A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it
I feel like I might be the only person left in the world who hasn’t read any Sarah J. Maas. Eventually, I do want to get around to reading the Throne of Glass Series, but I’m not quite ready to take on a massive seven-book series right now.
A book that’s really long
At 559 pages, this wouldn’t be the longest book I’ve ever read (that would be Brandon Sanderson’s Words of Radiance), but it’s still daunting.
A book you’ve owned/had on your TBR for too long
I’ve had a Barnes & Noble Classic edition of Anna Karenina for nearly a decade. I keep telling myself I’ll read it eventually, but it hasn’t happened yet.
A book that is ‘required’ reading
(eg, school text, really popular classic – something you feel obligated to read!)
I’m fairly certain that I was supposed to read this play in high school, but I never did. I’m not a huge fan of reading plays, but I know this is a highly influential work.
A book that intimidates you
I borrowed this book from my Dad on Christmas, and I still haven’t read it. I love history, and I’m particularly interested in Chinese history, but this book is massive. I keep telling myself I’ll read it soon, but I’m not entirely sure when that’ll happen.
A book that you think might be slow
I wasn’t a fan of the Cloud Atlas film adaptation, but I still want to give the book a chance. I’m just worried that it’s going to be dreadfully slow.
A book you need to be in the right mood for
Everyone has amazing things to say about this romance novel, but I have to be in just the right mood for romance books. I’m hoping I’ll be in the mood for it soon though!
A book you’re unsure if you will like
I’ve tried on three separate occasions to read this book, never making it past the first few chapters. I want to like this series, but I’m not sure I will. I plan on giving it one more shot, and if I’m not interested during the fourth attempt, I’ll DNF it forever.
