Let's Talk is a weekly feature here at i swim for oceans. I think it's important that we all have our say, and there's something to be said for raising our voices. Simply put, here on the little old blog, I like to host some of my very own discussion posts because, well, I like to converse with you all.
And so, Let's Talk will feature questions or prompts, which I will answer, too. Love it or hate it, weigh in or don't, it's my hope that Let's Talk will at least get you thinking...and maybe even get you discussing with the rest of us!
What books have you been putting off for a long and why?
Gosh, well, where to even start with this one? I mean, really. I think that ever since I started blogging I've become pickier and pickier about what I read. I think this mostly comes into play with series these days though. I started series when I began blogging, but as my TBR grew, so did my reluctance to spend a lot of time invested in one series.
Take, for example, the Mortal Instruments series. I was a diehard fan all through books one through three. Give me some Jace and Clary any day, right? Right. But here's the thing...when I found out that the series was continuing and that there was a prequel series, as well, I was oddly turned off. Ever since then, the series has been on my back burner.
Some other highlights that are on the list of books still waiting to be read are If I Stay by Gayle Foreman, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles. Why, you ask? Well, I'm terrified that I'll be the only person in the world that doesn't love them, of course. Le sigh.
What about you? What books have you been putting off for a really long time, and why?
