We all have some books that we’re a little…intimidated by. I’m going to be honest about the books that scare me.
1. A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t finished
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I’ve gotten probably a little over halfway through this book. I liked it. I really did. But, for some reason I just have no desire to finish it. It’s a great book I was intrigued by the storyline and characters. I just don’t care to finish it. I hope one day I will feel the need to finish it but right now is not the time.
2. A book you just haven’t had the time to read for
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
I’ve had this book on my TBR shelf for forever. I am totally interested in the storyline. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the books. Life and, let’s be honest, other books have gotten in the way. It just hasn’t worked out yet for me and this book.
3. A book you haven’t read because it’s a sequel
The Rose Society by Marie Lu
I really need to reread The Young Elites before I read this one. I feel like I’ve forgotten way too much of the story and characters to really give this book the reading it deserves. One day I will marathon through this series. One day.
4. A book you haven’t read because it’s brand new
This is honestly not a problem I ever have. I don’t go by which books I have had the longest. Typically I pick books just based upon what sounds the best. So, I don’t really have a book for this one.
5. A book by an author you read previously but didn’t really like
The Copper Gauntlet by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Okay so this answer isn’t fully honest. I do like some of Clare’s work. However, I did not like the Mortal Instruments series. I never finished the story and really just could not stand to read anymore of these books. I did like the Iron Trial and I’m excited to continue the series. I just haven’t had the chance to yet.
6. A book on your TBR pile that you’re just not in the mood to read
Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
I just haven’t had the desire to read this book even though this series has been one of my favorites ever. I was obsessed with this series when I first started it. I just haven’t picked it up. There’s no rhyme or reason.
7. A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t read because it’s enormous
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
I mean. I feel like this is a common feeling. These books are huge. This series is huge and it’s not even finished. I just can’t bring myself to read this one yet. Hopefully, someday soon that will change.
8. A book on your TBR you bought because of the cover
Wink, Poppy, Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
I bought this book purely because of the bookstagram pictures I was seeing of it. The synopsis is intriguing. However, I’ve heard very mixed reviews. So, I am less interested in reading it at this point.
9. The book on your TBR you find the most intimidating
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
I mean just look at it. Any questions? No? Good. This is a beast of a book. It scares me a little.
