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:

626F6F78747265616D=7474747474727576707<7473

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:

23403402

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:

1953

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:

25446343

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:

30653843

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:

My Bad Reading Habits Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Caidyn and his answers were a lot of fun to read. Mostly because I found myself in them, too. XD If you don’t know his blog yet, you definitely should check it out! It’s a really lovely blog and I enjoy reading it a lot!

I think I have many bad reading habits, so I guess I had this tag coming. *lol* Okay, let’s get this over with. *braces for the painful truth*

Rankenzeile

READING WHILE DOING SOMETHING ELSE.

Haha! I totally agree with Caidyn here, I’m king at this one too. *lol*

I’ve the very bad habit to listen to music while I read. Which is probably one of the main reasons I haven’t tried audio books yet, because listening to a book while reading one would be kinda crazy, but then again I listen to music while I’m reading so erm yeah….you get what I mean, right? Also I can watch TV while I read and sometimes I even cook or eat while reading. Jeez! I just realized this is a really bad habit indeed. XD

Rankenzeile

DESPERATELY WAITING FOR NEW RELEASES BUT NOT READING THEM ONCE THEY ARE ACTUALLY OUT

Of all my reading habits this is probably the worst! Whenever I see an amazing book that’s going to be released in a year I whine and want to buy and read it immediately but once it’s actually out I just D.O.N.T R.E.A.D I.T! Why am I like this?! I’ve been like that with “Restore Me”, “Kingdom of Ash” and about ten thousand other releases. Once I get to them they are already at least three months out and the hype has died down. *lol*

Rankenzeile

IGNORING MY PHYSICAL BOOK SHELF

*ignores the death glare from my books*

Before I joined goodreads there was a time when I could say that I read almost every physical copy that was in my shelf. Now? Not so much! XD One and a half years later and I have to avoid their laser death stare. *lol* I swear I haven’t bought that many books in ages and there are entire series waiting to be read. And what am I doing? I go to the library and borrow other books I read before I even pick up the ones I already own. I. AM. HORRIBLE.! I know! >_<

Rankenzeile

READING A MILLION BOOKS AT ONCE

I’m exactly like Caidyn when it comes to this! It’s funny that our reading habits are so similar because I have different times to read my four or five books too. I usually read one in the morning when I’m on my way to work, one in the afternoon when I drive back from work and another one in the evening when my kid is in bed. And because this only makes three different books per day, I vary every other day. Haha! Wow, talk about bad reading habits.

Rankenzeile

COUNTING PAGES

I really dunno why I do this!! Maybe it’s the statistician in me; maybe it’s my inner control freak, but I ALWAYS look at the amount of pages first! And when my reading time is limited I even count the pages of the chapters in order to gauge if I’ll be able to finish the chapter or not. When I start a buddy read I’m even worse because my buddies and I usually set an amount of chapters we’re going to finish per day and then I’m basically forced to look up how long they are. It’s the dynamic of the buddy read, I swear. *lol*

 

Well, that were five of my worst reading habits and I’m kinda alarmed now because I could have added so much more! XD

I’m tagging Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams, Ashley @ Bubbly Booknerd and  Camile @ This Chamber of Books! As always you don’t have to do the tag, it would be fun to read your answers though. 😛

Two Truths and a Lie

Ohh, I’m already curious who will be able to detect the lie. 😛

> When I was a teen I read 30 books in a month

> I never dnf’d a book

> I own more than 300 physical books

I Tag

may @ my 1st chapter

Kacey @ Tales of a Bibliophile

Caidyn @ BW Reviews

Hamad @ The book prescription

Iris @ Hoard of Books

Sarah @ Sarah’s Books

Kathy @ Books and Munches

And here is the lie:

I own more than 300 physical books. I wish this would be true but so far it are only (*lol*) about 200. Unfortunately there’s not enough space in my shelves and if I know I won’t read a book again I either donate it to the library or a charity flea market. I still dream of my own library in a big house though. XD

 

So were you able to guess the lie?! Let me know! 😀
