This week is intimidating reads. I feel like the books I choose this week will be along a similar theme. They will either be considered a “classic” or are very large.
1. The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
I read The Virgin Suicides by him. The writing is fantastic but it’s a little dry. I really want to get into this one but I feel like I need to be in the right mind set and mentally prepare myself.
2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
It’s a classic that I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I really enjoyed the movie with Fassbender in it. I think it’s intimidating because I know the writing style is different in “classic” novels and can’t necessarily be read quickly.
3. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
I picked it up because it was considered a banned book. I find that a little intimidating but also exciting.
4. The Game of Thrones series by George R.R. Martin
The series is large and I find that intimidating. Not only is the series large but the books are huge too!
5. The Diviners by Libba Bray
It’s a large book. I’ve picked it up multiple times but can’t seem to get into it but I really want to. Sometimes books are just so big that holding it is a task haha.
