A weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is… A freebie! So I went through the long list of topics to get an idea, and I came up with Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read!
10. Anything by Cassandra Clare
You should all know by now that I hate paranormal romance, but even my friends who hate it right along with me highly recommend all her books, especially the Infernal Devices series. One of these days I’ll get around to it.
9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young
I’ve owned this book for almost a year, and after flipping through the first couple chapters I knew it was something I would love, yet I haven’t had the chance to read it!
8. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
My whole life The Princess Bride has been my favorite movie. And the moment I learned it was a book, I went searching for it. Somehow, after years of looking, I still haven’t found it anywhere!
7. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Another book I’ve owned for over a year! I’ve been hesitant to read it, even though everyone I’ve run into is in love with it.
6. Anything by Jane Austen
I really, really want to read Jane Austen’s works, but I’ve never had the chance thanks to stingy parents and a pathetic library. I did at some point get halfway through Pride and Prejudice, but then my copy got taken away and I still haven’t found it.
5. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I loved Divergent so much, but once again my library sucks, and I don’t really have money to spend on brand new hardcovers. So I’ll just have to wait.
4. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
For years my father has been begging me to read Tolkien’s books, but I just haven’t been interested. But now with the movie coming out soon, I really want to get it over and done with. And maybe I’ll end up actually liking it!
3. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I’ve probably mentioned before that I’m obsessed with the musical, so I’m surprised that I still haven’t read it! It’s just really hard to find an unabridged version anywhere at all, and I want the real deal.
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I know! I’ve owned it for a really long time, but I still haven’t read it! And if the rumors are right, I should drop my current read and jump straight on to this one! We’ll see…
1. Harry Potter books 4-7 by JK Rowling
This is my deep dark secret. I haven’t read the last half of the series, because they’re enormous! Instead, I’ve had the pleasure of listening to the audiobooks on the release. I was younger when they came out, and couldn’t handle multiple 700 page books in a row. Now I just prefer having the stories in an audio format. And for some reason, that’s helped me absorb a lot more Harry Potter facts, and I can destroy anyone in a trivia competition, all without ever having read the books!
