You, dear blog reader, are just about to read one of my deepest, darkest, most disturbing secrets:
I have never read Wuthering Heights.
I've spent many years evading convos about its gothic charm, nodding when my friends discussed Heathcliff's obsession--I'm not proud of my prevarication. What's worse is I even specialized in the 19th Century British novel in grad school. Uh-huh.
I've happily dug into books by Eliot, Austen, Collins, Dickens, and even Charlotte Bronte. Why one sister and not the other? I don't know. It's one of those books, the ones you pick up at the bookstore, walk around with it for a while and then say, Ah, I don't think so before you make it to the register. I have a list of these books.
If you're brave enough, post one one title from your "never read" list in the comments box. Come on--it feels good to get it out in the open.
