Top Ten Most Intimidating Books
Oh, I have some intimidating books on my shelves. The reason why they intimidate me vary from their size, the plot is something I usually don't enjoy, I got it as a gift and I don't know if I'll like it, etc.
The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett ThomasI bought it two years ago when I was in Prague and started it around Octoberlast year but I couldn't get into it and until then it is sitting on my booshelf with its beautiful spine and I am not sure if I will pick it up ever again.
The Distant Hours by Kate MortonI got it in London in 2011 and I started it right away. Unfortunately I am a wuss when it comes to scary or creepy parts in books - I have a vivid imagination and when something gets creepy I tend to get nightmares. So I stopped and cannot bring myself to pick it up again which is annoying because I think about it quite often and wonder how it ends.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah HarknessI want to read this book so badly but I can't pick it up - don't ask me why.

Inkdeath by Cornelia FunkeIt's the last book in the Inkheart trilogy and I adore the first two books but when I'll read the third I will never ever experience reading this book for the first time and that saddens me.
anything by Charles Dickens
anything by Leo Tolstoy
The Near Witch by Victoria SchwabI read The Archived by Victoria earlier this year and adored it but I cannot get myself to reading the Near Witch because the blurb on the backcover sounds creepy.
So, I just got 7 books that intimidate me but even that's too many in my opinion and I now want to read at least one of those in 2013.
