I stole this idea from Fragments of Fiction, one of the most beautiful blogs I feast my eyes on everyday. She confessed her dirty little secret of the books she hasn't read but probably should have and I loved the idea. We all have books that we haven't read that might shock some people (can you believe she hasn't read the Harry Potters?!) but does it follow that we should be ashamed? So here's some of the books I haven't read that may, or may not shock you.
I have read the first one but I never read the rest. For shame, I know!
Not only have I not read these? I don't like them?! K, I know you're thinking, how can she not like them if she hasn't read them. Good question. I tried reading them and just couldn't do it! I hated that goody goody Mary and, all in all, I just got bored with them.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery
The only one I've read was Anne's House of Dreams, and that was only by request of a friend. I LOVE the movies but I just could never get into the books.
Yeah, I think it's no surprise that since I hated the rest I just gave up on this series. But don't you worry, lots of people felt it was there duty to fill me in on what happened. In detail! Hey, at least I didn't read the end of it right when in came out just so I could ruin it for all the fans who were frantically reading it like one of my friends did.
So, some of you might not have read this one either, but you wouldn't believe the flack I get for not having read this one. Sheesh! I have it on my TBR list. Give me a break!
I could go on and on, especially with the classics. There is a lot I haven't read, yet, and I may never read. So how about you? What have you not read that might be shocking? And is it really all that bad of a thing to NOT have read something?
