A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read

More than one friend had been telling me about how great Ready Player One was, but for some reason I haven’t read this yet. It sounds really fun and absolutely up my alley. I should definitely read this soon.

A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t read it

I’ve heard great things about Terry Pratchett in general but this book (and all his books) have been sitting my TBR forever. I think I’m a bit put off by the cover, to be honest.

A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing

I think I’m actually pretty good at finishing series. Usually when I start a series and I love the first book, I go ahead and binge-read the rest. There are a few series (not going to list here) where I’ve read the first book but didn’t really have an appetite for the rest. That being said, I haven’t finished rereading the Harry Potter series!

A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but have never actually read

Oh man. To Kill a Mockingbird and The Bell Jar have been on my TBR forever, and I know they are very good books, but I just haven’t had the chance to read them yet?? And yes I am pretty embarrassed that I haven’t yet read Pride and Prejudice which seems to be a favourite here in the book blogging community. I know who am I?? XD

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

I have Red Rising on my bookshelf and even tried to read it, but it’s a bit too heavy for me at the moment so I am letting it sit on my shelf for longer. The Cruel Prince and Daisy Jones are also books that I’ll have to read soon!

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but just haven’t picked up yet

Um so I’ve been telling everyone that I’m a Leigh Bardugo fan (and don’t get me wrong- I am!!) But I still haven’t read Shadow and Bone which is going to be a TV series soon.

A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet

I don’t go on Instagram all that often but I saw this book in my feed the other day…. Which reminded me that I haven’t yet read any of Sarah J. Maas‘s books!

  1. Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorites! 😀 I think you’ll really enjoy it when you pick it up. Shadow and Bone is…definitely not my favorite Leigh Bardugo book 😬 I would recommend skipping that series entirely, but I understand wanting to catch up for the Netflix show!

    Thanks so much for tagging me, and I hope you enjoy all of these books when you read them! ❤

    1. Haha I figured Margaret, since you’ve written a Pride & Prejudice retelling 🙂 It’s definitely on my TBR soon.

      Good to know about Shadow and Bone. I think I heard that it is slower paced than the Six of Crows series so that was why I haven’t gotten to it sooner haha. Maybe I’ll just watch the Netflix series 🙂


  2. This is a cute post! Thanks for tagging me Sophie!! 😀 The Bell Jar is a fantastic classic but not going to lie you have to be in the right state of mind to read it because it can be heavy at times. Also, I’m soooo behind on Sarah J Maas’ books! I have yet to read Throne of Glass and it has been on my TBR foreverrrrrrrrr (hopefully I get to it this year!) and don’t feel bad about Pride and Prejudice, I’ll tell you a secret. (I haven’t read it yet either…) That is ANOTHER one I have to get to this year!!

    1. Hi Jai Lynn!
      Yeah I don’t think I’m in the mood for a heavy read like The Bell Jar but maybe one day 🙂 Lol I’m so glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read Pride & Prejudice either, that makes me feel better! I’m hoping to read it soon as well, so hope that we will both enjoy this classic!

  3. Of all these, I read the Harry Potter book and Ready Player One. I really loved Ready Player One because I’m a child of the 80s and a gamer. All of the pop culture references were like reading candy, even the ones I didn’t quite recognize (you can bet I looked them up though).

  4. Thanks so much for tagging me! I also feel like this tag was made for me because I seem to be that person who hasn’t read any of the mega-popular books since the Divergent/Hunger Games era. You’ve got some great answers – I feel like Pride and Prejudice is a huge one but I haven’t read it either. Can’t wait to answer these myself!

  5. Pride and Prejudice is a favorite of mine, and the 2005 movie adaptation is so beautiful! I also have yet to read Daisy Jones, Red Rising and the Throne of Glass series. My goal is to at least read The Cruel Prince this month, and maybe start on some of the others in a few weeks.

    1. Hi Juli!
      Glad to hear that you liked Pride & Prejudice. To be honest I’ve only heard good things about this novel (and I hope to get to it soon!)
      Hope that you will enjoy The Cruel Prince! I am looking forward to reading it soon as well!

  6. Covers can definitely put me off reading a book which is so bad but it doesn’t make me as excited as a really pretty cover.
    I need to try out more classics and The Bell Jar is one I am interested it too.
    Whilst I do have The Cruel Prince to read which is a very hyped book. I have read Daisy Jones which I loved and think will make a great TV show when it comes out.
    I hope you enjoy Shadow and Bone, it wasn’t my favourite of Bardugo’s but still interesting and I love some of the side characters.
    Thank you so much for tagging me!!

    1. Definitely! There are books that I would’ve prioritized much more if they only had a better cover haha XD
      Glad to hear that you liked Daisy Jones! I am really excited to read this book soon!
      I’ve heard mixed things about Shadow and Bone so far, but maybe I will give it a try one day 🙂
      Thank you Sophie!

  7. Ahh I’m so glad you did this tag, Sophie, I loved your answers! And I have an excuse now to tell you to READ DAISY JONES as soon as you can! It really is such a fantastic read and I hope you’ll love it 😀

  8. Thanks for the tag (: I love this one. I have a lot of books that I really need to read sometime too. I’m terrible with classics and have read hardly any (although I am hoping to change that this year) and I also need to check out something by Terry Pratchett sometime as I’ve heard good things too. I think what put me off is the main thing that I’d heard of was an incredibly long series and there are so many books to catch up on 😅 I do 100% recommend The Cruel Prince though. And the Throne Of Glass series (which I still need to finish)!!

    1. Hi Charlotte! I haven’t been great at reading classics either. Usually I try to read several a year but haven’t read any this year yet haha. With everything going on I’ve been reaching for more light-hearted reads haha.
      I’ve been hearing endless good things about Terry Pratchett’s books! Agreed that it’s a long series and I never know where to start ahha…

      1. I think I’ve only ever read them for school 😂 although I am hoping to try and read a couple this year.
        I can’t say I blame you. I hope you’re okay ❤️
        Yeah that’s so true 😅 I’m sure we’ll both read something of his eventually though.

  9. Ooh I recently ordered The Cruel Prince, since I liked the sneak peek of this novel at the back of The Darkest Part of the Forest. I really enjoyed The Darkest Part of the Forest, so The Cruel Prince also looks right up my alley.

    Haha no worries. I also have many books that are widely read, but I still have not read. Such as 1984 and The Clockwork Orange.
