Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish!
This is my first time participating; it sounds like a lot of fun!
This week's topic: Top Ten Books That Have Been On My Shelf For The Longest But I've Never Read
Anne of green gables by L.M Montgomery
So, I remember buying this many years ago from BORDERS (gosh, I miss it so much!) since it was only $5. But I never read it; it’s been sitting on my shelf and collecting dust :S I guess I felt like reading like back when I bought it but then lost interest.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I bought this with those primary school Scholastic book packs (for only $2!). I read the first few pages and gave up! But I was young back and I couldn’t be bothered reading it (the language was so hard to understand!); even now, I still can’t finish Austen’s books. I nearly died reading Emma for school at the start of this year!
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I bought this with a book voucher I received from school as part of an award I guess. Never got around to finishing it though. I remember how back then it had like the Twilight fame, but unfortunately, I couldn’t get past the first few chapters.
Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke
The third in the Inkheart series. (translated from GERMAN) I loved this back when I was in primary school! I was so excited when the third & last book came out, and immediately bought the hardcover. Too bad, I forgot what happened at the end of the second book and couldn’t be bothered re-reading it, so this has been sitting on my bookshelf untouched and unread.
Forever by Maggie Stiefvator
I won an ARC of this a while ago; but I haven’t read Shiver and Linger yet. Don’t know if I want to though. I know for a fact that Maggie is an amazing writer, but somehow the premise of Shiver sounds too clichéd & I think of Twilight for some reason…
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien
Haha, am I the only one in the world who hasn’t read this? My dad bought me the version where all three books were combined in one book, and it’s like 1000+ pages thick! I just can’t get through it….
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Yes, I seem to have a problem with classic books. There’s nothing wrong with them, but I just find modern YA more interesting & easier to read. But, I’ll read this one day. Definitely.
Chasers by James Phelan
Hmmm…I was surprised this turned up on my doorstep. Too bad, I haven’t had the chance to read it, and apparently the third book is out already? Might have to read this one day…but only after I finish all my other books!
Pig Boy by J.C Burke
Another book that I just can’t dedicate any time to…it’s another TBR book but only after I’ve finished all the ones I WANT to read, and have absolutely nothing else to read.
Atonement by Ian McEwan
Err…I really should read this sometime! Unfortuantely, I couldn’t be bothered to finish this after reading the first 3? chapters…but I WILL finish this ONE DAY. Sometime in the near future hopefully…
