We have been having fun with these Top Ten Tuesdays, so we decide we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Starting this January Top Ten Tuesday will be hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s theme is all about books you’re no longer interested in. Now this was a pretty difficult one! I’m interested in so many books and while realistically speaking I’ll never read all of them, I still like to pretend I will… Yes, I like to fool myself. I took a peek at my Goodreads ‘to read’ shelf and tried to come up with 10 books I don’t really want to read anymore.
1. Alice in Zombieland #2, & #3 – Gena Showalter
I bought the first 3 books in this series because they were on sale, I loved the covers and the title sounded pretty interesting. Turned out the story was completely different than the story I had imagined. It was quite de let down and I realized that I will just never pick up the sequels.
2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children #2 & #3 – Ransom Riggs
I loved the concept of these books, the photos were amazing and I really wanted to love these books as much as everyone else seems to do. But unfortunately I didn’t really like the first book, the only thing I really liked were the pictures but they just weren’t enough. I already own the second and third book but I just know I won’t be picking them up.
3. Matched #2 & #3 – Ally Condie
It has been quite a while ago since I read Matched, I found out about this series when I first started reading blogs and I wanted to read all the recommendations. Unfortunately this was another one I just didn’t really like and while I would love to know how the story ends I just don’t care enough to invest the time to read two whole books.
4. Uglies – Scott Westerfeld
I started reading this first book in the series, I think it was recommended in the same post as Matched actually, but I couldn’t even get through the first 50 pages. I didn’t like the writing or the characters and while I kept telling myself I would pick the book back up again I guess I actually DNF’ed it and won’t be reading it anymore.
5. Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is one of my absolute favorite books ever and I want to love all her other books but that seems like it isn’t going to happen. I tried to read Eleanor & Park but I just couldn’t get into the story and I realized since then that I’m not even remotely interested in picking it back up.
6. The Nine Lives of Chloe King – Celia Thompson
I LOVED the tv show that was based on these books and when the omnibus for this series was on sale I knew I had to get it. Unfortunately it was pretty different from the series and I just didn’t like it as much. I’m not even sure if I kept the book and I think that says enough about my interest in it.
7. Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Levithan
While I still own this book and didn’t put it on the ‘unhaul’ pile, while thinking about it I have to admit I probably won’t ever read the book. I started reading it but couldn’t get very far and I never felt the urge to pick it back up again.
And I’m sorry to say it, but these were all I could come up with! Did you read any of these books? Should I still keep going with them? Let me know in the comments!
