Musing Mondays!


This week's Musing Mondays question is: Is there a particular book that is your nemesis–the book you’re determined to one day finish?

Nothing really comes to mind; if I don't finish a book for some reason it's unlikely that I'll pick it up again. There are a couple of series that I would like to tackle again, though, the first being Lord of the Rings; I've already read them all once, but didn't really enjoy them that much. Probably because I was in the midst of university at the time and rushed to finish them. I'd like to re-read them one day when I have more time, so I can take my time and enjoy them a little more.
Another series is A Song of Ice and Fire; I've read the first book, but it took me so long to get through it that I didn't even start the second one. I'd like to read the rest of the books in this series at some point, when I have more time.

  1. I've tried rereading Lord of the Rings... it makes me wonder how I ever did it the first time. =)

    1. I'm hoping it'll go better when I eventually get around to re-reading it :P

  2. I loved LoTR..of course when I first read it as a teenager I was under no time constraint.

    1. Yeah, when I read it hopefully I'll have a lot of time for it :)

  3. I sort of started with LoTR and couldn't get through the series...not my cup of tea.

    I think my nemesis would be 'A short history of nearly everything'- Bill Bryson. I've started and re-started it several times but I don't know why it's so difficult to just get done with it.

    1. I love the LoTR films, but the books were a little slow for me, but again, I was rushing to get them finished!

  4. Yeah, LOTR can be daunting.

  5. Lord of the Rings is a little hard to stomach when you're reading it in my opinion, it's difficult to really fully take it in because of the random breaks for song and such. It is a good read though and hopefully you get that chance.

  6. I've gotten through A Game of Thrones but like you haven't gotten to the second book in the series yet. My MM: http://daystarz.wordpress.com/2012/12/17/musing-mondays-2/
