Good early evening my lovely fellow bloggers. I am having a relax this evening before a days hard slog in the library tomorrow (working on an essay as always) and thought I would write a new post for you. So the question today is a book that you have wanted to read for a long time but haven’t yet. There are many books that come under this category for me. This is because there are a number of reasons I haven’t read a book; maybe I have attempted to read the book and didn’t like it so I need to try it again, or a book that I have been meaning to read but haven’t had the time to give it the attention it deserves, so once again I haven’t read it! This is (again) a difficult question!
One of the books I am desperate to read is 1984 by George Orwell; I have not picked up the book let alone read it however I have heard incredible reviews and many gasps when I tell people I haven’t read it. I think the main problem is that I’m worried that if I do not have enough time I will not be able to get the full experience. However, it means that I keep putting it off, and then putting it off and still I haven’t read it however I will! (One day)
Another book I have been meaning to read for a while is The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. The main reason for reading this book is due to the mixed reviews I have heard about it. Some reviewers have argues that it did not meet expectations which goes against personal reviews that I have heard. It also interests me because I am yet to see the film. One of the main rules for me is if I am going to see the film and I want to read the book I will purposely read the book first, (it’s a personal preference!) For me comparing the film and the book means reading it first! So that’s why it’s a book that I need to read but have not done so yet!
