Books I WANT to read, but don’t want to READ tag📚

Hello everyone!!!

How are we all this week? It’s officially back to school season and this is the first year IN MY LIFE that I am not started school/ University.

I’m officially an adult and I do not know what to do with myself…help 😂

So today I am doing the “Books I WANT to read, but don’t want to READ tag”, I seen this on Caro’s site The BookCheshireCat and was interested straight away. So this tag prompts you to talk about the books you have on your shelf that you are dying to read…but never do. You know the kind you run out and buy as soon as it’s released and then three years later it’s still on your TBR? Yeah those 😂

The Rules:

  • Link back to the original tag (this post, and Jami!)
  • Complete the questions with books you want to have read but don’t want to read
  • Tag some people at the end to do the tag next

The Tag!

1. A book that you feel you need to read because everyone talks about it:

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

18335634. sy475

I read the first two books of this series about 2 years ago, and I really liked it, but I just never felt the pull to go and pick up Clockwork Princess.

And now when I do think about it, i’m put off because I would have to read the first two in the series again to know what was going on in this. Its a vicious circle!

2. A book that’s really long:

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith


I have loved every book in this series and I am genuinely really looking forward to reading this part of the story, BUT its so big and the edition I have is hardback so it feels even bigger 😔

I know when I do get round to reading it I will adore it but, until then, there it sits on my shelf collecting dust.

3. A book you’ve owned/ had on your TBR for too long:

The Northern Lights but Phillip Pullman


I have had this book since the dawn of time…literally I think I have owned it for 7+ years. I have started this book on so many occasions but just haven’t had the energy or want to finish it. This is one of the books that I am refusing to unhaul BUT at the same time I don’t know if I will ever read it.

4. A book that is ‘required’ reading (e.g. school text, popular classic, something you feel like you should have read):

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte


I want to read this, I really do and I have only ever heard good things about it BUT I just never take the plunge and actually lift it up to read. Do you ever do that with a book? I am almost sure I will love this book (I really enjoyed the movie), I think I just need the motivation to finally pick it up and commit.

5. A book that intimidates you:

The Impressionist by Hari Kunzru

114451. sy475

My Uncle gave and recommended this book to me at least 5 years ago now. He said it was one of the best, most profound books he has ever read…yet I still haven’t picked it up to read. I think I feel as though I am not ready to fully appreciate this book? If that’s even a thing, but I am hopeful I will get to it in the future.

6. A book that you think might be slow:

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli


I know I know I know.

I just think it might be slow for my liking.

7. A book you need to be in the right mood for:

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas


Now if you know me at all you’ll know I adore the Throne of Glass series and I mean ADORE. I personally cannot believe I haven’t picked this up yet but as the question prompts, I just need to be in the right mood for it and I know I am just not ready to let this series end. I don’t know when I will be, but I will love this book.

8. A book you are unsure if you will like:

Lord of the Flies by William Golding


This book has been on my radar for ages and I have picked it up numerous times from the library, however, I still haven’t actually picked it up with the intention of reading it. I think I just need to accept the fact that I don’t really want to read it and move on.

Well there we go, that was interesting……I think I need to unhaul Lord of the flies definitely and maybe some others 😱

If you guys think I should read any of these ASAP, please let me know in the comments below!
Happy reading guys,

  1. I have had a book that I was unsure of that I got as a gift. It wasn’t really my genre of book so I delayed reading it. Finally I dug in and I actually loved it!

    Liked by 1 person

  2. What a fun prompt. I can so relate to the hesitation to pick up a later book in a series because I would have to read the first books again. Rothfuss did that to me with his King Killer series. Probably not gonna happen.
