Books I Want to Read but Don’t Want to Read Tag

Hey there, my lovelies! 🙂

I was tagged for this by the amazing Laura @ Laura Herondale’s Book Blog and I’m sorry it took me so long to get to it! But oh well I’m here now and I’m finally doing this!! XD So thank you for tagging me, Laura! If you don’t know her blog already you should definitely check it out! She’s a really awesome girl and writes funny and interesting blog posts! 🙂 Make sure to show her some love! ❤

Also, this tag was originally created by Jamieson @Jamishelves, so you should check out her blog as well! 🙂 I swear there are so many amazing bloggers on wordpress it’s really hard to keep up with all of them. XD

  1. A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it:


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – J.K Rowling

Is there anyone out there who didn’t read this yet? Well, except of me of course. *lol* I really want to read this but at the same time I don’t because so many people who read it were disappointed by it. As it seems it’s one of those books you either love or hate and I’m so afraid it might be the latter one for me. Which would ruin my HP experience and fandom and I don’t want this to happen so I’ve been procrastinating for years. XD

  1. A book that’s really long:

War and Peace – Leo Tolstoi

Do I even have to explain why? This book is huge! Really huge! So huge you could use it as a weapon to defend yourself. *lol* And this makes it really intimidating! I mean this has more than 1.000 pages, so it’s no wonder I didn’t dare to read it yet.

  1. A book you’ve owned/had on your tbr for too long:


A Darker Shade of Magic – V.E Schwab

I don’t even know how long this has been on my TBR. I already had it on my TBR before I joined goodreads and it’s been collecting dust on my shelf for about 3 years. *lol* Funnily enough I really want to read this!!! I’m just scared that I’ll love it too much! I have the same feeling with this as I had before I started “The Raven Cycle” and you all know how much I adore this series and its characters! I live and breathe for them! So urgh… I hope Schwab won’t destroy me as much as Maggie did. >_<

  1. A book that is required reading:


A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens

I agree with Laura here! A Tale of Two Cities is one of those classics that pretty much everyone has read, or at least heard of. And just like Laura I feel a need to read this because Will and Tessa mentioned it so often in The Infernal Devices! Still, it’s a heavy and thick book and even though I wanted to understand what they’ve been talking about I still couldn’t bring myself to read this book. Well, as it seems my bookie Jar has other plans for me though, because I recently pulled it out of it and therfore will read it soon. XD

  1. A book that intimidates you:

The Passage – Justin Cronin

Now that’s a special case because I already read this book years ago and I loved it! And when “The Twelve” came out I immediately bought it and did the same with “The City of Mirrors”. So yes, I have the entire trilogy in my shelves but I still didn’t read more than the first book. Why? Because I loved the first book but feel like I need to reread it in order to understand the other two. *lol* And I’m too lazy to motivate myself to pick it up again. Also 9 years have passed ever since I read “The Passage” and zombies give me the creeps. XD (I kinda love them though… Urgh I’m such a masochist! *lol*)

  1. A book that you think might be slow:


Muse of Nightmares – Laini Taylor

GAH!!! I want to read this so badly but considering how slow the first book was I’m pretty sure that the second one will have a slow pace too. And right now I’m just not in the mood for slow books. I blame it all on Amie and Jay! They are killing me with their Illuminae files. *lol* But don’t fear, I’ll hopefully read this sooner or later this year. ;-P At least it’s on my Book List of 2019!

  1. A book you need to be in the right mood for:

Turtles All the Way Down – John Green

I like John Green books but I definitely have to be in the right mood to read them. I know there are a lot of people who hate his books and others that love them deeply and I guess I’m somewhere in the middle. I like to read them but if I’m not in the right mood I better don’t even pick them up. XD So yeah, I guess “Turtles All the Way Down” will have to wait a little while longer.

  1. A book you’re unsure if you’ll like:


Raido Silence – Alice Oseman

I heard so many good things about this but that’s exactly the reason why I’m hesitant to pick it up. *lol* People are raving about it as much as they are raving about “Children of Blood and Bone” and even though I enjoyed Tomi Adeyemi’s book I still had many issues with it. So sometimes I tend to swim against the stream when it comes to popular books and I’m not sure if I’ll like it or not. I mean I love and absolutely adore Heartstopper so I guess I’ll just have to give it a try. 😉

And now to the fun part:

  2. Awww thank you so much for your kind words 💕 I loved reading your answers to this tag!
    Definitely lmk if you end up loving A Tale of Two Cities; maybe then I’ll have the motivation to pick it up and see why Will and Tessa are so obsessed 😊
    I definitely see why you might be wary about MoN being slow after Strange the Dreamer, but I found that it was actually a lot faster paced than the first book! I absolutely loved it, so hopefully you enjoy it, too, when you do pick it up.
    Ahhhh omg I feel you about Radio Silence. Personally, I feel like I’m totally gonna love it, but the whole being wary about hype thing is such a mood. There are so many books that I’ve heard nothing but great things about, and yet it’s BECAUSE of that that I’m so worried that I won’t enjoy it as much, cuz it’s hard to live up to so much hype, yk?

    1. You’re welcome! 😀 I’ll let you know if I loved „A Tale of Two Cities“ or not! *lol* I hope I do! MoN is on my list of 2019 so I’ll definitely read it sooner or later. It’s good to hear you enjoyed it so much! It gives me hope that it won’t be slow. *lol*
      I know! I felt like that with „Children of Blood and Bone“! The book was so hyped and I really liked it but there were still some parts I had issues with. XD I’ll cross my fingers for both of us that we’ll like Radio Silence. 😉
