Top Ten Tuesday (#4)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme held by The Broke and Bookish that asks readers to tell their top ten picks for the given list each week.

This week's topic: Top Ten books I HAD to buy, but are still sitting on my shelf unread

I don't really have a ton of these, but I do have enough unread classics laying around that someone should probably shoot me for my negligence.

1. The Riddle by Alison Croggon- I read the first in this series, The Naming, dying because I loved it so much, and still have never gotten around to reading the next one.
2. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen- I absolutely loved Pride and Prejudice.  When I finished reading it, slightly less than a year ago, I immediately had to start Sense and Sensibility.  I bought it, made it about 10 pages through, then quit because I was bored.  I still haven't gotten around to reading it.
3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte- Sorry, guys.  I was on a British lit kick when I bought all this stuff. But I had just seen the movie (my parents got it for me for Christmas), and so of course, I had to read the book! But I never got around to it.
4. The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart- Ok, so in addition to British lit, I had a pretty big interest-in-King-Arthur kick when I saw some documentary or movie or something about him on History channel.  I can't really remember what it was that I saw, but I immediately had to go out and by a book on King Arthur.  What did it do, however? It sat on my shelf.  And it's been sitting there since a summer or two ago.  I feel kind of bad for it.
5. The Two Towers/ The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien- Oh, this is by far the worst.  I hide my face in shame at the fact that I haven't read these yet.  I read the first book, and it took me an eternity to do so, and so I just never started the second two.  They're still sitting on my shelf, begging for me to read them.  I really need to get to that.

Ok, so that is my list of bookish shame.  What about you guys?

Peace out Girl Scouts,
