Book Guilt #2


I have book guilt again.

You may remember a post I did in January where I confessed to not having read some of the most-loved and talked about YA books, aka. your children. I caused a bit of a shizstorm and it became one of my most-read posts, so I thought it was about time that I owned up to my crime again and shared some more books that I really should have read, but haven't. Please don't disown me...
  1. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
  2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  3. Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman
  4. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
  5. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
  6. City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
  7. Room by Emma Donoghue
  8. One Day by David Nicholls
  9. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
  10. Divergent by Veronica Roth
You think that's bad? You haven't seen my Kindle...*head desk*.  There are 182 unread books on there and only 24 read ones. Terrible, I know. I'm not going to list every book on my Kindle so here are some of the most shameful, unread books:

  1. Life Of Pi by Yann Martel
  2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  3. A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (the full series)
  4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  5. Marley and Me by John Grogan
  6. A Hat Full Of Sky by Terry Pratchett
  7. 1984 by George Orwell
  8. The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan
  9. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  10. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
You have my permission to shake your head in disappointment. :( As you'll already know, I am a massive bookworm and I read an awful lot but for some reason, I never seem to get round to reading the books everyone tells me to read. If a book is hyped up and raved about, I'm often scared to read it in case I'm let down and it doesn't meet my expectations. I'm going to try harder than ever to get these books read. Do you have book guilt?

Lots of love, Cat

    I can't believe you haven't read Divergent!
    *flings nearby magazine at wall*
    that has to be some sort of crime... then again my sister hasn't read it either. I hope you do get a chance to read it, and the rest of those awesome books (especially the book thief).

  2. Okay... um... welll... some of those are understandable.... BUT YOU MUST READ WUTHERING HEIGHTS AND 1984 BECAUSE THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND SPECIAL AND JUST DOWNRIGHT AMAZING! :) AND THE BOOK THIEF IS INCREDIBLE TOO!

    Also Attachments, Life of Pi, Pride and Prejudice (The Lizzie Bennet Diaries captured it so accurately), The Northern Lights and Divergent deserve to be read.

    Delirium on the other hand, it was so hyped that I was scared to read it... and then I just didn't see what all the fuss was about.xD

    1. I will! Usually it's Divergent and Delirium that everyone tells me to read so your comment was a nice change, haha :D xx

  3. I have a feeling I said this last time you did this post but you have to read Divergent! It is one of my favourite books ever :) I have read One Day too which is also amazing, although quite hard to get into at the beginning, but well worth it. City Of Ashes is also great, I'm currently reading City Of Glass. I have to admit though, I haven't read alot of these which I should have, so you're not the only one! Great Post xoxo

    1. I've tried to read One Day before and didn't get into it. :( I'm definitely going to try again though and stick with it this time. Thanks! xx

  4. You have to read Divergent, it's one of my favourites - I've read it at least 5 times. You really need to read it, I promise you won't be disappointed :) xxx

  5. When I looked at the photograph I laughed because all of the books there I own or really want to get at some point. I'm currently reading Starter for Ten (which is amazing!) and One Day is on my shelf so I hope that maybe I'll like that just as much. I couldn't get into Warm Bodies and Divergent, Attachments, Delirium and The Book Thief are on my Christmas/Birthday wishlist but from what I've read of Divergent whilst in Waterstones it is incredible. - Always love your book themed posts :)

    1. I'm in a reading slump at the moment too - it sucks! I already follow your blog, hehe. :P xx

  8. I have barely read any of those books either, though I do own them! I read One Day over the Summer and I loved it - partially because part of it was set in Scotland! I didn't get all the hype for Divergent though, I didn't enjoy it very much! :/ x

    1. I'm really looking forward to reading One Day - the film was great and I like the way David Nicholls writes. ^_^ Shame about Divergent! xx
