I WILL NOT READ. EVER.

5f295-toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly blogging meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You kind find out more about it here. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books You Will Never Read.

The_Fault_in_Our_StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I don’t think I’d want to read a romance about kids with cancer anyway, but now…the idea just feels a bit too close to home. If I do end up reading this, it will be years from now. When I’m an “adult”.

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

This has more to do with the author than the  actual book. I’m not too fond of the author’s various opinions, and I don’t want to support that.

I thought the idea was interesting, so I read the first one. It bored me to tears. In a burst of foolish hope, I read the second one. It also bored me to tears. People I’ve talked to said that the third is the most boring of the lot, so, no read. It’s completely predictable, too.

Pretty much anything by Sarah Dessen

I got her entire stack of books one year for Christmas, and I found all of them so boring that I couldn’t finish any of them. I don’t think I’ll be giving it a shot again.

Twilightbook

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Honestly, I just don’t see the point of reading this. Not only is it a straight-on romance, it’s a love triangle, and it just honestly seems so…fluffy and air-headed. Not really my cup of tea. If I read a book about vampires or werewolves, I want there to be blood.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I don’t want to read a depressing book. Not now, not ever. Everyone tells me that this book is fantastic, but it’s…depressing. So, no. Sorry.

Eldest

Eldest by Christopher Paolini

I tried to read and enjoy Eragon, I just…couldn’t. I found it very boring, and I couldn’t even finish it. So reading the second book is out of the question.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

I tried to read this a few years ago, and couldn’t. It seemed to be the typical, cliched angsty teen story,but the main character’s a princess.

The Edge of the Shadows by Elizabeth George

I read the first two books in the series, and both were so boring and poorly written. They have a sense of being “dumbed-down”, which is very annoying. This series has the feel of a good author trying to write YA and not being good at YA.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

I enjoyed the first two books in the series, I really did. But then someone thought it was perfectly okay to have a very loud conversation about the end of this book in a Barnes and Noble, effectively ruining it for me. I don’t think I’ll be able to actually finish it now.

This was hard for me. I tend to give books a chance, like, even if the first one bores me, I’ll still read the second, just in case it’s better, or if it’s the only book in the series, I’ll finish it. It’s very, very rare that I won’t give a book a chance.

Happy Tuesday,

  1. I’m a huge Sarah Dessen fan but her last couple of books were a total miss for me, I was praying for them to end. I also thought about reading the Princess Diaries but I decided against it, there’s just too many books in the series I don’t think I could finish them.

  2. I love Elizabeth George’s Inspector Lynley books, but I’ve never tried her YA. I just wasn’t sure how she would translate into that genre. Looks like I made the right choice. I’m with you on the Book Thief! I haven’t read Divergent but I’ve heard from many people that they didn’t like that third book.

  3. I read Ender’s Game and enjoyed it without knowing anything about the author – now though I don’t really want to look at the rest of the series.
