The ‘I Should Have Read That Book’ Tag

First of all, I found this tag via @berriesandbooksblog! There are a lot of books that I still have yet to read. My TBR pile is huge and ever-growing just like every other book nerd. The tag was originally created by Beth over at Books Nest, It looked like a lot of fun. So, I decided to do it!

1. A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I actually do not have any bookish friend's in real life. Except, I just started getting my best friend to read. So, we will see if she continues to pick up books. Lately, they are only books that I have recommended to her. I will get recommendations from My Dad from time to time though.

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

There are way too many to list. One that I can think of is The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.

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

One of the main ones that I am dying to finish is The Wayward Children Series by Seanan McGuire. I have around two more books to read I think. This is such a magical and unique series. 

4. A classic you've always liked the sound of, but never actually read

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I love the concept and message behind this book. I just have read to read it. I really want to up my classic reading game this year.

5. A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

I have to read a lot more popular books but one I can think of is Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. This book has gotten some major hype.


6. A book that inspired a film/tv adaptation that you really love, but you just haven't read it yet

I pride myself on usually reading the book before seeing the movie. However, I love The Devil Wears Prada movie and have yet to read the book.

7. A book you see all over Instagram but haven't picked up yet

I see this book in a lot of places, not just Instagram... Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I really need to get to this book.

Well, there you have it! Another tag completed. What do you think of my answers from above? Feel free to do this tag even if I do not tag you below. Let me know if you do because I love to read other people's answers. 


  1. Oh, you should read Dorian Gray! And as for The Devil Wears Prada, I didn't like the way the book ended - it just fell flat for me, and strangely enough, the movie didn't fix that. So... no need to read the book, really.

    1. Thanks for the info. Yeah, I was never a huge fan of the movie ending either.

  2. I am visiting from the Blogger's Pit Stop. I will plan to publish my version of this post at by next week. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Oh, I could name a million books I SHOULD have read by now---if only I could have unlimited reading time!! I definitely want to read The Picture of Dorian Gray at some point too---I agree that the concept is so interesting!
