Books I Want to Read But Dont Want to Read Tag

Hi everyone! Another book tag today and I’m really excited about it because I just love talking about my book anxiety *inserts extreme sarcasm here*… but no seriously, I’m not ashamed of sharing my list of books I’m probably never going to read… but I want to! Let’s just get right into the tag.


A Book You Feel You Need To Read Because Everyone Talks About It

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Simonverse, #1)

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

Honestly, the whole series applies to this question but mainly this first book. I bought this book about 2 years ago and I read 5 pages and had to ask myself the question: “Do I even really want to read this, or am I reading it just because everyone else has?” I then decided that I only really picked it up because of the hype and wasn’t actually interested in it.

A Book That’s Really Long

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) – J.K. Rowling

UGH! I want to continue on with the series so bad but, 870 pages?! I just find it absolutely ridiculous. Just the audiobook alone is 27 hours. My god! I really want to continue on, but should I even bother? I don’t know. I am still deciding on whether I’ll take the plunge and try and finish this series.

A Book You’ve Owned/Had on Your TBR For Too Long

Love & Luck (Love & Gelato, #2)

Love & Luck (Love & Gelato #2) – Jenna Evans Welch

I really want to read this book, but I don’t want it to ruin the first book’s experience I had. I have high hopes for this series, even though I don’t see it get too much hype. I DO want to read this, I swear… it’s just taking so much strength for me to take the plunge.

A Book That Is ‘Required’ Reading

Lord of the Flies

Lord of The Flies – William Golding

Yes, technically I have in fact read this. Honestly, while read this in high school, I kind of just skimmed the book and didn’t actually really pay attention when reading it. I would love to read it again, but I have been definitely putting it off. Hopefully I can get to it this week at some point.

A Book That Intimidates You

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1)

Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi

This book seriously intimidates the hell out of me. It’s a giant and I know there a lot of complex parts about it. I bought it so I could push myself towards reading it, but I’m still in that stage where I don’t really know if I want to read it just yet.

A Book That You Think Might Be Slow

Shadow and Bone (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #1)

The Shadow and Bone Trilogy – Leigh Bardugo

I’m not that big into fantasy that much anyways, so a book like this would be slow for me. I know there’s a lot of hype, a lot of people have read it… but I feel like for me it will take me a super long time to get through one of these books, let a lone a whole series.

A Book You Need To Be In The Right Mood For

Turtles All the Way Down

Turtles All The Way Down – John Green

This is a book you definitely have to be in the right mood/mind-set for. Pretty much any hard-hitting contemporary you have to be in the mood for, or at least in my opinion. A book like this where it deals with such heavy topics, you have to be in the right mood to be able to deal with all of that.

A Book You’re Unsure If You Will Like

Radio Silence

Radio Silence – Alice Oseman

I really want to read this book, and honestly all I have heard is amazing, good things. I’m nervous, but I do want to try this. Will I ever get to it though? Who knows.


I am tagging anyone who wants to go ahead and try this to go ahead and give it a shot! Tag me in your posts so I can see what some of your answers were as well!
