It’s time for another tag! The wonderful Crystal @ Paper Royalty and Rachael @ Bath and Books tagged us to do the I Should Have Read That tag which was created by Beth @ Books Nest. We’re super excited to do this tag, because who doesn’t love listing all the books you said you would read and then didn’t?
A BOOK THAT A FRIEND IS ALWAYS TELLING YOU TO READ
Chana: Malka has been telling me to read Eliza and her Monsters for agesssss. And I really do have to get to it since it looks really good.
Malka: Chana has told me more than once to read The Eli Monpress series, and I’ve even gotten it out from the library (twice), but I need to actually dedicate my time to it. So hopefully I’ll get to it in the summer!
A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR FOREVER, YET YOU STILL HAVEN’T PICKED IT UP
Chana: Literally any book that I’ve picked up at a convention and then forgotten that I owned. In two months it’ll have been a year since I got That’s Not What Happened, but I still don’t seem to be any closer to reading it.
Malka: Hmmm. This is a tough one. I’m going to go with Little Fires Everywhere. Even though it’s not the oldest book on my TBR, it’s the one I’m most intrigued by that I haven’t read yet, even after having it for over a year.
A BOOK IN A SERIES YOU STARTED BUT HAVEN’T GOTTEN ROUND TO FINISHING YET
Chana: Hahahaa. I have so many of these. I am a chronic abandon series in middle, because other books capture my attention kind of gal. Right now I really want to finish the Gentlemen Bastard series, since I only have one book left to that series.
Malka: Kingdom of Ash. I’m mentioning this one because I hope to finish the series this month and I’d like to be held accountable. Although honestly, just starting this behemoth of a finale in April is a win for me.
A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ
Chana: Pride and Prejudice is the first thing that comes to mind. I have read a lot of classics but that is one that I want to read just so that I can watch the multiple movies.
Malka: I’m super intrigued by Frankenstein! I really want to read it but I’ve found that the easiest way for me to read a classic is to find a pretty edition. So once I have that, I will probably get around to reading it.
some of the editions that would have me reading Frankenstein in a heatbeat
A POPULAR BOOK IT SEEMS EVERYONE BUT YOU HAS READ
Chana: A Court of Thorns and Roses. And the rest of the Throne of Glass series.
Malka: SO MANY. An Ember in the Ashes, Cruel Prince, Wicked Saints. And guess what? I have no intention of reading any of them * laughs evilly *
A BOOK THAT INSPIRED A FILM/TV ADAPTATION THAT YOU LOVE, BUT JUST HAVEN’T READ YET
Chana: Well if Malka can use a comic book, then so can I! I loved the Kingsman movies, and I have gotten some of the comics, but I have never read any of the ones by the original writer, just the reboots.
Malka: Totally gonna cheat here so that I can hype up the TV show. I just finished watching Umbrella Academy with Chana, and it was AMAZING! I really want to read the comics now!
A BOOK YOU SEE ALL OVER INSTAGRAM BUT HAVEN’T PICKED UP
Chana: Godsgrave! It’s one of the many books that are in a series that I’ve abandoned. I keep on seeing it on Insta and then commenting, lol I have to read that before Darkdawn comes out.
Malka: Priory of the Orange Tree. I’ve seen it EVERYWHERE, enough so that I’m willing to pick it up with barely any knowledge of what it’s about!
