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 week’s post is dedicated to:

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

 

want to read this but I haven’t yet. I didn’t enjoy the first book as much as everyone else so that means I am afraid I won’t like the second. 😦 Did you read this? What did you think?

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

 

I have always been curious about this book but wondered if I will struggle with it since it is translated. If it is anything like the movies (the original European movies, not the US movies) then I’m not sure I will be able to handle it. Intense. Have you read this or are you interested in reading it?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1)

 

I will not lie – this has been on my TBR for years. I have been fascinated with this type of story from the moment it was announced… but I struggle reading Jane Austen so it has sat on my shelf. I also haven’t seen the movie so I have no clue if I will even like this one but I can’t seem to forget about it. Have you read this or is it even on your radar?

The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig

The Fire Sermon (The Fire Sermon, #1)

 

I’m a sucker for a good dystopian and this looks right up my alley. But sadly I’m afraid of the let down since the last few dystopians have flopped for me. Have you read this? What did you think?

Once Upon A Mattress: My Guide To The Perfect Day In

It is that in between time of year in Texas when everyone is over the chilly winter months and ready for warmer Spring days, but Mother Nature hasn’t quite gotten that memo yet. That means the nights are still chilly and most days are as well. As an avid book lover, it makes me want to snuggle up with a good book and read the day away, especially a Saturday after a long work week. I was asked by Leesa, an online mattress company, to describe my perfect day in,. Here are a few things that would make a book girl like me happy.

 

A warm (possibly heated?) blanket to snuggle under. I know this is usually a given but something about a warm blanket makes the experience that much better.

Possibly a cozy couch to snuggle on?

Or the bed?

Perhaps a chair?

I normally won’t know exactly where I want to read until I’m ready to settle down.

 

My drink and snack next to me on the table. That way I won’t have to get up as often. 😉

The book I am ready to spend my day reading. It could be my Harry Potter books or the latest book that I cannot stop thinking about.

Not to mention my headphones for an audiobook in case I need something different.

To round out the day, my husband would either be out of the house with his friends or quietly playing video games in his “man cave”. That would leave me in peace to read without as many interruptions. 😉 This sounds like a day of bliss to me.

Now everyone has a different idea of what their perfect day in would be so I challenge every one of you to let me know what your perfect day in (or night!) would be! Either type it in the comments or create your own blog post. I really would love to know everyone’s take on this idea. Many huge thanks to Leesa Mattress for reaching out to me about this wonderful idea! Want to learn more about Leesa?

My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

My Best Friend's Exorcism

 

This story really has my attention, but I just can’t bring myself to start it. Why? Probably the fear of being let down. 😦 Have you read this one? What did you think?

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler

What We Saw

 

I have an ARC of this book sitting on my shelf. I received it from someone because the premise really captured my attention. Apparently it wasn’t enough to make me grab this off of the shelf. It seems to be getting good reviews on GR so maybe I should give it a chance. Have you read it?
