Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.

Here are the top ten books I feel as though everyone has read but me (including series):

  1. Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
  1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  1. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier 
  1. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 
  1. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll 
  1. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  1. Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson
  1. The Princess Bride by William Goldman  
  1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis 
  1. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. 


  1. I don't know what you usually read (first time here, followed the link on Mr Linky), but your #8 is one of the funniest books ever. The movie, too.

  2. Thank you for making me feel not alone in the HP delinquency. I feel like a bit of a freak! I just read P&P two summers ago and LOVED IT. Bump that one up. Also, The Hunger Games...it's awesome! And I loved Rebecca and the author wrote another book called My Cousin Rachel that I loved equally as much.

    Here's my top ten books that I feel like everyone has read if you feel like moseying on over to my blog!

  3. I haven't read Forbidden, either. I second the comment about Princess Bride being a great story - and great movie!

  4. I hear mixed things about the Princess Bride - that lovers of the movie may be disappointed with the book (which is unusual since it's often the other way around). I read The Girls with the Dragon Tattoo but don't feel compelled to read the rest. I didn't think it was THAT great.

  5. Thanks for stopping by, everyone!

    I saw The Princess Bride film, but haven't read the book. I really enjoyed the film, so I will try to get to the book some day.

  6. I have read 4 of your 10. Most of the others are on my TBR list.

  7. We have two books in common for this week's list--otherwise some of your not-reads are among my favorite re-reads!

  8. 1, 2, 4, 5, 9 and 10...ALL AMAZING! Forbidden nearly made me cry though..great list!

  9. Wow, a list where I have actually read some of the books! Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia and Hunger Games are favorites of mine. I have Pride and Prejudice, Rebecca, Alice in Wonderland, and The Princess Bride on my TBR list.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
