A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read.
You know how the Kindle app lets you highlight quotes and send them to your friends? My phone has been blowing up with quotes from the Space Team Series by Barry J. Hutchison. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi, but my friends have been rather persistent. And I do admit that most of the quotes have me laughing. So, I think I will actually give this one a try.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up.
My to-read pile consists of 376 books. Is that too much? I don’t think it’s too much. 😊 Looking through, the oldest books are from the Dragonlance series. When I first discovered Dragonlance I was obsessed. I asked everyone I knew to buy me books in the series, and through the years ended up owning all 200+ before they went out of print. It looks like Lord of the Rose takes the prize for being the oldest on my to-read list. And I might just have to start my quest to read them all once again.
A book in a series you’ve started but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet.
Confession time, this happens a lot to me. When I pick up a new series, I plow through all the published books. Then I become distracted by another series while I wait for the next book. My goal this year is to finish series that I drifted away from. One of those series is Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson Series. I ended on book 9 Fire Touched. I love Mercy Thompson and her tough as nails character, and I would love to be able to immerse myself in the world of shifters and werewolves again.
A classic you've always liked the sound of, but never actually read.
This one is tough. I stray far away from classic books. The writing styles tend to throw me off and I don’t enjoy them as much. Up until about a month ago I could have said His Dark Materials, but I finally had a chance to start reading them and I’ve been through the first two. I guess I can say The Hobbit, even though I couldn’t make it through The Lord of the Rings. I know, I know. I love fantasy, but not Tolkien. I’m an odd duck. But I’ve been told by numerous people that The Hobbit has a different writing style than the trilogy, so I might be able to make it through.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read.
A Game of Thrones. Hands down this is the most popular book that I have never read. Once upon a time, I might have taken on these books, but to be honest, there are just too many characters and the series isn’t finished. One of my best friends is in love with this series and she has an app that helps her keep track of everyone. I know I am most likely missing out but let me get back to you when it’s finished. I might force my brain to try and keep all those characters straight.
A book that inspired a film/tv adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet.
I’m not a huge movie or TV fan. I can sit down for hours to read a book but put me in front of a screen and I tend to wander off. Of the few shows I watch, I would have to say Riverdale is the only one that is based around a book that I haven’t read since it takes its inspiration from the comics.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t pick up yet.
This one would have to be The Burning White by Brent Weeks. I have read all the previous books in the Lightbringer Series but haven’t gotten a chance to circle back to this final book in the series. The Lightbringer series is phenomenal, using colors as magic and setting a new bar for high fantasy. Every time I see a post my want to read it grows. I swear I will read it by the end of this year!
Have you read any of these books? Are they on your to-read pile as well? Leave a comment and let me know!
And to my fellow book bloggers tag, you're it!
