The Questions:

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

I’ve hear so many amazing things about so many books. But, uh, why am I not remembering anything? I guess that irl I don’t have any friends who are constantly trying to get me to read books (that’s my job). Online though, I feel like everyone has been indirectly telling me to read You Should See Me in a Crown. I read reviews of this and see people mention it practically everyday, and I can’t wait to read it!


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

I started using Goodreads in November of last year, and before that, I didn’t really have a TBR. One book that I’ve been wanting to read for a REALLY long time is My Lady Jane, by


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

I started reading the second land of stories a while ago, but I never finished it. Maybe I will someday, but I might not.


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

A lot of them, to be honest. I’ve wanted to read Pride and Prejudice for a very long time, and I actually own a copy that my aunt gave me. So, a few weeks ago (or months? Time flies when you’re stuck at home) I picked it up and read a page. And put it down. And didn’t pick it up again.

I think that in a few years I’ll give it another try, and I’ll be able to get through it better.


A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

So many. There are so, so, many. But I really really want to read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han, and the other books in the trilogy. I’ve read a lot of amazing things about these books and I’ve wanted to read them for a really long time. Anyways, hopefully I’ll get around to reading the trilogy sometime soon.


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

Wait a second. Is this question asking me to, um, expose myself as having watched a movie without reading the book??? But, there is one. I watched the movie Crazy Rich Asians, and I really loved it. Then I noticed that, oh, there’s a book. That came first. So maybe I’ll be reading that sometime in the near future… Or maybe not.


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

I’ve only actually been on Instagram for a bit, but one book that I see all the time is, *blanks* lot’s of books? Tons and tons of books? Although I feel like I’m constantly seeing pictures of Six of Crows. And the Gilded Wolves. Both of those books are everywhere it seems. I also see a lot of Cassandra Clare books (none of which I have read.)

I tag:

Aria @ Snow White Hates Apples |Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books | Jane @ Blogger Books | You! Because tagging 10 whole people is a lot of work, okay

What’s book that’s been on your TBR forever and that you still haven’t picked up? Are there any movie adaptations that you love where you haven’t read the book? Chat with me in the comments below!

  1. Ooh I really want to read TATBILB soon too. I’m hoping to get it out of the library but only some have reopened yet and the system is really weird (you can’t look at books only list what you’re interested in and maybe you’ll get it to collect, so I’m kind of in two minds about trying it as what if I get half a series or all books I’ve read??)
    Hopefully you’ll love the books anyway as they sound so fun!!

  2. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAGGING ME! And uuuuu we have so much in common! I haven’t read To all the boys I’ve loved before either but I’m not sure I ever will because I know the movies so well?! And I also loved Crazy Rich Asians and the book surely is amazing as well, it’s on my TBR! And I’ve read and loved Six of Crows and every Cassie Clare book and they are worth the hype. I bet everyone’s telling you this on every site, but the stories and characters are so relatable and I was super enchanted and couldn’t stop reading!!!
    Happy reading, I hope to do the tag soon!

  3. Six of Crows and Kingdom of Ash have been on my TBR forever. I feel like I need to go back and reread the TOG series before I read Kingdom of Ash since it’s been so long since I read the others. I bought Six of Crows a while ago and still haven’t read it. I need to soon. It sounds amazing! 🙂

    1. I really want to read TOG so much!!! I’ve seen so many great things about it 🙂 I’ve actually read Six of Crows, and it’s really good, so I definitely recommend it!!

  4. Thank you much for the tag 💜💜 And sameeeee, I see Cassandra Clare’s books EVERYWHERE on Instagram! I’ve only read like one or two of them before they just…slipped my mind and never wen’t back 😂 I also watched Crazy Rich Asians before realizing there was a book. Though, seeing the less than stellar reviews, I’m still strongly on the fence on whether I’d pick the book up or not.

    1. You’re welcome!! There are also so many Cassandra Clare books that it’s kind of overwhelming 😂😂 I probably won’t pick up Crazy Rich Asians just because of everything that I’ve seen about it.
