A book that a certain friend always tells you to read

This one is a bit tricky for me since most of my friends aren’t big readers and I have read most of what they’ve said they liked. So, I’m going to put one down that I just read after being pestered for months about it.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

I will admit I was extremely skeptical about reading this book. Why? I’m not quite sure. The summary interested me, but it seemed very much like traditional, European-based medieval fantasy. In a lot of ways that’s true, but the writing is so good that I really enjoyed it.


A book that has been on your TBR forever, and yet you still haven’t picked it up

It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiura

I saw it. I feel like I could enjoy it. I haven’t gotten it. My list of unread books is piling up and I guess I just haven’t felt the pull enough to go out of my way to get this book.


A book in a series you have started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing

The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty

I loved The City of Brass. I pre-ordered this book I was so excited about it coming out, but I don’t know I just never have gotten around to actually reading it.


A classic you have always liked the sound of, but never actually read

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

I head a lot that this book is A LOT to handle, but I’m also intrigued by it. I think there’s a lot going on there that I’d be interested in reading.

But Also,

The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu (maybe?)

This is the oldest novel found in Japan. I love Japanese history and I’ve really wanted to read this, but it is a beast of a book and every time I look at it I get a bit intimidated.


What do you think? Do you also have books you’ve felt like you should read? I’m interested to see all of your lists and hear your thoughts.
