BOOKS I'M NOT DONE READING YET

I flit between books like there's no tomorrow. I'll leave one for sometimes a year. And pick right back up where I was.
  1. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
    It's thick. It's translated from French and you know everybody is gonna die. So I usually listen to the soundtrack and pretend I'm actually capable of hitting some of those notes
  2. Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
    Once again translated from French and I end up listening to the soundtrack. And my brain pictures the Phantom as both Gerard Butler and Lon Chaney Sr. And if I think about Lon Chaney too much my nose starts hurting. So I watch the musical on YouTube because RAUL.
  3. Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
    Harry Potter is my jam. Local British politics are not. I own it and it's displayed with my Harry Potter books. But omg.
  4. Life and Death By Stephenie Meyer
    I started reading it because it's a comedy gold mine, but I can't get through more than two pages before I freak out and can't handle how bad it is. I will probably drink a bunch of wine and plow through it one weekend when I'm bored.
  5. Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
    Outlander was so good! And I love Brianna and Roger, but i get hung up on Jamie and Claire's boat trip to France. Every. Time.
  6. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
    Aziz is hilarious. So is my lack of dating prospects.
  7. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
    I'm pretty sure I'm still on the dedication page if I'm being 💯% honest.
  8. The Girl from Krakow by Alex Rosenberg
    Started it in the doctors office and while I love it. TV and then football has distracted me.
  9. Big Bill by H.A. Branham
    The biography of the founder of NASCAR. I got super into it and then I watched the Tim Richmond 30 for 30 and I started crying everywhere and I had to watch the 2013 Iron Bowl to cheer up.
  10. A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin
    So many characters and Khal Drogo is dead so is it worth it?
  11. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
    I've trying to read it since it came out and then I realize that I like all my brain cells and stop.
  12. Anne of the Island by LM Montgomery
    I'm always in the middle of this book. It's in my top 10. Because Gilbert Blythe.
  13. Serena by Ron Rash
    I have the movie cover version and Bradley Cooper is just too pretty not to look at. And since I haven't read the book I keep having to put off watching the movie
  14. A Midsummer Night's Dream by Billy S
    My favorite Shakespeare but it takes considerable effort whenever I start reread it. I aspire to be Hermia but alas I'm always Helena.
  15. Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw
    I started it while Selfie was on air. Then it got cancelled so I stopped.
  16. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
    It's the first science fiction! And written by a woman! And it put me to sleep!
  17. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
    I got lost in a Wikipedia cycle of trying to find a good movie adaptation and the next thing I knew it'd been months since I had read anything in it.
  18. Anna Karinina by Leo Tolstoy
    I decided Annastasia was a better use of my time. Have you heard? There's a rumor in St. Petersburg?
  19. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
    I get irritated that Rochester had a secret wife locked up the whole time.
  20. Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn
    Read it a whopping 10 years ago and started again after someone showed me a picture of Cumberbatch photoshopped as Thrawn.
  21. Emma by Jane Austen
    I love clueless. And pride and prejudice. I have tried so many times. But alas I fail.
  22. Jurassic Park by Michael Criton
    For a person who took the least amount science possible in college this is too much science. Maybe if I had seen the movie I'd be motivated to read.
  23. Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
    This was one of my favorite stories when I was a kid. I read the illustrated version constantly when I was 5 or 6. And Milady is such a badass. I love her.
  24. A Sherlock Holmes book Arthur Conan Doyle
    I have the complete Sherlock set in my kindle library. If I opened it I probably wouldn't even know which book was in. I
  25. All In by Gene Chizik
    Bought in 2012 when the season still had promise. And then the season of tears happened and I couldn't read about 2010. It hurt too much and I'm still bitter about that (2012). Not a single SEC win? None???
