A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I’ve had a few people tell me I need to read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. Full disclosure, I actually started reading this one about 10 years ago and put it down because I found it a bit on the dry side. Perhaps it’s worth giving it a go again?
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
Definitely 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Pretty sure I bought this one the week it was released, too. It’s a time travel story so I have no idea why I haven’t got around to it yet. I even re-bought it here in England after coming across it in a charity shop!
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t finished yet
Obsidio (#3 in The Illuminae Files) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I read the first two which were AMAZING and filled my sci-fi heart with joy. I will get to Obsidio soon, but I also don’t want to turn the last page on this wonderful and unique trilogy.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
I go on and on about how much I love time travel, but here’s a confession: I’ve never read The Time Machine by HG Wells. I really need to change that as it’s the book that spawned my favourite trope!
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. I will be honest, Faerie court stories don’t really do it for me. I may give it a shot one day, but I think it may be more due to the hype more than anything.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
The Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way. I recently watched this on Netflix for two reasons: 1) Gerard Way (I was a 16 in 2005 during the peak My Chemical Romance era, what did you expect??), and 2) it looked amazing (and it was amazing).
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
I see so many pretty variations of A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab. It’s such a gorgeous book and it looks fantastic! I’m going to try to read this one in the next couple months.
Feel free to take part in this book tag! Are any of these your faves?
