A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
My friend bought this for me about 2 years ago … the first and the second book … and I STILL haven’t read it. This is deliberate though — I have a feeling I’m going to REALLY like this series and get mad when I have to wait for the third book, which hasn’t been released yet … so I’m waiting.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
I’m pretty sure this was one of the first books I added to my TBR list when I first signed up for Goodreads … and EVERY YEAR, I say I’m going to read it in October … and I don’t. I don’t know why — it just never happens. Maybe 2019 is the year?
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
The Inheritance Cycle was one of my favourites when it was first released — I couldn’t book the first or second book down! But as the series progressed — and after Paolini made the decision to change it to four books instead of three — I grew bored. It wasn’t as exciting anymore. I’ve regretted not finishing it though, so I might try re-reading it this year.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
After reading a number of his short work collections and Animal Farm, I really wanted to read George Orwell’s other works. My friend let me borrow this — and then I never read it. I’m thinking I’ll add it to my April or May TBR list though!
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Okay … even my friends that don’t read much have read this series — WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!?! Seriously, I plan to read this ALL the time — and then just, well, don’t. Another “hopefully” 2019 read … we shall see though …
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
To be fair, I was young when the films came out — young enough that I don’t think I could’ve read this series and ACTUALLY know what was going on. And honestly, I don’t think I’ll ever end up reading it. I loved The Hobbit and believe Tolkien’s works are the work of magic — but I just don’t see myself getting around to it. You never know, though.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
Well … the obvious reason for this is that the book doesn’t release until May of this year … and I never applied for an ARC nor did I receive a request to review it. I’m super excited for this book though … and I’m totally buying it because THAT COVER!!!!!!!!
