But... I'm still embarrassed I haven't read these books! I keep saying I will, and hell, a few of them are planned buddy reads that I just keep putting off. I mean, sure I don't really have the time for them. But I could make time if I wanted to, ya know? *le sigh* These aren't even the only books; it's just a short list of them!
I honestly think the reason I haven't read this is because I don't wanna get involved in a series that's ongoing. And also it's so hyped, what if I end up not liking it?
Another hyped up book that scares me! I'm also a little tired of series and don't wanna keep up with the long waits.
I thought I would read this one as soon as I got it, but I HAVEN'T YET AND I DON'T KNOW WHY TO BE HONEST.
A YA contemporary that I was so excited about but never actually got around to reading! I think I keep forgetting it's on my desk..
For some reason, I STILL haven't tried a Gayle Forman book! What is wrong with me?
I loved Attachments, but I haven't gotten around to reading more Rainbow Rowell, which is sad. And embarrassing.
DON'T JUDGE ME OKAY.
I really, really need to read this book. For real.
I tried this once, but I wasn't in the mood for it at the time, so I put it back down. But I really want to read a Victoria Schwab book, so why haven't I picked it back up?!
I loved The Young Elites, so this binge-read of the series needs to happen pronto!
I want to watch the movie so badly, but I can't obviously because this is on my list and I haven't read it yet.
So many people have LOVED this book, and I can't believe I haven't read it yet! It sounds like the perfect book for me too.
Basically ALL the Cora Carmack books. I think I have almost every single one of them too. It's so embarrassing.
I've heard this has one of the best male POVs ever, which I love, and it's been sitting on my kindle for the LONGEST time.
I WAS SUPPOSED TO READ THIS LAST MONTH BUT I DIDN'T. I'M SO TERRIBLE.
Have you noticed a pattern? Most of these books are very hyped and very popular. And that always makes me wary when it comes to reading them. Hype has killed books for me before, which is what happened with The Fault in Our Stars. And I also just don't want the popularity to be the reason why I'm reading it, ya know? I feel like when I'm letting other people influence my reading, it changes things a little (I'm not talking about recs; I'm talking the general pushing of books onto others, which I love doing btw). I don't know how to explain it; I'm just a weirdo here. An embarrassed weirdo. I clearly have a lot of reading to do, and I'm sure y'all will yell at me in the comments about these books. So here's the deal: invent me something that will give me more time in a day, and I will gladly read these books. Otherwise, they'll happen when they happen, okay? GOOD.
What books are YOU embarrassed about not having read yet? Do you find yourself putting off really hyped up books, or does what other people are saying not matter to you when deciding to read a book?
