Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Most Intimidating Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

Top Ten Most Intimidating Books

  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - I will probably never actually pick this book up from my shelf. It's sitting there personalized and all but after listening to the author tell her story about what she endured for this book, I just can't or don't want see her pain in the pages. 
  • The Diviners by Libba Bray - I have multiple copies of this novel, but it's so BIG that I just don't see myself fitting in it plus I love Libba and I'm afraid that I might not like it. 
  • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo - This is the type of novel that just doesn't call me and not even the movie does. It just seems like I wont follow along very well. 
  • The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien - I have seen the movies multiple times and DONT GET THEM, so I can only imagine the books would confuse me even more. 
  • Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - This book was a NO NO for me for a long time, then I ended up reading it as pat of a book club read and LOVED IT, its one of my all-time favorites. But it was hard to crack open the 1st page. 
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - I'm not sure if I'll read this one, I even have a personalized copy from when I met John Green. See my 1st John Green book was also part of book club and it was Looking for Alaska which I thought was OK, I just didn't enjoy the ending. So I'm afraid I might have the same feelings towards this one. 
  • Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick - I don't want to read the end! Nope, wont do it! 
  • City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare - I was extremely pleased with how City of Glass ended and just don't think I can read anymore after COG. What if! 
  • Any book by Ellen Hopkins - Intense, that is the main reason I don't think I will ever read one of Hopkins' books. I have met and listen to her various times and the story she tells is incredible. I don't know if I can handle reading something so real, plus the verse is intimidating just by itself. 
  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth - I AM AFRAID! Its the end, I don't want it to end. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series and just cant part with it yet. Plus I'm afraid Veronica might write something in the book that I just cant handle. 


  1. Great list! I also got Forbidden on my list.
    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  2. I have checked Finale out from the library twice and returned each time without reading it.

  3. I was almost going to include Ellen Hopkins' books in my list but then didn't. The Fault in Our Stars is an amazing book so I totally get the intimidation that you now feel. And I have yet to read Insurgent so I'm safe for now. Ha! =D

  4. I agree when it comes to "The Fault In Our Stars". It made my list too.

    Tsuki's TTT

  5. I will have my list up on Thursday but Forbidden will definitely be on the list. It just one of those books you are like...HOW am I going to like this? But then it just blows you away.

  6. I plan on reading City of Fallen Angels this summer. I'm excited to read it, but I know what you mean.
