Books usually don't intimidate me, but I was quite nervous to pick these up. The cool thing, though? Once I did start to read them, I liked them! So don't be scared by the reviews or size or content. Try it. If you don't like it, you can find something else.
A classic so many people love. What if I’m not all that enchanted by it?
Again, an intimidating classic.
A beautiful tale, but what if it is just too much fantasy for me to handle?
My husband’s favorite book. What if I don’t like it? Will my husband think I am a bad person?
I think the title says it all… great expectations for a book loved by many so what if it doesn’t live up to MY expectations?
This book has so many metaphors and analogies so what if I don’t understand what I am supposed understand? (Luckily I read this as I was teaching a unit on the Cold War so I was able to put it all together and help my students do the same.)
A big book that soooooooo many people like. Will my students hate me if I don't like it?
Epic book made into an epic movie (at least for its time) but what if I don’t understand all the military stuff?
Hemingway is a legend in the literary world so to read a book he wrote with so much heart & angst is overwhelming.
I feel like this is at the top of literary achievement and that is scary. This is the one book on this list that I haven’t even attempted to pick up because it is so intimidating. Ahhhhhh!
