BOOKS I WANT TO READ BUT DON’T WANT TO READ BOOK TAG

I’m so excited to do this tag today! I had been eyeing it since I saw it on Jami’s Book Shelves blog, and then when Laura @ The Book Corps tagged BPR, I was readyyyyyy. This pretty much is the best description of my life with my bookshelf, so I clearly need to do it. Please make sure to check out both of their blogs because they both have just amazing content and Sha and I are currently in so deep with Laura’s amazing Buzzfeed Unsolved readathon.

A BOOK THAT YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO READ BECAUSE EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT IT

17675462

Um, like everything? Despite my official self diagnosis of being a book hipster, I really do find myself gravitating toward books that everyone is screeching about since I’m like ruin everything in my life idk? One of the books is The Raven Cycle. Everyone seems to LOVE LOVE LOVE it and like I’m still confused by the summary? I’ll probably read it, though.

A BOOK THAT’S REALLY LONG

34433755

Girls of Paper and Fire! It’s not that long, but every time I look at it, I’m like oh no. That is totally too much for this lady rn. It just looks so good.

A BOOK YOU’VE OWNED/HAD ON YOUR TBR FOR TOO LONG

27969081

Labyrinth Lost! It’s not my fault. I think. For the longest time, I didn’t have it on my physical TBR, but then it just screamed Halloween read, but then I missed it again…I have no excuse but this all ends in April. Thank gosh since it seems so good.

A BOOK THAT IS ‘REQUIRED’ READING
(EG, SCHOOL TEXT, REALLY POPULAR CLASSIC – SOMETHING YOU FEEL OBLIGATED TO READ!)

19063

The Book Thief. I have heard so so many good things, and I’ve seen it sometimes being referred to as required reading. It just looks so big and like all emotions will be hitting me hard.

A BOOK THAT INTIMIDATES YOU

5296

I have a lot of Oscar Wilde books on my TBR, and despite my love for The Importance of Being Earnest, I’m so intimidated to go back since a) classics and b) it’s going to take me a while to read since I have to go slowwwwww.

A BOOK THAT YOU THINK MIGHT BE SLOW

37880094

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy! It’s 450 pages, and the first book was slower in parts, and like this doesn’t have as strong of a plot from the summary (like, as linear as it would be).

A BOOK YOU NEED TO BE IN THE RIGHT MOOD FOR

35274032

Ruse by Cindy Pon! This series is the easier sci-fi dystopia book I’ve ever read, but I still totally need to be in the mood to read this type of book since wow I’m usually fail YET AGAIN.

A BOOK YOU’RE UNSURE IF YOU WILL LIKE

33158561

Wild Beauty! The premise seems intriguing and that coverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Omigosh, I LOVE IT. However, it’s magical realism, and like I have a hard time fully understanding the premise, so I’m a bit scared this will go badly.

Tag…you’re it!

I’ll be doing another tag later in the week, so I’ll save official tags for that one. I tag anyone that has any of these books on their TBR!

What do you think? What are some books that are on your TBR that you want to read but don’t at the same time? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. The Raven Cycle is one of my favourites, but I’m still confused by the last book. 😂
    The Book Thief is REALLY good but also very heartbreaking, I cried so much after I finished it.
    This was such a fun tag, loved reading it. ❤️

  2. This tag seems like so much fun! And truly, The Book Theif is a beautiful book but at times slow. It’s really good and the emotions that come with it but still, it’s not perfect- Anyways! Great tag that I kind of want to do now lol

    1. Yes! It was definitely super fun, and I totally recommend doing it. 🙂 And okay good to know about it being slow! I figured that it might be a bit since it was such a large book. But I’m glad to know that it’s beautiful and emotional overall!! 🙂

  3. I’m in the minority (so you probably shouldn’t listen to me lol), but I really didn’t enjoy the Raven Boys. The plot was weird and confusing and the characters were sooo bland.

    Girls of Paper and Fire, on the other hand, is definitely worth reading! I agree that the size is intimidating, but it’s a really gripping book that you’re likely to get through fast because it’s just THAT good.

    Anyways, great post, it was fun to read!

    1. Honestly, I was a bit afraid of that – that it was going to be weird and confusing and bland. With that confirmation, I think I might be skipping.

      And oooooh I’m super super excited for it now. I’m totally going to have to move it up on my TBR and not be so intimidated by it now, lol.

      And thank you!! 😀

  4. I really want to read Priory of the Orange Tree, but have you sEEN THE SIZE OF THAT BOOK??? It lowkey stresses me out. And I don’t know if it’s because I’m weak, but that book is so big it’s hard to lift. A tap on the head with that book could put someone down for good 😂

    1. OMG YESSSSsss. it’s so so large that I can’t imagine trying to tackle that. Just knowing you have all of those pages to readddddd. And omg yes that will definitely knock you out for sure. XD And I can’t imagine that it would be comfortable to try to read it.
