The Books I Want To Read Tag

hey! I love doing book tags, and I found this on Golden Books Girl blog. It looked really interesting so I wanted to give it a go.


  1. Link back to the original tag
  2. Complete the questions with books you want to have read but don’t want to read
  3. Tag some people at the end to do the tag next

Question One: A Book You Feel the Need to Read Because Everyone Talks About it

At the moment, that’s pretty much everything but I suppose I should go with The Priory of the Orange Tree. I own it, but it’s massive. Massive books tend to put me off a bit but it sounds genuinely interesting so, at some point, I want to give it a go. Also, it’s beautiful.

Question Two: A Book That’s Really Long 

Refer to question one! But maybe the Game of Thrones series, which I hope to be starting too, those are quite long. I don’t really buy big books often because, as I said, they usually put me off and I never end up reading them.

Question Three: A Book You’ve Had on Your Bookshelf or TBR List for Far Too Long 

Probably House of Leaves by Mark. Z. Danielewski which is a shame because it looks so interesting but, again, it’s huge and it’s also really complex to read. I know that’s the point of the book, but it just makes it so difficult to get into and I don’t want to give up on it because I think I’d really like it but it’s not going to be read anytime soon.

Question Four: A Book That is “Required Reading” (e.g, a school text or popular classic, a book you feel obligated to read) 

I own a lot of classics because I genuinely do want to read them, and partly because I want to understand the references. The two I want to get to the most, though, are Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. I also want to read What Katy Did, but I don’t own that yet.

Question Five: A Book That Intimidates You

I feel like the questions above already answered this question because classics that are difficult to read with my autistic language difficulties and big books are all things I find intimidating and are going to be a challenge to get through. For the sake of picking something I haven’t already said, though, I’d go for The Miseducation of Cameron Post. I’m not sure why I find it imtimidating, but I’m a bit scared to pick that one up.

Question Six: A Book You Think May be Slow 

I own a few of the early Discworld novels and I feel like they’ll be slow to get through because of the fact that a lot of them are mostly just world building, which I always find a bit of a drag and one of the many reasons I still haven’t picked up Lord of the Rings yet (despite owning multiple copies)

Question Seven: A Book That You Need to be In the Right Mood For 

I recently acquired Daisy and the Six. After reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, i feel like i might have to mentally prepare myself a little bit for that one so absolutely something I need to be in the mood for.

Question Eight: A Book You’re Unsure You’ll Like 

Hmm. I’m not too sure on this one. Most of the books I buy, I’m obviously pretty sure I’ll like them because otherwise I wouldn’t spend money on them but maybe Curse of the Dark and Lonely. I’ve been a bit worried about starting it because I love Beauty and the Beast but I’m just not sure.


I have no blogger book friends to tag so if you want to do it, then go for it!

  1. I definitely think that The Lord of The Rings will be slow. I have all the copies as well, and have even seen all of the (slow) movies, but still haven’t brought myself to actually pick up one and read. Great answers!
