Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today I am talking about some books that it seems everyone has read that I have yet to.
Throughout school, I always had English teachers who were ~hip~ and ~cool~ and wanted to ensure the youth actually read the assigned books. This meant we read a lot of fun popular books, which was great, but it also meant that there are a lot of books that are books people always say “everyone has to read this in high school!” and I never had to read it.
So I thought today it could be fun to talk about some of those books! These are also all books that I plan on reading at some point.
The Giver by Lois Lowry: I know, I know. Literally everyone and their parents have read this book. But I never had to for school, so I still haven’t. It’s super short though, so I’m hoping to read it soon.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: the real shame here: I haven’t even seen any of the adaptations. Like, I literally know next to nothing about this book except that Elizabeth and Darcy get together in the end, which is all that really matters I think.
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee: once again, I never had to read this for school, so I never read it. But I know a ton of people who really loved it, despite needing to read it for school. So I definitely want to at some point.
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank: I’M SORRY, OKAY. I haven’t read this. I know literally everyone else has. It will happen some day, I promise.
The Lord of the Flies by William Golding: I know the general premise of this book, but I haven’t actually read it. I definitely want to at some point, though.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier: but it will happen soon!!!! I really want to get to this ASAP, and I got a physical copy for Christmas last year, so hopefully soon!
1984 by George Orwell: okay this book on my Goodreads is marked as “read”, but it’s actually a DNF. I tried reading it, for fun, when I was like 15 or something. I hated it. So I never actually read this book.
So, those are some books that I haven’t read that everyone else has. Have you read these? Are there any books everyone has read that you haven’t? Which of these should I read first? Let me know!
