Books I’m Intimidated By

Books I’m Intimidated By

Big books scare me. There. I said it. I don’t like picking up big books as I’m worried they’ll take me a while to get through and I prefer reading things quickly. Unfortunately, there are some big books out there that look good, and I do still plan to read them. They just intimidate the hell out of me.

And that’s not the only thing about certain books that intimidates me. It’s just the main reason. So I just wanted to do a quick post talking about some of these books. Hopefully, you guys can tell me how amazing they are and make me want to pick them up sooner!

Series I Want To Re-Read (And Hopefully Finish)

Series I Want To Re-Read (And Hopefully Finish)

This was a post a long time in the planning. I was originally going to write it, last summer, I think? And I’ve since started my re-reads of some of these series. But I was thinking of content that I wanted to create, and this was one that still stuck in my mind. So, here we go.

These are all series that I read the first books of a few years ago now. Time has gone on and I’ve always meant to pick up the next books and read on. Only, it’s now reached a point where I can’t really remember what happened in the first book. so I need to re-read that before I can even think about moving on.

It’s a common book-lovers problem, but I’m not usually someone who re-reads before reading the latest instalment in a series. I’ve got too many books to be able to do that. But these are books where I can’t move on yet. One of them I got the second book recently thinking it would be fine, I went to start it and was completely lost. Yeah. That was no fun. So, there’s six series here and where I stand currently, I recommend them all.

Rambling On and On aka the Never Ending TBR

Rambling On and On aka the Never Ending TBR

I’m pretty sure that’s how it feels most of the time.

Like we’ll never get through every book we own. And that’s both a relief and also a nightmare because imagine all the stories we could miss because we have so many other stories and- Yeah, I’m gonna stop there and not drop us all into an existential crisis. That happens enough when I’m trying to sleep.

Mini TBR – January 2021

Mini TBR – January 2021

So, I’ve decided to start doing monthly TBR posts! Not a full TBR, I don’t like picking out a certain number of books each month. I always wind up getting through the books too quickly then having to throw a few more on. I prefer making them as I get through the current pile. But I wanted to be sharing what I’m reading with you guys this year.

So every month I’ll list a few books from my next – or current – pile that I know I should be getting through in that month as well as any books I plan to read for book clubs, review etc.

This first post was hard as my next pile has 15 books on so it’s probably going to be following me into February too. So these books are all from near the top of the pile, but, as I said before, isn’t them all.
