Some of the most intimidating books

So I thought i’d do a little list of some books that I would like to really but the size of them scares the hell out of me.
I’m sure it would take me years to finish some of them.
Then there are ones that are so well loved i’m worried I won’t love them half as much as some people do!

Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin.

This one is for two reasons. One because the hype surrounding the book and the tv show is ridiculous. I got only to series 3 with the TV show and fell behind and I just haven’t been bothered to carry on! I will eventually i’m sure. Then of course there is the fact that it is 848 pages!!! I try to read 50 pages a day depending on how busy I am, this book would take me over 2 weeks to finish. CRAAAAZZZZY!!

 

IT By Stephen King

I have never read a book by Stephen King.
There I said it, come at me with your pitchforks if you gotta.
I have watched this feel and it scared the hell out of me so the idea of reading a 1116 page book while being scared for most of it doesn’t sound that appealing. Maybe one day, who knows?

 

The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R Tolkien

I have read the movies and absolutley loved both LOTR and the Hobbit. The books I don’t think I even have on my TBR on good reads. I’m not sure if I will ever read them. I mean its 1216 pages which is a ridiculous amount and i’m not sure how I feel about it? Will the writing draw me in? Will I just be comparing it to the film? Ugh, this is a difficult one.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I do intend to eventually pick this one up. It’s another whopper being 850 pages. The hype is strong with this one, I think nearly everyone who has read it has loved it – same going for the TV show. I do intend to read this one next year (lol yeah sure i will…..).

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

This book I actually intend to read soon. Woo!
It’s only 541 pages which compared to some of these books on this list. It’s not the size that scares me on this one it’s the fact it’s Brandon Sanderson!!! I mean I feel like everybody loves a book that he has wrote so i’m really hoping I enjoy them.

 

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

522 Pages which is nowhere near big compares to the others. But I have heard SUCH GOOD THINGS.
I don’t think I have spoken to anybody who didn’t have good things to say about this and the goodreads overall rating of 4.36 stars proves that.

The Diviners by Libba Bray

I have heard good and bad things about Libba Bray but I have heard great things about The Diviners series and I just want to read it and love it and give it 5 stars soooooo bad.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin

I am scared to read this for 3 reasons.

1) Its Jane Austin.
2) It’s such a high rates classic
3) I’m actually not sure if I would like it, the writing and stuff I think i’d find so hard to read 🙁

 

I’d love to heard what books you think are intimidating and if you agree with any of the ones i’ve listed above? 🙂

  1. Oh my gosh please, please, PLEASE read The Book Theif, it is my all time favourite novel. I know it’s really long but it doesn’t feel like it. It’s just a really good book to sink your teeth into but be prepared to cry!
    Don’t worry, I’m also scared to read Lord of the Rings, I can barely make it through the films without falling asleep, I don’t know how I’d manage the books!

    1. I WILL SOON I PROMISE. everyone raves about it so i know i’m going to love it!!! 🙂
      I love the films so much which is sort of why i’m worried to read the books – i feel like they will be very info dumpy!! xD
      I’m sure i’ll get round to reading them eventually tho 🙂
