I may or may not have become increasingly ashamed with myself by writing this post.
I have been in denial for FAR TOO LONG about just how many books I have bought (impulse buy, cover desires, etc.) but still have not been bothered to read yet, BUT NO MORE.
Here are some of the books that I own, but still haven’t read…
I’ve talked about this in a past Top Ten Tuesday post.
I bought this book due to all the reviews of people gushing over its greatness, but I have since stumbled upon some less than complimentary opinions on it. It has since made me very wary to read it since I’m no longer sure if it will be something I’ll enjoy – love triangle and info-dumping.
Plus to have to sit and read all my fellow bloggers salivating over Sarah J. Maas in a god-like way would be difficult if I found I didn’t enjoy the book…
My boyfriend gave me his copy on loan years ago and I have still not picked it up (I’m sorry, Ryan. I am the literal worst!). It just seems so intimidating!
Yes, I bought this book solely for that gorgeous cover it has. Let’s not pretend that we don’t all judge books by their covers because we do! I’m not one to read a Western, but this particular book has so many great reviews that I am looking forward to cracking it open. Just after I’ve read everything else first…
Oh my gosh, am I terrible Tolkien fan or what?! I still have not read this. I’ve heard that it is incredibly slow-going with all the oodles and oodles of information that Tolkien put into it and I am just such a slow reader as it is I’m afraid that I’ll end up not liking it and I just want to love everything Tolkien writes???? I’m so conflicted!!
I found this at Barnes and Noble a few months back and it was written by former professor (he was my favorite!) so I just had to grab it, but I still have not read it. Mainly because I forgot quite a bit of what I used to know concerning Ancient Greece (I AM A TERRIBLE STUDENT) so I want to refresh myself on the basics before I dive into this, but clearly I have yet to do this. Hence it still sits on my shelf…
In summary, I am awful. Just plain awful. Why are you still letting me buy more books when I haven’t touched these yet??!!
Are you just as awful as I am with books that have been sitting on your shelf for months (perhaps years)?
Which of these books should I get off my lazy bum and read already?
Fare thee well!
