30 days of Book Discussion: Day 23
A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t
More correctly, this is a book I have read half of when I was 14, and then never finished. I was reading it thinking "This is the most awesome book I have ever read," and then I saw the Wishbone* episode where they reenact the Count of Monte Cristo. After seeing it I was like, "So the first half of the book is awesome, and then the second half is just about stupid revenge? Lame." So I never finished it.
But in the back of my mind I'm hoping that perhaps if I finish reading the book, it will be more meaningful than I'm expecting and live up to the first half, so it's sort of an unfulfilled ambition thus far. There are just too many YA fantasy books out there in the meantime.
Remember Wishbone? I loved that show. Except the one where he played Cyrano de Bergerac was a little far-fetched. Get it? Fetched? Just kidding. But seriously, I felt really bad for the actress who had to unknowingly be in love with a Jack Russel Terrier. I assume that was probably a low point in her career.
