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

Saving Beck by Courtney Cole

Honestly, not many of my friends have been pushing books on me. So I thought I’d throw out an honorable mention to Rae from the Thrifty Bibliophile, whose discussion of Saving Beck has given this book a front row seat on my TBR.

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

Asking For It by Louise O’Neill

This is officially the oldest book on my TBR. The biggest miracle is that I’ve remained interested in reading Asking For It for five years. I actually did pick up a copy recently, so I really want to read this one soon.

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

All the Wrong Questions Series by Lemony Snicket

It’s likely that I will never finish this series. I read the first book in this series and purchased the second, but I never got any further. I still love Lemony Snicket, but this series probably isn’t for me. I’d prefer to reread a Series of Unfortunate Events instead.

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

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I never had to read this classic for school. I usually am not a fan of classic literature, but Lord of the Flies sounds very interesting. It’s not on the top of my priority list, but I would like to pick this book up someday. Maybe it can have a place on my retirement reading list.

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Everyone and their mother has been talking about this book! The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is very different from my usual reading habits (me, read a historical fiction book?) but I hear that even people who don’t usually read this type of book have loved it. I don’t know if I’ll get to this book anytime soon, but I plan to pick it up eventually.

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

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I’ve seen the Netflix film for this movie but have never read the book. Honestly I don’t know if I have much interest in reading this one myself. The internet seems to have plenty of things to say about the characters that I may be better off not knowing by sticking with the movies.

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

I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman

This vibrant color has been all over Bookstagram lately! I actually have a copy of I Was Born for This that I received for Christmas that I plan on getting to very soon. I also have a copy of Alice Oseman’s Solitaire that I need to pick up.


What a fun tag! I feel so inspired to pick up some of these books and take down my TBR.

Honestly I’m not quite sure who to tag for this one, but if you’ve been looking for a tag to do, take this as your sign!

Until next time!

  1. Great answers! The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is one that everyone and their mother has read at this point and I’m really looking forward to. And you’ve definitely got to read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The book is even better than the movie, at least I think it is. There is so much more details in the book

    1. Ooh you might have me convinced! I’ve heard that Peter makes even more questionable decisions in the book and I think that’s what’s tuned me away towards them in the first place 🤔 But maybe it’s time that I give the series a try!
