Today's topic is - Top Ten Most Intimidating Books
Not really intimidating, I'm not intimidated by books, but more apprehension.
In no particular order:
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Notre-Dame of Paris by Victor Hugo
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Under The Dome by Stephen King
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen by Jane Austen
There isn't a single particular reason as to why I delay reading these (with the exception of Jane Austen). I think it is a combination of their size and spending such a huge amount of time reading one book, plus I'd hate to get half way and be bored of them.
I have Jane Austen's books all in a complete volume. I'm worried about reading any of her works as when I read Pride and Prejudice in high school I found it so boring. I know - why did I buy the complete volume then! - well, I wanted to try again, but I'm worried I'm still going to hate it, so I haven't tried.
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I want to read these so much. I have the first 6 books for A Song of Fire and Ice which are all (well) over 500 pages. That's a LOT of reading!
I also have the complete Vampire Academy series and the first 3 books in The Mortal Instruments. As there are so many to read through to "catch up" with the series, its a little off putting. :(
That's my Top Ten. Leave a comment (and link to your post!) with your answer to this weeks top ten. =)
