Books I’ll Probably Never Read Tag

Hey guys, I thought I’d come back at you with another tag. Today’s tag is about the books I don’t plan on reading. I’m unaware of the creator, but of course credit goes to him or her.

I tag:

Let’s begin.


1) A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?

Image result for the city of brass

Even though I love fantasy books, this one just seems too dense and historical for my liking. I wouldn’t completely rule it out, but as of right now I have no plans on reading it.


2) A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?

I was a little underwhelmed by the Giver, but still enjoyed it. However, Gathering Blue was tough to get into so I don’t see myself completing the quartet


3) A classic that you’re just not interested in?

Image result for Huckleberry Finn

Unfortunately, I know that this is going to be required reading for me eventually. However, otherwise I would NEVER see myself picking this one up in my spare time.


4) Any genres you never read?

Actually, I wouldn’t say there are no horror books I’d never read, but I also will probably never pick any legit horror novels up except maybe It by Stephen King.


5) A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?

Any book I purchase or receive is a book I’m genuinely interested in reading. However, my dad handed me down copies of A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door, and while I enjoyed AWIT, I don’t really want to read the sequel. He handed these copies down to me anyways, so I don’t feel terrible not reading it.

Friday 56 #9

Hey guys, today I will be sharing with you all another weekly meme. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but let’s get started.

I first saw it here: https://insidemyminds.com/2016/06/03/friday-56-3-2/

It was created by Freda at Freda’s Voice.

Here are the rules:

-Grab a book, any book.
-Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.
-Find any sentence(you can choose a few but don’t spoil anything in the book though)
-Post it.
-Add your (url) post in the original post’s Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.

Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hey guys, here is another tag for you all. I tag anyone who wants to participate. Credit goes to the owner, who for whatever reason I can’t find right now;( I’ve also seen many different versions of this tag, so I just chose the questions I liked the most. Anyways, let’s start!


Greed: What is your most expensive book?

Image result for percy jackson greek gods

This is probably my most expensive book, and if not it is one of the Harry Potter books.


Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Image result for the graveyard bookImage result for coraline

Now, I don’t think there is any author with an actual love-hate relationship, but Neil Gaiman comes the closest. I liked The Graveyard Book, and didn’t like Coraline at all to be honest.


Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?

Image result for flying solo book

I’ve read this book countless amounts of times, and have loved it every read.


Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

Image result for a court of mist and fury

I know I’ll love it, but it just has so many pages and is a big commitment ahha.


Pride: What book do you talk about in order to sound like an intelligent reader?

Image result for night elie wiesel

Don’t really ever do this, but I guess I am proud that I read this one for sure.


Lust: What book has a relationship you feel is based more on lust than love?

Image result for unleashed sophie jordan

I found that the new relationship in this book was too soon to really be based on love, and the love interest was such a jerk that I thought there was no way that Davy could’ve actually loved him.


Envy: What book would you like to receive as a gift?

32320661

This looks incredible and after having read tons of contemporary in a row, I would love to read a great debut fantasy novel. I mean come on–this sounds fantastic!

Worth It Wednesday #7

hey guys, i’m back for another worth it wednesday post. if you didn’t know, this is a series of posts i created to give some love to books that deserve their hype. anyways, here is my pick for this week;)


Image result for a list of cages

This books got a lot of buzz when it was first released, and for good reasons. This surpassed my expectations, leaving me emotional and emotionally attached to the two main characters. I think this is a book everyone should read in their life time.

WWW Wednesday #2

Hey guys, today I thought I’d do another WWW Wednesday. I did this theme a few months ago, and never continued it. However, I wanted to give it another try. If you didn’t know these posts feature the books you just read, are currently reading, and plan to read next. As always, credit is due where credit is due, so the creator of this tag is linked directly below:

The creator

Let’s begin!


WHAT BOOK(S) ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

I’m halfway through this one and really enjoying it. I’m interested to see how it comes together, and I hope to watch the movie afterwards.


WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU JUST COMPLETED?

Image result for simon vs the homosapien agenda

I just finished, and LOVED, this one. It was fantastic and I read it in two sittings. Loved the characters, the plot, and I can’t wait for the sequel and the upcoming companion novel.


WHAT BOOK DO YOU PLAN ON READING NEXT?

Image result for before i let go

While I am technically reading this for the Booksplosion read-a-long, I’m also genuinely interested in reading it because I loved Marieke’s other book (This is Where it Ends) so much. While the Goodreads ratings are generally (and surprisingly) low, I read the first two pages and am already hooked. I think this could be a favorite of the year.
