Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Most Intimidating Books.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’ve read Half-Blood awhile ago and I was not happy. I’m planning on skipping the next three books in the series and start with Apollyon. Hopefully I can see past all the Vampire Academy similarities in Apollyon to the story beneath. Everyone loves Apollyon and I feel so much pressure to actually enjoy reading Apollyon.
2. The Program by Suzanne Young
I was not into Suzanne Young’s other books, A Need So Beautiful and A Want So Wicked. However, I’ve heard so many good things about Suzanne Young’s newest book, The Program, and I want to give her books another chance. It’s so intimidating though; I feel so much pressure to like The Program.
3. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
I enjoyed Shatter Me, but I have this strange feeling that Unravel Me will give me mixed feelings. I don’t want to not like it – I can already picture all the Adam and Warner fans coming at me. :P
4. Prodigy by Marie Lu
While everybody else loved Legend, I was pretty meh about it. I’ve heard that Prodigy is a lot better than Legend, but I’m too intimidated by it. What if I have a totally different opinion apart from everybody else?
5. Goddess by Josephine Angelini
I kinda, sort of, not really enjoyed Starcrossed and Dreamless. Goddess will either save or break the series for me, and that is intimidating.
6. False Memory by Dan Krokos
Everyone loved this book. What if I didn’t? Enough said.
7. Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers
I’m not really into historical novels, so I’m afraid to read Grave Mercy. And man, Grave Mercy is one thick book too.
8. The Archived by Victoria Schwab
Everybody loved this book. I can feel the pressure, can’t you?
9. Golden by Jessi Kirby
I’ve read Jessi Kirby’s two other books, In Honor and Moonglass and thought that they were just plain okay. Hopefully Golden is as amazing as everyone says it is!
10. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Okay, don’t kill me guys, but I didn’t really like Shadow and Bone the first time I read it. This is why I’m currently doing a re-read of it. This re-reading of Shadow and Bone will most likely also affect my rating of Siege and Storm and whether I like Siege and Storm or not.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten most intimidating books?
