Top Ten Books I HAD to have (No really, I did!) that I haven’t gotten around to reading.


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and Bookish.

Today’s theme is the Top Ten Books I had to buy but haven’t quite got around to reading. Oops.


10. The Age of Innocence, Edith Wharton

9. The Epic of Gilgamesh

8. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

7.  The Complete Book of Heraldry, Stephen Slater

6. Makers of Ancient Strategy, Hanson

5. The Song of Troy, Colleen McCulloch

4. The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet, Colleen McCulloch

3. Blossoms and Shadows, Lian Hearn

2. Bendable Learnings, Don Watson

1. War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy

Many of these I’ve started but only glanced at before putting down again. My mission this year, if I choose to accept it, read some of these patiently waiting books.

    Of all these, I’ve only read War and Peace. I loved it. But it is a bit intimidating! I really want to read The Age of Innocence. I keep hearing so much about it, it sounds like such a fascinating book with a huge influence on later culture.

    I’m really intimidated by War and Peace, so someday, I hope I am not intimidated enough to actually read it. The Age Of Innocence seems really familiar, so I should probably get around to read that one someday. Great list!

    Of everything on your list, I’ve only read The Age of Innocence, which was a sad but beautiful story. I’ve never read War and Peace and don’t know if that one will ever make my to-be-read list — perhaps the Cliff Notes… Great list!
