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
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!
