- Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. I really feel like I was supposed to have read this book a long time ago. I have it upstairs, I have started it actually. But somehow I couldn't get myself to read on. Too much to do, too much else to read etc. These are some of the weakest excuses I have ever heard myself utter, but they're true. I did really like what I read, Rushdie has a style of writing that attracts me.
- The Mill on the Floss by George Elliot. This was actually the first book I bought by Elliot. But shortly after I bought Middlemarch. And once I started that one I wasn't able to focus on The Mill anymore. I read parts of the beginning of The Mill and I liked it. Somehow I didn't love it however. The characters were nice and everything but it didn't speak to me as strongly. I will however start again because the book deserves it
- Hamlet by William Shakespeare. I don't think I have to explain why I want to read this play. I've seen it on stage already and am going to see it again soon. I know the play, I just haven't read it yet. It is one of these plays that you should have read and should have an opinion about. I now, solemnly, swear that I will read it before the year is over.
Is there a book you have been dying to read and once you have a copy you forget?
