Thank you to Siobhan at Siobhan Novelties for tagging me! She mentioned Fahrenheit 451 as the classic book she wanted to read and I felt exactly like that last year when I picked it up – in short I got why it was a classic, but it was one of those types that no longer feel as original and revolutionary because I’ve read a bunch of books that likely has taken inspiration from it and then the ideas no longer feels that deep or impactful. I would definitely read it again though.

A book that a certain friend always tells you to read
I haven’t even watched the movie – I know, it’s bad.
A book that has been on your TBR forever, and yet you still haven’t picked it up
I don’t really know if I actually want to read “(Don’t you) forget about me by Kate Karyus Quinn anymore, but it’s been on my TBR so long that I now feel obliged to. It’s not got the best ratings 3.6, the blurb doesn’t excite me, I’ve read the first ten pages without much interest – I’m still hoping to have at least given it a fair try before the end of this year. If not I’m officially giving up.
A book in a series you have started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing
I really loved the original “Shatter me” series by Tahereh Mafi and because of the mixed and bad reviews of “Restore me” I keep putting off reading it myself.
A classic you have always liked the sound of, but never actually read
All of Virginia Woolf’s book (I’ve only read and loved A room of one’s own) and The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
A book you see all over Instagram, but haven’t picked up yet
I’m not much on bookstagram. But going by the internet in general – Circe by Madeline Miller! I get strangely uncomfortable by this cover, but the moment I realized it was based on mythology and so well loved (or hyped) I wanted to read it. Authors and reviewers has posted about it everywhere it seems like.
