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:
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 And it’s a bit depressing to read, and it’s really outdated (I mean it was made over seven years ago so idk what I expected.)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.
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.
I feel awful when I publish a post and people take the time to comment and then I don’t respond for a few days. I fear it makes me look unappreciative of receiving comments. Of course, I do respond eventually, but I really need the time away from my blog after a new post goes up and I just wanted to write about why that is.
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!
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!
I swear I blinked and February was over… I hate when the month’s suddenly over and you feel like you’ve achieved nothing for that month. Anyways, this is my wrap-up post for February. I imagine it’s gonna be a short one…
I love a good sports romance (even though I’m not very sporty…), but I have to admit that the majority of sports romance novels I’ve read have had the hero as the sports player. But now I’m aiming to read more romances where the heroine plays sports, and so here is a quick list of romances currently on my TBR that have that!
I was working on other blog posts, and I had the random thought of ‘Is there a book tag about New Adult fiction?‘ and sure enough, there is! I’m afraid I haven’t found the source of this tag, but I discovered it on MariesLibrary, who kindly translated the questions into English, since the origin of this tag is from a French blog.
It’s time for another Standalone Sunday! Standalone Sunday is a tag created by Megan @bookslayerReads, where you choose a standalone novel you’ve enjoyed and want your fellow bloggers to know about. My standalone novel this Sunday is…
