Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week I get a free pick of past topics to cover, so I went with the Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read Them But Me. There's a lot of series on this list.
1. 50 Shades of Grey
I have no intention of reading it either and I'm fine being the only person on the planet who hasn't read it.
2. The Lord of The Rings Trilogy
I come from a family who really like The Lord of The Rings. Me? I tried to get through The Hobbit when I had to read it for a uni module and all I felt was hungry. And bored.
3. Any of the Discworld Novels
I bought a lot of these for my BF, and a lot of my friends are Pratchett fans but the series has never really appealed to me.
4. Outlander Series
I think I had read about this series in a Waterstone's Quarterly magazine article yonks ago. Exploring other pages it seems a lot of bloggers love it. I'm thinking of maybe giving the first book a go in the summer but I'm not completely sure as of yet.
5. Game of Thrones
See a trend forming this week? I just don't think I'm into/have no want to start epic fantasy books.
6. Any of Cassandra Clare's books
Mum bought some of the Mortal Instruments books a couple of years ago, and they've been laying around the house ever since. I'm going to be honest: I judged those books by their covers and I was not interested. I sort of wish I had gotten past my book cover snobbery and given them a read as plenty of bloggers recommend the series. Plus now there's going to be a film, my mum's copies have mysteriously disappeared...to my sister's room from where they will never return.
7. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
This is everywhere at the moment. I keep meaning to order a copy from the library, but I keep seeing other books that I want more.
8. Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle
This year, I swear!
9. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird is my mum's favourite book, and I'm always wary about reading books that I've heard is fantastic all my life without knowing first-hand (see Lord of The Rings).
10. Good Omens - Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
I am reading this by the end of the year. I repeat: I am reading this by the end of the year...
