Hello lovelies! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, comes to you after a long day of travel and a homecoming: Books I’m Avoiding On My TBR.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
This has been on my TBR forEVER and I’ve put it off because I am intimidated by it. There I said it. I want to read it so badly, but it scares me.
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
I’m avoiding this one because I’m nervous it is going to be boring. I’ve loved the other two Steinbecks that I’ve read, but for some reason, this one makes me nervous.
A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon
It’s just SO LONG and the last two books were a struggle for me.
The Plains of Passage by Jean M. Auel
I really enjoy this series, but for some reason, I’m finding it hard to continue with the next book. They’re long and a little repetitive and I guess I’m worried it is going to take too long to read and encroach on my other book time.
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling)
I’m afraid I am going to be disappointed by my Queen.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
It has just been so long since I read the first book, I don’t really even remember what happened. I remember really loving Divergent, but that was years ago.
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
I don’t want it to end 😦
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
My reading count is too low right now, and I’m nervous to commit to a series with all insanely long books even though I am excited about them…
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I need to finish a few of my other series before I start another one.
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
My roommate is obsessed with this series and keeps telling me that I’ll love it, but all of the books are so long and there are SO MANY (14 to be exact) and all of them are close to 1000 pages….. it’s a big commitment.
What books are you guys avoiding? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
