Hello, fellow readers and writers! I hope you are all well during these crazy times.
Ever wondered if you have any books you should pick up in the next while, after you’re done reading your current reads? Today, I’m participating in the“I Should Have Read That” Book Tag, which explores those types of questions! I found this book tag on theterrorofknowing’s blog post, and I was interested in trying it out, so…why not?
Here are the questions and my answers!
1. A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
I feel like I’m the certain friend telling people to read this or that book, rather than the other way around. Because of this, I don’t have an answer for this question other than “None.” Sorry!
2. A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
“Black” from “The Circle” series by Ted Dekker.
This book has been on my reading list for years, and I still haven’t started it as of writing this post. If my reading lists posted prior to this post coming up show otherwise, then I have FINALLY read the book. If not, assume I still haven’t read it.
3. A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
I haven’t not finished a book in a series that I’ve started, as of this time. If I haven’t finished that book, either I 1. haven’t started the book yet, or 2. I eventually decided to scrap the whole series as is, like I did with Rachel Caine’s “Great Library” series.
4. A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
“Farenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury.
It sounds eerily similar to George Orwell’s “1984,” but with a heavier emphasis on books. I haven’t read it yet, but I hope to do so in the near future.
5. A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin.
I’ve already stated that I won’t be reading or watching this series in a previous Book Tag, but it’s not surprising that it seems like everyone but me has read it. It’s wildly popular, but I also wonder if the actual book series will be finished.
6. A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
“The Princess Bride” by William Goldman.
I LOVE the movie. It was one of my favourites, growing up. However, I’ve never read the book it was based on. Hopefully that will change once I find a copy of the book!
7. A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
“Cinderella Is Dead” by Kalynn Bayron.
As someone who has read retellings of the Cinderella fairytale before, I am somewhat interested in picking this one up. At the time of writing this post, however, I’m fatigued from all the fairytale retellings that I’ve read so far, so I might not pick this one up too soon.
Those are my answers for the “I Should Have Read That” Book Tag! I tag anyone who is interested in participating in this tag to try it out. Maybe you’ll find out what you want to read next, from trying to answer this tag’s questions!
Do you feel like you have books that you should have read sooner, or need to pick up soon? Let me know in the comments!

I’ve added some more to my list thanks to this post 🙂
Yay! I’m glad to hear that. I hope you enjoy reading those books!
The Princess Bride is a must-read. I read this one aloud to my kids last year and I was crying laughing through some parts of it that weren’t in the film. Also, I clicked over to see why you wouldn’t read Game of Thrones since I’m a huge fan and saw you read Wings of Fire. My daughter read the series, then we’ve been rereading it aloud together. Those are great books, I love the personality Tui Sutherland puts into her characters.
I definitely have plans to try to read a copy of The Princess Bride as soon as I can! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed reading it.
I also do enjoy the books I’ve read in the Wings of Fire series so far despite all the deaths, especially for the characters. I hope to pick up more copies of the series and continue reading it soon.
Wow, I don’t feel so left out! I haven’t read Game of Thrones either. But I would be interested in reading the Princess Bride. I’ve heard good things about it but just haven’t decided to pick it up yet.
