Top Ten Books Most Intimidating

This weekend TTT’s idea is Top Ten Books Most Intimidating. As for me, most of it was because the content or the themes. Here they are:

Vampire and pararom novels, such as:

  1. Twilight Series – Stephanie Meyer. Dunno, its just that i’m not into Edward nor Bella. And most of the reviews i read throwed not-likely-good comments about the books and the movie. Its not like i avoid vampire themes, i read The Historian and i want to read Dracula from Bram Stoker, but i  think the original storytelling of vampire things more interesting than the modern one.

  1. The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices Series – Cassandra Clare. First, it was pararom theme. Then, it was series. Its was kinda fanfiction too, isn’t it? I think i’ve heard it from someone.

Just don’t wanna read it

3. Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy –  E.L James. Like i told you above, i just don’t wanna read it.

Detective, thriller and mystery

4. Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan DoyleThere are many of my friends from my book-blog club loves Sherlock Holmes. Loves Benedict Cumberbatch. I used to read a simple-theme books but this series was not. But maybe its just the case that i still doesn’t give these books a try.

5. Agatha Christie NovelsWhy are there so many detective’s novels as a long series??

  1. Detective Conan – Aoyama Gosho. Its not like i haven’t read this manga series. I just cant excitingly enjoyed the manga. Too-long means too much for me.

Sci-fi Novels

7. Star Trek series. I dont live in Star Trek era and never been introduced to Star Trek. 

  1. Star Wars series. Idem reason.

The content  and its physical appearence intimidates me

I choose this cover because it looks complicated as this picture -.-a

  1. Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell. What was this book about? No one ever share it with me but maybe when i have much time and it catch my mood, i’ll try to read it.

Motivation books/novels

  1. Negeri 5 Menara or The Land of Five Towers – A. Fuadi. A local (an indonesian) trilogy novels. Once a while, motivation novels booming in Indonesia and its just like i’m tired of the pattern and the writing. Sorry to say but no offense.

    • aku tipe pembaca semua kecuali vampir (lebih mending nonton), detektif, misteri dan sci-fi #gagalpaham
      kadang aku ga ikutan histeris sama buku bestseller, dan yang bakal menggoda aku banget itu sejenis hisfic. Hehhe🙂
      but i’m trying to be open. Really.🙂

  2. Q pengen baca Cloud Atlas. Filmnya udah punya sih, tapi blm nonton, hahaha. Pengen tau aja kenapa orang2 bilang 3 sutradara Cloud Atlas terlalu ambisius untuk memfilmkan novel yg un-film-able ini.

    Q sih suka baca Agatha Christie. Kl mau serial detektif, mending nonton Sherlock yg dari BBC & diperanin sama Benedict Cumberbatch. Suer, tanya sama Ren deh, you’ll get Sherlocked. Keren bgt Sherlock pake setting modern: punya blog, sms-an sama Adler.

    Baca semua Twilight sama 50 Shades. Menurutku sih ga ada literary merit-nya. Tapi kok tetep dibaca? Penasaran aja. Abis itu udah. Hahaha. Sama aja sih itu novel sama fanfiction-turned-novel-nya sama aja. Q pernah baca novel dari fanfic Twilight, Beautiful Bastard, sama aja edehnya. Fanfiction sih bagusan yg pendek2, ada nih yg keren: The Nietzsche Classes.

  3. sama, aku juga tidak pernah menikmati baca buku motivasi (apa pun genrenya) dan buku vampire termasuk twilight dan city of bones. Cerita twilight dan city of bones terlalu nanggung fantasinya dan terlalu hambar juga jika harus disebut surealis.😀
