LOOK BOOKS. I LIKE MY RHYMING SKILLS. DO YOU?

So my awesome sister, knowing that I like books (very observant of her actually to notice this little gem about it) told me about this challenge that BBC threw out to the world about a hundred books.

To those of you weren’t impressed by that, 100 BOOKS.

It’s basically all those posh guys in BBC challenging us faithful readers and book bloggers (I’m not a total book blogger but I occasionally dabble is all, can you tell?) and asking us how many of its ‘all-time great books’ or rather, ‘ALL TIME GREAT BOOKS’ we’ve read. So you can find that challenge and actually do it here.

So here’s me responding:

I’ve read 38 of the 100 books which doesn’t sound like much but the website says that I’m in the top 27% percent of the whole wide world take that, actually number  of books I read cause percentages are kickass.

The books I’ve read, (With small insights into my feelings about the books and such cause I’m awesome and you guys like reading my thoughts on things apparently)

Jane Eyre. (because)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (why not the rest of it?)

Wuthering Heights (Cathy, you fucking idiot)

1984 (welcome dystopia)

His Dark Materials (wow, Adam and Eve)

Great Expectations (remember that egg joke? Yeah, so do I)

Little Women (but not the rest?)

Catcher in the Rye (Holden Caulfield you mad genius)

The Time Traveler’s Wife (wow)

The Great Gatsby (oh the metaphors)

Hitchhikers’s Guide to the galaxy (the GREAT TRILOGY OF FOUR CAUSE MATHS)

Alice in Wonderland (Mad Hatter’s Tea party #TeaPartyGoals)

David Copperfield (my first foray into romanticized poor kids)

Chronicles of Narnia

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe ( why isn’t this joined with the previous one by the way?)

The Kite Runner

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (I wanted to be Corelli so bad. But I’ve never seen or even touched a mandolin)

Memoirs of a Geisha (hot damn)

Animal Farm (farm politics. Mmmm)

The Da Vinci Code (I regret this)

One Hundred Years Of Solitude (GGG you mad genius)

Anne of Green Gables ( the least horniest red head in popular literature)

Lord of the Flies (this messed me up)

Life of Pi (watch the movie people)

A Tale of Two Cities (Eat CAKE!)

Of Mice and Men (of good stories and words)

Count of Monte Cristo (prisons man)

Midnight’s Children (that nose)

Moby Dick (interestingly enough, I actually like the animated series that ran circa 2004/2005 more)

Oliver Twist (family is complicated)

The Secret Garden (MY FIRST CLASSIC)

The Remains of the Fucking Day (so the title doesn’t have ‘fucking’ in it but it’s appropriate)

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH)

The Far Away Tree (vaguely disturbing children’s story I liked)

Three Musketeers (Four actually cause MATHS)

Hamlet (not the village type)

Charlie & The chocolate Factory (get a golden ticket and take your grandpa cause, FAMILY)

Les Miserables (FEELS)
