Whether they’re long, part of a huge series or just so wildly popular the rabid fans are off-putting.. there are books or series that are intimidating to start. There are a lot of classics that I want to read, but they’re just not currently where my head is so it’s more like “not my current mood” than “intimidating read”. As such, I tried to pick books or series that I want to read but just haven’t yet for whatever reason.
All of these books or series are ones that I want to get to, but for whatever reason, I keep putting off. Inspire me?
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her post here!
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan
The Shannara Chronicles by Terry Brooks
I even started reading two of them in graphic novel form to inspire myself. I’m so interested in the stories but haven’t picked them up yet. (I think the biggest thing is that I tend to read and review YA, so I’ll usually pick up a teen novel to read next rather than another type.) Plus the first three are some of my Dad’s favourite books, that’s pressure right there!
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I’m constantly being told that I need to watch Outlander, but guys I can’t watch it before I read the book. (Whoops GoT, my dad showed me the show before we went out and bought the books.) It’s just so big and I don’t own a physical copy of it.
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
It’s one of my friend’s favourite books, so I want to read it but what if I don’t like it? Pressure! Again!
What books are you intimidated by? Have you read any of the ones on my list and are also completely in love? Let me know in the comments!
