Hello friends! Welcome to a new little blog-post series where I will briefly talk about 5 popular books that I haven’t read.
Some of these posts in the future will have books that I’ve yet to read, and some will list books that I don’t intend to read.
Here are the 5 books that inspired the first part of my Popular Books I Haven’t Read series.
An Ember in the Ashes (#1) by Sabaa Tahir
Here’s the dealio with this one, I started reading it, and then I put in back on my shelf and quite literally forgot about it. I haven’t picked it up since. I really want to finish the story, but my mind keeps on telling me “No! There are too many points of view in the book to fully enjoy it!” And my heart goes “You may have a point, but it is a book, and we have it on our shelves. It is our duty to read it!” And here I am, saying that I haven’t finished reading it, yet I keep on forgetting that I even own my darn copy.
I started to read An Ember in the Ashes, I think I got about…75/100 pages in. And then I decided to go on ahead and mark the pages where the points of view change. I marked about half of the book before I decided was enough was enough. I put An Ember in the Ashes back on the shelf and haven
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
I know, I know… Dumplin’ has been out for quite a while and I still haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Dumplin’ is even out as a movie (or is it a small series) on Netflix. I’m going to try and read Dumplin’ maybe this year, because I want to see what all the hubbub has been about. Though I do know that Dumplin’ is about fat positivity.
The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Even though I have The Sun Is Also a Star, I haven’t gotten around to reading the book. I really want to, though! I’ll have to put in on one of my monthly TBR’s one of these months so I can finally get around to reading it. — I truly don’t know what to expect in The Sun Is Also a Star, so I’m kind of excited.
Children of Blood and Bone (#1) by Tomi Adeyemi
Children of Blood and Bone is a book that I’ve wanted to read ever since the book exploded on social media. Everyone says great things about the story and what happens and especially the representation, so I’m quite looking forward to this one.
Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Crooked Kingdom is the sequel to Six of Crows and I’ve got to say that….I’m not ready for this duology to end. That’s the only reason why I haven’t started reading Crooked Kingdom yet. A side note, I read some pretty major spoilers and I don’t want to read the anguish that the characters go through, so I’m holding off on reading CK for as long as possible.
Are there any popular books that you haven’t read yet?
Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
