Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I know. It’s crazy that I haven’t read this one yet. I mean, I have a degree in literature AND I love the movie.
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
This has been on my TBR since high school. I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only just recently purchased a copy.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I can’t believe I didn’t immediately pick this up when it came out. I was at just the right age to enjoy it, but I was also in my “I’m-too-cool-to-read-that-sort-of-book stage.” Stupid, I know.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
I REALLY want to read this one, but I can never find a reasonably priced copy.
The Alchemist by Pualo Coelho
I’ll get around to it eventually. Maybe.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I feel like I have to watch it because of the mini-series (which, by the way, I haven’t watched). But honestly, I’m still a little over dystopian fiction, so I think I still need to wait to pick this one up.
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
I love satire, and I’ve had this on my list since I was in high school. Granted, I didn’t have much free time in high school or in college, but still…you’d think I would’ve read this by now.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
This came out when I was in elementary school, and I had heard about it all throughout high school. Everyone still tells me I need to read it. I usually don’t like realistic YA, but I’ll eventually get around to this.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
This has also been on my TBR since high school, and I’ve had a copy of it on my shelf forever, but I just haven’t been in the mood to read it.
The Autumn of the Patriarch by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I purchased this in college, read the first chapter, decided to go out, and never picked it up again. But I really do want to read it. Like I said, I was busy in college.
