Joey Donut's Books of All Time He Hasn't Read, but Still Wants To

I read a lot of lists and see a lot of books I have no interest in reading. This annoys me. Victorian literature just isn't interesting to me as a person who lives in the 21st century (with a few exceptions). The following is drawn from the Top 1000 books off thegreatestbooks.org. They are the top 200 of those that:
1) I have yet to read.
AND
2) Sound interesting to me.
One nice thing about this list is that the closer you get to the bottom, the more unique selections show up, while still staying a relatively short list.
