This wonderful meme was brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Be sure to head over there to check out previous and next Top Ten Tuesday topics.
Today’s topic on Top Ten Tuesday is supposed to be:
Top Ten Author Duos You’d LOVE To See Write A Book Together (aka my (Jamie’s) world would explode if Gayle Forman and Jandy Nelson wrote a book together) — might be hard to come up with 10 but still would be fun! Bonus points if you tell us what kind of book you’d like them to write!
But since I had a hard time thinking of 3 pairs I decided to choose an older topic I didn’t do: Intimidating books.
I think we all have books we find intimidating. Whether it’s because the book has a complex plot, a lot of hype surrounding it or because it’s thicker than a dictionary, we avoid them. And so I’ll tell you about ten books that I find intimidating.
10. A Song of Ice and Fire series
9. The Goldfinch
This book has a lot of buzz around it an the page number of the paperback is 864. I think more nervous of the hype that surrounds it.
8. The Luminaries
Page count: 848
7. The Way of Kings
I’m equally nervous about the hype, plot complexity and page count (1008) of thus book.
6. Lord of the Rings
This is the only book on the list that I’ve read, but I found it intimidating because of the writing style, the hype, and the length. It’s was especially intimidating when I learned that this in fact isn’t a trilogy, but a single book.)
5. A Tale of Two Cities
I don’t kw why I’m intimidated by this book. I just am.
4. Les Misérables
complexity and page count (1463).
3. The Count of Monte Cristo
page count: 1276.
2. The Iliad
1. The Odyssey
