So I know that I just recently did the Intimidating TBR Tag, but I didn’t nearly go into all of the books that I’m intimidated by. I figured this would be a good way to show you how much of a scaredy cat I am when it comes to reading.
Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson: I’m intimated because a) it’s huge b) it’s high fantasy c) I probably won’t understand anything and it’ll take me a year to read.
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee: To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my all time favorite books. I’m scared to read this because I heard rumors that one of my favorite fictional characters turns out to be an asshole and I’m not quite fond of that. I know I need to give it a read soon, but I’ll take my time.
Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: The only reason this is on my list is because I read Obsidian and hated it. I hated it so much. But I soon realized that I was expecting way too much of this series. It was so hyped up about it being amazing and that Daemon is so swoonworthy and I didn’t catch any of that. When I start it back up, I need to go in with low expectations and with the idea to just have fun and not take it so seriously.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: The hype has me on this one. I’m scared I won’t like it because of how dang hyped this book is. It’s a book I know I’ll enjoy, but still.. the hype usually gets me.
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith: Plain and simple — it’s J.K. Rowling. What if I read this and I don’t like it? You can’t not like J.K. Rowling. It’s a sin.
There you have it — completely random but it’s there. I need to get over my fear of big books and just go for it. I’m reading Passenger now which will be the chunkiest book I’ve read this year, which is pretty sad to me. Let 2016 be the year where I get over my fear!
