Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten most intimidating Books

The ones I haven't read yet...

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin - This one is intimidating because of it's size (the whole series size too) and the fact that the series is not finished. It seems like an awful lot to have to remember while waiting for the next books to come out.

Divergent by Veronica Roth - I'm sure this series will be great, but it's been hyped up a lot so I'm nervous. I think I'll read it in October when the third book comes out.

Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan - I just don't want this to be bad. I've heard very mixed things about it and am nervous.

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling - Harry Potter was amazing and I've not heard very good things about this.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl - I really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures these books are so big so I was waiting for them to all come out first. Now I don't want to read them, because what if they aren't as good?

The ones that I have read...

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - This was so hyped up, but my boyfriend said it was really good and he's hard to please.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - I knew I would cry and I just didn't want to feel all the things.

The Diviners by Libba Bray - What a giant book. That was the only thing that was intimidating  It sounded amazing!

Graceling by Kristin Cashore - Another big book. I was also under some weird impression that I didn't like fantasy novels. Sometimes I'm done.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - This one was talked up a lot. People were falling over themselves to talk about how amazing it was. It's also a big one, so I was uncertain if I should read it.

The Broke and the Bookish is a group of college aged and twenty somethings that have an unhealthy obsession with reading and would spend every last penny on books even if it meant skipping a few meals. We are the people  who lurk in the library, buy handbags based on how many books can be stashed in them, and who refer to characters in books as if they are personal friends.
We sought after other bookish college students to share in our love for reading and were brought together by the College Students group on Goodreads that was created in September 2008. Our desire to share great books with each other in and our tendency to be opinionated and passionate about all things book related naturally led to the birth of The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.


  1. The Casual Vacancy is definitely not worth your time. I know that sounds harsh, but life's too short!

  2. good for you! these look so good!

  3. Divergent and Game of Thrones are both great! I'm so nervous to read The Casual Vacancy, though. It's been sitting on my bookshelf ever since it came out!

    Great Top Ten!
