Book tag: I should have read that book!

Hey everyone! Today, I thought I’d do a book tag that I haven’t been tagged in but I’ll do it anyway. It’s called the ‘I should have read that book’ tag. I first saw this tag over at Ally writes things so go give her some love. Anyway, let’s get into it.

The rules are as follows;

• Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post
• Link to the creator’s blog ( in your post
• Answer the questions below
• Tag others to take part

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

I don’t have many (any) friends but my mum has been persistent in her recommendation of the long song by Andrea Levy. I will eventually read it as I do really want to but I haven’t found space on my TBR.

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

There are a few that could fit this prompt but I think the book thief by Markus Zusak is the one that comes to mind. Again I will read it, I know it is a lot of people’s favourite book. I hope I see this as justified.

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

Again there are a few, I do want to read the rest of the flowers in the attic series or divergent. I’m not great at finishing a series so I have quite a few more.

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

A clockwork orange by Anthony Burgess is one I really want to read but I don’t know how I feel about the writing style.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

Well… I have a few. I think, according to booktube, the raven cycle by Maggie Stiefvater is a beloved series. Although, I’d hate to read it and not like it because I respect how valued it is. 😂

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

Ooh, this is a good one. I’d say Patrick Melrose by Edward St Aubyn. I’ve read maybe two of the books in this series and I will read on soon. I did really enjoy the tv series on sky during the days of a Benedict Cumberbatch binge.

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

I often see people recommending Or reviewing love from A to Z by S. K. Ali at the moment. I believe it came out this month (correct me if I’m wrong) and I can’t say I’m incredibly interested, I’ll see what people have to say first.

Right, that’s it. I tag anyone who wants to join in. I’ve enjoyed doing this and I might just do more tags in the future. Let me know if you do the ‘I should have read that book’ book tag I’d love to see what answers you give.
