Hello people. It«s saturday, which means it’s time for another book tag. This time I’m doing My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag, and I was tagged by the awesome Keira @Signing On, go check out her tag and blog.
What book have you been unable to finish?
I’ve been unable to finish The Iliad by Homer, so far, but I fully intend to try again. I started reading the portuguese translation a long time again, and at the time I wasn’t sleeping enough and I had a long train ride, and somehow the book put me to sleep every single day. I love mythology and I think one of the issues for me it’s that the translation is in prose instead of poem… like most of them. I don’t get why that is…
What book have you yet to read because you just haven’t had the time?
One of the books I’ve been meaning to read but haven’t been able to find the time is Night Owls or The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett. I do want to read it, bad, but time, oh time…
(this book is also one the most gorgeous books I own)
What book have you yet to read because it is a sequel?
I don’t know if I quite get the question, but ok. So, I need to finally read A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) by George R.R. Martin, eventually… some day. Soon. I really loved book 1 and book 2, though that one was a little harder to get through. Why are all the sames so similar?
What book have you yet to read because it is brand new?
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now, but I still haven’t been able to get to it.
Soon, I promise.
What book have you yet to read because you read a book by the same author and didn’t enjoy it?
Probably The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy The Maze Runner, it’s just that it didn’t made me pick up the second book, even though it was right there, sitting on my shelf…
What book have you yet to read because you’re just not in the mood for it?
Another one that has been sitting on my shelf for a long long time… Inferno by Dan Brown. I do want to read it before the movie comes out though, so I guess I should consider doing it sooner rather than later.
What book have you yet to read because it is humongous?
For this one I clearly have to say the biggest book on my shelf, and that is Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. This one I doubt that I’ll get to anytime soon. In truth, I’m not sure if it will ever happen.
What book Have you yet to read because it was a cover buy that turned out to have poor reviews?
Hmmm, so I bought Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs not only because the cover and the book itself is interesting and beautiful, but because I saw a couple of good reviews. Then I started to read not so stellar reviews and now I’m pretty sure that the book is not really my thing.
What is the most intimidating book in your TBR pile?
Probably Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I love the show, LOVE IT, and I’m 100% sure that I’ll love the book. However, this book is huge and I’m scared of it. Scared!
And this is even though I own the digital version…
Everyone who wants to do this tag 😀 !
