There are so many fun book tag to do and I have trouble choosing which one to do every week haha. I came across this super short but pretty hard tag over at Jadeyraereads Booktube channel and knew I wanted to do this one today. So I have the Books I’ll Never Read Tag for you all. There are so many books being published every year and since we started blogging Candyce and I have so much more books on our radar than before. Unfortunately we will never be able to read all of the books so this seemed like an appropriate tag! Let’s get into the questions.
1. a really hyped book you’re not interested in reading
I had to think about this one for a little bit but I decided on Dumplin by Julie Murphy. There has been so more hype this year because Netflix adapted the book in to a movie. I’m not a big contemporary reader and this just doesn’t sound like something I really want to read. The movie I might still watch, that way I can still kinda see what all the hype is about haha. Another hyped book I’m on the fence about is The Hazelwood. I’ve heard so many negative things about this one and it doesn’t really sound like a book I would enjoy anymore. It was a Fairyloot book last year so I do own it, but I might actually unhaul it!
2. a series you won’t start/won’t be finishing
Not finishing series is something I HATE to do haha. But there are a couple of series I started reading and I’m pretty sure I won’t finish. First up is the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. The synopsis didn’t sound great to start with, but I got it quite cheap and everyone seemed to love it. In the end the book was okay but not that interesting so I won’t continue that series.
Another series I started is the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie. I did read the first book and started the second one. But I really couldn’t get into the second book and wasn’t all that interested in the series to start with. The premise sounded intriguing but also with way to much focus on romance and that’s not how I like my dystopian books. Oh, and I almost forgot, the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series is in my unhaul stack. I did read the first book but I’m not interested in continue those books.
3. a classic you’re not interested in reading
Haha, I’m not that interested in any classic to be honest. Candyce and I wanted to read 4 classics last year but in the end we didn’t even read 1! There are a couple of classics I would’ve liked to have read, but actually reading them doesn’t sound like something that will happen anytime soon. Lord of the Flies, The Catcher in the Rye, and To Kill a Mockingbird are a couple of classics I will probably never ever read.
4. any genres you won’t read
I do try most genres and find something to enjoy in them often. But there are a couple of genres I don’t read, adult romances is one of those genres. I don’t really like romance in most of my reads, I only read some fluffy contemporary YA books every now and then. Memoirs are a genre I don’t pick up either. I’m simply not interested in them!
5. a book on our shelf you’ll probably never actually read
Now this is the most confronting question out of the bunch! When I bought the books on my shelves, I did plan on reading them. But some of these books I’ll probably never read if I’m being completely honest. I have bought a couple of secondhand books all by the same Dutch author. The books are YA mysteries targeted at a pretty young audiences. I did try the first one but I put it down quite soon. If I’m being honest, I don’t think I will ever pick those books up, not while there are so many more interesting books on my shelves.
So that was the super short Books I’ll Never Read tag! I really enjoyed doing this tag, as I had to think about the questions for a bit. Do you have any books on your shelves you will probably never actually read? Let me know in the comments!
