My buddy Sophski 😛 @ Sophia Ismaa Writes tagged me in this. Basically you have to go through all the unread books you own and determine whether you’re still interested in reading them or not. Initially I thought it would be difficult because of all the books I bought last month. So I decided to cheat. Just a little bit. I mean, I bought the books recently so of course I’m interested in reading them. Right? Right. Besides, I’ve already talked about them before.
Okay, so taking out the hauled books from last month, I am left with only a handful of books. Apparently I’m pretty good at reading the books I own haha.
Enough rambling, let’s get to it (book covers link back to their goodreads page).
First up, is this book. I remember having to buy this book for a Religious Studies class in college. But I don’t think we even read it. I kept it though, so I guess I was interested in reading it at some point. Now… eh.
Verdict: Somewhat interested. It’s historical so it does appeal to me in that sense.
Ah, okay. So I’m low-key obsessed with Princess Diana. Who isn’t? And I bought this book when Borders had their big “going out of business sale”. It’s full of photographs and I can’t believe I forgot I owned it.
Verdict: Definitely still interested. I was flipping through the pages before I started writing this post.
Sophia, you might like this one! “It is a psychology of women in the truest sense”. Confession time. I was planning to donate this book without having read it. My friend’s mom gave it to me when she was moving. And I judged the book by it’s title. Now, I’m finally reading the goodreads description haha.
Well, I was a young and ambitious student 😉 . Yes, that is War and Peace. In Italian. smh. I bought this book one night while strolling through Palermo. It was 5 Euro!
Verdict: Still interested. Not in this copy though haha. I’m keeping it but I need to buy an English version.
I bought this book right after I finished reading The Stranger. That was a great little novel and I was eager to read more by Camus. And then as luck should have it, I found this book at my library’s bookstore.
I am also low-key obsessed with the Kennedy’s. It took me years to find this book. And it’s been years since I bought it. It is a highly-detailed account of President Kennedy’s assassination and the days following it. Please don’t judge me by this book’s condition! It looked like this when I bought it.
Verdict: Insanely interested. Haven’t gotten around to it because it’s a looong read.
I found this book at a bus stop! It’s a bit of a home-ec guide. There’s things inside like “how to make your own jam”, “how to tie a tie” and “how to waltz”. It’s pretty cool, from what I’ve seen.
Verdict: Interested. I don’t think it’s one of those books you actually have to sit and read. It’s a guide. I should acquaint myself with the subjects it covers though.
My friend gave me this book haha. Her boss gave her this book and another. She kept the other. It’s a self-help book. That’s all I know about it.
Verdict: Not interested. But maybe one day I will be?
I bought this book only a few days ago. Since I haven’t mentioned it before, I figured it should go on this list. Now, I have seen the movie adaptation. But I didn’t even know it was based on a book until The Cozy Pages did a post on this books various covers not too long ago. (I’m not a fan of this cover though! 😦 )
Verdict: Interested! I kind of love the movie.
Another book I recently bought. My friend owns a copy and wants us to read it together.
Verdict: Hesitatingly interested. I’ve seen the movie but I didn’t really like it?
* I should mention that I did leave some books out. Ethnographies, school texts, stuff like that *
I TAG: Anyone and Everyone that wants to participate!
You know, as I was digging through my books I realized there are a few that I know I read, but could not remember one single detail about. That will probably be a post for another day haha.
HAPPY BLOGGING! 🙂
