I saw this tag going around on youtube last month and really enjoyed watching everyone’s videos so I decided to have a go at it myself. I don’t have the biggest TBR that I’ve ever seen, in fact I have been steadily whittling it down over the past few months (hope I didn’t just jinx it) but I still have enough to easily do this tag. The original video for this tag has been taken down so I can’t credit the creator but if I could I would 🙂
What book have you been unable to finish?
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
I tried reading this back when the first Hobbit film was released or around that time anyway and I made it halfway through before putting it down. I didn’t even make a conscious decision to stop reading i just forgot about it to be honest. I plan to try reading this again at some point but I think I want to try reading LotR first before going back.
What book have you yet to read but haven’t had the time?
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
Have you seen the size of this book? My edition at least has tiny writing which hurts my eyes after a while. I might invest in a better edition before trying this but we’ll see. This has been nagging at me for a while now so I might get around to this sooner than I think.
What book have you yet to read because it is a sequel?
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Third in a series still counts right? I read Cinder and loved it. I read Scarlet: eh it was okay. Of course because I had mixed feelings about Scarlet it has put me off reading Cress. I want to carry on with the series though because I have heard nothing but good things about all of the other books and companion books in the series. I would like to complete my collection too but I can’t in good conscious buy the rest of the books when I still haven’t read Cress!
What book have you yet to read because it is brand new?
This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab
What book have you yet to read because you read a book by the same author and didn’t enjoy it?
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I didn’t enjoy Fangirl. I have made no secret of it. There was something about the story I could not connect to and maybe it was because at the time I read it it was too close to my own situation for me to enjoy it. I don’t know but because I didn’t enjoy Fangirl it has made me a little reluctant to read this. I love the sound of the synopsis though and liked the Simon Snow parts of Fangirl hence why I brought it. I’ll read it eventually but I don’t know when yet.
What book are you yet to read because you’re just not in the mood for it?
Assassins Apprentice by Robin Hobb
I really want to read this but every time I look at it I am reminded that this is the first book in a massive series of books and it just causes me to skip over it.
What book have you yet to read because it is humongous?
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I think this is a popular answer for this question. It would not surprise me in the least. This is a beast of a book and the others in the series are nothing to ignore either!
What book have you yet to read because it was a cover buy and it ended up not having very good reviews?
The Alchemyst by Micheal Scott
Technically this was not a cover buy it was an impulse buy. One of the youtubers I follow recommended this book when I first started watching Booktube videos and I decided to buy it. I still haven’t read it and I am not even sure what it is about. I assume it has something to do with magic though by the title.
What is the most intimidating book on your TBR?
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami, Translated by Nathan Collins
I’ve read a quarter of this and it took me an age! The gore and the writing style took me a long time to get to grips with not to mention the amount of names you have to remember. It makes it a little hard to connect with the characters and be sad about their deaths when you can’t even remember their names.
Who do I tag?
If you’re interested in doing this tag and have yet to do it then please feel free, if you do it because you’ve read this post then please leave a comment and a link I’d love to see your answers.
I know it has been a while since I last did a blog post but I was feeling uninspired for a while I have a few ideas for upcoming posts so I should be posting new content soon 🙂

Until Next Time,
