We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.
What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?
There are many books that are considered must reads that I never plan to read. Gone With the Wind and most anything by Jane Austen spring to mind. However, these are the books that I would like to read. Someday.
- Lolita - just because the name Lolita holds so much meaning.
- Dracula - I actually bought a copy a few months ago, so he's made himself at home in the bookshelf. Maybe I'll wait 'til Halloween and really creep myself out.
- Half of a Yellow Sun - I will be reading this one sometime this year, as it is on my list for the Dewey's Books Challenge. So is The Book Thief, which I've noticed on plenty of other BTT lists this week.
- Never Let Me Go - because I need to know the secret!
Given more time (an an earlier start to this post) I could go on, but if I keep going this will turn into Booking Through Friday.
