Humiliation begins

If you'd like to join in this week's edition of Humiliation, please reply to this post with the name of a children's or young adult book you have never read.

If you'd like to know how the game is played, I've posted rules and helpful hints here.

House rules reminder:
  • The theme is Children's and Young Adult Literature.
  • If you don't think a book qualifies, explain why. My decision on whether or not a book counts is final. It's only a game.
  • You may not enter with The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, or Hamlet. They were the top three in the last game I hosted.
  • Prize(s) will be awarded, if the winner(s) are willing.
  • You do not have to be on my friendslist to play. That's why this is a public post.


Entries close around 1 pm (in the UK) this Wednesday, September 5th when voting will begin.

It's more fun if you all choose different books, but you're allowed to compete with the same book as someone else if you really want to.

Your comment is proof you haven't read the book: it's called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It just always looked really, really boring to me.

It's actually an awesome book. I HATE plants and gardens and outdoors and growing things, and I LOVE this book. Please give it a try someday.

Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie. Er... that is the one of that big series that everybody's supposed to read, isn't it? I'm just going by the fact that they named the TV show after it... I haven't read any of them. ;P

Ooh! Please ma'am, I know!

Actually, I probably don't. But that's about the third in the series:
Little House in the Big Woods
Some preposition The Banks of Plum Creek
Little House on the Prairie
Some preposition The Shores of Silver Lake
Farmer Boy
And a couple of others. Contrary to what one might expect, On Golden pond in not one of them.

Re: Everyone's worst nightmare
Yes, it certainly does count as a young adult novel. Would you like to compete with the first HP book, or one of the others? I suspect the largest number of people have read the first one, although I could be wrong.

Also, lazyknight has requested to compete in absentia with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorceror's Stone, but there's no reason why you can't also.

Charlotte's Web. I know what happens in the end, and I don't want to read it.

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. I have read Alice in Wonderland but never the second book.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, by Maurice Sendak. It always looked too scary.

Hmm. I guess I'll go with Beatrix Potter. I haven't read anything by her.

If I have to choose just one book, let's make it The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Treasure Island, I started it once but never finished it. I wonder if it coulud ever live up to the Muppet version?
