Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Was "Forced" to Read!
The word forced is truly in quotes as I've never in my life felt at all forced to read something. The word forced and read just don't go together in my brain. I know some people feel very much differently, but that's how it is with me!
With that being said, here's a list of some books off the top of my head where I had some pretty good encouragement and incentive to read them! I could go on and on, but I think I already hit the ten book limit here!
Ten (SOME?) Books I was "Forced" to Read
"Forced" by a book club or group:
The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy: read by an online group years ago
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett: read by an online group years ago
"Forced" by a read along:
Under the Dome by Stephen King: a read along I did with Jenny a year or so ago
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson: a read along I did with Ibeeeg awhile back
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russel: a read along I did with Florinda and Heather
Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel: read along with Jessica
"Forced" by another reader:
Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz: encouragement by Jenny!
The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy: encouragement by Ibeeeg!
"Forced" to read at school:
Tess of the D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy: which started my Thomas Hardy love affair
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne: which brings back lovely memories of the movie we watched
The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens: in which I didn't understand a thing but loved it anyway!
