Okay, so you know those books? Those books that everybody has read? The books that, once you admit you haven't read, cause people to go, "Are you bloody serious? You need to read it!"
Believe it or not, I get this reaction all the time. I read a weird variety of books. At times they're books people have never heard of, and occasionally it's a popular book. But still, there are those titles that I have year to read, of which I can't wait to read.
1. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - A NYT's Bestseller, I know loads ofpeople who've read this. I own a copy, so I'm ready to tackle it!
2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - Does this count? I've only recently read the first book, and I hate rushing series. But everyone else has read it.
3. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - Okay, so lots of people have read this one. I sort of want to, and I'm really tempted to buy it...
4. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - I read The Kite Runner by the same author and fell in love with his style and story telling. Most people have also read this book of his, so I need to soon!
5. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown - Everybody read this... before Angels and Demons. Haha, sucks for you, that wasn't the first book. I happened to read the first book, so this is next.
6. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - It seemed like wthing the span of a few months, everybody was reading this classic. Then the movie came out. I need to read it soon!
7. King Lear by William Shakespeare - So I've read my fair share of Billy Shake, but this is just one I haven't delved into yet.
8. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll- A great classic. I want to read it just to say I've read it, and that I love the story telling for something beeyong te big screen adaptions.
9. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey - Well this one is a classic, and don't you know it. It's a classic a lot of people love, so I hope I will too.
10. North and South by Elizabeth Gakell - The popularity for this book is pretty huge, and for those of you who don't dabble in BBC (You horrible, horrible people you!), they've made it into a mini-series!
*Note: These are books I want to read, not just books everyone has read but me. I kept the books that I have no intention of reading off the list.*
