Hey there guys! Welcome to Daydreaming Discussions. This is a monthly feature created by me where I discuss anything bookish related or sometimes it might be about any non-bookish things as well. Also be prepared for a lot of ramblings and rantings and you’re very welcome to be a part of the discussion.
Today’s topic is-
This post was inspired by Adhvika @ Books and Fiction. Check out her blog guys! Though I did a twist to my one. I’m going to be listing ten hyped books that I already have but I haven’t read yet along with my reasons! Also these books are either the first in a series or standalone.
So here we go!
- On number 1 we have Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare!
My Reason: I do have a legit reason for this one. I’m currently reading Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, so I’m pretty close to finishing The Infernal Devices trilogy. Next I’ll finish the last two books of The Mortal Instruments series before heading to Lady Midnight. So I’m just following the series here… but I couldn’t resist buying this one as soon as it came out but it’s worth the wait. 🙂
2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.
My Reason: I have heard mixed reviews for this one so although I bought it I was still kinda reluctant but now someone on Instagram convinced me so I think I’ll give it a go pretty soon.
3. Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski.
My Reason: Eeeh! I should have already read this by now but… I haven’t. *sighs* I will, I will as soon as I’m finished marathoning with the Shadowhunter stuff!
4. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray.
My Reason: Basically I’ve only heard good things about this book but I just didn’t have the time to pick it up yet. Also I think I want the 2nd book first before I start with this series. I mean all the covers in this series are so gorgeous, I want them all!
5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
My Reason: This series is crazily hyped and most of the people in planet Earth have already read it, ate it. So why haven’t I? I really have no idea. I think a tini-tiny part of me is still not convinced about this one. I guess I’ll read it eventually, it’s just not my top priority at the moment.
*Dodges a flying book!*
6. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
My Reason: For this book, I really have no clue about why I haven’t started this series yet. It’s sitting on my e-shelf for a long time. I think I have to pick it up soon now! Nonetheless I have a feeling I’m going to love this one.
7. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.
My Reason: I’m running out of reasons now. I loved Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I was really excited to read this one but I just haven’t. I slowly have to walk my way up to my everlasting tbr that’s piling up in my home!
8. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy.
My Reason: Are you people tired of my reasons yet?! So I’ll just say I’ll get to this one as soon as possible!
9. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West.
My Reason: There was a time when pretty much everyone was reading this one. Wherever I looked, they were posting the reviews of this book so naturally I was pretty curious to read this one. I downloaded the ebook but never got to the reading part but reading a YA contemporary romance really depends on my mood, I can suddenly pick it up any day now!
10. Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern
My Reason: This book is pretty big. Not that matters but I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews for this one and I really want to see the film. So I pretty much buyed this book on an impulse when I was in the book store and I heard two girls gushing about it. So yeah now I have a reason to read it and then watch the film asap!
Now, I’m going to list some more reasons. NO! Hear me out before running away, okay? 😛 I’m going to state some universal reasons why I don’t end up reading a book that I already own-
Life- I’m a student. So I’ve studying and stuffs, stuffs and pretty much other stuffs to do! So the time is pretty limited and it’s one of the main factor. Also when exams fall into the equation, I pretty much go on a reading ban. Its tough *sniffs* but also necessary!
ARCs- With arcs comes obligations. We usually have a specific time limit to finish the book and post the review. And I basically can’t control myself so yeah… the books that I already own push back down in my list.
Mood- Uh yeah, it does play a vital role because if I’m not in the mood for reading a particular genre I might end up disliking that book and believe me you don’t want that!
Plus I already own the books I have, I can read it later, right? Eh… but that later ends up being much, much later! I really want to read this books that I’ve listed. So, I hope I can get to them soon enough! *fingers crossed!*
Sooo… what did you think of this post guys? Do you have a list of books that you own but haven’t read it? Or how many books have you read from this list?
Also, what do you think of the reasons, specifically the universal ones? Do you agree or disagree? Or do you have some more reasons to add? 😛
