Top Ten Tuesday #34: Books I’ve Lost Interest In

TTT

Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  I knew instantly that I wanted to take part in this weekly meme because who doesn’t love making lists?

This week’s (May 26, 2020) topic is: I wasn’t feeling this week’s prompt, so I’m going with Books I’ve Lost Interest In.

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston
I think this is a case of hearing too many mediocre reviews from people I trust and over time my hype just dwindled.  I haven’t unhauled this one yet because it’s an OC exclusive and it’s pretty t LOL

Divergent by Veronica Rossi
Nope, I’ve never read it.  I did buy the series at one point but I’m kind of over it at this point.

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
Owlcrate strikes again. Every single one of my friends hated this one.  They either said it was just terrible writing or it flat-out offended them, so I guess I’m planning on unhauling.

Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
I read the first couple books and they were cheesey fun, but I’m mostly lost interest.  I think it’s time to unhaul.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu
I don’t have a clue what this is about anymore and I don’t seem to care.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
I got this because it was all over the bookish community and I was new.  It’s not something that would ever be for me.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer
I feel terrible listing this one, but I honestly never had interest in this one.  I just convinced myself that I did because I love the author.  Ever do that?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I loved the first book when I read it, but I never continued and now I’m just kind of over it.  Plus, the author keeps adding new books, when it was supposed to be over – I hate that.

Amber & Dusk by Lyra Selene
Lied to myself that I cared about this book because it came in an Owlcrate.  I just really don’t.

The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano
I swear I like Owlcrate most of the time LOL But it’s their fourth appearance on this list for a book of the month.  I want to want to read it – does that make sense? No? Cool.

Am I making a mistake on any of these? Let me know! Maybe you can convince me!

  1. Amber & Dusk has been sitting on my shelf for awhile now because of a book box but I feel like you on it. I don’t think I will ever get to it, ha.

  2. I also lost interest in Vampire Academy and The Darkest Minds. But I finished the Renegades Series. And yes, I did it for my love for the author. 🙂 🙂 But honestly, you’re not missing much for not continuing the series. 🙂

  3. If I’m honest, none of these strike me as a book I’d pick up and read on my own, except Miss Peregrine (I did buy the book and was reading with with my son, but we both lost interest, haha). I would like to re pick up at least that book one day!

  4. Food for thought: I 5-starred Miss Peregrine when I first read it, but I didn’t continue either, and a few years later I couldn’t even remember why it was 5 stars. Then the movie (which I know is divisive among fans) revived my interest so I reread it and loved it just as much as before, and this time I read the next 2. I didn’t like them as much, but I did enjoy reading them. (of course, now I am suffering from similar fatigue/forgetting the details, and wondering if I gotta reread the trilogy to enjoy book 4+)

  5. I have this problem a lot, I lose interest in books after having them on my TBR sometimes for ages! The Young Elies probably falls in that category for me too…

  6. I never read Divergent either, and I don’t think I ever will. And I was tempted by Renegades for the same reason — I loved the Lunar books and tried to convince myself to pick up Renegades, but in reality, I just knew I wasn’t interested. The Miss Peregrine books — well, I read and really liked the original trilogy, but yes, it was supposed to be done! There are a few series like that, where I’ve thought they were over, and then they weren’t, and I usually don’t go back.

  7. I lost interest in Divergent too. I’ve only read the first book and then I got hugely spoiled for the final book so I haven’t picked it up since. I keep thinking maybe I’ll continue the series because I have them all in physical copies, but I’m not sure.

  8. I find it so interesting how much I agree with all of the books you’ve listed! I definitely think you’re making all the right choices!

    I thought I was interested in Renegades too, so I borrowed it from a friend. When over a year passed and I still had never once had the desire to read it, I finally realized it was never gonna happen and returned the book to my friend. But as for the rest of these I either read book one and then wasn’t interested in continuing, or just the synopsis alone made me sure that a book wasn’t going to be for me

  9. I like Heart of Iron and Renegades, but they are also my favorite genre, so I’m not surprised. If you’re not interested, you’re not interested! But I definitely understand adding a book to a TBR list because of the author who wrote it. I’ve done that as well. XD

    I haven’t read Vampire Academy, but I’ve read all the rest. Some I liked, some were okay but have faded from my mind already, so I wouldn’t worry too much if you don’t read some of them. XD

  10. Ughhhh, I hated The Hazel Wood SO MUCH lol. You aren’t missing anything by skipping that one! As far as The Glass Spare goes, “I want to want to read it” makes so much sense to me because I feel the same way about that one lol!
