Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read
Argh! Those nagging, someday-I'm-going-to-get-to-these, books! Here's a few of mine.
The Book of Merlyn - Told myself I was going to read this summer after graduation. I was riding the wave after reading 'The Once and Future King'. Instead, I read the Harry Potter series. Fun times, but not what I'd planned.
The Count of Monte Cristo - Bucket list item I've yet to conquer.
Les Misérables - I've heard from a friend that, while a great work of literature, it makes one miserable to read cause every character is miserable. Bad times, an understatement.
The Time Traveler's Wife - Although the movie and the hype has passed, I love time travel as a genre. I've wanted to see what it's all about. At this point, I could probably read the book with little memory of the movie and re-watch like new.
1984 - Heard that it's a creepy but thought-provoking read. A grandpa of scifi and most of the dystopian novels I like today.
Life of Pi - I said, once again, I was going to read this one back during a fall or spring TBR...didn't happen. The movie was great. I'm sure the book is better. Just so much to read.
North & South - LOVE the mini-series. Gah, I need to see if the book is equally swoon-worthy!
Little Men - Little Women is one of my fav classics. I've always heard mixed things about the sequels, mainly they don't hold up to the first. But, I should see for myself.
Uglies - Ever since it's publication, it sounded like an interesting plot. Just never got around to reading it.
Cinder - Based on the synopsis and the rave reviews of friends, I really should have read this by now!
