    I read TFiOS during the hype and I wish I hadn’t. I bought it because everyone else was reading it and I didn’t get the hype around it to be perfectly honest. Yes it’s a lovely story and is really well written but it’s one of those generic YA love stories with a gloomy twist.

    Enjoy it though!

    I’ve been putting off reading Joseph Boyden’s The Orenda since it was published, but it’s now on my reading group’s list for November, so I am going to have take the plunge. I expect I shall review it sometime between then and now.

    I’ve been putting of Persuasion by Jane Austen. I mostly read in the train and it’s so difficult to concentrate! I’m sure it’ll be impossible to read anything even remotely classic-y. I’ll wait for vacations, I guess.

    Ironically, 1984 is sitting on my shelf as well. That and Lord of the Flies are both on my TBR.
    I finally caved in to TFIOS and ended up loving it. Green has a great prose style that has more humor than you expect it to. It more was entertaining and fun than I anticipated.

      We should definitely get round to reading it I feel! Someone told me once that it changed their life reading that book and since then it has completely intimidated me. I also have a terrible habit of ignoring books that have a certain amount of hype around them. I missed LOTR, The twighlight series, I eventually read the fifty shades books, well two and a half, but I put them off for so long! I will start reading it soon though…maybe

    Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Supposedly it is a classic but I can’t get past the weird flowery language to stick with it. (And I normally love weird flowery language, just it’s too weird and flowery)

    I’ve been putting off reading most classics – pre 1900. I love a good modern classic, but there is something about older classics that scares me into not picking them up…even though I have SO many different ones on my book shelf.
