Where The Wolves Read

A blog where I review mostly books. I also review, if my appetite allows, movies, music, and video games. Enjoy the feast!

Most Intimidating Books Tag

Original Creator: The links I've been finding don't work so I'm not sure who the original creator of this tag is. :(

1. Name a book on your TBR that you haven't been able to finish:

There isn't a specific reason for this. I tried to read it years ago, and I never actually finished it. I'm going to try again, but this was the first book I could think of.

2. A book you haven't had the time to read:

I got the first 3 books in this series fairly recently and they can all fall under this question. I work at an academic library, so trying to find time to read books like this during the school year is hard. I've been trying to collect them so I can marathon (maybe?) the series when summer break starts. We'll see.

3. Name a book you haven't read because it's a sequel:

I read all the way up to this book and then I stopped because I know book 9 is still being written. I didn't want to be caught up with another series just to wait an eternity for the next book. *cough* GoT *cough*

4. Name a book you haven't read because it's brand new:

I got this in the January Owl Crate, and I just haven't gotten around to reading it. I love retellings, but I haven't read a retelling of Phantom of the Opera. I'm going to read this soon because I'm really stinking excited for it.

5. Name a book on your TBR by an author you've read previously and you didn't like their book:

I've had Icons for awhile and I just haven't gotten to it. This might be cheating, but I enjoyed the Beautiful Creatures series a lot. Then Margie came out with this book, then Black Widow: Forever Red. I read Black Widow already and I wasn't super impressed. It just didn't wow me the way I was hoping it would. I might give it another go later and read the sequel, but we'll see. I DO need to read Icons and Idols though since I have both of them.

6. Name a book on your TBR pile that you're not in the mood to read:

I read the first book in this series and I really liked it, but I didn't have the other books. Now, I have all of them and I'm just not in the mood to read them. I'm going to check out the audio version of Furies of Calderon to see if that'll help me get back into the world a bit.

7. Name a book on your TBR pile you haven't read because it's huge:

Sanderson, why do you write such massive books? Jeebus

8. Name a book on your TBR that you bought because of the cover, but it has also gotten bad reviews:

I read Hush Hush and I wasn't a fan. I saw a copy of Black Ice on Book Outlet hecka cheap, so I picked it up. I want to believe Becca can do a really good job with a book. I've also heard a lot of negative things about this book, so we'll see.

9. Name the book on your TBR pile that you find the most intimidating:

This book is massive, and literary fiction can be hard for me to get through. I've heard it's excellent though and I want to expand my reading tastes. Wish me luck.
