So today I want to come with you with a bucket list of books I want to read in the next 10 years. These are ten books that I won’t normally pick up, but I hope to one day… eventually get to. Let’s be honest, this is just my excuse to make a really pretty list with pictures.
~But we’re not going to talk about that. ~
Anyways, here is the list:
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
This book is super hard to find but I have a CRAVING!
Do I know what it is about? No.
Do I care? Also, no.
I just have this intense feeling that I will read this and my life will be changed forever. Maybe for good, maybe for bad. Or maybe I’m just hyping myself up because this is a 300 page classic written by a Russian man.
2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I always put this book on my cart when I go book shopping but then I get distracted and it ends up being put back. I have heard a good amount of nothing on what this book is about, but I am still interested.
Also, putting it here will make me buy it so I can fulfill my bookish bucket list.
3. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
I have absolutely no clue what this classic covers but I heard it is french and there is drama.
I think… there’s murder or a ghost or… honestly, I’m just here for the drama. I won’t deny I am that type of person.
4. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
So… I watched the HBO show. It was amazing. I am still disturbed about it. Obviously, I should read the book. That’s the only reason why this is on the list.
5. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I have watched the movie and I have watched the cheap Netflix comedy version of it.
I feel like I should complete the circle by reading her books and hopefully obsessing over them enough so I can start my own investigation on a moving train.
6. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
I heard this was weird.
Yeah… that’s it.
7. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
It’s short. It’s weird. I have nothing else to say.
8. A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
I know a lot about Sherlock for someone who has never read the original works. This is probably because I heard that Moriarty is not that active in the books, and he is a superior villain in all levels.
9. The Book Thief by Mark Zusak
I have started reading this book a solid three times. However, I heard it is so sad. Everyone who reads it tells me they were in tears and I am not ready for the emotions. I have been lying to myself and saying that I will read this in the “perfect, cold weather”, but I live on the surface of the sun so that’s never going to happen.
I just need to get my act together.
10. If We Were Villains by M.L.Rio
Shakespeare? Drama? Murder? OH MY!
This book sounds like everything I need in my life.
So there you have it. All the ten books I hope to read in the next ten years. I did give myself a whole decade as a deadline just because I am a very big mood reader and there are other books that interest me just as much. And I don’t want to find myself reading just to fulfill a challenge since reading is something I do for fun.
But let me know any books you have on your bucket list, and I’ll see you next time I post.
