So, I am going to apologize right now for the major awful absence for the past three weeks. NaNo and school have taken over my life, and I feel like I am in a vicious circle of enough words>not enough sleep>too much sleep>not enough words/homework. And though I can't promise any more posts in the very near future, I did want to do this one.
Top 10 Tuesday!
Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
Soo....this week's topic is:
The Top 10 Books I've Been Meaning to Read for Forever, but haven't yet.
1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I am ashamed that I have not read this series yet. Everyone I've talked to says they're amazing and that I would really identify with her, but it just hasn't happened yet. Soon, though.
2. The Fellowship of the Ring(and the rest of the LotR trilogy)by J.R.R. Tolkien
Totally am like halfway through this one, but I have no clue where that halfway mark is. I started reading it like a bazillion years ago and don't remember a lot of what happened.
3. Almost ALL of Jane Austen's books. (Except for Pride and Prejudice! I DID read that one!)
Currently working my way through Northanger Abbey (and loving it!)
4. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Another one that everyone's supposed to have read, right? Well... I read A Little Princess, does that count for anything?
5. Calling on Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede
I LOVED the first two books in this series (The Enchanted Forest Chronicles) but ended up stopping somewhere in this one. I'll get back to it. Someday.
6. Spindle's End by Robin McKinley
I have had this book forever and it looked so good and I started it, but I think at the time it was kind of long and I just lost interest, but it looks amazing so I'm gonna go back and read it sometime.
7. The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Ahhh! I LOVE mysteries. Nancy Drew? I probably read more than half of her books(of which there are like 60 something...). And have read like five other mystery series since, but Sherlock Holmes? The all-time classic? The KING of mystery? Not yet.
8. Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
I have friends who love Tamora Pierce. I don't think I've ever finished a single book by her. SAd, I know.
9. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
So....I found this book, and there was a quote on the front from J.K. Rowling about how charismatic the narrator was, and stuff. And that got my attention, for sure.
10. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
My brother LOVED this book, and it sounded totally awesome to me. I think our library had run out of copies by the time I was interested in reading it though. I recently picked up a copy, but there it has remained. :P
What books have you never read, but feel obligated to or would like to, but just haven't had the time yet?
Hope y'all are having a fabulous week! :)
