A Book That a Certain Friend is Always Telling You to Read 


I had trouble coming up with an answer for this one, so I’m going to go with volumes two and three of The Outlaws of the MarshI’ve already mentioned on my blog that I read volume one at the request of my boyfriend, who read it in college and loved it. It’s an absolutely massive set of books, and when I finished volume one I picked up volume two to put on my TBR list, and there it has set for about two months. I just can’t bring myself to open it, despite my boyfriend repeatedly telling me that volume two is even better than volume one.

A Book That’s Been on Your TBR Forever and Yet You Still Haven’t Picked it Up


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak seems to be a widely beloved book, and it’s been on my TBR forever, but for some reason, I just haven’t read it yet. I still want to, and I have a strong suspicion that I’m going to adore it. I’m not sure what’s kept me from reading it.

A Book in a Series You’ve Started, But Haven’t Gotten Round to Finishing Yet

I couldn’t think of an answer to this one! Usually, when I love a series I end up essentially marathoning all the books that are currently out. The series I’m currently working my way through is Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive series.

A Classic You’ve Always Liked the Sound of, But Never Actually Read


This was easy to answer – Jane Austen’s Pride and PrejudiceI’ve wanted to read this book for years, but for some reason, it’s always on the backburner for me. I’m finally going to read it in 2019 though, mainly because I received Ibi Zoboi’s Pride in an Owlcrate and want to read it after the original that it’s inspired by.

A Popular Book That It Seems Everyone But You Has Read


I feel like everyone involved in the book community is obsessed with the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I’m sure I’ll probably read it eventually, but for the time being, I’m 99% sure I’m the only person who hasn’t started this series yet.

A Book That Inspired a Film/TV Adaptation That You Really Love, But You Just Haven’t Read It Yet


Despite knowing that I would probably love it, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin has been on my TBR since I initially signed up for Goodreads. I love the television show so much, and I’ve been wanting to get started on the books for years. It just never seems like an appropriate time to start them. Perhaps I’ll start reading the series this year. Maybe.

A Book You See All Over Instagram But Haven’t Picked Up Yet


Lately, it’s been Roshani Chokshi’s The Gilded Wolves. I received this book in January’s Owlcrate, so I’m definitely going to read it very, very soon, but this cover has been so prevalent on Instagram recently.

There you have it! I’m still relatively new to the book blogger community, so I’m not going to tag individual people, but if you would like to participate in this tag, go for it! Just read the rules up top.

  1. The Way of Kings seems interesting so I’ve added to my list. Thanks! Also after watching the incredible work of art that is Game of Thrones, I read the first two novels in George R. R. Martin’s series. Unfortunately his writing felt flat and stilted to me, coming nowhere close to the excitement of the TV series. Normally it’s the other way around so I was surprised and disappointed. I hope you eventually get to read it and enjoy it more than me though!

    1. I’ve heard a lot of people say that about his writing, so that’s probably one of the reasons I’m weary of actually picking it up.

      I hope you enjoy The Way of Kings! It’s one of the best books I’ve read in ages.
