Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so go see what other authors decided to write about for this week’s prompt!
I’m gonna be honest, I haven’t read as many of the classics as I would have liked to. There are just SO MANY BOOKS out there! And more are published every day! Who can keep up?! I’ve been blogging for a while, so I figured that most of these were safe choices for when I actually added them to my TBR.
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hossini
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
These next two books have been on my TBR, but I probably will never read them.
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
I started reading this book in fourth grade. Some bookseller handsold this to my mom, telling her that it was totally appropriate for a young girl who likes Wizard of Oz. No way is this book appropriate for a 9-year-old, and honestly it was a little scarring to read. I’ve been given the book several times over, because I love Wizard of Oz still as an adult, but I’ve never read it. I don’t think it’ll ever happen. I love the play, though?
Lolita by Vladimir Nobokov
I think you can all probably guess why I won’t read this. I feel like I should read it, because it’s such a classic, but I can’t bring myself to check it out of the library.
What books have you been meaning to read but haven’t quite managed it yet?
