Top 10 most lied about books – what makes your list?

Now, we’ve all been there. We try to impress someone with how widely read and knowledgable we are by saying we have read a particular book when we haven’t. It’s okay though, because you’re not the only one. A recent survey on The Guardian website has revealed the top 10 books most lied about. How many are you guilty of gushing about when what you’ve really read is the Wikipedia page?

Take a look here

In the spirit of honesty, I haven’t read all of the 10 books on the list. But now I really want to! Some are quite daunting, such as Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace, and I’m definitely guilty of having just watched the movie for that one (which went for over 3 hours I might add). However, Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird are two of my all time favourites and I’ve definitely read them more than once.  1984 is definitely up there too, along with Jane Eyre and The Catcher in the Rye (I’ve previously done a blog post on that one which you can see here)

What about you? Have you lied about reading a book before?
