Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (September 3rd, 2019) topic: Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I wasn’t reading YA when the whole dystopian craze hit (although I did read Hunger Games), so this just passed me by and I never gave it a thought. I bought this maybe three years ago, and I’m scared to read it because everyone hates the ending with a passion. I’ve just kind of lost interest in it.
Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
I know, I know! Calm down – put your pitchforks away! I have the beautiful anniversary edition of this one but I haven’t started it because there is no third book. I’m scared it will leave me with a big cliffhanger. If anyone knows if these books can be read without the third book (and not cry for weeks on end), let me know!
The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials #1) by Phillip Pullman
Do you ever feel like you keep putting off a book for years on end for NO REASON AT ALL. This is one of those books. I know I would enjoy it and yet… here we are..In my thirties and still haven’t read this one.
Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
I grew up on stuff like Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, – basically any trash teen drama, I was there. I’ve also seen stuff like Gossip Girl – but I’ve never seen Pretty Little Liars, or read it. I’ve been picking the series up at thrift stores, but it’s a long ass series. I’m a little scared I’ll hate it – but part of me also thinks it will be a really fun, trash read (I mean that in the best way).
Marked (House of the Night #1) by P.S. Cast and Kristen Cast
This is another one I’ve been grabbing books from the series when I see them at thrift stores. I know this series is super loved and super hated – there doesn’t seem to be an in-between. Like Pretty Little Liars, I thought this might be just a fun series read. Not looking for amazing literature – just a good time but I’m nervous to start because again there are so many damn books in the series and I already bought a ton of them LOL
A Discovery Of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I know a lot of people love this series but honestly; to me, it just seems like another version of Twilight which I have no interest in at all. I love witches and vampire but this one is not grabbing me and I feel it just has been shoved at me too many times.
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
This is another book that has been everywhere in the past years with the Netflix show. I’m the kind of person that the more I see something talked about, and with all the controversy surrounding this, it makes me lose interest. I might’ve read it at a certain time but now I’m kind of over it.
Roseblood by AG Howard
I read another book by AG Howard and it has turned me off of anything else she might write. I’m really sorry if you love this author and her books. They weren’t for me. And I can honestly say that the time I spent reading it is time I will never have again.
Shadowhunter Series by Cassandra Clare
There are just way too many books. They do look like something I would like but playing catch up is not something I really want to do.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I’ve seen all the movies once and I will never watch them again. It was just… no. A friend lent me the first book and I couldn’t get pass the first page. It’s a hard pass for me.
