A Cascade Of Books did this a while ago, and since my TBR will not run out as long as I live, I thought, why not?
A book that a certain friend is always asking you to read.
Hmm… I don’t have IRL friends who really read. I was recently rec’d To Night Owl From Dogfish by someone on twitter. It’s a gay dad Parent Trap.
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up.
All Of Them? According to Goodreads, it’s The Count Of Monte Cristo, the 1276 page prison escape. Yay.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet.
I liked The Black Tides Of Heaven, but even with the short lengths, I haven’t finished the series. I don’t think I knew it was a series until recently, and it’s a bit too late to go back to the library.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
Hmm, classics are a hit or miss with me, and I’ve read Carmilla and Dorian Gray, so I feel mostly set. I have yet to read Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Nights Dream, and that’s supposed to be the gayest Shakespeare. The only Shakespeares I have read are R&J, Hamlet, and The Tempest. I actually went as Hamlet for Halloween in 2017, but I despise R&J. I don’t really have strong feelings for The Tempest, so Shakespeare is sitting at zero velocity.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read.
Um, 6 Of Crows, Cinder, any YA sci-fi/fantasy that is not Strange The Dreamer. But I don’t really have much interest in SFF right now. A popular book that I actually want to read is The Secret History. I love dark academia! I loved Bunny and If We Were Villains! W H Y haven’t I read this?
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet.
Let me scroll… nope, read, read, plague meme, Wizard Of Oz puzzle (read the book), looks triggering, no, never seen before, cat, drag, read,
Ok! This pic has Scythe on a bookshelf with many other books, but it counts! The Scythe series is really popular but i’ve never read it. It is something I’m interested in.
Update: My cat has a growth on his lungs that’s slowly killing him. I have posts scheduled through mid-may but after that, I might be quiet for a while. If you’d like to help with pain and appetite meds, we have a Ko-Fi
note: My cat has since died.
