Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and it's basically just as it says. Each Tuesday, there's a new topic to make a top ten list for. This is my first time participating, and I may or may not pick it up as a regular meme. I really want try this week's list because it seems interesting.
July 2: Top Ten Most Intimidating Books (might be intimated by size, content, that everyone else loves it but you are sure you won't etc)
1. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo - It's a very long classic.
2. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - It's also a long classic.
3. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare - It's a pretty big book; I have also seen a few spoilers that could upset me
4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey - There's a lot of hype right now.
5. Words by Ginny L. Yttrup - Okay, this isn't really on my to-read list. My friend let me borrow it and she said it was really good. It looks like it's heavy on religion, and that's one area I try to stay away from at all costs in books.
6. Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines - Cover and genre; I've read other Abbi Glines books and other NA books, but the cover makes me want to stay away from it.
Since not many books are intimidating to me before I read them, I decided to include some that I've already read, but still feel intimidated by because I'm nervous about how people will critique them. There are a lot of books that I just love, but feel oddly protective over because I'm afraid others are going to tear it apart. These are four of them.
