Books I'm Intimidated By : T5W

Top 5 Wednesday is hosted by Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes and you can find the Goodreads group here.

It's time for another Top 5 Wednesday! This weeks topic is Books You're Intimidated By, now for me this could be almost any fiction book over 500 pg's or a bigger non-fiction book.  So without further ado here are the books I'm intimidated by.

Fall Of Giants by Ken Follett

I ended up getting this one on a kindle sale, but have yet to read it because it is 985 pg's and that is a lot to read at once on a kindle. I will get to it, and I am  hoping to start it sometime this summer. 

The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel

I have this one in paperback and I've started it multiple times and I love the story of it, but I just can't seem to get through it. I'm hoping in May to get the audio book and just follow along with it.

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

I started watching the BBC tv show of this on Netflix, but decided to stop and wait until I read the book... But I'm thinking about finishing up the tv series and then reading the book after since it's been over a year since I started watching it. 

The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

I would really like to read more by Dickens, because I love his Christmas stories. I'm intimidated by this one for multiple reasons, its old english, it's a classic and it's 900 pg's.. But if I can I think I'm going to listen to it on audiobook. Maybe sometime closer to the end of the year. 

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow

I couldn't not mention this one. It is my most recent addition to the intimidating pile.I love the musical and it's made me become very interested in the founding fathers again. 
 I would really like to get to this one in August if possible while I have a month off from College.

Those were my picks. What are your picks for this week? If you've read any of these books, then please let me know how they were. 


  1. The Monuments Men is so boring. I gave up on that as well.

    1. It's rather disappointing considering how much I love the movie.
