According to Goodreads, the books that have been on my to-read list the longest are:

  1. The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, by Philip Pullman
  2. Graceling, by Kristin Cashore
  3. Farenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury
  4. Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  5. Fablehaven, by Brandon Mull
  6. The Forest of Hands and Teeth, by Carrie Ryan
  7. Nocturnes, by John Connolly
  8. The Eyre Afair, by Jasper Fforde
  9. Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman
  10. Daphne, by Justine Picardie

I’m not even sure I still want to read all of these.  I can’t even for the life of me remember adding ‘Daphne’.  What is that? And honestly, I don’t know that I have much interest in ‘Farenheit 451’ anymore, except that it’s one of those books that EVERYONE reads.

If I were to have made this list without checking Goodreads I would have included:

  • The Child Thief, by Brom
  • The City of Dreaming Books, by Walter Moers
  • The Library at Mount Char, by Scott Hawkins
  • Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton
  • The Wide Sargasso Sea, by Jean Rhys

And of course, some classics that I always mean to get to, yet somehow never do:

  • Sense and Sensibility, by Jane Austen
  • Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte
  • Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes
