Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there!
This week’s topic is –
Top Ten Books that were hard for me to read- pick your reason why-
I came up with a few different reasons and here they are-
KEPT THINKING OF THE MOVIE
10. The Princess Bride
9. Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption (The Shawshank Redemption)
8. The Body (Stand By Me)
DIDN’T LIKE THE CHARACTERS
7. The Shadow Year
6. The End of The Affair
5. The Dinner
4. The Fault in Our Stars (kids with cancer)
3. Skipping A Beat (young husband dying)
2. The Invention of Wings (slavery)
SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME
1. The Shining
I really liked The Body (but like you kept thinking about the movie!) but the extended section where Gordy tells a story? I ended up skipping it!
Me too. I just love that movie!
I kept thinking of the movie too with “The Princess Bride” but I still enjoyed it. 🙂
Ha, I love your categories! I love Stephen King, but he (and his son) keep scaring me to death…
I have to read Joe Hill- can you recommend a good one?
I think NOS4A2 is the best so far (super, super scary) — and if you like graphic novels, his Locke & Key series is amazing.
Thanks- might be looking for something mildly scary though!
Big yes to The Princess Bride! As I read the book, I felt like I was watching a much duller version of the movie where I didn’t like any of the characters as much. (That’s still true. Sorry, book version.)
