I’m a heavy procrastinator, alright. Reading books is not an exemption. Here’s a list of books I’ve been meaning to read. Every year these books manage to get a slot on my TBR.
Anna Karenina and War and Peace Leo Tolstoy
These two masterpieces are really difficult to read. Not only they are long, they also involve characters whose names that are hard to pronounce and remember.
1984 George Orwell
You can read anything about 1984 when you Google dystopian novels. Before I even read it, I already know that the protagonist betrayed the woman he loves and chose Big Brother. What a spoiler! It was inspired from the Russian novel We by Yevgeny Zamyatin which I’ve read just a few months ago. Going through a similar plot does seem quite enjoyable, so I’ve decided (again) to read it next year.
The Stand Stephen King
The Stand is Stephen King’s longest novel. It’s a lame excuse but I’m putting off reading it because of its massiveness. I’ve read It in July and while I was reading in bed, I accidentally dropped it on my face. Imagine how painful that is.
Artemis Fowl series Eoin Colfer
Artemis Fowl is my ultimate favorite children’s fantasy series. Sorry, Potterheads! Artemis is a boy genius criminal mastermind who steals from fairies. Each book is fast-paced, funny and heartwarming. In each installment you will witness how he grows older, wiser and kinder. Like finishing other good books, completing this series might feel like losing a friend.
BBC’s Big Read Top 100
This might be a little ambitious but for many years now, I’ve been ticking off titles from BBC Top 100 books. So far, I’ve finished 31. What I’ve been avoiding are the difficult and long ones.
