Top Ten Most Intimidating Books
Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
So most of the books on my list this week are there because of their size. I don’t like reading more then one book at a time, so I feel if a book is too big I will have to take a break and start another one…which I despise doing. So here are my top 6 most intimidating books (I have read the last 2 though, but they did scare me at first : ) :
Game of Thrones by George Martin
These books are so thick and I’m scared I won’t like them. I love the TV show, but I’m afraid of the books…
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
So I’ve never read anything by Dickens I didn’t like, but this one just scares me because of its girth. I’ve heard it’s fantastic, but I’m too afraid to start it.
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Don’t think I’ll ever read this. It’s massive and I’ve heard it’s extremely dull, but I bought it anyways just in case…
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I don’t think I can read this one. A book about a suicide and the reasons why she committed it. Sounds a bit too depressing…
Jane Eyre by Bronte
I was terrified about reading this one. It’s huge and my friends all loved it. But, once I started it…it was amazing and I flew through it.
Harry Potter by JK Rowling
I remember being very opposed to reading the first book because someone I didn’t like in school liked the books…but eventually I caved and read the first one and fell madly in love. That’s the magic of books; no matter who you are, you can enjoy the same ones.
Should I read some of these even though they scare me? What are some you’re afraid of?
