This tag was originally posted on Ariel Bissett’s Youtube channel. I also saw it a few weeks ago on Lia’s blog Lost in a Story. The tag is all about the books that I don’t think I’ll ever read. It’s short and simple so let’s do this…
1. A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?
At one point in time this series seemed to be all everyone would speak about. I struggled to get through Truthwitch. I was confusing, with an irritating main character and tough to get through. I picked it up and put it down tons of times. Windwitch is based around a character I did enjoy from Truthwitch but I just don’t have the patience or time to struggle through it again.
2. A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?
I’ve completely given up on the Throne of Glass series. I just can’t read the books anymore. The characters irritate me, the storylines make me angry and I feel like the quality decreased as time went on. To be honest, I haven’t enjoyed the series since the second book. There just isn’t enough time in the world to try to stick with a series that you don’t enjoy.
3. A classic that you’re just not interested in?
I adore Jane Eyre and Jane Austen’s novels, but the classic I have no interest in reading is Catch-22. The synopsis doesn’t excite me at all. I read it, shrugged and felt no pull to pick it up. Plus, there are tons of reviews on Goodreads that say they found it slow, difficult to read and confusing. So…I’m going to pass on this book!
4. Any genres you never read?
I never read horror. I’m a huge baby and gore/scary things just don’t do it for me. I read to escape but not be scared to death.
5. A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?
My co-blogger Gina really enjoyed this book but I have no interest in it. I received in a monthly book box, flipped through it and never picked it up again. I’ll probably just donate it to my classroom library or give it to a friend.
