Hello my lovelies. I recently binge watched Sasha of ABookUtopia on YouTube and one of the videos that I watched was her intimidating TBR tag where she answers questions and picks a book from her TBR list. The creator of this tag, Lindsey Ray I believe, stated that if you have more than 60 books in your TBR read (I have 70++!), you are welcomed to do this tag. But honestly no matter how many books you have you can do it if you want to.
1. WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU BEEN UNABLE TO FINISH?
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #2)
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice & Fire #1)
I made a blog post about it back in April so be sure to check it out. I started reading both books in 2014 and I am just struggling to finish both of them, to be honest. I love both series, don’t take my struggle to finish them is because that they’re not good. It’s not them, it’s me…
WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU YET TO READ BECAUSE…
2. …YOU JUST HAVEN’T HAD THE TIME?
Hush, Hush saga by Becca Fitzpatrick
I have read the first book and it was so good. Patch is one of my favourite fictional characters out of all the books/tv series I have read/watched. But after reading the first book back in 2013, I had so much on my plate with my studies and all I never got around to reading the second book so I will have to reread the first book before I can read the second.
3. …IT’S A SEQUEL?
Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Divergent #2)
I was so pumped to read this book but then the third (and also the last in this trilogy) book was released and I bought it and I found out online that Tris died and I just didn’t want to read it. Thank god they didn’t kill off Tris in the movie, though.
4. …IT’S BRAND NEW?
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #6)
My boyfriend got it for me a few days ago and of course before I can drown myself in it I will have to finish the other 4 books in the series (refer ques. 1)
5. …YOU READ A BOOK BY THE SAME AUTHOR AND DIDN’T ENJOY IT?
None so far.
6. …YOU’RE JUST NOT IN THE MOOD FOR IT?
Caster Chronicles series by Kami Garcia
I don’t know why but ever since I got the series, I have never been interested to pick it up and read the first book. I didn’t like the movie all that much so I guess that kind of threw me off from reading it.
7. …IT’S HUMONGOUS?
Sing You Home and Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult
Both of them are in no way thick but they are huge. I have them in hard cover and honestly I got them because they are in hard cover from Big Bad Wolf sale. If you’ve ever been to BBW sale, you’d know that mostly people aim for the hard covers because they’re really expensive and you can get them there for a super cheap price.
8. …BECAUSE IT WAS A COVER BUY THAT TURNED OUT TO HAVE POOR REVIEWS?
Honestly, most of the romance books in my collection but if I have to pick, it would be the L.A. Candy series by Lauren Conrad. Great cover, not so great reviews. I am the type of person who read reviews before reading a book and if I see one bad review, that’s it I’m not reading it which also explains why I have a lot of books in my TBR.
9. WHAT IS THE MOST INTIMIDATING BOOK IN YOUR TBR PILE?
A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
THESE. BOOKS. ARE. JUST. STARING AT ME. I CAN IMAGINE THEM SAYING “ERIN WHY HAVEN’T YOU READ US ALREADY?” TO ME EVERYTIME I PASS BY MY BOOKSHELF. THEY’RE JUST THERE…….
But don’t worry I will read them I love the Game of Thrones so much!
