Day 13: A Book You Haven’t Read But Is On Your “Will Read” List

I know this is a good book. Everyone keeps telling me it’s a good book, a great series, but I’ve never touched a J.R.R. Tolkien book before. That is why this book is still on my “Will Read” list, because I will read it… eventually.

Title: The Hobbit
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Synopsis:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent. The text in this 372-page paperback edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics (1998), and includes a note on the text by Douglas A. Anderson (2001). Unforgettable!

Look at all that praise ! I will read it, you can count on that… maybe this summer (yn) !

What are some books that you’ve been wanting to read for a while now, but just haven’t gotten to ’em yet?

    I passed by Chapters the other day and saw a book titled “The Geography of You & Me”. The plot sounded cute, and the Goodreads review was pretty good too. I want to read it, but I’m not too sure I can ever find the time!

    • Yeah ! I’ve seen that around. It’s on my to-reads list, but I probably won’t get to it for a while… too many books, so little time…

I've heard so many great things about the book and now a part of me is afraid to read it... I mean, look at ACOTAR and where I ended up...
