10 Books on my Reading Bucket List
I have been working on reaching my goal of reading 50 books in 2022. I have officially passed the 30 book mark, but I still have a ways to go. Here are 10 books currently on my TBR list.
- The Iliad by Homer
Like many others in my generation, Percy Jackson threw me into a huge Greek Mythology phase when I was a kid. I have been wanting to read The Iliad for years now, and I finally have my own copy of the book.
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
My Dystopian Fiction class in high school had Animal Farm on our reading list, but we never got around to the book. After reading 1984 last month, I have high hopes for this Orwell novel.
- Carrie by Stephen King
I have never read a Stephen King book, but I figured this would be a good place to start. I have already seen two versions of the movie and am familiar with the story.
- The Odyssey by Homer
In high school, we only read short passages from The Odyssey. I have been wanting to read the entire book for a while to get the whole story.
- Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
When I was a kid, I loved the movie Journey to the Center of the Earth. This book has been on my bucket list for well over a decade and I cannot wait to check it off.
- The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
I read In a Dark, Dark Wood years ago and loved it. Ruth Ware is a great author and I am excited to pick up one of her books again.
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I don’t know when I will get around to reading Moby Dick but I will do it at some point. This is another book that has been on my bucket list since childhood. I first heard about it in Matilda and have been curious ever since.
- The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
We were supposed to read The Scarlet Letter during my last year of high school, but my teacher swapped it out at the last minute. I have been curious about the story ever since.
- Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth
The only books I have read from Veronica Roth are the books in the Divergent series. I’m curious to see what stories she has been creating in recent years.
- The Ask and the Answer (Chaos Walking Book 2) by Patrick Ness
I read The Knife of Never Letting Go over a year ago before I watched the movie Chaos Walking and fell in love with the story. Despite being older than the target audience, I had a lot of fun reading it and am curious to see what happens next.
