This weeks top 5 Wednesday is some of the books on my TBR pile that intimidate me some way or another, I only have a few so lucky this is only a quota of 5.

 

1.Les Misérables

I am currently reading this book – actually I have been reading it for the last 4 months and I am just over 400 pages in so a third as it’s a 1200 page book! It’s not the sheer size of this bad boy but the text is minute and every 5 -10 words I am looking in the dictionary for the definition – so I am just hoping to finish this book in 2016.

2.

Outlander (Outlander, #1)

I have heard so much great things about this series but the first one is definitely a chunker and then if I do enjoy it there are more books in the series of a similar size – so this is definitely a series that you would have to commit to.

3.A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

I love love love the series  (Can’t wait for season 6 on Monday) The books once again are massive and the rest of the books are of a similar size – But I am not sure if I would get confused with all the characters…I mean I have trouble keeping up with all the killings and families in the series let alone the book.

4.

The Goldfinch

I have had this on my TBR pile for a while….you may see there is a recurring theme here…. they are all massive books. My friend not so long ago listened to this on Audio and wasn’t a massive fan of it, I think she gave it 2 stars. So I am really apprehensive to commit the time in reading this.

5.Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

This series has so much hype surrounding it and I am a bit apprehensive to read it in case it doesn’t live up to my expectations.

That’s my top 5 most intimidating books/series. I will eventually get through them but the real question is when? as there are so many books recommended to me and new ones are always published.

  1. At the end of each game of thrones book, there are all of the houses and the family’s relations and a brief description and their symbol and stuff. It helps a bunch, and each book is updated in order to keep up with all the deaths and marriages and stuff.
