There are only so many books you can read in a lifetime! I’m a huge bookworm so I’ve understandably read quite a lot. However, for some reason, a lot of the best-selling, much loved favourites just haven’t made it yet! Considering how many best-selling novels there are in the world, I don’t think I’m doing too bad but there’s definitely some whoppers that I’m missing out on.
There’s always so much pressure reading well-loved books too! If I don’t like it, am I weird, uncultured, uneducated, naive? Obviously, people have different opinions but when it’s something as famous as Pride and Prejudice, I do start to worry if it’ll live up to it’s expectations.
All of these books are waiting for me on my “to be read” list so I’ll definitely get around to them eventually. Because I haven’t read much throughout 2016, I’m finally just starting to catch-up on all of the novels I’d planned to read last year.
