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
    F0c081c6 d126 4896 925e 96e9095234e0
    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
    Af6aaafd d4ce 48e7 983b e4208d4fd7c3
    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
    E1a345f1 c2f9 4057 8221 1efcbaf84272
    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
    84068582 21ae 46de b0ad 265138083165
    I love war diaries. So why haven't I grabbed this one?
  5. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
    450a429d 9fe0 49e4 ad5f 50fbdb9ac132
    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.
