Books Left Unread
Welcome to my blog post where I talk about the books I have been meaning to read, but just have not yet. You know what I am talking about – the books that have remained unread for various reasons yet when you see them you think, “You know, I really need to read that.” Instead you get distracted by another book, series, or something in your TBR pile. It happens to the best of us. I want to spotlight those books in the hope that I can persuade myself to move them up on my TBR list.
This post is dedicated to the Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone series:
I have been eye guzzling this series and those beautiful covers for about a year now… maybe longer. I hunted for it at every discount book store I could find, hoping I would be able to find one so I could start reading. Fast forward to now and I finally have the complete hardback series and yet they still sit on my shelf untouched. I believe this is another series that intimidates me. There is so much love for this series that again, I am afraid I am either not going to understand or I’m not going to like. That scares me. When I put books on such a high pedestal, I fear the let down. I fear being bored with the story. Hence the reason they still sit and look great next to my other books.
So tell me, why should I move this up on my TBR list? Does it really live up to the wonderful rumors I hear about it? Let me know.
