Take Ten: Books I can't believe I read
1. War and Peace
Honestly, I had too much time on my hands when I was in high school, so I decided to see how many classics I could knock out. I still can't believe I read this one.;)
2. Space Trilogy
I love C.S. Lewis, but this was just tough to read!
3. Anna and the French Kiss
I'm sorry, I know a lot of people like this series, but I barely made it through book one! I felt bad for Ellie.
4. Vanishing Point
I probably wouldn't of read this book, had I not been into the series already, since it was heartbreaking!
5. Wives and Daughters
Don't get me wrong, it's a great story that I enjoyed, but no one told me how it being unfinished would leave me feeling at odds for days after coming to the end!
Honestly, I should probably re-read this one, since I remember really liking it despite the fact that "Another Lady" finished it. I thought it was well done at the time.
Just wasn't my thing.
This one was fine, but it really just made me want to back and read the original story.;)
10. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
This one was one for college Lit, otherwise I wouldn't of read it.

WOW! Good for you having War & Peace on your books-I've-read list. I like the recent mini series, but aside from this, I don't see myself ever reading the book. :)ReplyDelete
I may have to check out the mini series, to refresh my memory on the story.Delete
If I had to do it again, I probably wouldn't.;)
I can't believe that I've read Frankenstein either. I'm super impressed that you've read War & Peace!ReplyDelete
I need to go back and watch it now, to remember the story.;) I think my brother liked it more, with all the battles.Delete
I always feel proud of myself when I read and finish a classic book, especially one everyone thinks is a toughy. My TTTReplyDelete
I know! It's been some time since I read a classic.Delete
I've read Frankenstein a few times now, and each time I end up liking it much more than the time before. If it hadn't been assigned reading at uni last month, it would have been on my list for sure!ReplyDelete
I can't believe ANYONE has read War and Peace, and I bow down to you for managing it. I've got a copy, but the likelihood is that it's just going to gather dust on my shelf until I give up and donate it.
Here's my TTT.
I may need to give Frankenstein another chance then.;)Delete
Some books just make us look smarter by having them there.;) Atlas Shrugged is one of those. lol.
You read War and Peace? I am amazed!ReplyDelete

Ha, thanks. I was massively bored.;)Delete
I'm amazed, too, ILoveHeartlandX. I've never been able to finish War and Peace.ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I did it when I was younger and had the time.;)Delete
I did love Anna and the French Kiss, but that was my first real Young Adult Contemporary Romance, and I actually really enjoyed Perkin's lastest book, which was a horror novel. And it took some wonderfully narrated audiobooks to get me to finish Dracula and other classics- but I've read worse. Sadly. ;)ReplyDelete
I may have to look into her recent book, since it looks like it might be interesting.Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
