1. Shirley by Charlotte Bronte
I really liked 'Jane Eyre', but have never been bothered to read 'Shirley'. I really want to though because Shirley Manson's grandma was named after 'Shirley'. So it must have been pretty good to name someone after it.

2.Sixty Lights by Gail Jones.
I attempted to read it once, but couldn't get into it.

3.Tallow by Karen Brooks
The pages are literally yellow.

4. The Scarlett Letter
I bought it from a 2nd-hand shop for $1. I bought it because of Easy A. I definitely need to read it.

5.Blossoms and Shadows by Lian Hearn

6.The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Suzannah Clarke
I didn't realise that this was a companion novel to her other book. I don't know if I need to read the other book or not. And, I never bothered to find out.

7.The Portrait of a Lady
I even bought the movie so I can watch it afterwards.

8.The Past and Other Lies by Maggie Joel
A historical novel. I should love it, but I've never really tried to start it.

9.Flowers in the Attic

10. Catrin collier's books.

Why is it that some books don't get read as quickly as the rest?

I wanted to read The Scarlet Letter after Easy A too. My library doesn't have it though and I've got a horrible feeling I've already brought a copy so I'm not buying another.

My top ten is here if you'd like a look :)

I should really get to Portrait of a Lady sometime soon, too. The Scarlett Letter looks like something I need to add to my TBR. Thanks for reminding me ;)

You have so many interesting books on your list. I want to read Shirley too - love Charlotte Bronte.

I never even heard of Shirley before. I am going to have to try it.

Flowers in the Attic is about the best of Virginia Andrews' novels, but after that they get kind of same-y...
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)
