Top Ten Tuesday – I Should Have Read These 10 Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. And today’s topic is about books by your favorite authors that you should have read already. So here are some books that I have no excuse for not reading, hopefully I’ll get to them soon. Hope you all enjoy!

1. Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell.

For as much as I talk about my love for this author you would think I would have read all of her books. Sadly this is not the case, I still haven’t read her short stories that came out a couple years ago. I hope to get them from my library soon.


2. Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery.

Again, why haven’t I read all of her books? My one of excuse is sometimes it’s hard to find any of her books that aren’t Anne of Green Gables. Libraries don’t usually stock much more than that series.


3. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis.

McGinnis is a new favorite author of mine, so I have more of an excuse as to why I haven’t read more of her books. Still, I do feel like I’m slacking a little.


4. Why Is This Night Different from All Other Nights? by Lemony Snicket.

This is a series I should have finished ages ago, but apparently haven’t? At this point I would have to reread the beginning of it, not that that would be a bad thing, it would just take some time.


5. The Brothers Karamazov by Fydor Dostoevesky.

Despite my extreme love for this author, I’ve only read some of his short stories and one of his novels. I really need to read at least one more of his novels. This one being the first that comes to my mind.


6. American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

I still need to work my way through this book, especially now that I’ve seen the tv show. But also I need to read more of Gaiman in general.


7. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot.

Another example of another I loved, but have only read a few of her works. I loved reading Middlemarch, and now I’d really like to read more.


8. Auguries of Innocence by Patti Smith.

I love Patti Smith’s writing, funnily enough I haven’t really listened to her music. Maybe I should do that the next time I’m reading one of her books.


9. Love and Friendship by Jane Austen.

Shocker I know. It seems improbable even to me that I haven’t read every single written word by Jane Austen. Alas, it’s true. I have not yet read this one, though I shall soon!


10. Ulysses by James Joyce.Β 

Joyce’s works are fascinating pieces of art, though at times confusing. I tried to start this book in high school, but sadly moved before I was able to finish it. I still need to get back to it.


And that’s all for this week! Don’t forget to share your Top Ten Tuesday post with me, I’d love to read it!Β 


  1. Great post! I had a Jane Austen novel on my list as well πŸ™‚ Good luck with Ulysses, I had to read it for university and it was a bit of a mission!
