Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is ‘Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read‘ so here it is:
1. Les Miserables- Victor Hugo
It’s not so much the size that puts me off, but more the fact that it is a classic of that size. I feel I would struggle with the language used on the first page, let alone having to tackle a book of that size. I love the story though, and I would happily sing along to the musical any day of the week!
2. War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy
Now this book is more to do with the size… I just don’t think I would be able to read something of that size. I don’t think I would be a big fan of the story either.
3. The DaVinci Code- Dan Brown
Too much science-y maths complicated stuff in this book for my liking. It sounds, from what I have heard, very difficult to follow!
4. Bared To You- Sylvia Day
After reading 50 Shades of Grey, I think I have had enough of that genre to last me a lifetime!
5. Animal Farm- George Orwell
I’m not really sure I could struggle though a book about animals with a hidden message about politics… not my most favourite subject.
6. First Step 2 Forever- Justin Bieber
Why would I ever want to read this…?
7. 1984- George Orwell
Another one I think would be too much about politics for me to handle!
8. The Lovely Bones- Alice Sebold
I have heard this is a really good book, and I tried reading the first chapter, but it just made me so sad and I thought the male character was just so sick that I couldn’t read on unfortunately 😦
9. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas
Seen the film, and I was shaking and crying by the end, it was so horrific, I’m not sure i would be able to read the book and put myself through that again!
10. Naked Lunch- William S. Burroughs
I have heard really bad things about this book, and not only does it sound boring, but a lot of people who have recently tried to read have said they just could not get through it.
I apologise for lack of photos in this post 😦
