Top Ten Tuesday #13

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Eight Most Intimidating Books

I really struggled with this one and almost didn't bother! I think this list sort of makes sense, it's a mix of books I'm scared to read because I want to love them, books that are next in a series where I loved the first one(s) and worry it won't be as good or books that I flat-out hyperventilate every time I try to read them!

The Wise Man's Fear - Patrick Rothfuss

Daughter of Smoke & Bone - Laini Taylor

A Million Suns - Beth Revis

Drums of Autumn - Diana Gabaldon

Throne of Glass - Sarah J Maas

Ulysses - James Joyce
Cinder - Marissa Meyer

A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
What are your most intimidating books? Leave me a link so I can see I'm not alone with some of these!


  1. I'm planning to read A Million Suns, Cinder, and Throne of Glass this summer. :) I've read Daughter of Smoke and Bone recently, and it wasn't as great as I expected it to be (even though it was an okay read).

    Nice list you have there!

  2. I still haven't read A Million Suns or Cinder either. I just haven't gotten around to them yet, but I do understand why they'd be intimidating! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. I was afraid I might not like Cinder because of the Sci-fi elements, but this book is freaking fantastic :) Throne of glass is just as awesome and I also really liked Daughter of shadow and bone.


  4. I loved Cinder & Throne of Glass. I tried Daughter of Smoke & Bone but I didn't get very far before I put it down, maybe I'll give it another go in the future sine everyone seems to love it :)

    Here's my Top Ten

  5. Daugher of Smoke and Bone and Throne of Glass are really good! They totally deserved the hype :)
    I've read most of Ulysses in a university class last fall with a super-experienced, 87-year-old professor who is a total Joyce enthusiast, and it was a blast! I imagine reading it on your own is quite a task though and I get why you're intimidated by it!
    I gave Rothfuss' first book to a friend for her birthday recently and that was the first time I actually read the back description. I kind of wanted to keep it for myself :P Definitely on my priority list now!
    I get being scared because of a hype! That's why I also put Cinder on my list.
    Great picks! Thanks so much for checking out mine yesterday :)
