Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes (both on YouTube). This week’s theme is “books you’re intimidated by.” You’ll notice some trends in my books that I’m intimidated by. Most of them are big books, but even more are adult books. The adult category kind of scares me because of its drier style and slower pace. I’m used to the go-go-go of YA and I’m afraid it’s kind of spoiled me. So without any further ado, here are the top 5 books I’m intimidated by!
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
This book (series) is huge! It’s high fantasy and adult and just absolutely terrifying to me! It seems like the words and style would just be really hard to read.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
This book is also huge (notice a trend?), but it’s more the dry, adult writing style that freaks me out.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
Anotheer big book. It’s the intricacy of this one that intimidates me, though. I’ve heard the magic system is very complex and scientific and I’m afraid I’ll get lost in the details and get bored.
Me Before You by JoJo Myoes
An emotional adult book that’s known to rip your heart out and stomp on it? Sound absolutely terrifying to me!
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Like Me Before You, I’m afraid of extreme emotional overload with this one and that it will trigger my depression.
