YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK.
And it's not just a regular book, it's THE book. It's The Perks of Being a Wallflower or Game of Thrones. It's the book that everyone in the entire universe is suddenly reading and obsessed with and you still haven't gotten around to it. And oh, the SHAME when you have to admit to the person asking about your opinion that you haven't actually read it yet. But you will someday! Eventually! "Are you sure I can't recommend Harry Potter to you again?!?!" ... And suddenly you've lost all credibility. Like, apparently HP is something kids have been reading for a while now? What?
I am slowly (slowwwwly) coming to terms with the fact that I will never have read ALL THE BOOKS. But there are some books that I would very, very, very much like to read before the blogging authorities snatch away my membership card for not reading those things that seem to fuel so many peoples' passion.
Books that I will one day read. No, seriously!:
1. Anything by Melina Marchetta
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
3. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
4. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
5. Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys
6. Fire and Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
... and okay, I'm starting to scare myself with the number of ideas that are jumping out at me. We'll just leave it at 6, alright? ;)
