Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah, over at Biconic Book Worm. If you want to join in on it check out the topics for January at Topics for January 2018 topics. Today, we are counting down top 5 Intimidating books. Almost all the books on my list are books that I have heard great things about. And I personally can't seem to get myself read them. The reasons why they are intimidating are: I am afraid I won't like it or I will like them too much and won't know what to do with myself after The Size of the book The number of books in the series Too much hype.
In a first perusal, it felt like a pretty normal classic book where girls' only employment was to stay at home, learn drawing, music, other languages, read books and just wait to be married. While reading it, it had such a nondescript flow and I went through it smoothly. Only after finishing reading it, I realized all the subjects the book touched on. There are so many things in this book, death, poverty, passion, growth. The book captures the journey of how the girls grew to be little women. I feel like I would have stopped reading this book halfway through if not for everything that was happening in their mundane lives. In each chapter, something was happening and I wanted to know how it all turned out.
I find some of the classic books hard to read. I just cannot read some of them; I keep repeating the same sentences and lose track of the story, the main reason why I have not read 'Wuthering Heights' and 'To kill a Mockingbird' YET. Trust me. I tried reading them a COUPLE of times. So you can guess how apprehensive I about starting this book. Since I loved Jane Austen’s works, I picked this one because it was on similar grounds. Lucky for me, the narrator’s voice was so pleasant I was effortlessly invested in the story.
Jane Austen’s works are perhaps, my favorite among the classics genre. I loved reading all of her six published works. Persuasion is my favorite closely followed by Pride and Prejudice. I love diving into her world of courtships, dances and balls and the times, which I can only read about now. Her work have a pretty-wicked sense of wit and humor that just suit my taste.
