The ‘I Should Have Read That Book’ Tag

We’ve all been there. Our TBR piles are tall enough to burst through the ceiling. The amount of times we’ve looked at a book and thought, “Why haven’t I read this yet?” is probably endless. So, today I’ll be doing a tag all about those unread books! I wasn’t tagged by anybody, but I thought it would be fun to do anyway~ 💗

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

wicked lovely

It’s been years that my friend Ari has been telling me to read the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr. Not only her, but one of my online friends growing up had this title as her username on the site we used to chat. I thought it was beautiful, and she suggested I read the book. I’m really not into fae stories, though, so I have yet to pick it up. Ari let me borrow the first three books in the series, so I should read them soon!

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

shadows on the moon

I really loved Zoe Marriott’s Name of the Blade trilogy, so I went ahead and bought this one about 4 years ago immediately after finishing it. Somehow, I still haven’t read Shadows on the Moon. The sequel is out now, too! Every winter, I tell myself I will, but… hopefully this will be the year I get a huge urge to read a Cinderella retelling.

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


A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas may be increasing my interest in fae stories (let’s be honest, it’s just Rhys that does this for me) but that doesn’t mean it’s still not hard for me to get into. I know that once I’ve got the rhythm of it, all will be fine, but I’m still hesitant. Also, it’s huge.

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

wuthering heights

This book was never brought up even once when I was in high school. The only exposure I got to it in my teen years was through the Twilight series, because Bella mentions reading it, if I recall correctly. A few years ago, I talked to a coworker about what her favorite classic was, and she mentioned that she’d really liked Wuthering Heights as a teenager because of all the angst. Listen. I know I should have been given that clue when this was brought up by Bella, of all people. I still know nothing much apart from that, but god, I’m a sucker for angst.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

grisha trilogy

The entire Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. This feels even more evident now that the casting for the Netflix adaptation is creating the biggest buzz on my timeline. The only thing I’ve read from this world is Six of Crows, but I just know I’ll be trash for The Darkling, so I’d like to read it soon.

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

I actually don’t have an answer for this! I always hold off before I watch an adaptation.

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

serpent and dove

Suddenly it feels like everybody has a copy of Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin! When I saw it in person for the first time, I nearly bought it, too. It’s also a Barnes and Noble YA Book Club pick, so that almost convinced me. I’m still not sure if I’m going to be reading it.

That’s it for the questions! I don’t know who has done this tag yet and I’m still pretty new to the blogosphere, so I’m only going to tag a few people. I’ll be tagging Dorka @ Berries and Books, Ash @ iinktrailss, and Jess over at Jessica C Writes. Sorry if you’ve done this tag already, and no pressure either! 💗 Also, feel free to do this even if I haven’t tagged you~ (you’re officially tagged now)

Are there any books on this list you’ve read? Which ones should I aboslutely have read by now!?

  1. I agree with you on both the ACOTAR series and Shadow and Bone series; I still have yet to read the second of ACOTAR and still haven’t read Shadow and Bone. However, I can’t recommend Serpent and Dove enough. The hype is truly there and for a very good reason
