*Top Ten Tuesday* Books I Can't Believe I Read (Jan 30)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Joood - Hooligan of Platypire reviews bossed me into doing this, so I guess this is a thing I do now. 

This weeks theme is books I can't believe I read. I could see this topic going one of two ways. Either these are going to be books that I'm kind of ashamed to admit reading or books that are super impressive to have read. Now I have absolutely zero shame about the books I choose to read, but I also don't feel super accomplished by having read massive involved books either, but I think it'll be easier to list books that one would be inclined to brag about reading rather than trying to drum up a measure of shame about books, so that's the route I'm taking.

So here are ten(ish) books that I'd brag about reading.

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Dreams from my Father by Barack Obama

So what are some books that you would brag about reading? - Katie

  1. I pretty much did books I can't believe I read for negative reasons so I can't add much to your list. If I had to, I'd day Little Women because I loved it so much I read it twice which never happens to me.

    Great list and you should be proud you read many of these!

  2. To be honest most of the books I could "brag" about reading, I didn't enjoy!

  3. There are some classics on this list that I've thought about reading, but never have. My record with classics is not good, sadly.
