Ten Top Tuesday(7): Intimidating Books
1. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand:
This book is massive, which I have read books around the same size. I am more worried that I will get to the last page and just not get it. Since it is philosophical and we don't get along. I even own it, but it is
definitely a someday book.
2. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein:
This book's description screams a book that I would enjoy. It isn't that huge, but there is so much hype. I really don't want to not read this book, but I am afraid that the hype is overrated. I got it from the library, so I will hopefully read it soon.
3. Everneath by Brodi Ashton:
Once again, a book that I would love. Every review, that I have seen, is like a must read and I have had issues with retelling of Persephone, so I am thinking about getting it from the library.
4. Ulysses by James Joyce:
I really want to read this book, because it sounds interesting. The fact is that my University has a course just on this book, so I am slightly intimidated by this.
5. Gates of Paradise by Melissa De La Cruz:
I am anxious that this will not be a good end to the series, so I have been putting it off. I can pretend that the ending never happened, if I have never actually read the book.
6. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell:
I adore Eleanor & Park, so I am worried that this book will not be as good.
7. Moby Dick by Herman Melville:
One of my close friends hates this and another one loves this. So I am torn if I will like it.
8. Persuasion by Jane Austen:
I loved For the Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund, which is a retelling of this book. I also liked Pride & Prejudice. I am just worried that I will not like it as much.
9. Nevermore and other books by Neil Gaiman:
I have only read Stardust, which I love love love. A lot of my friends adore him and I am just afraid that I won't like his other books.
10 A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I am actually currently reading this book. I am afraid that I won't like it or that it will not live up to the hype.
