Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Books For People Who Liked X Book. But as I said two weeks ago, I'm not so good at these types of comparisons. So I chose: Top Ten Most Intimidating Books.
1) War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy - Yeah. Enough said.
2) The Conte of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas - Because before I read any of the Song of Fire and Ice series this was one of the biggest books I've ever thought about reading. 1116ish pages (depending on which publication you get).
3) A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin - Although I'm not quite intimidated by this as I might once have been since I'm actually close to reading this one, it's still massive, coming in at 1276 pages.
4) The Art of War by Sun Tzu - Again with enough said.
5) Fifty Shades of Gray by EL James - Yeah, so this book is EVERYWHERE, but not one that's actually on my TBR list.
6) Les miserables by Victor Hugo - I'm not really sure why. It's not particularly long or anything.
7) Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes - One I've wanted to read since the days of Wishbone.
8) Cyrano De Bergerac by Edmond Rostand - Another one that I've heard referenced probably a million times and haven't read personally.
9) The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri - Another enough said.
10) Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis - Because I tried to read these once and didn't get very far.
So that's my Top 10 Most Intimidating Books. What are your top 10 most intimidating books? Or...what 10 books would you recommend for someone who likes book X? Let me know! And I promise I'll try not to cheat next week, or the week after, or the week after that.
