I Should Have Read that Book Tag

The I Should Have Read That Book Tag has been on my book-tag to-do list for quite a while. I love this tag because I have a love for talking about the books I haven’t read– and don’t even get me started on the ones that I have read. I’m not too ashamed of admitting what books I haven’t yet picked up yet or ones that I really have no intention of reading. The ‘I should have read that book’ tag was created by Beth of Books Nest. 

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

 So many of my book blogging friends have told me that it’s finally time for me to pick up Natasha Ngan’s Girls Made of Paper and Fire

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

I haven’t been afraid to admit that there are a few books on my TBR that have sat there for a while (hello Magnus Chase), but one that I haven’t mentioned before is Jeff Zenter’s The Serpent King. According to Goodreads, I’ve had this book on my TBR since June 2017 when I picked up a physical copy at Book Con. This book seems to be everyone’s Jeff Zenter fave and has definitely caught my interest for having a character who is a fashion blogger.

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

I’m currently not in the middle of reading a book in a series, but one book I would like to read somewhat soon is Marissa Meyer’s Supernova, the final book in the Renegades trilogy. I’m usually someone who loves to binge-read series or read the books as close together as possible, but I didn’t find myself wanting to jump right away in Supernova after finishing Archenemies last month. I plan on checking Supernova out from the library the next time I’m home from college.

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

Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club has been on my TBR for at least two years. If I pick up a classic anytime soon, it has to be this one.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

I feel like so many of my fellow bloggers who love new adult and adult contemporary books read Jen DeLuca’s Well Met during the summer and fall. My library hasn’t yet ordered this one, and I’m considering buying my own copy. We all know that this reader will take any excuse to buy a paperback. 

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

Friday Night Lights is one of my all-time favorite TV shows. This is one of the rare instances where I haven’t read the book before watching the film/TV adaptation. I’m really not a big non-fiction reader outside of memoirs and pop culture-inspired ones, but I’d like to push myself outside of my comfort zone and read this one. I’m always a big sports fan IRL so reading FNL may encourage me to pick up more sports non-fiction as well. 

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

Roshani Choski’s The Gilded Wolves was all over my bookstagram and blog feeds earlier in 2019. I definitely intend on picking up on this series, but me being me with series, I’m not sure exactly when.

  1. “Dear Edward,” which is on my January TBR, I just haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet!
    “The Friend Zone,” which seems to be the one romance novel everybody loved last year.
    “Ask Again, Yes,” which has been sitting on my book cart for more than half a year now.
    “The Handmaid’s Tale” – honestly, no idea how I haven’t read this yet, but it’s still on my TBR!

    • I read The Handmaid’s Tale way before the Hulu/TV show hype and I absolutely love it! The Friend Zone has also popped up on my TBR radar. Happy reading!
