5 Books I Want to Read but Never Will

Hey awesome readers. I got a weird one for you guys today. A list of 5 books I want to read but sadly I probably never will! Why wont I? A big part of the reason is that I already have myself fully booked on reading so I just wont be fitting this gems in. But trust me I have no regrets about my TBR, or else it wouldn’t be what it is. You guys know I like to read the books no one is reading so I can say ‘hey look over here, guys’ when I find a really awesome indie book!

So here are 5 books that are not on my TBR but probably totally awesome. You should definitely read them if you haven’t already so you can tell me all about them and I can live vicariously through your reading experience!


The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I barely got through the movie trailer without crying I know I wont be able to make it through this book in one piece. This is such an important and relevant topic but so painful at the same time.


Wonder Woman Warbringer

I want to read this book because Wonder Woman is awesome and I am all about girl power but I just don’t think I have the time. I also don’t really buy books that often because I already have too many to read and since I don’t own this one… chances are I wont read it.


Ready Player One

Idk this book just looks cool. Being a gamer myself, I’m all for the premise. But what will probably end up happening is I will see the movie first and then not want to read the book. I really prefer to read the books first but since the bae and I are pretty on top of seeing new movies I just don’t see it getting read in time. That’s what happened with The Hunger Games which is sitting in my kindle library at 0% read. The Hunger Games is an honorable mention but since I do own a copy of that series I might actually read it… someday.


One of Us is Lying

Love the premise of this book, no clue if it is good or not, probably wont find out. Are they making a movie or show? I’ll probably end up watching that first too if they are.


Shutter Island


I own this book and have had it sitting on my shelf for years. My mom loved this book and I loved the movie but… I’ve been waiting until I forget the movie, namely the twist in it so that I could read the book with freshish eyes… of course when I want to forget something I can’t…


If you have read any of these I would love to hear your thoughts!

    That’s fine. There are a handful of books that know I’ll never get to read, either. There are too many books and not enough time!

    You are missing ou on A Hate You Love to Give. Except for the horrible language (which I am told is authentic,sadly enough) it really has a message.

      Hopefully it will appear on my shelf someday and I’ll end up reading it!
