BOOK THAT YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO READ BECAUSE EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT IT

Ok, so at the moment everyone seems to be talking about Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff. I haven’t read this series and I think I need to read the series. I think I might add the series to my 2020 TBR.

A REALLY LONG BOOK

Les Miserables

I’m going to keep to the same answer as in my first post and say Les Mis. The size still scares me, but I now own a copy of it thanks to be best friend friend who brought me the cloth bound version for my birthday this year. So, now I have no excuse not to read it.

A BOOK YOU’VE OWNED/HAD ON YOUR TBR FOR TOO LONG

The Return of the King

The Return of the King by J.R.R Tolkien. I’ve had this boxset the longest on my shelves and this is the last book left to read in the series.

A BOOK THAT IS ‘REQUIRED’ READING (e.g., SCHOOL TEXT, REALLY POPULAR CLASSIC – SOMETHING YOU FEEL OBLIGATED TO READ!)

Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies by William Golding. It seems most people read this book at school. But, we never did and I’ve always wanted to read it especially as people who have read it have said it was really good. I do have a copy of it on my TBR shelves so I will get around to reading it one day.

A BOOK THAT INTIMIDATES YOU

4835392

World Without End by Ken Follett. It’s quite long and the size alone is intimidating as I have so many other books to read.

A BOOK THAT YOU THINK MIGHT BE SLOW

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis De Bernières. I’ve really wanted to read this book for years but I just think it might be a bit on the slow side.

A BOOK YOU NEED TO BE IN THE RIGHT MOOD FOR

I couldn’t choose an exact book but I definitely need to be in the right mood to pick up a book written by Jodi Picoult.

A BOOK YOU’RE UNSURE IF YOU WILL LIKE

The Poppy War

I really want to read The Poppy War by R.F Kuang. It sounds great, but after all the hype  I’m worried that I might not like it. Especially as hyped up books and me don’t really work out often. Never the less I will still give it ago once it arrives from the library.

  1. Love your answers! I definitely feel you on a lot of them. I feel that I have to be in the right mood for Picoult too but I’ve been a huge fan of hers since high school! I also feel the same way about Poppy War and I think that’s why I’ve been putting off reading it for so long? Lol I’m really worried I won’t like it 🙈

    • Thanks Dini!! I just signed up for the free trial on Scribd and The Poppy War is on there as audiobook so hopefully I can start it next few days, and it won’t be disappointing 😁. I love Picoult’s books, just haven’t had chance to read any of her newer stuff.

    • Thanks Emer!!! I finally picked up The Return of the King today. Reading it physically and listening to the audiobook. The series can finally be moved to my read books shelves 🙈😊
