I have no idea who created this, but it’s been going around for a long time. I’m going to be using strictly books that I own and have not read. But since I currently own like 80 of those, it shouldn’t be a problem.
1. A book on your TBR pile you haven’t finished
Oh boy. I have so many for this. But I’m gonna go with The Bat by Jo Nesbo because it’s been almost a year since I started reading it. It’s not that I dislike it, but it hasn’t hooked me like a thriller ought to and I just never got around to finishing it.
2. A book you just haven’t had the time to read
I’ll go with The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson for this one. It’s so big and I’m afraid it’ll suck me in like the first one and keep me up until 3 am and I just can’t afford to lose that much sleep at the moment.
3. A book you haven’t read because it’s a sequel
Spiders by Tom Hoyle. I didn’t realise that this was the second book in the series when I bought (it was an impulse cover buy, tbh) and now I don’t really feel so drawn to the series that I want to buy the first one.
4. A book you haven’t read because it’s brand new
I actually don’t have an answer for this. So I’ll go with a book that I haven’t read because I just acquired it. Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer. This book literally entered my possession like 3 hours ago so…
5. A book by and author you read previously but didn’t really like
Any of the Left behind books by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins. I read the first two and about half of the third book and I just didn’t really enjoy them. I own the first like 10 books in the series, but I just don’t feel drawn to them.
6. A book on your TBR pile that your just not in the mood to read
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I’m just not really in the mood for historical fiction.
7. A book on your TBR pile that you haven’t read because it’s enormous
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. I’ve read about 400 pages of this book and it just seems to be stretching out forever. It’s not really that I don’t like it, but I just don’t feel like reading it. I don’t care very much about the new characters and I don’t know… I just don’t feel like reading the other 200 pages. If it had been shorter, I’d have finished it.
8. A book on your TBR you bought because of the cover
The only one I have for this is Siders by Tom Hoyle. I hate giving repeat answers, but I got nothing else.
9. The book on your TBR you find the most intimidating
The Odyssey by Homer. Because I just know that it’s going to be hard for me to follow, even though I do want to read it.
