Monster Volume 1 by Naoki Urasawa
I still very much want to read this manga. I love the anime. I just need to buy it. That’s the problem. So many books to buy, so little money. Still, I will get it. Eventually.
The Mosquite Coast by Paul Theroux
This book has a sentimental significance for me. I still haven’t read it, but I do want to. I added it at someone’s recommendation years ago and I can’t bring myself to get rid of it. It does sound like a great read. Hopefully, I’ll get to it soon.
Lord of the Flies by William Gording
I have wanted to read this book for so long. And every time I remember about it, I ask myself why I’ve not read it yet. So… yeah.
Verdict: This one stays as well
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
Am I the only one who finds the author’s last name to be ironic? When I was a kid, I had this VHS with The Never Ending Story. It was an animated version. I adored it. I watched it on repeat every day, all day. It was crazy. Of course I want to read the book. I just need to. I can’t get rid of this!
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
*sigh* I wonder if I will remove even one book from my TBR today. I adore the Princess Bride film. I really want to read the book. I can’t toss it away.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Hmmm… I really enjoyed the film. I really liked the story. But I don’t feel any intense desire to read this book. I am satisfied with what the film provided. So I think at last, I will remove something!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
I love this story. And I do want to read it, but I don’t think it’s necessary to have it on my TBR. This is one of those books that I will see one day somewhere and read it in 15 minutes. So I will remove it for de-cluttering purposes.
Perfume: The Story of a Murder by Patrick Suskind
I saw this film and it was so weird. I really liked it. And I’m really interested to read this book, because I enjoy stories that are just a little bit fucked up.
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
I love satire and I really enjoy Oscar Wilde as a writer. I am very interested in reading this play.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
I don’t know what to do about this one. I really love the film. And I feel that I’m very content with what I got from it. And I’ve kind of heard mixed things about the book, so I don’t really want it to ruin the story for me. Then again… I do like forming my own opinions and I really love this story.
Verdict: Stays for now
