Books I Own But Haven’t Read #2

Previous part

Clancy of the Undertow by Christopher Curie

I won this book in a giveaway and quite frankly I don’t have a lot of interest in reading it. As far as I recall, it’s a contemp about unrequited love. Which doesn’t really appeal to me.

Opere (Works) Barbu Stefanescu Delavrancea

I honestly don’t even know which of the author’s works are contained in this volume. This is an assigned reading in school type of book and I never got assigned it, so I never read it. But I do own it.

The Double & Notes From the Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

This book was given to me by a friend who studies literature at uni because she had accidentally bought two copies. I haven’t read it yet, but I do really want to read Dostoyevsky and I feel like this is a good place to start, because these are two relatively short works, so they’re not as intimidating.

The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection by Arthur Conan Doyle (4 vol)

I’ve read a portion of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I haven’t read all of them yet, so I still class these as unread. But I have them. Four glorious volumes of Sherlockness and I will read them entirely… eventually.

Relativity: The Special and General Theory by Albert Einstein

I actually just got this book. I got it as a birthday present from my parents (well, I bought it but with my parents’ money). So I feel no guilt about this.

The Novel of the Nearsighted Teen by Mircea Eliade

I’ve actually almost finished reading this book. I have like 50 pages left or something. I don’t know why I stopped, because I actually really enjoyed it. I think it was just that I moved away to uni as I was reading it and for some reason I didn’t bring it with me. And then too much time went by and I just ended up not finishing it. But I will. I plan to.

Poezii (Poems) by Mihai Eminescu

I’ve read some of the poems. But to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of this guy. Like, he’s supposedly the greatest Romanian poet but… there are several others I much prefer to him.

Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Estes Pinkola

This is another book that I only just got. I received it as a birthday present from a friend. So I don’t feel super guilty about it, but I would like to get to it soon, because it’s one of my friend’s favourite books.

Le Bossu (The Hunchback) by Paul Feval

I started reading this book as a sort of nod to my years of reading French cape and sword type adventures. But they just don’t grip me like they used to anymore. So I actually never got too far with this one. It is technically my grandmother’s book. But as with most books that I “borrow” from her, it just sort of became mine.

Spiral by Roderick Gordon and Bryan Williams

This is the 5th book I believe, in the Tunnels series. I’ve read the first 4 books I think a long time ago, and then stopped. Actually, I think at the time, only 4 had come out. In any case, my brother recently acquired the 5th one. I’m probably not going to read it though, to be fair because I don’t remember that much of the first 4 books and I don’t really feel like re-reading them.
