30 Day Book Challenge: Book You Tell People You’ve Read But Haven’t
Book You Haven’t Actually Finished
Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak
Ugh. Suicides. Abusive relationships. Affairs. Russian winters. It’s too much.
Emma, Jane Austen
And while there are far too many adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels – please, for the love of God, stop making films based on Jane Austen’s novels – the most recent adaptation of Emma with Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller is so good, I’m actually tempted to read more than the first page of the book.
The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck
I had to read this in school, but my teacher realized we probably didn’t have enough time at the end of the year, so she told us to read certain chapters and watch the movie.
Weirdest thing ever.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare
I chose to take a class over the works of John Milton instead of Shakespeare. Best decision ever, even though I do like Billy.
However, I have in fact read Titus Andronicus. Okay, fine, I skimmed it.
