Books You’re Intimidated By:
I think this one might be a hard one. I never really think about these things!
Here goes nothing! 😐
1.) The Bird’s Nest by Shirley Jackson.
Or, any Shirley Jackson book really. I know I’ve already read, and
LOVED her book, We Have Always Lived In The Castle, but all of her
other books just seem so intimidating. Interesting, but intimidating!
2.) Portrait of a Lady by Henry James.
This book is on my Pop Sugar 2016 Reading Challenge TBR, but
I’ve been putting if off, because I’m scared to read it. I don’t know
why…I guess it’s because it’s a Classic, and I’m not really into reading
Classics. Plus I’m afraid it’s going to be too boring. The Plot is interesting,
and I don’t want it to be boring!
3.) Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
And every other play be William Shakespeare. The writing itself, makes
reading anything by Shakespeare intimidating. I know I’ve read things
from him in high school, but just thinking about trying out his more
famous works, is a little jarring…
4.) The Iliad by Homer.
I had to read The Odyssey, in high school. I did really like it, but I know
I was intimidated by the book, so even thinking about reading any thing
else by Homer, makes me want to run for the hills!
5.) The Lord of The Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Now, I’ve already had to read The Hobbit, in high school, and I actually
did enjoy it, but I don’t know if I could handle these three books. There’s
just so much going on, (I know that from watching the movies…) and I don’t
know if I can make it through. Maybe someday I’ll actually grow some balls
and pick them up, but for now…No Thanks, I’m staying away!
