Admit it. We all have done it. (okay there may be a select few who has not) However I now must confess that at some point I have lied about something in regards to books…whether it was liking/hating the book or having read the book (or actually never reading the book) So without further ado here is a list of books that I have lied about.
Okay I feel like the most horrible person in the world for even lying about this one. I hope God forgives me because honestly, WHO LIES ABOUT READING THE BIBLE?! THE BIBLE?! I don’t exactly remember when I lied about reading it, but the only thing I can recall is someone asking me if I read it and without thinking I said, yes.
TWILIGHT BY STEPHANIE MEYER
With Twilight I lied about never reading it but truth be told, I actually did read the book…well only the first. And surprisingly I thought it wasn’t that bad. I guess at that time I was ashamed to admit that I read the book since I felt like some people would judge me if I told them I read it.
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT BY FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY
You know when you read a half of the book but never really finished it; however you claimed you read it anyways. Yes I was one of those people. When people would talk about this book I would claim that I have read it and how great it was. Unfortunately I thought opposite; hence the reason why I never finished reading it. I don’t know why I lied about this one.
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS BY JOHN GREEN
I think it was the hype with this book. All of my friends (well the ones that actually read) kept talking about this book so one day I just told them that I read the book, too– this was after I watched the movie. I do own a copy of the book so yes this is definitely going to be read….soon…hopefully 😉
What books have you lied about?
