There are books you finish, there are books you put in your DNF pile and there are books you just put on “pause” or on “hold”.
Sometimes when I start a book I immediately stop reading it. Not because it is bad but because I’m a big mood reader. I start these books and just end up putting them on my “pause” pile. Unfortunately this pile is getting bigger and I would like to read all of the titles but I’m just wary of starting some of them. So please give me reasons to read these beauties! There would also be a poll at the end of this post to vote which book I should prioritize!
First up is A Forest of A Thousand Lanterns. I got this from a subscription box last year. To be honest I’m not a fan of the cover because I’m scared of snakes. I keep hearing it’s an anti-hero kind of story which is super interesting but it’s usually a hit or miss with fantasy for me.
Most of my real life bookish friends have read Jane Eyre but I still haven’t. I’m just intimidated to read classics even though I heard this one is pretty easy to understand.
Back in 2015 I was so keen in reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I started collecting the books but I only own books 1 and 2. This book is one I’m intimidated to read. I feel like I just wouldn’t understand it. Maybe I should start with the movies??? I’ve watched it before but thanks to my memory I forgot all about it.
I was almost halfway to finishing To Kill A Mockingbird last 2015 (I guess 2015 was the year of attempting to read classics) and I just stopped. I guess I was just craving for Young Adult then.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin really intrigued me back in college. Again, I’m pretty intimidated by this book. I want to read it but I think it will take me a long time to finish it and right now I’m just all about reading all the books. (For reasons I can’t quite understand, WordPress is showing an HTTP error message when I attempt to upload the book cover even though I already tried other versions of the book.)
Have you read any of these? Which do you HIGHLY recommend? Or maybe you want to start one of these books too?
