Top Ten Tuesday Liar Liar

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten is the top ten books you lie about reading/not reading.

  1. All Quiet On The Western Front. I actually read the book and I did enjoy it... sort of. I just didn't like all of the worksheets and quizzes that went along with it in English class.
  2. Twilight. I lie about enjoying that series.. I was so into it that I read them all within a week.
  3. Hiroshima. Another book I read and lied about not reading.
  4. Little Women. I have never read this book, but until I get the chance I tell people who ask that I have
  5. Same goes for Where the Red Fern Grows
  6. Trixie Belden. I've only read the first one.. about five times! Nobody knows
  7.  Ida B. This has to be one of my all-time favorite books. I've read it a dozen times even though it's for like elementary schoolers... It's my favorite!
  8. The Autobiography of Mark Twain. For this one, it's not that I lie about the fact that I'm reading it, it's just that I haven't told anybody. My dad got it for me for Christmas.
  9. The Oddessy. Maybe it's the fact that I don't understand what is going on the whole time, but whenever people talk about it at school I lie that I really enjoy the book. And I love Greek Mythology.. just not this book.
  10. Ice. Nobody I've ever talked to has read this book and everyone I try to get to read it turns it down and looks at me like I'm a freak so I have stopped trying. It's a really really good book though! So now I ignore the fact that I loved it so much I cried during it.

What is your top ten list?


  1. I've decided that my "lies" are more related to memory loss. Did I or didn't I really read this book?

  2. +JMJ+

    On #10: Awwww! I hope you find a fellow Ice fan soon. I've never heard of the book, but I hope I wouldn't turn you down as if you were a freak if you recommended it.

  3. This made me laugh. I lie about enjoying all the classics, even if they took weeks of torture to get through. I think people think the should like a book because everyone else seems to. Cycle of book liking. Interesting post any.
