Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for another Tag Tuesday. This one I got from a couple YouTube videos and thought it was appropriate since my TBR pile is kicking my butt here lately.
My Intimidating TBR Book Tag
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE THE TIME
I feel horrible for not getting to ACOTAR yet, but I really haven’t had the time. And with the second book coming out, it just made sense to wait a little longer. Thankfully my book club, The Literary Lions, is reading both books next month, so I will knock it off my TBR.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT’S A SEQUEL
I really didn’t mind The Knife of Never Letting Go. It was interesting and different and a great story. But it took me so dang long to get through, that I don’t think I want to spend that much more time with these characters through two more books.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT’S BRAND NEW
This book is only a few months old, and it’s very new to my shelf. I really want to get to it but it’s down the list unfortunately. Hopefully I can start tearing through my TBR and actually get to it sooner rather than later.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE I DIDN’T LIKE THE AUTHOR
It’s not that I don’t like Holly Black, quite the opposite. It’s just that the last book I read by her was The Darkest Part of the Forest and I really really really didn’t like it at all. So it made me feel weird about picking up another Holly Black standalone. I do plan to give this a try, I just need some time.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE I’M NOT IN THE MOOD FOR IT
I’m going to sound horrible for this, but Glass Sword is something that I have totally put off due to not being in the mood. I read the first book when it first came out and I felt like I really needed a refresher before beginning the second. But I haven’t been ready to jump back into that world yet.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT’S HUGE
So it’s not really that The Game of Thrones alone is huge, it’s just a huge commitment to the whole series. I have to set time to complete a series or else stop completely. And because of that, I don’t know if I will ever be able to get to it. It’s such a large commitment.
I HAVEN’T READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT WAS A COVER BUY
So this is a book that I bought because I originally thought it would be good, I thought the cover was great but ultimately the reviews threw me off wanting to read it. This would definitely be Undertow. I bought it because it was brand new, the cover and end papers are very appealing, and it seemed interesting. But I haven’t heard that a lot of people have read it, and I haven’t heard the best things from the people who have read it.
MY MOST INTIMIDATING BOOK IN MY TBR
Can I say all of them? No? Okay, well I’m still going to say a few. The Vampire Academy series intimidates me. I haven’t had the time to just pick up a longer series, but I really want to. It’s just a lot of books, even though they are short, and I liked the movie so much that I don’t want to have expectations for the books.
So what are some of your most intimidating books in your TBR pile?
