Hello guys !
So today is Wednesday, this means that it is time for me to do another T5W. It is a weekly feature created By Lainey @ Gingerreadslainey with a different theme each week. It is hosted now by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. For more information, you can check the Goodreads group.
This week’s theme is: BOOKS YOU’RE INTIMIDATED BY.
P.s: The covers are direct links to the GoodReads pages.
My oh my ! This week’s topic is a very interesting one because I don’t get intimidated by books easily, I’ll dive head first in
any book any fiction novel you hand me but there are some few exceptions to that rule. There’s first the 700pages (more like 600) mark, if a book is over that I feel like I’d drawn in it, ad there’s also High Fantasy, to me, it is like that guy who loves looking at dogs but is scared to death to approach them. Yeah, that’s me. So, that’s mostly what this list will contain :
5- AN EMBER IN THE ASHES – SABAA TAHIR
Hhhh. You’re going to laugh. Wanna know why? Because I don’t have a reason for this one. It just intimidates me, okay? I swear I don’t even understand it myself, so don’t even try.
4- YOU – CAROLINE KEPNES
Internal conversation with me, myself, and I: This book is so creepy. – Yes, but it sounds so fascinating. – But, it is so dark. – Oh, shut up, you hypocrite, you love dark books (sometimes). – But, HE IS A STALKER.- Okay, but … Yeah, I admit, it’s going to give us nightmares.
No seriously, I’ll eventually gather enough courage to pick it up.
3- Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
SO LONG. Why? Just whyyyy? I’m dying to read it because I love the premise but the length has been discouraging me everytime. Every book is freaking 800 pages or longer. Ain’t nobody got time for that. (Except maybe in the summer haha)
2- MISTBORN – BRANDON SANDERSON
Or every Brandon Sanderson book ever. Because High Fantasy. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Fantasy, but I’m more into Urban Fantasy than High Fantasy. Actually, I can’t say that, because I’ve never read a High Fantasy novel before (Or did I ?) I want to though. And I’m going to. Soon. I promise.
1- A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE – GEORGE R. MARTIN
Again, 1000 pages. What the hell? I’m obsessed with the tv-show (24th PLEASE COME FASTER) and I know it is utterly different from the books and I WANT to read the books, but the page count is overwhelming.
What are some books that intimidate you?
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
