Top Ten Tuesday is a weakly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week a different topic comes up and bloggers list their top ten books in that category. I love a good list...I've always said that. That's practically my catchphrase.
Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read!
This week we had to choose a past 'Top Ten Tuesday' that we didn't do the first time around and I went for this one! There are way more than ten but these are the ones that I am most embarrassed to admit.
Title: The Hobbit
Author: J.R.R Tolkein
I have this one on my shelf, as well as the graphic novel version. I really want to read it before the movie comes out so I will get round to it in the next...couple of years.
Title: Brave New World
Author: Aldous Huxley
I adore the cover and the premise of the novel. I really need to read it but I never seem to have the motivation to pick it up.
Title: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Author: Ken Kesey
A classic I have never even picked up. Shameful.
Title: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee
I think I might have read this one but I can't actually remember any of it. Re-read definitely in order!
Title: City of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare
I feel like everyone has read this book/series and I really want to! I have hard copy and Kindle version so I really have no excuse!
Title: Sense and Sensibility
Author: Jane Austen
The reason I haven't read this one is that I saw the movie when I was very young and have seen it many times since, so I feel I know the story too well to be bothered reading the book. I will though. One day.
Title: Northern Lights/ The Golden Compass
Author: Philip Pullman
This trilogy is one of the most loved and most widely acclaimed series of all time and I have no idea why I haven't read it. I think I tried to when I was younger and didn't get too far. I will definitely read this in the future.
Title: The Catcher in the Rye
Author: J.D Salinger
No excuse. Just...effort.
Author: George Orwell
The ultimate dystopian and I have always neglected it. Again, just shameful.
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
This is the one I'm most ashamed of myself for not reading. This is because I love Nabokov and can't believe I haven't read his most famous novel. ONE DAY.
Now all my book shame is out in the open! Let me know what yours would be!
