There are so many books that I have not read, but it seems as though everyone else has. I want to talk about a few of them today because I would love to know your opinion on them! There are a few listed here that I know I will read, a few I am on the fence about, and a few I do not think I will ever pick up but I could be convinced otherwise!
Bear and the Nightingale
There is no debate about this one! I will be reading it! I just had to mention it because it is the book that inspired this post. I have been seeing it everywhere lately, and it was on so many favourite books of the year lists. I know I am going to love it, I just need to get my hands on a copy!
The Court of Thorns and Roses
There are so many mixed opinions about this series, and I know a lot of people didn’t like this book but loved the second one. I am not sure if I want to suffer through this long book just to get to the good one! I have heard there are a lot of problematic elements as well so I just do not know!
This is one of those books that I feel like I should have read when I was younger, and now I am not sure if I would enjoy it as much as an adult. When I look at my Goodreads friends’ reviews (pretty much every friend has reviewed this book!) there seems to be mixed opinions on it.
Lord of the Flies
If I am honest with myself, I will never read Lord of the Flies. It was never required reading for school and the subject matter does not appeal to me. I do feel like I am one of the few people who has never read it and, therefore, miss out on some of the discussions that are had about it.
I really enjoy historical fiction and time travel. You would think that this book would be in my wheelhouse but I think the size of it intimidates me! I enjoyed the first season of the show, but I am not sure if it appeals to me enough to the point of making me want to pick up the books. Are the books better than the TV show?
A Wrinkle in Time
Now that this book is being made in the a movie, I know that I have to read it. I am ashamed to admit that I have no idea what this book is even about! It is another book that I never read as a kid, and therefore feel like some of the magic of it will be lost on me!
Thirteen Reasons Why
Everyone was talking about this book a few years ago and I just never picked it up. Once the show came out, I thought that I would finally read it but then I heard some not so great things about the TV show so I have been avoiding it. I enjoy reading books that tackle heavy topics if they do it right. I really am so curious to know what people think about this one!
Six of Crows
I really loved Wonder Woman: Warbringer, so I know that I enjoy Leigh Bardugo’s writing. I think I have been avoiding this book for the fear that it is overhyped. I also read Shadow and Bone years ago and just thought it was okay. Should I finish that series first before moving on to Six of Crows?
When Dimple Met Rishi
I felt like this book has a lot of potential, but the reviews that I have read lately have not been great. I really do not think I will ever read this book, especially since it takes a lot for me to read YA contemporary. I am hopeful about From Twinkle, With Love.
So please let know your opinions on any and all of these books! I am so curious what everyone thinks about them and whether or not they are worth reading!
