This week was a freebie sort-of. We were supposed to select a topic from the past that we missed. I decided to write about…
Books I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Read
The Anne books by L.M. Montgomery
I read Anne of Green Gables, and I listened to Anne of the Island once, but I really need to read this whole series. I loved the mini-series, but to be a true fan, I should read the books.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Again, I love the movie (the Winona Rider version), but I’ve never read the book. I’m an imposter!
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I love the musical of Les Miserables as I’ve written about before, but I have never read the book. And sadly, I may never read it since it’s super long, but I’d like to have read it, ya know?
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen / Emma by Jane Austen
I have only read some of Jane Austen’s novels. As much as I love the stories – based on the movies of course – I have never read Emma or Northanger Abbey. I don’t even know the story of Northanger Abbey because I’ve never even seen a movie version.
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
I love this show, and I really should read the books, but I haven’t. I checked out the CD Audio book of A Game of Thrones from the library, but I was intimidated by the length, and I returned it almost immediately without even trying to listen to it. It’s just such a big commitment!
What books haven’t you read? Any of these same books?
