Top Ten Tuesday: (Sort of) Intimidating Books

I’m intimidated by nothing so lets just call this list “ten books Emma has put off reading for literally years.”

  1. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke: It’s just so heavy. I literally have a copy but I just can’t imagine lugging it around.
  2. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin: I know, okay. I know.
  3. A Tale Of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones: I kind of don’t want to make it through her oeuvre.
  4. Any book by Robin McKinley: I just never get to hers. Partly because I spent years thinking she and Diana Wynne Jones were the same person.
  5. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma: My favorite author I’ve never read.
  6. Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando: Have a bad feeling it won’t be the book for me.
  7. Getting the Girl by Susan Juby: I don’t even know why.
  8. any book by Robin Wasserman: See number 5
  9. Prized by Caragh M. O’Brien: I want to love it and I WORRY
  10. More Classics I have read yet: I really do like classics. I’ve worked through most of Austen and a lot of Dickens. I think my next venture will be Wilkie Collins. Maybe this summer. I like the idea of reading a classic every summer and have been managing to for the last couple of years.
