Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Bookish Bucket List

Posted March 25, 2014 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Top Ten Tuesday / 12 Comments

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in on this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Books on my Bookish Bucket List. These are books I plan to read to increase my pretentious levels but feel like I need to become a better reader first.

  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  • Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
  • Finnegans Wake by James Joyce
  • In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
  • Middlemarch by George Eliot

  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
  • The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
  • The Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer
  • The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño
  • Underworld by Don DeLillo

  1. I like how upfront you are about intentionally trying to increase pretension levels.
    I haven’t been able to finish Atlas Shrugged. I started it what feels like forever ago and I think it’s too far above me intellectually because I don’t quite understand why it has so many fans.

    Best of luck reading all of these books!

    I’m intimidated by many authors on your list, Homer being the one I want to read the most and the least at once. I did tick Hardy off my list last year, though, but I didn’t like the book I read all that much! I read and loved Ayn Rand a long time ago and I have no intention of revisiting her. I like how your list is only books, though, that’s as bookish as you can get. 🙂
