This week’s Booking Through Thursday question:
“We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.
What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?”
I… don’t know how to answer this question. Because, you know, I haven’t read these books I haven’t read. And previous “awesome books” I’ve tried to read (and even finished!) were just so awful to me that I couldn’t believe anyone would recommend them! Twilight and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, I’m looking at you.
But there are those truly awesome books… In the last year I’ve read a lot of great books, like The Sparrow, In the Woods and The Likeness, everything Jasper Fforde’s written, and Elantris, that I probably wouldn’t have read except that someone told me they were worth a read. Oh, and The Book Thief, which I’m reading right now and which is wonderful.
So you tell me. What are the best books out there that I should have read already?
