Classics I Vowed to Read But Probably Won’t…

I think a lot of us have a list of classic novels that we plan on reading… at some point. I’ve been telling myself I’m going to to make more of an effort to read more classics and then I never actually do. So, today is the day for me to go over some of the classics on my TBR and ask myself: ‘Am I really going to read this?’

And after a lazy search through my TBR, here are some of the classics that I’ve finally come to realise that I just won’t read:

Reviewing Goodreads’ ‘Best Book Boyfriends’ List (with BTS reaction gifs for absolutely no reason)

Have you ever been working on a book tag where one of the questions is ‘Who is your book boyfriend?’ I’ve just completed a tag that asked a similar question and it got me thinking about the most popular book boyfriends. And so I took to Goodreads to find out. I remembered seeing a popular list on there years ago and I found the one I was thinking of. And it’s a bit depressing to read, and it’s really outdated (I mean it was made over seven years ago so idk what I expected.)

I’m going to explore this list, and share my thoughts on the book boyfriends I’m familiar with. The cut off will be 20 books because this is a HUGE list (it has over 8,300 entries!). If you’re curious, here’s a link to the list.

My Mixed Feelings on My Old Book Ratings

I’ve written a few posts lately that have required me to reflect on all the books I’ve read and rated online, and there’s a topic I want to talk to you all about related to this because it irritates me every time I think about it. And that topic is about old book ratings, and whether you’d consider updating your book ratings and reviews or not.

Down the TBR Hole – Revisiting the First 10 Posts (#1 – #100)

I’m back to doing the Down the TBR Hole tag (created by Lost In a Story) because I’m running out of ideas once again! Standalone Sunday is on hiatus simply because I don’t have many standalones to talk about right now… So here I am with this tag. But before I move on to the rest of my Goodreads TBR list, I wanted to briefly run through the books that have already featured in this tag to see if there are any more I can remove before I move on with my list.

So, out of the 100 books I’ve looked through in this tag so far, 58 of them remain on my TBR. And now I’m going to revisit these books and see if I’ve changed my mind about keeping any of them.

Also the layout of this post will be a little different purely because of my laziness. Enjoy!

Not-so-Recent YA Endings I’m Forever Unsatisfied With

It’s always such a shame when a book or a series ends and you’re left feeling really underwhelmed by it. In my experience, an unsatisfactory ending can ruin the book for me. Endings that make no sense, characters go OOC or don’t get the ending they deserve, a ship you hate ends up together… Whatever reason, I think a disappointing ending to a book has the ability to ruin the whole book for you.

Looking through all the YA books I’ve read in the past, I noticed a few reads whose endings still have me feeling a little sad. And on that note, here are some of my YA reads that left me wishing for a different outcome:

Also, this post shows just how little YA I read nowadays (and how much I read in 2012/2013), and I’m sorry!
