The ‘I Should Have Read That Book’ Tag!

Emma @ The Terror of Knowing tagged me in the ‘I Should Have Read That Book’ Tag – thanks Emma! – so I’m here to do it today. This tag was originally created by Beth @ BooksNest.

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


Two of my friends, Natalie @ A Sea Change and my non-blogging friend Elena, have recommended Genevieve Cogman’s The Invisibly Library to me, so it’s about time I read it! I know the second book is either set in Venice or set in a place inspired by Venice; considering how much I love Italy I need to read it just so I can read that book.

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


I asked for a copy of The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett for Christmas and my parents very kindly got it for me. The only problem? I got it for Christmas 2010, so that book has been sat on my shelf for 8 years! I need to get to it.

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


I really enjoyed The Girl From Everywhere, and yet I still haven’t read The Ship Beyond Time. Considering this is a duology it’s about time I got around to it and finished the series.

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


The Three Musketeers just sounds like such a romp of an adventure, but I haven’t read it. In fact I don’t think I’ve read any French classics. I know Elena @ Elena Square Eyes recommends the audiobook, so I may try it that way!

A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read


A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I just don’t think Maas is for me! I know a lot of people say that the second book is way better, but I shouldn’t have to read one book just to read a better book, y’know?

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


I love the BBC adaptation of North and South but I still haven’t read the book by Elizabeth Gaskell. I do want to, though!

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


I love how much buzz Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree has been getting all over social media. I do have a copy, I just haven’t cracked it open yet but I’m hoping to read it very soon!

If you haven’t done this tag yet and you want to, consider yourself tagged! Which books have been waiting around to be read on your shelves? Let me know down below!

      I really want to read it soon because it sounds AMAZING, but it’s probably going to be a week or so before I crack it open…
