We all have those books that have sat on our TBR since like…2010. But what about the books that you keep saying you’ll read, but never actually open? Well, today you get a glimpse at all the books I do that with, so grab an iced coffee and let’s chat!

A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read.
A friend on Goodreads recommended Unknown by Vanessa Hall to me, and ever since then, I keep seeing it pop up on my Goodreads feed, so I think it’s a sign. 😉
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up.
The Indifferent Stars Above: The Harrowing Saga of the Donner Party by Daniel James Brown has been on my TBR for honestly like four or five years. And…it’s been sitting on my physical bookshelf for that four or five years.
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet.
The Steelheart trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I started the trilogy literally forever ago, but I never read the last book. In fact, I think I stopped the second book halfway through because I was confused and maybe a little bored.
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I actually own a copy of this one because I saw it at Barnes and Noble a few years ago, and swore that I was finally gonna read a classic. But alas, it still remains on my bookshelf, pretty much untouched since I bought it.
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read.
The Selection by Kiera Cass. I feel like everyone read this back when it came out in 2012, and I…never got around to it? For someone who proclaims to be a lover and consumer of all dystopias, especially the 2012 ones, I sure did slack off with this one. But is it actually worth reading? I’ve heard so many people complain about this series, so I’m not sure if I just avoided an annoying series or if I’m actually missing out on some peak 2012 content.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I watched all three of the movies with my best friend, and my love for these movies was definitely a slow-burn. I’ve considered getting the first book from my library multiple times, but every time I just…don’t. Hopefully I’ll read them soon because they look like such cute rom-coms that are easy to read.
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet.
I’m not on Instagram, so I’m tweaking this to “A book you see all over Facebook but haven’t picked up yet.” One of my internet friends, Hanne T, has posted a lot of stories about Atomic Habits by James Clear. I’ve heard only good things about this book, so I’ve wanted to read it for a while, but idk, I just don’t read a ton of nonfiction, so it’s hard for me to commit to it.
I genuinely don’t know who still does blog tags, so anyone reading this is tagged.
What are some books that you’ve been meaning to read, but never actually read? Which classics are on your TBR? What did you think of The Selection series? Is it worth reading or is it not worth the hype? Let’s talk about all the overrated and underrated TBR-worthy books in the comments!
