I currently have 765 books on my TBR list and OMG! How will I ever get to ALL OF THEM?! Anyway, I picked a few books on my TBR FOREVER, which I probably WILL NEVER read. At. All. Yeah.
BOOKS ON MY TBR FOREVER
I love the movie, I have the book
added May 2010 | published 1973
I absolutely LOVE the movie! And the movie itself IS about this fictional book, right? But yeah, I’m not even sure if I want to read the book. In fact, I have a copy of this book. I just feel like the book version will disappoint me and taint my love for the movie.
added October 2010 | published 1900
The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movie musicals! And I have probably read the illustrated kids version of this books buuutt NOT the actual series of books. Plus, I forgot what the book was even about. I mean, I can sing and quote the movie, but the book? Nahhh.
added October 2010 | published 1951
Here is another movie from my childhood that I rewatched multiple times! Ahhhh the nostalgia! However, I haven’t read the book and I’m not even sure I want to? I mean, the main plot of the book is taking a pig to slaughter, right? I don’t know if my heart can take THAT!

I saw the animated anime version of The Last Unicorn and I fell in love with it. I recently rewatched the movie and I admit that it was a bit dated. However, the charm is still there! I will probably read this to my kids when I have them, though.

Another one of my fave musicals starring one of my fave singing actresses, Julie Andrews! Also, I saw Saving Mr. Banks and it made me love (AND appreciate) Mary Poppins even more! I have read that the books are more depressing as compared to the Disney-fied version so. I’m keeping my Disney-fied version, thank you very much!
Historical Romance that I NEED to Read ASAP
added October 2012 | published 1987
I enjoyed Meagan McKinney’s Gilded Age series, Lions and Lace and I want to read this book! I know this is super bodice ripper-y and it has a lot of crazysauce but I WANT THIS BOOK NAAAWWW!
added April 2013 | published 1999
This is another book that sounds like it has crazy sauce written all over it! It sounds like a Sound of Music involving A LOT of kids and I expect, a lot of craziness! Also, it is Teresa Medeiros! I can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet!
added July 2013 | published 2012
I love any romance involving investigators and Scotland Yard and this is romance steampunk set in Victorian England? SIGN ME UP! But yeah… I don’t know why I haven’t even read this yet!
The “Serious” Books
added May 2010 | published 1951
Teenage angst and rebellion. Also, this book has been on a lot of MUST read before you die lists so my interest was piqued! Since this looks like “required” reading, I will probably not even get to this book!
added May 2010 | published 1945
This is the same as the previous book mentioned and has also been on those 100 best books lists and it supposedly social commentary, right? But I probably won’t read it again. I think this would feel too heavy for me, you know? Give me light and fluffy books, please!
Have you read any books before?
Which ones should I absolutely read? Which book is soooo worth the read?
