! Also did you notice all of the blue covers haha.
