Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This Tuesday is all about books that are intimidating. Intimidating books, to me, are those that are big, have a lot of hype, or are so beloved.
This book has been on my TBR list for, probably, ten years or longer. It has almost 1000 pages and for that reason I have put it off.
This is really any written work by William Shakespeare. I read Romeo and Juliet in school, but worry about attempting to read something else by him.
This is one that is so beloved that I am nervous I won’t like it as much as everyone as else does.
I anticipate really enjoying Jane Austen. However, I am nervous that I won’t love Pride and Prejudice as much as everyone else does. I know the story so well from the movies, what if I don’t fall in love with the book?
I have put off reading this book for so long. I worry I won’t love the books. I have heard so many things and so many love it, what if I don’t?
I really love the movies, but the books seem so long. I just don’t know and have hesitated reading it.
This is the same reason as the Lord of the Rings. I have never seen the show, but it seems like a big time commitment.
This book intimidates because I know it will make me sad. I am just not mentally prepared, yet.
I want to read this book. It sounds so good, and has great reviews. Except, it is so big!
I have heard this one is hard to get into. I am worried that I won’t be able to get into the book. Another one that a lot of people seem to enjoy. I just don’t know!
What books are intimidating you or have you just put off?
