I present to you, books I've yet to finish/read (HOARDER, HOARDERRR):
I bought Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar back in 2010.. a mistake since that year was one of the most miserable times in my life. I've yet to re-open the book.
Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk.... I don't even know why I bought this. Any taker?
I admit, the only reason why I bought Gut Symmetries by Jeanette Winterson was because I saw it being quoted on Tumblr (again, bought this back in 2010) & fell in love with it. "Do you fall in love often? Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.” ♥
The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was an impulse buy. I bought it over the internet, and was shocked when I got it because it's sooo thick & heavy (lol no pun intended chos). But duh obviously it's going to be thick - it's the freaking compilation of all the stories of Sherlock Holmes!
A local blogger posted a photo of The Greek Myths by Robert Graves on her Instagram account, and looking at the front cover, I honestly thought it was in comic book form. Sad to say, it isn't. Sighhh.
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler is the MOST DISAPPOINTING Y.A. NOVEL EVER. What a freaking bore. The protagonist just goes on and on and on about shit I don't care for. I still have 3/4s of it to go through... do. not. want. I bought John Green's Let It Snow last Summer - I'm just waiting for the ~right time to read it. Like, come this December.. or when it gets just a little colder.
I was one of those people who used to preorder Harry Potter books months in advance, then devour it the day I finally get it. Then it was announced that JK Rowling will release a new book called The Casual Vacancy.. being the fantard that I am, I bought it. Two pages in, I realized it's too mature for me heh. :P I guess I'll just read Cuckoo's Calling..
Do you hoard books?
