Top 10 Tuesday: I need to read more…

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s prompt is  I Wish Had (More/Less) ___ In Them. I surprisingly found this topic kind of hard. So I twisted it a bit and decided to share some of the books that I can’t believe I haven’t read. I’m talking about books that it seems every fellow book blogger/reader has read, books I have been meaning to read forever, and books everyone seems to rave about. Enjoy!

Classics:

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens // I have tried this one at least three times but I get distracted and don’t get too far. I am determined to finish it one of these years for The Classics Club. Hoping that year is this year!

Something besides Narnia by C. S. Lewis // People rave about Lewis (and I rave about Narnia) but I still haven’t read much by him.

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen // I know the story, I love the movie, I need to read the book.

The full Anne of Green Gables series by L. M. Montgomery // I think I have read about 3 of the books. I finally own the full series and I really want to read them this year. Anyone want to read with me?

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo // Another classic that I absolutely love (I saw the musical in London on my study abroad. It was life changing!). But I still haven’t read it yet. But after finishing War and Peace, I feel like I can do this one too 🙂

A Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank // I feel like I have read pieces of this book but never the full account.

On my TBR Forever:

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas // I have been meaning to give Maas a try for a long time.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard // I feel like so many book bloggers have read this book and I have still not read it.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel // I bought this book at a local book sale last year. And I have been wanting to read it for a while now. The movie is beautiful.

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee // I go back and forth between actually wanting to read this and wanting to keep my opinion of To Kill a Mockingbird as it is. Thoughts?

What books do you really need to read?

  1. If I had to chose one book off this list for you to read, it would be A Diary of a Young Girl for sure. I read it back when I was in high school and it is something that has stuck with me ever since. Actually it is def time for a re-read.

    I read Red Queen last year and was not a fan. It just felt like it was a rip off of The Hunger Games… arena fights, love triangle (square?), unfair class system, narcissistic tendencies of the upper class, government oppression of lower class, uprising of oppressed lower class, government using lower class girl to pacify the uprising, the “rebels” using that same girl as the face of their rebellion, etc etc.

    1. I think I read pieces of Anne Frank in high school but I don’t think I’ve read the whole thing. Good advice 🙂 And thanks for the thoughts on Red Queen. Honestly, after your assessment, I’m not sure it belongs on my TBR at all. I didn’t like the end of The Hunger Games series. Plus, so many books, so little time, right? 😉 Thanks!
