Books you're intimidated by
Usually I get intimidated by really huge books, high fantasy, hyped books, books that are in a long series and contemporary. Yes contemporary intimidates me a bit because it's not something I am used to and I tend to not connect or get tired of the relationships in the books.
This being said, here are some books that are currently intimidating me. These are in no particular order.
- A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin: I started this book almost a year ago, read half of it and got incredibly bored of it. Don't get me wrong it is not a bad book, I just wasn't in the mood for it so I put it down. The thing is I really wanna read it, it's just that it's really big, I don't really care for some new character's that were introduced and I want more white walkers in it. But I will read it this year.
- Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson: Well this book has the perfect mix of everything that intimidates me in a book: it's high fantasy, it's huge and it's very very hyped. I am seriously struggling with this one because of this.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: I have had this book for almost 2 years and I cannot get around to read it. Why? Because it is incredibly hyped, it is historical fiction which I'm not really into and it's quite a chunky book. Though, I am pretty sure I will read it this year.
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: The hype is real. That's all I have to say about this book. (Seriously the hype is absurd and it's putting me off. Also don't forget the fact that this series seems to aspire to the mortal instruments series with it's length).
- Eragon by Christopher Paolini: This book is huge and it's also high fantasy which scares me... a lot. What if I don't like it? Because I already bought the entire series...
Hopefully I will get to these books sometime this year but I'm not holding my breath about it...
So tell me, what are the books that intimidate you?
