Top Ten Tuesdays: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire
Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's edition is the Top Ten Books you have Lied About. This can mean you've lied about reading a particular book or you've lied about not reading a particular book.
I have to admit that I don't often lie about the books that I do read. I have however lied about a few and here they are:
1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
I have listed this in my read pile but in reality I couldn't finish this book. My friend and I got the exact same spot in this book and quickly became bored of it. I think I need to pick it back up again soon.
2. Anything by Shakespeare
I took an English degree in University and included in my degree I had to take an entire course dedicated to Shakespeare. During this year in university I was diagnosed with depression and as a result I missed close to two months of classes. I fell quite behind so what I did to rectify this situation is use Sparksnotes to summarize all of my Shakespeare plays and I was able to write two essays and pass my exam. I did get a B+ in this class but I never read a single play.
3. Gemma Townley novels (or really anything super chick lit like)
I'm not sure that it's exactly lying but I never really admit to reading as much chick lit as I do. I like to read at least 10 chick lit novels a year. I usually read them after a particularly emotional read.
To be honest I think this is about it. I don't often lie about what I have read. I'm curious to read about all of you liars :)
