On Reading: Ten Books I’ve Never Read

Hi, readers!

Today I’m sharing a different kind of overview. Below are ten books that, somehow, I’ve never read. Many of these are books that most people read in high school but my English classes did not. And others are “classics” that I was never very interested in reading. In either case, I’m sometimes a bit embarrassed to admit these ten books remain unread by me. Please let me know if you really enjoyed any of these and maybe I’ll actually read them!

I have a few comments on a few of these, but now onto the books…

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

I’m reading this one this year, I swear! I featured Jane Eyre in my Tome Topple TBR post.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Not gonna lie, I’ve always been pretty okay with not reading this book.

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I actually tried to read this one. I read something like 20 pages and Tolkien was still describing the road that lead to Bilbo’s home, and I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Night by Elie Wiesel

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

That’s it for today! Have you read any of these books? Which ones do you recommend I finally read?
