A BOOK THAT A FRIEND IS ALWAYS TELLING YOU TO READ

16143347

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. One of my friends who isn’t the biggest reader loves this book and has read it more than once so she always says that I should read it. I know it is a mystery with friends who lie to each other. It sounds interesting and is meant to be surprising from what I’ve heard so I am curious.

A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR FOREVER, YET YOU STILL HAVEN’T PICKED IT UP

22055262

So many books *hides in shame* but I… [insert valid excuse here]. You can see my letter to my TBR here. But one that I have been meaning to read for the longest time is… A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab. Even though I know it is a relatively new series which started in 2015, I’ve only been a “serious reader” in the last couple of years so I have always been meaning to read it and I really want to. It sounds great and I really want to read more V E Schwab books as well.

A BOOK IN A SERIES YOU STARTED BUT HAVEN’T GOTTEN ROUND TO FINISHING YET

20821111

The Young Elites by Marie Lu. I’ve read the first one but I still need to get to the next two. I did enjoy the first one, it felt slightly generic at the beginning  but the end wasn’t what I was imagining and I think the series is going in a really interesting way so I hope I can pick up the sequels soon.

A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ

20898092

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I want to find a classic I like and I know people who love this and recommend it so I am interested to read it. And I actually don’t know that much about the story so I am interested to get to know more about it. I am hoping to listen to the audiobook soon.

A POPULAR BOOK IT SEEMS EVERYONE BUT YOU HAS READ

26032825

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. I have heard a lot of talk about this book. I definitely have a picture of Jude and Carden in my head.  I do want to pick this one up because it’s ‘enemies’ to ‘enemies together’ I think. And I love bad characters and reading how they navigate situations. I am going to get on that hype train.

A BOOK THAT INSPIRED A FILM/TV ADAPTATION THAT YOU LOVE, BUT JUST HAVEN’T READ YET

12885649

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I really love the film adaptations but I have never picked up the books and honestly I don’t want to which might sound bad. But I lovely the portrayal and theme of the movies and don’t really feel the need for more information. I might have read it at one point but that moment has passed.

A BOOK YOU SEE ALL OVER INSTAGRAM BUT HAVEN’T PICKED UP

27883214

Caraval series by Stephanie Garber with its many beautiful covers (I can definitely understand why it has been on Instagram so much) and with ‘Finale’ coming out I have been seeing it around a lot lately!! I am interested in this series and I know it is well loved. It had a magical world with a sister bond at the front of the story (YES!). And the covers are very, very pretty so it is tempting (I am certainly being shallow here)!!

  1. So glad you done this tag! I loved your answers. One you should read is Caraval. That whole series is just magical and probably my favorite fantasy. The Hunger Games series is also just as amazing as the movies.

  3. Ahh this is such a fun tag! I’ve been meaning to continue with the young elites series just as well, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet… I’ve heard mixed things about the sequels, so I’m a little nervous to read them ahah 🙂

    1. Yes it was fun to do and I had plenty of options for books that I need to read haha!!
      Yes I am intrigued to see where ‘The Young Elites’ series go. I haven’t heard too much about the sequels myself but hopefully we will both enjoy them. 🙂 Even though I can be really bad at prioritising sequels because I get swept up in new releases and new books!! haha!! 🙂

  4. I’ve been meaning to read ‘A Darker Shade Of Magic’ for ages as well. I absolutely adore the sound of every book by the author that I’ve come across so I seriously do need to make sure that I start reading her books soon.

    1. Yes same– I’ve heard so many good things about ADSOM and it is meant to be becoming a movie I think so I definitely want to read it before then.
      Yes I love the sound of a lot of books by V E Schwab so I want to read more of her books. I know so many that are a fan of her books so I am excited!! 😊

      1. So have I and I think I remember hearing about the film actually, although I’d completely forgotten about it until you mentioned it.
        I’m super excited to get on with it, and some of her other books too. I’m especially eager for Addie La Rue, I absolutely adore the sound of that book.

        1. I kind of keep forgetting about it becoming a movie too but everytime someone tweets about it I’m like “I really need to read those books ASAP” 😂😂
          Yes when I heard the premise of Addie La Rue I wanted that book immediately!! It sounds amazing!! 😍

          1. I’d already decided that I really wanted to make them a priority but now that I’m on Instagram, and see them all of the time, it’s making me even more desperate to read them.
            I totally agree. I literally can’t wait to read that book. I also can’t wait to see what the cover for it will be like.

            1. Yes I see them a lot on Instagram too!! It definitely makes me eager to read them!!
              Ohh.. yes I hadn’t thought of the cover– I better it will be amazing!! And it will probably be red, black and white like most of V E Schwab’s other books!! (I love that she has a colour theme haha)!!

              Liked by 1 person

              1. There are a couple of other books that I see on there all of the time as well and it keeps making me think ‘I really need to get on with that’ about every single one :L
                I hadn’t actually realized the colour theme thing but I just looked and you’re totally right! You’re right the new one probably will be those colours then and probably absolutely amazing. I’m constantly checking for updates on that and Kingdom Of Back :L I’m desperate to learn more about those two books. And to finally start reading some other books by the authors.

                1. Yes that’s what instagram does 😂😂
                  Yes I saw someone tweeted about the colour theme and was like oh yeah!! 😂 yes I think it will be an amazing cover!!
                  It is nice to be excited for new books!! I hope they are both amazing! 😊
