Thursday Tags: Top 5 Most Embarrassing Unread Books

I would like to start a weekly section entitled "Thursdays Tags" where I do some of those popular tags about books that are floating around the internet.  The first tag that I am doing is my top 5 most embarrassing unread books.  I found this tag over at For the Love of Books.  So here it is in no particular order.

1. The Chronicles of Narnia Series

I am working on this one currently.  As a Christian and a fanatic about children's fiction (escpecially when it involves fantasy), I cannot believe that I have not read this whole series.  I am working on it though.

2. Cinder

This is a fairytale retelling and it has cyborgs! Why have I not read this yet? I have been wanting to read this book for over a year now because I have heard so many good reviews over this series, but I haven't gotten my hands on this one yet.  The key word here is yet.

3. The Darkest Minds

The fact that this seems to be dystopian and it involves children with powers they cannot control is the central reason that I have to have this book.  I want to read it so bad and it doesn't help that everyone has such positive reviews of it!

4. Any Brandon Sanderson novel

I absolutely adore fantasy novels and yet somehow I have not read any of Brandon Sanderson's novels.  This has to be fixed soon!

5. Fangirl

This story involves a college girl how is a fanatic about a series that is similar to Harry Potter.  I am in college. I love Harry Potter.  I must read this book!

f you have read any of these books, comment below on what you thought about them.  I would love to hear your opinions.  What are your most embarrassing unread books?

Children's Book Review Tuesday: Picture Books

Book Title: Eric, The Boy Who Lost His Gravity

Author: Jenni Desmond

Publish Date: March 11, 2014

 Why I Read this Book: I received a free copy of this book for review purposes from Edelweiss.  This in no way influenced my review.




This book was not my favorite picture book.  The illustrations were not very pleasing.  I did love how the illustrations took up the whole page.  The story did not have much of a plot.  It was very simple.  I think that this book had potential, but I do not think it would be very memorable for a child.

Final Statements

Recommended Reading Age:  5-8

Overall Rating: 2/5

Book Title: Scribbles and Ink: The Contest

Author: Ethan Long

Publish Date: September 10, 2013

 Why I Read this Book: I received a free copy of this book for review purposes from Edelweiss.  This in no way influenced my review.




The illustrations in this book where drawn by the characters in the book.  I think that this was a great idea.  The story line was simple, yet really creative.  I think that children would really enjoy these books.
