I’m sure a lot of you know that there are many, many, many popular books I’ve not read. Like there are heaps. And it kills me. So here’s a list of some the more embarrassing ones!
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I own this whole trilogy and I have for a few months but I just haven’t picked it up yet… I want to! Especially with the movie adaptation being released this year, but I just keep putting it off for some reason!
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I’m sure a lot of you know about this too… I have read the first book! And I thought it was meh… But I’ve been told it gets a lot better and I really want to love this series and understand all the fandom things I see on Tumblr and blogs and Instagram because not knowing KILLS MY SOUL. But I own the whole series now! So I’m going to read it… I’m going to marathon it all, it’s going to happen! I promise!
- The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
I actually own this and I’ve read the first 3 pages. I really enjoyed those 3 pages, too! I know this series is super super popular but I just have SO MANY books to read that I haven’t gotten to it yet. I’m hoping to in the next few months though.
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I am so on the fence about this series! I tried to read the first book when I was younger but I just couldn’t get into it. But lately I’ve been thinking about buying it because I want to read the Bloodlines series… Let me know your thoughts on the Vampire Academy series in the comments!
- Red Rising by Pierce Brown
This trilogy has so much hype surrounding it. A lot of people love it and a lot of people hate. I do own the first book now but I keep putting it off because I’m worried I won’t like it… But I really want to like it because I have a lot of love for the covers.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
I guess technically this shouldn’t be on the list because I’m reading this series now (I’m up to The Battle of the Labyrinth and I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH) but it has taken me ages and ages and ages to get to it. This series deserves ALL THE HYPE.
- The Diviners by Libba Bray
I have owned this book for months now and I still haven’t read it. I want to but it’s long and I just keep putting it off because time is fleeting and I just need to buckle down and read it.
- Jane Austin
I think you all know I am not a fan of classics so it should come as no surprise that I haven’t read anything by Jane Austin. I see her books all over Booktube and the covers are almost pretty enough to convince me to buy them but I just don’t see myself enjoying them… Maybe one day I’ll own them, but for now they will stay on this list.
So there are 8 books/series I am ashamed to have not read yet… There’s probably so many more but these are the only ones I can think of right now. Perhaps at the end of the year I will consult this list and see how many I managed to cross off. In the meantime though, let me know in the comments what books you’re ashamed to have not read yet!
