BOOKS, RANKED BY MY LEVEL OF GUILT FOR NOT HAVING READ THEM 📚

Inspired by @LizDawson --Ranging from never cracked open to halfway thru. Ever get that unfulfilled feeling??
  1. 1.
    Tess of the D'Ubervilles- Thomas Hardy
    I don't even know how to say it. I bought it in high school...and I've never cracked it open.
  2. 2.
    Ulysses- James Joyce
    I feel so unlearned.
  3. 3.
    1Q84- Haruki Marakami
    Literally halfway through....for four years now
  4. 4.
    What is the What- Dave Eggers
    I think I haven't been past page 33 for eight years. He's still on the floor. Does he spend the whole book on the floor?
  5. 5.
    A Confederacy of Dunces- John Kennedy Toole
    And Nick Offerman is going to be in the movie soon!
  6. 6.
    The Dark Tower series- Stephen King
  7. 7.
    Lord of the Flies- William Golding
    The movie looks so kick-ass.
  8. 8.
    Animal Farm- George Orwell
    And it's like, the shortest book ever written.
  9. 9.
    Our Town- Thornton Wilder
    One of my sixth grade teachers was so impressed when she saw me reading it at that age. Well guess what, Mrs. Malone --I never finished it.
  10. 10.
    Infinite Jest- David Foster Wallace
  11. 11.
    Madame Bovary- Gustave Flaubert
  12. 12.
    The Magic Mountain- Thomas Mann
    Contrary to popular belief, not about a Disneyland ride but about the...struggles of living/dying with a tubercular body? Don't know past page 33...seems to be a brick wall of a page number for me.

    Rookie Yearbook 4- ed. Tavi Gevinson
    I know, it's like the hippest thing for adults to be into this. And Tavi Gevinson and I are from the same hometown. But confession: every time I try to read it, I fear I can't relate. And that scares me.
