Books I Want to Read – Book Tag

Book Tag

I found this tag this morning on Bookishly Rebecca, and it was originally created by Jamishelves.


A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it

16034235

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

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

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

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

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

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!)

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

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

1421: The Year China Discovered America by Gavin Menzies

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

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

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

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

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

43615

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

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.
