The “I’ll Get Around to It Later” Book Tag

Happy Saturday, friends! After an emotionally draining day, I was looking for an easy tag to do and after browsing through my saved tags, I decided to go for this one. Who here hasn’t ever said, “I’ll Get Around to It Later”? I know that I say that quite a lot (pretty much almost every time I buy a book, lol)! I stumbled across this one on Emma’s blog a very long time ago and I’m excited to dive in.

This post was originally created by Liesl @Quote, Unquote

The Rules:

  1. Link back to the original post at Quote, Unquote so the creator can read your answers.
  2. Link back to the post of the person who tagged you and thank them.
  3. You may use the included graphic anywhere in your post, but you don’t have to. (I didn’t end up doing this)
  4. Fill in all seven categories.
  5. You can either leave this tag open so anyone can do it or tag up to seven people.

1. A Classic book that you have been meaning to read forever but haven’t yet

The Count of Monte Cristo
by Alexandre Dumas

I think I’ve said I’ll read this for several years now. It’s one that I’m highly interested in and have heard amazing things about as well, so I’m looking forward to reading it but the chonkiness is intimidating AF!

2. A book on your shelf that you haven’t read yet

The Library of the Unwritten
by A.J. Hackwith

I can definitely choose more than one… 😂 But I went with this because it’s not too old, not too new. I’ve also heard great things about it and actually hope to read it this year!

3. A book that you got recently that you haven’t read

Spells for Lost Things
by Jenna Evans Welch

I saw great things for this book so when I saw it on sale a couple of weeks ago, I immediately added it to my stack. It looks and sounds great! 😍

4. A book that you’ve had forever but haven’t read

Black Leopard, Red Wolf
by Marlon James

This can definitely be… many books from my TBR! I went for this because… It’s been a hot moment since I’ve had it on my shelf and I was so excited to get my hands on a copy too. Welp!

5. A book a friend recommended that you haven’t read

Lessons in Chemistry
by Bonnie Garmus

I’m picking this from my 12 Book Challenge list. I’ve made poor progress with this challenge but I’m really looking forward to reading this book!

6. A book you’re procrastinating on

The Heart Principle
by Helen Hoang

This can literally be everything on my TBR? I’m going for this cos I actually have this on my TBR cart next to my bed to indicate that I want to pick it up ASAP. I hope it finally happens because this has been one of my most anticipated reads for a long time!

7. The next book on your TBR

The Ashes and the Star Cursed King
by Carissa Broadbent

I’m a mood reader and I’m not entirely sure what I’ll read next until I start reading something but I kinda wanna get started on this!

I’m tagging…

That’s it for this tag! What books have you said “I’ll get to it later” to? Are any of these also still on your TBRs?

  1. I have been procrastinating on the Hoang book too. I feel like I might like it, but I’m not sure. I adore Welch’s books (that one was great), and Lessons in Chemistry was fabulous. Hope you get a chance to read them.

    • I’m quite sure I’ll like it but I also feel like I have to gear myself up to read it. I’m also kind of sad that Quan’s story, which I’ve been SO looking forward to, isn’t what I expected it would be (or so I’ve heard from everyone who’s read the book). I hope we both love it whenever we pick it up though 🙂

  2. I don’t know whether this tag is genius or a savage attack

    I remember finding The Library of the Unwritten far too dramatic for me and Black Leopard Red Wolf’s prose wanted far more focus than was in me, so clearly I think you’re making the right choices there

    • HAHA, it’s definitely a savage attack on self but it was fun to answer anyhow! I do recall hearing that Black Leopard Red Wolf was… intense and not necessarily in a great way, so that definitely put me off from picking it up sooner. I remember being so excited for it and now I’m not sure if/when I’ll read it! It’s kinda good to know then I’m not *really* missing out, lol

  3. Great responses, Dini. I also have The Library of the Unwritten and Lessons in Chemistry on my Shelf. I hope you get them all read this year, you have lots of time. 😁

  4. Thanks for the tag, Dini! I have a lot of books I’m procrastinating on and they are usually mostly my physical books. It’s so easier to read my ebooks in bed at night (which is usually the only time I can read). I enjoyed reading your responses!

    • It’s definitely easier to get through books on my Kindle TBR! I wonder why that is when it’s the physical books that are literally right before my eyes 😂 But I do agree it is also easier to read eBooks at night in bed.

    • Haha, definitely calling ourselves out with this tag but it was fun to do! Kinda reminded me of books that I forgot I had on my TBR tbh 😂 I just finished cataloguing all the books on my Kindle and woof, the # of read vs unread is… incredible 🫣 HAHA

      • During that first year of covid, I did that. Then, I went through the list and actually looked up blurbs and reviews and decided whether I wanted to still read them or toss them. When I had a final list of ones I wanted to read, I plugged them in between ARCs. Some I ended up listening to instead of reading. It felt like such an accomplishment.


  5. I love this tag! I feel like its a big call out to how big our TBRs are hahah I’ll have to do it.
