Each week, The Broke and the Bookish holds Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly book blogging meme. This week, we’re talking about books that we’re not sure we want to read. I’ve chosen ten from my shelf that I vaccilate back and forth between reading and not reading. Some of these I’ve picked up multiple times but either still didn’t start reading them or didn’t finish reading them.
1. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Susanna Clarke
2. The Palace of Illusions, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
3. The Wanting Seed, Anthony Burgess
4. Out of Oz, Gregory Maguire
5. The Boy Detective Fails, Joe Meno
6. A Heart-Breaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers
7. Atonement, Ian McEwan
8. Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace
9. A Long Fatal Love Chase, Louisa May Alcott
10. Blood Meridian, Cormac McCarthy
Maybe one day I’ll finish one, if not all, of these. But we’ll see. Are there books here that you love? Books that you hate? What books do you tend to pick up and then put back down?
