Thank you The Broke and The Bookish for this wonderful Tuesday meme.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Most Intimidating Books! Anjie and I will be splitting the list again for the sake of consistency. And here we go!
1. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
I received this book as a gift back in March (I think), and I still haven’t read it. Most of my bookish friends have loved it and I fear I might not like it. The size of the book is also intimidating me.
2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I bought this book because the movie is coming out soon. Almost everyone I know hates this book except one person (That person would be Anjie. Haha). I took a leap of faith buying this book and now I’m scared it will disappoint me. Verdict: It is sitting on my book shelf… lonely.
3. The One by Kiera Cass
‘The One’ hasn’t been released yet I am very intimidated by it. Being the last book in the trilogy, I want so many things to be resolved and I want so many things to happen, it is ridiculous. Not everything will get resolved and what does get resolved might not even be how I want it to. I am wearily anticipating this book, hoping it will not shred my feels into oblivion.
4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
I’ve read very few classics in my life. This classic has been sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to read it. I loved Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and I’m hoping I’ll love her sister’s written work as well. The size of the book and the difficult language in the novel has had me turning a blind eye when I see it sitting on my book shelf.
5. Legend by Marie Lu
I’m halfway through this book and I can’t take it. I don’t know if I can keep going. Nope. Nu uh. Not happening any time soon.
6. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Many who have read ‘Unravel Me’ have told me that they’ve changed their loyalties towards a certain character and I really don’t want that to happen.
7. The Kill Order James by Dashner
I liked the Maze Runner trilogy and I’m uncertain about prequels and if it will ruin my feelings for the Maze Runner.
8. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
This sounds like a suspenseful thriller filled with ghosts and everything I’m afraid of reading. Enough said.
9. The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
I read the first book in the series and I wasn’t impressed with it. I feel like if I read this, my opinion won’t change and I’m going have to drop the series.
10. The Host by Stephenie Mayer
I honestly put off reading this book because of Twilight. I loved Twilight in the beginning and a book separate from the themes within twilight sort of scared me. (Veronica: Anjie’s opinion of this book changed after she read it. Max Irons <3)
