A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read

Kate hasn’t actually told me to read this specifically but I feel that because she loves Victoria Schwab so much and her series A Darker Shade of Magic that I should really get to finishing this series. I know that I will have to re-read the first book, A Darker Shade of Magic because I don’t really remember very much from it.

A book that’s been on your TBR for forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up

Uprooted by Naomi Novik is a book that has been on my shelves since it was released but  I just haven’t picked it up yet. When I bought it, I really wanted to read it but I was going through a time when I was buying basically every book I could get my hands on so I ended up with a load of books to read, but I wasn’t actually reading them at the same pace I was buying. I do still want to read this one though and Spinning Silver.

A book in a series you’ve started but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. This year I want to finish more series and this is on my list of series to finish this year. I especially want to finish it as King of Scars was released at the end of January so I want to read that.

A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I’m not sure how much I’ll enjoy it as I don’t tend to get on very well with classics but it is a book I would really like to read and having read the first few pages, it doesn’t seem toooo bad.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

So I’m cheating a little bit as it’s not quite a book, but a series instead. The Mortal Instruments books are so incredibly popular but I’ve only read the first two. If I read all of the Cassandra Clare books that I own, I would be able to clear about 12-13 books off my TBR alone. That’s a lot of books to read by one author!

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love but just haven’t read yet

I’m struggling to think of an answer to this one because I usually watch the film/tv adaptations of books if I really enjoyed the book. I’d probably say Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I don’t love the film but I did quite enjoy it and I haven’t read the book yet. I want to read the original story first though before I read this.

A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet

This is difficult because there are a lot of books that are all over instagram that I haven’t yet read. Perhaps Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas because that came out in October and I still haven’t read it. If I’m honest, I haven’t even read Tower of Dawn yet but I do want to get this finished now.

This was quite a fun tag to do and it’s given me a little more chance to focus on the books I do want to read in 2019.
