I Should Have Read That Book Tag
Created by Beth @ Books Nest
Beth said: “We’ve all had the thought of, I really should have read that book that everyone keeps recommending me, but we still haven’t picked it up. Inspired by the amount of books I am asked if I have read and I have to say no, introducing the ‘I should have read that book’ tag!

Here are the Tag prompts and my responses:
A book that a certain friend or blogger pal is always telling you to read.
This was one where there are literally too many friends, book pals, and book recs to name. This is not a bad thing, but it left me resorting to choosing one that I remember buying because at least three friends said this was fabulous and different and I should get it.
I chose a time travel prehistoric romance: Transcendence by Shay Savage.[spacer]
A book that has been on your TBR forever and you still haven’t picked it up.
Seriously. Only two questions in and, again, there are literally hundreds that would count for this so eenie, meanie, minie, mo… aha, we have a winner and it’s been one that I’ve been dragging my feet on ever since the author passed away and I knew that after this one, I would have the last of a series and nearly the last of her huge legacy backlist read.
I chose a historical romance: A Scandalous Countess by Jo Beverley.[spacer]
A book in a series that you started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing.
Anyone want to play pin the tail on the book series? I have many candidates for this one, too. I start a series just fine and then get distracted. But, I have one hallooing at me right now straight across from me so we’ll go with that one. I read the first two, loved them, started the first chapter of this one and got distracted. Finish, Soph! Not that hard, I tell myself.
I chose a paranormal romance: Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews.[spacer]
A classic you liked the sound of, but never actually read.
This was actually harder because I have been methodically reading through the classics on my list, but there is one that I’ve seen two movie adaptions and still no takers because the sucker is nearly a thousand pages long.
I chose a historical fiction: Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.[spacer]
A popular book it seems everyone, but you has read.
Reiterating that there are several and moving on to choosing the first bright, shiny that caught my eye on my wishlist.
I chose contemporary romance: A Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang.[spacer]
A book that inspired a film/TV adaption, but you still haven’t read yet.
This is tough because I do tend to read the book and not watch the movie more than the other way around, but there are a few. I just watched this one, in fact.
I chose contemporary: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan[spacer]
A book you’ve seen all over Instagram, but haven’t picked up yet.
Umkay, confession time, I don’t get on Instagram or Bookstagram as much as I’d like so I went with one from a little while back that I remember seeing all over bookish social media that I caught sight of even last week.
I chose YA Contemporary Romance: Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
There you have it. My walk of shame. LOL Kidding. I actually don’t mind the anticipation of having many great books still to read.
Thank you to Sharonda @ Brazen Babe Reviews for tagging me! I had a good time pulling this one together.
Incidentally, all, a fun weekly blog meme related to this tag is Carole @ Carole’s Random Life In Books’ Books From the Backlog. I find it an enjoyable motivation to delve into my shelves and pull out older books for consideration for the current stack.
But, that’s not all, I do a monthly To Be or Not To Be… Read TBR vote post that I appreciate our readers stopping by and helping me steadily read through the books I already own. You are always welcome to snitch the idea and go with it if you like.
