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

One of my friends has always been telling me to read ‘Educated’ by Tara Westover, but for some reason, I still haven’t gotten around to picking up this book. The blurb hasn’t captured my interest much, to take it to the top of my TBR.

A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you never read it.

The Calvin and Hobbes Complete Collection. I am such a fan of this cartoon strip, yet, I’ve never read the complete collection and I keep dreaming that one day I’ll buy or own the entire comic strip and then finally read it.

A book in a series you’ve started and haven’t gotten around to finishing.

Oh there are quite a few, since one of my friends gifted me with the first for a couple of a series, but I haven’t been able to complete them. So I’ll mention one such series here, which I really want to finish and complete, just because I’ve enjoyed the first four books so much! I just have to get my hands on the kindle copy for the rest of the books I guess, since the libraries are closed here due to the pandemic lockdown. It’s the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett 🙂

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

Another genre that I haven’t read enough of. I’ve been rectifying this one classic at a time since the last year, but you have to admit, its not easy to read a Classic 🙂 However, I’ve recently read some really good ones, which despite their complex writing style, had me completely hooked. So one classic that I’d like to read next would either be the Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury or Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I even have a beautiful green soft leather cover version of the book, but alas, its stuck in my other house now, and I can’t read it unless I am back there, which doesn’t look like anytime soon. So illustrated man on kindle might be a more plausible option 🙂

A popular book that everyone but you has read

This is a tough one. I feel there are so many books that others have read which are highly popular in the book community, and I haven’t read it yet. There might be many such books in all the genres. But the two that come to the top of my mind – Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead from the literary fiction genre and The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas from the YA Fantasy genre.

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

I recently started watching Lemony Snicket’s – A Series of Unfortunate Events, series on Netflix and enjoying it so much that I wished I had read the books first. This will be rectified soon I hope 🙂

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

The current books that I’ve been seeing all over Instagram are Star Daughter and Hunted by the Sky. I’m waiting for my copy of Star Daughter to arrive by September, so soon, I wouldve picked it up and gushed over the beautiful cover as well! So excited!!! 🙂

So, that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed reading this tag and I hope I’ll rectify my ‘should’ve read these books’ situation to ‘Yay! I’ve finally read all these books’ status 😉 Although I’ve tagged a few bloggers below, please feel free to do this tag if you find it interesting and post your blog in the comments section below, so I can see your TBR and increase mine! 😀

  1. Ah, Prachi, I enjoyed reading your answers so much! 💖😍 I feel like I should read Educated too – a lot of the people love it, but just like you the blurb doesn’t seem very exciting to me
