Let’s chat about all those intimidating books on our TBR list. What intimidates you from your list?
I think what intimidates me most on my TBR list are the series. The long series, that have been out for a while and even where I have collected the books but haven’t read them yet! They definitely intimidate me more than the one-off books I have, first in series, etc.
These series where I have been collecting and not reading include The Hollows (Dead Witch Walking), Mercy Thompson (Moon Called), Dark Days (Nightwalker), and Dresden Files.
I have three different TBR lists, one for books I want to read, one for books to read next, and shelf love books. So many lists of books and so little time! For me, the most intimidating books are the next ones in the series when I didn’t really enjoy the first book. I can’t motivate myself to read a book I’m just not interested in.
Some that come to mind are Sapphire Blue (Precious Stones #2), Vanish (Firelight #2), Midnight Jewel (Glittering Court #2), and Starfall (Starflight #2). Do you see a trend here? Loads of second books that I will probably never read!
How about you? Any daunting books on your TBR?
