I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel a little conflicted about picking up books… which is why this tag is perfect! Thank you so much to the lovely, creative and entertaining Sophie @Sophie’s Corner (sophiexli.com) for tagging me to do this one!
- Link back to the original tag (this post, and Jami!)
- Complete the questions with books you want to have read but don’t want to read
- Tag some people at the end to do the tag next
A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it
Weirdly it’s the rest of the Wheel of Time series- but I didn’t like Eye of the World, mostly cos of the writing style, so I’m resisting the second one even if I keep hearing it’s worth it in the end!
A book that’s really long
Don Quixote– really intimidates me cos of that!
A book you’ve owned / had on your TBR for too long
Gardens of the Moon is one of the first books I bought on my kindle… and I still haven’t read it! I guess I’m just really nervous about whether I’m going to like it!
A book that intimidates you
Ulysses– I’ve had vague intentions to read it forever, but it scares the hell out of me!
A book that you think might be slow
Silas Marner probably- because I’ve read a couple of George Eliot books and, while I enjoyed them, I found them pretty slow paced. It’s why I need to be in the right mood for them.
A book you need to be in the right mood for
Well, I’m a massive mood reader, so *EVERYTHING*! I’m going with Gideon the Ninth, because I keep hearing amazing things from people I trust, but can’t bring myself to pick it up.
A book you’re unsure if you will like
The Poppy War may prove to be a little graphic for me (especially since I know it draws inspiration from the Rape of Nanking). It’s just going to be a tough one to read. I keep seeing so much buzz for it and downloaded a copy to my kindle, so I’m going to have to bite the bullet at some point.
And that’s all for now! What books do you feel conflicted about reading? And do you recommend any of the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments!
