I picked three of the biggest books on my shelf, and it just so happens that they’re all about Russia. Apparently I find Russian literature intimidating, which doesn’t seem all that unreasonable. I mean seriously, these books could be doorstops. I’m sure they’re great reads—classics are usually classics for a reason—but my shoulder hurts from just imagining lugging these around in my bag.

I’m also intimidated by my upcoming half marathon at Disney World. My parents and I ran last year, but 13.1 miles just seems so long. I’ve been trying to keep up with my training schedule, but I hate running in cold weather, so my recents runs have been on the treadmill. Running for 2-3 hours on a treadmill is pretty intimidating, let me tell you. Luckily, tomorrow’s run is a quick 4 miles, and the weather is supposed to be unexpectedly warm, so I’m gonna make the most of it.

What sort of books intimidate you? What real-life things intimidate you? How do you overcome your trepidation and soldier on? Let me know!

New York wonders abound. This big book celebrates the High Line. A remarkable elevated park!

My Tome Topple TBR for round 5. I have started A conjuring of light by V. E. Schwab today. After I finish ACOL, I will start Inkheart by Cornelia Funke and if I still have time, then I will read The lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.

Je sais que plusieurs ont peur comme moi de Ken Follett, ses livres sont tellement gros!!!! Mais celui-ci me tente comme pas permis, et vous savez quoi, j'ai décidé de me jeter à l'eau!
Qui me rejoint pour une lecture commune d'un #kenfollet (quelque soit le titre et la langue) en Décembre?
Who is courageous enough? 😁💪 #lecturecommune #editionspeciale #livredepoche #lecturehivernale #bookandplaid #bigbooks #historique #historicalfiction #romans #lecture #serialreader

Today is the first day of the #TomeToppleChallenge and this is my not so ambitious tbr. If I finish this one, I just pick up another book I am in the mood for. 📚

Happy Friday everyone! I started Needful Things last week and I am enjoying it, but I'm also finding it to be a little slow. I'm only about 100 pages in though so maybe it'll pick up soon! I'm hoping to get a good chunk of it read this weekend! What are you planning to read this weekend? 😊

17 Nov 2017.
What books are you too intimidated to pick up?
For me, it’s the #InheritanceCycle. Look at these massive beasts. I think I developed extra muscles just lifting them into place for this photo.
I’ve read #Eragon and #Eldest but that was probably a solid 14 years ago so I’ll definitely need a refresher before I continue.
Day 17:
#AmpersandNov17: Intimidating

My books that qualify for #tometopple but this is not a TBR because every time I do one I jinx everything.

Starting this in five minutes with a huge book hangover from the amazing #beastsofextraordinarycircumstance which I 11/10 recommend.
