Hello everybody! I’ve got about a bazillion and a half book tags in my bookmarks bar right now, so I’ll probably be bringing you a tag a week for a bit. I don’t know why I still enjoy doing tag posts so much, but I just do. 🙂
I saw this one back in March on The Tin Kitchen, and since I’ve been going through a bit of an existential crisis regarding all of the books I will never get to read (*pauses for a round of sobbing*) I immediately connected with it and decided to save it for a rainy day. That rainy day never came, but I’m going with it anyway!
P.S. If you don’t follow Katie at The Tin Kitchen, I highly recommend you do, she has a great voice and always has thoughtful things to say.
A really hyped book that you’re not interested in reading
Guys, I’m sure that The Poppy War is just brilliant, but I have no intention of reading it. I’ve seen a lot of content warnings, and that’s just not for me most of the time. I’d rather cuddle up with something G-rated.
A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing
God, could I care less what happens to Celaena or Aelin or whatever she is calling herself now. On that note, I have no interest in the Court of Whatever and Whatever series either. Maas’s writing just doesn’t do it for me, and I’m not a fan of the never-ending-series. Three books is enough for me!
A classic you’re not interested in
Let’s see how many of my hate-this boxes Moby Dick checks, shall we?
- Hundreds of pages of no story
- Horrible and cruel whale hunting practices
- Hero worship of jerky white men
Only six? I’m sure there are more that I just don’t know about. No thanks!
A book on your shelf you’ll probably never actually read
My Reddit Book Exchange Santa this year sent me three books. One is a short story collection called Unpossible, and y’all, I just don’t know. I don’t usually do short stories, and they look really weird. I don’t usually enjoy weird… You could probably convince me to read it without too much difficulty, though!
I feel like I could go on about this. There are SO MANY MORE books that I don’t want to read! Wow, this sure is making me feel less bad about all the books I won’t get to read. By comparison it’s a lot fewer!
Also, who knew I would have such strong opinions about books I hadn’t even read?!
(I know, it’s not actually a surprise…)
