My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag

31 Mar

A tag today! Wasn’t tagged, but this one looks like a lot of fun, so I’m gonna do it!

1) What book have you been unable to finish?

Life, the Universe and Everything (Hitchhiker's Guide, #3)Life, The Universe, and Everything by Douglas Adams. The simple reason for this one is that I’m reading it out loud with my SO and we both need to be free and in the mood to read it. We’re about half way through. We’ll get there. Eventually.

 

What book have you yet to read because…

2) …you just haven’t had the time?

Leviathan Wakes (Expanse, #1)Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey. I’m currently reading it. Have been for a couple months now. This semester has been slowing down my reading majorly, man. It’s awful.

 

 

3) …it’s a sequel?

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas. One, I don’t own it – need to borrow it from the library. Two – it’s the last book in the series that’s currently out. I don’t want to have to wait. 😦 So I’m waiting now with the knowledge that I don’t have to if I don’t want to. Does that make sense? I think it does.

 

 

4) …it’s brand new?

China DollsChina Dolls by Lisa See. I really like her writing and the settings of her books. Just haven’t gotten to this one yet – just got it in my latest haul. :”D I suppose any of the books from that haul would qualify for this question, but this is the one that’s sticking out the most.

 

 

5) …you read a book by the same author and didn’t enjoy it?

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I read Shiver a while ago and really didn’t care for it. I’ve heard this one is better but I don’t knooooow man. I’m still hesitant.

 

 

6) …you’re just not in the mood for it?

The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the MindThe Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku. This is a non-fiction speculative science book. While I love watching this stuff on tv, reading it is a bit more difficult for me. I’m definitely a fiction person and reading nonfiction requires a very specific mood from me. I’ll get there eventually. xD

 

 

7) …it’s humongous?

1Q84 (1Q84, #1-3)1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. This book is a brick. I really want to read it, I feel like I’ll love it, but I just. can’t. bring myself to do it because I know that would involve carrying that chunker around me with to classes. Maybe during summer break.

 

 

8) …because it was a cover buy that turned out to have poor reviews?

I don’t have an answer for this one, honestly. If I get a book and then decide I likely won’t like it due to reviews or whatever reason, I tend to just get rid of it. Unhauls FTW.

9) What is the most intimidating book in your TBR pile?

Notre-Dame de ParisNotre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. This is the original version of Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and let me tell you, this version is dark, man. It’s not super long, but from what I’ve heard the writing is dense and slow-going. So I’ll get to it eventually. It’ll have to be one of those ‘disappear for a week’ things, but it’ll happen.

 

 

10) Who do you tag?

Ace, Panda, Orang-utan Librarian and Shivii. DO IT.

    Ahh I was the same about Raven Boys- it’s much better than shiver though. And I get you about Queen of Shadows- I’m always like that with sequels. Thanks so much for the tag!! Looks like fun 😀

    Omg! Raven Boys is really good. Def read it. I’ve heard others say they didn’t like the Shiver seriees too. I haven’t read it but Raven Boys is pretty good. The beginning is slow though so that sometimes turn people off.

      I’m okay with slow beginnings, as long as it’s not a slow ending too. xD
