Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The Once and Future King
This one has been read twice, but I’ve only ever made it halfway through. It’s a good book, but I want to read it consistently, not once every few months.
If you own this book you know how daunting it is. Its basically a brick, put inside of a cinder block. Maybe when I’m 70 I’ll take my first shot at it.
Wizards First Rule
The first book of a giant fantasy series. As exciting as that sounds I can’t afford to buy the rest, and if I read and enjoy the first one I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop myself.
I bought this book because it looked really interesting, but much like Les Miserables, it seems too daunting a task to take on right now.
I actually planned on waiting till the second IT movie came out before I read this for the first time. I really enjoyed the movie so I thought I’d enjoy the movies first and see how different the book was after.
2001 A Space Odyssey
No real reason, just haven’t been in the mood for this one yet. I guess a part of me doesn’t want to be dissapointed by a classic.
Life of Pi
The movie was really good, but I remember the book was a bit tough to get through honestly. It’s been a few years since I tried so I’ll give it another shot soon.
I had to read this book for school one year, but being the good student that I am, I used Spark Notes. Always wanted to get another shot at it, but I haven’t built up the willpower yet.
Collective Work of Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes is cool as hell, but I’m not sure I can read dozens of works all together. I’ve been thinking about reading a story at a time, whenever I have free time. Sort of deal with it in chunks.
Assassin’s Creed Series
I loved the video games, and have a few of the books, but I don’t really want to read these honestly. I mean I’ve played the games so I don’t really need to read the books…but I’ll probably cave and read them eventually.
