Hey friends! Once again I’m gonna apologize for my lack of activity. I’ve just been so unmotivated to do things. Anywho, happy Thanksgiving to you!! And if you don’t celebrate or aren’t celebrating today, then I hope things are good and you’re having a nice day! 😄
I’ve seen this topic floating around recently on Youtube and thought it would be a fun post, also since I haven’t been participating in Top 5 Wednesday I thought it would be acceptable. So let’s get on with it, then.
I HAVE NO EXCUSE. I’ve heard so many greats things about her writing and this book in general, the world and the characters. It makes no sense that I’ve had this book on my shelf for a year now and still haven’t touched it. I KNOW. (I’ve finally just picked up Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor after almost a year. I KNOW!! I’m just glad I don’t have to include her on this list as well.)
Honestly, I have no excuse for this one either. I’ve intended to pick this one up from the library many times this year, but somehow ended up getting a bunch of other books. Plus, I was supposed to read The Kite Runner for one of my high school years, but never did. I do have that one setting on my makeshift night stand right now, though, so maybe it will be my next read!
Maybe it’s intimidation? I really don’t know why I never picked this one up, or even bothered to see if the library has it. When I first heard about it, I was excited, but now the desire to read it has died down. I’ll get to it eventually, I’m sure.
I heard about this book at the beginning of this year and I’ve really wanted to read it ever since, but my library doesn’t hold it and I haven’t bought books in these past few months. As for the previous months, I basically only get books from BookOutlet and I’ve never seen it on there, unfortunately. Hopefully I can read this soon, though!!
I’ve the same reason for this one as I do for Fire & Flood. The library doesn’t hold it! And as I said about buying books, it goes for this one as well. Though I’m particularly eyeing her newest release, Passenger, which comes out in January!!
Much like Throne of Glass, I’ve heard so much about these books and maybe it’s just intimidation, but my desire to read it has died down. Some day, though!

Does anyone remember the post where I shared series I still need to start? Remember this being on it? Yeah, well, I believe that list is still the same. I think it’s just because I’m not a big fan of contemporary, but this one’s still on my TBR. Surprised? Probably not.

I’ve heard mixed things about this series, but I’ve still always been interested in reading it. Apparently that doesn’t matter, though, as I never even picked it up yet. I never noticed or bothered to look if the library has it either. I’m just horrible with keeping up with my TBR as you may have noticed by now. I haven’t read any of her books, but I follow her on twitter. Makes sense, I know.

I’ve seen so much hype surrounding this one when I first found booktube and I wanted to read it just because of that hype, but I never actually knew what it was about until recently. Now that I know, it sounds just like something I would be allllll over, so I can’t believe I still haven’t read it yet!!

The desire to read Gone Girl had never really existed for me, I don’t think. I wanted to read it just for the sake of reading it because everybody else was. Now that the hype around it has died down, I’ve realized I may never even get to it, but I recently found the want to read Dark Places because it seems like my type of book, let’s be real.
