Top Ten Tuesday Freebie - Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read

So, this week on Top Ten Tuesday it's a freebie - I took this as an opportunity to go back and play catch up because there are quite a few lists I wasn't around to participate in.  This one sounded like all sorts of fun.
1. Harry Potter
I know, can you even believe it?  Am I the only human being in the world who hasn't read any of these?  And, don't get me wrong, it isn't even that I don't think I would like them.  I just haven't read them.  If you want, try and convince me why this book or series should be next on my reading list.






2. Gone with the Wind
I have seen this movie numerous times and just have never picked up the book.  I love the movie, and almost always the book is better.  So, I have no reason for explaining why I haven't read this one.








3. The Time Traveler's Wife
This book has been on my bookshelf for years and I just haven't picked it up.  I really need to, because everyone I know that has read it loves it.












4. Water for Elephants
Another book sitting on my bookshelf staring at me...wow, I really have to start reading some of these, lol!












5. Catch-22
I am going to make a vow to read classics every third or fourth book.  There are quite a few of them I want to read and I think it might be the only way to get it done.









6. The Bell Jar
This rapidly jumped to the top of my list a few weeks back - I am hoping to get to it by early next week.












7. Rebecca
This one has been haunting me for quite some time - maybe after The Bell Jar it will be next.













8. A Game of Thrones
Seeing as I love the series on tv so much, and that I own all of these, I'm not sure what the delay is.  Maybe the immense size of them?












9. The Fault in Our Stars
This is another one that jumped to the top of my list - I don't own it yet but hope to soon as I REALLY want to read it.










10. Delirium
Another one I don't own (yet) but is high on my list of books to read.

  1. I've read most of the books on this list and I just have to say, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? You MUST read H.P. You just must. GONE WITH THE WIND and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS are two more of my all-time favorite books. I haven't read REBECCA either, but I really, really need to.

    Fun list!

    1. I know - I'm hanging my head in shame. If you ever want to do a read-a-long for Rebecca let me know, it might get my butt in gear. Thank for visiting!

    1. I think The Bell Jar is next...that may change tomorrow. I am really good at saying a book is next and replacing it with something else that catches my eye.

  5. You're not the only person on the planet who hasn't read Harry Potter yet, neither have I! But one day! Great list.
