I Should Have Read That Book Tag

A while ago (a really while ago) I saw this tag over at Evelyn Reads and have been meaning to fill it out ever since. If you’re not already following please check out her blog, it’s fantastic. 🙂

-The Rules-

-The Questions-

A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read

lb-cover

Little, Big by John Crowley is a book one of my friends has been urging me to read for years. I’ve gotten some great book recs from him so I don’t know why I keep putting this off. I’ll admit the size is a little daunting, but I’ve read tomes before. Just have to get to it at some point.

A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up

Cold Steel by Kate Elliot. This is actually book 3 of a series and I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet! I was super excited when it came out and everything. Maybe I’m scared because it’s the end of the series and even though I want to finish series sometimes I’m sad when they’re over.

A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing yet

Well, I could pick from hundreds of books here because I’m terrible about starting series and not finishing them ahahahaha.

But let’s go with River Marked by Patricia Briggs, this is book 6 in her Mercy Thompson series which I have all intentions of catching up on one day. For sure.

A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read

eotw-cover

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan! I want to check this out sometime. Maybe later this year once I get through these couple of months full of ‘obligated reading’.

A popular book that seems everyone but you has read

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin is a book I started but then about 15% in I put it down and never picked it back up. This has got to be one of the most popular fantasy books that I haven’t yet read besides The Eye of the World

A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read yet

tlu-cover

To my great shame I have NOT yet read The Last Unicorn, but I have seen the movie. A lot. And I also have a graphic novel of the book signed by Peter Beagle (he’s a delightful man and I highly recommend meeting him if you ever get the opportunity).

A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up

shoeh-cover

I’ve seen The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid everywhere, but especially insta. I guess it makes sense, that cover is so striking with the colors. I do hope to read this one some day.

That’s it for this tag, that was fun. As per usual not tagging anyone but if you’d like to fill this one out, consider yourself tagged!

    This tag would be super easy for me, since there are so many books I still need to read!! I’d love to start the Mercy Thompson series, for example. I have no idea why I haven’t 🤣

    I wanted to start answering this one but got stuck because there are too many! And just I started feeling bad about all my unread babies, and now I might need a comfort read
    Little, Big is my A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ

    This is a fun tag – I’m always meaning to do these tags and then just forget (note to self!)
    Loved your answers and confess I also haven’t read the Last Unicorn – or the Wheel of time series.

      It was definitely fun to fill out. I haven’t done many tags this year, I’m catching up from tags I saved last year (I bookmark them on my browser toolbar so I remember to fill them out at some point lol).

  5. Off The TBR says:

    I read about half of Little Big and didn’t finish. Not because it was bad though. Something else came up that took my time and I set it down and just never came back to it. One day I need to read it again.

    I’d recommend GRRM’s books over the Wheel of Time ones…if you are debating what really long fantasy series to start. The plus for Wheel of Time is that the series is done, but it has 14 books.

    I’m new to blogging so am not sure about tags etc. but I will learn for sure. Re tomes – I was thinking about this the other day – does anyone write huge books any more? I remember reading Shogun by James Clavell and losing myself in that world, and Gone With the Wind – the first book I really did not want to come to the of. And Tolstoy of course, War and Peace and Anna Karenina, more worlds to get lost in! Also anything by James A Michener – his books were huge; I don’t anyone reads him anymore – I couldn’t myself now.

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Not sure as far as general lit as I tend to read mostly fantasy, but there’s definitely still tomes! I think one of the books I read last year was 800-some pages. For historical fiction, Ken Follett’s stuff always seems to be huge tomes, probably why I keep avoiding picking them up despite my interest haha.
