BOOKS THAT I ALWAYS MEAN TO READ, BUT NEVER DO

Sometimes I get caught up in the hype, sometimes I miss the boat. But I really do mean to read these some day...
  1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
    Everyone raved about it, I'd missed it the first time, then there was this cute Popular Penguin copy.
  2. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
    I raced out to buy this on the first day of release and that was some years ago now...
  3. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
    I even bought the pretty Vintage cover. I attempted to participate in a read along. I put it on my desk. Yet it still ended up back on the shelf.
  4. Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain
    I love war diaries. So why haven't I grabbed this one?
  5. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
    I don't normally go for this genre, but a lot of people whose opinions I trust love this book, so I got excited and bought it.
