Books I Haven’t Read

After reading this post, you may think I don’t read at all. That’s not the case. I just haven’t gotten around to reading the ones listed below.

Divergent (and Insurgent and Allegiant) by Veronica Roth

I will start Divergent sometime in the future. I have a copy of it on my bookshelf. It’s one of several books I owe but haven’t gotten through yet. I’m not lying.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I saw the cover for “Glass Sword” just now. The two books side by side are gorgeous together. I’m just worried the story might disappoint.

Throne of Glass (series)/A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass

It’ll happen. Galit, thanks for your recommendations. I see them, I do.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

How late am I? To be fair, I think I’d enjoy the novel a lot.

Paper Towns/Looking for Alaska/An Abundance of Katherines, basically anything except The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Isn’t one enough?

Harry Potter (series) by J.K. Rowling

Come to think of it, I haven’t read anything of hers. I know I know. It seems like everyone and their dog has read Harry Potter (or watched the movies). I know enough about the books to get by. I’ve been called Hermione way too many times. I’ve been compared to her as well. I’ve also had people spell my name like that. You have no idea how much that used to frustrate me. And it’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to reading a book with a character who’s similar to me in many ways.

How much respect have you lost for me?

I’m kidding.

Convince me to read any of these, especially Harry Potter, and I’ll send you a copy of my first book. If it ever gets published.

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend. Get some reading done.
