Books I Have Lied About

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.

THE BIBLE

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?

  1. Yeah it’s funny how we are sometimes ashamed to admit we have read certain books, or that we liked them, if everyone else constantly criticises them. I also enjoyed the first Twilight book when I read it (didn’t like the sequels at all though!) but in some circles I don’t mention that because I know I will be judged!

  2. Very brave confession. I said I read the bible to impress a girl then realised she was a Buddhist and read Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism instead. After I impressed with my knowledge she told me about her boyfriend who was a some kind of Buddhist monk. I never dated the girl but the book was pretty cool.
