"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, our topic is Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read
I just did that when we put together our Summer To Read Lists and incorporated all those.
Which means I have to come up with another twist.
So I thought maybe I should list the books on several top lists that I haven't read and probably never will. They just don't belong to my favourite genres. And I have read plenty of others from that type of books to know I won't enjoy them. Except for "Sophie's Choice". I have seen the film and thought it was the most horrible thing one could ever think of.
So, no pictures of the book covers today.
Brown, Dan "Angels and Demons"
Evans, Nicholas "The Horse Whisperer"
Herbert, Frank "Dune"
Le Carré, John "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"
Le Guin, Ursula K. "The Earthsea" (Trilogy)
Pratchett, Terry "The Discworld" (Series)
Pullman, Philip "His Dark Materials"
Ransome, Arthur "Swallows and Amazons"
Sebold, Alice "The Lovely Bones"
Styron, William "Sophie's Choice"
Tolkien, J.R.R. "The Lord of the Rings"
There are many, many more books that I know I wouldn't read but these are all on "the 100 best books … blah blah … everyone should read … have sold most … blah blah …" lists. I read plenty of them as you can see here.
