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.
Reached by Ally Condie
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.
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 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.
