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.
- Link back to the original tag
- Complete the questions with books you want to have read but don’t want to read
- 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!
