We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.

What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?

 

This is a great question, although it makes me feel like quite the illiterate. These books… you just keep on adding it to your wishlist and you promise it’s going to be the next one, but it never is. I hope to finish at least five of the ten books mentioned below this year! And then make a whole new list next year……….

  • Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
  • The Lord Of The Rings – JRR Tolkien
  • Middlesex – Jeffrey Eugenides
  • Gone With The Wind – Margaret Mitchell
  • The Count Of Monte Cristo – Alexandre Dumus
  • Tender Is The Night – F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • The Namesake – Jhumpa Lahiri
  • Life of Pi – Yann Mertel
  • Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts

I’m going to end this now… I think ten’s enough for the time being :)
