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.Tess of the D'Ubervilles- Thomas HardyI don't even know how to say it. I bought it in high school...and I've never cracked it open.
- 2.Ulysses- James JoyceI feel so unlearned.
- 3.1Q84- Haruki MarakamiLiterally halfway through....for four years now
- 4.What is the What- Dave EggersI 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.A Confederacy of Dunces- John Kennedy TooleAnd Nick Offerman is going to be in the movie soon!
- 6.The Dark Tower series- Stephen King
- 7.Lord of the Flies- William GoldingThe movie looks so kick-ass.
- 8.Animal Farm- George OrwellAnd it's like, the shortest book ever written.
- 9.Our Town- Thornton WilderOne 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.Infinite Jest- David Foster Wallace
- 11.Madame Bovary- Gustave Flaubert
- 12.The Magic Mountain- Thomas MannContrary 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.
- 13.Rookie Yearbook 4- ed. Tavi GevinsonI 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.
