Top Ten Most Intimidating Books

Posted July 2, 2013 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 36 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

So, today’s the day where I get to confess my deepest bookish confessions relating to books and why I get intimidated by them. That was a long sentence. Anyway, I’ve got big dreams, my friends. Big, big dreams. I want to read ALL THE BOOKS, but at the same time some of them really scare me. And that’s sad, because I know many of you love a couple of the books I’m about to mention!


Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I’ve seen the movie adaptations, and loved them. I want to read this SO bad, but I’m scared of it! I know the language will take some getting used to, but I’m smart! This should be no biggie.

The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
Again, I’ve seen the film adaptation. Maybe the book has a bunch of boring details the film left out? Buck up, Jana. It’s just a book.

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
What if I only love this because Richard Armitage plays Mr. Thornton????!!! I mean, LOOK:



Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
1,037 pages, people!

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
909 pages! Oh man!

A Game of thrones by George R.R. Martin
864 pages. *whistles*

There’s no need to even discuss these. You all know how much I hate crying! I will not do it. 

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson


So… what do I do? I mean, I guess I need some motivation here. Help me out! Do I dive in, worries aside, or are some of them just not worth it?
