Books that I feel like everyone has read but me.10:51 AM
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - That's right, I've never read price and prejudice, probably one of my more embarrassing unread books. Which is a shame because I do actually own this beautiful copy that you see in the image, its leatherbound with yellow edges to the pages and it's gorgeous. I've just never read it! I think that I'm more intimidated by it than anything, I'm worried the language will be difficult to follow, worried that I might find it incredibly boring and be shunned from the bookish corner of the internet... But I will get to it eventually, I promise!
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - Another book that's pretty damn embarrassing that I haven't read it. Probably for similar reasons to Pride and Prejudice to be honest. I don't even really know what Jane Eyre is about so maybe if I looked into that a bit more I may be more inclined to buy it because I don't even own a copy of this one! Which is pretty bad considering you can get classic books really cheap nowadays... I don't really have a valid excuse it's just not something I've ever tried to pick up!
Fahrenheit 451 by Rae Bradbury - I've seen this on a lot of favourites lists and a hell of a lot of instagram posts because of the really pretty cover. I think it's a popular dystopian due to its link with books, I know it's something to do with book burning and firemen, but that is my extent of knowledge for this one.
Emma by Jane Austen - My knowledge of this book is literally only because of clueless (the film)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott. Fitzgerald - Yet another book that everyone raves about which I am yet to finish, I have actually started to read this and I have no idea why I haven't finished it yet as it is an incredibly short book.
Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - What should probably be known as one of the YA classics, that everyone who reads YA has read and I own, the concept of the book is really interesting but still I have yet to pick this one up!
Cinder by Marissa Meyer - A book that I know I would love if I gave it a try, I'm obsessed with fairytales and this is one of those with a twist, I know that I'd enjoy it if I just picked it up but I just haven't yet!
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley - This is one of them books that I don't own, have no idea what it's about but have heard everyone talking about how great of a classic it is, maybe it is something I need to pick up on my trip to London this August!
The Day of The Triffids by John Wyndham - My mum actually was shocked when she saw this on my amazon wishlist, she asked me had I ever read it because it was one of the books she had read in school. I actually haven't and I still am yet to own it, it probably doesn't help that there are some really pretty editions of this book... which to chose?!
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien - I suppose you could say I've started to read this, back when I was in primary school, around 10 years old, on a Friday afternoon we would all go into the same classroom and have a book read out by a teacher, the hobbit was one of them but she never ended up finishing it and we just watched the old original film. I do actually own this one, and I really want to read it... honest!
