Top Ten Books I Feel As Though
Everyone Has Read But Me
1. Jayne Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - One of the famous classics that everyone seems to have read but me. I'm sure one day I'll get round to reading it.
2. Life of Pi by Yann Martel - How many times have I seen this on reading lists?!? It seems to be read by most people yet it has stayed on my bookcase for years.
3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Again seems to have been read by everyone but me. I do fancy reading it, but too many other books get in the way. I do want to see what all the hype is about.
4. Memoirs of a Geisha - I want to read this one, but never seem to get round to it. I have seen the film so maybe this has put me off. I will have to let the memory of the film die off a bit before I tackle this book.
5. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - Can't say that I have faniced reading this one. I know many people who have said it was good, but I'm not convinced I will enjoy it.
6. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell - How popular is this book! Everyone seems to talk about the characters. I do want to read this, just to see what the hype is all about.
7. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver - This was recommended to me by a friend, ever since I was told about this book I seem to have heard an awful lot about it. So many people I know have read it. I do have it on my bookshelves to read.
8. The Diary of A Young Girl by Anne Frank - I want to read this book but I'm guessing it will be really sad. Very famous and well known. I will read it one day, but will have to be in the right frame of mind.
9. The Road by Cormac McCarthy - This one is popular but I have been put off this one. A friend said that it was really hard to read as there were no chapters or punctuation marks. I am a big fan of short chapters - stems from reading on the go. This is also not the first bad review I've heard.
10. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - Now I can't understand why I haven't read this. I have always had a fascination for the story - I think it comes from my love of the song by Kate Bush based on this story. I've also seen a film of this and it has always stayed with me. So no excuse! Time to get the book read.
Do you think any of these are worthy reads?? What is your opinion of these titles............
