I would like to think that I’m not a picky reader. As long as the the story appeals to me I’ll add it up on my TBR. Most of the titles on my TBR were influenced by people I follow on Social Media and my friend’s recommendations. But still, not because the title is on my TBR and is popular I’ll immediately pick it up. I’m a huge mood reader that’s why (and I know) a LOT of great titles are still left unread on my TBR shelf.
I was browsing for Book Tag ideas and saw this at Dora @ Berries and Books and thought this was a fun post to do to reminisce and bring back to life some titles that are still left unread on my shelf. 😉😉
A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I would go with Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I have a LOT of friends who are bugging me to read and finish this series.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
This was just released four years ago but it feels like it has been sitting on my TBR for forever. I remember really anticipating for The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen, #1) by Roshani Chokshi during it’s release year but life happens and I was not able to pick it up. Its companion book was also released a year after and that book has also been sitting untouched on my shelf.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
For the past two years, I’ve really been itching to finish The Illuminae Files Series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I wanted to binge read the whole series so I can get the whole feels from it but unfortunately time seems to be not working on my side because I can’t seem to squeeze in this binge-reading that I wanted to do on my schedule. But I’ve included these books on my “Series To Finish Challenge List” this year so hopefully I’ll be able to finally tick this off on my TBR list.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
I’ve always been intrigued with The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I’ve read a lot of references about this book on some novels that I’ve read but I never really got into reading this – except the quick browse that I did on Wikipedia to know the book’s gist. 😜
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas. Yup. I haven’t read any SJM books aside from the Throne of Glass #1.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
The Umbrella Academy is one of my favorite series on Netflix (++ I’m so excited for it’s 2nd season this year!!) but I haven’t read the book/comics version of it.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
Almost all the bookish people that I follow on Instagram has at least one photo of The Folk of the Air Series by Holly Black on their feed. I also heard nothing but awesome-sauce things about this series.
