Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'll Probably Never Read

Books I'll Probably Never Read

This is my first post on this blog, and I always think first posts are a little bit awkward. So I figured that I'll jump right into what I actually want to blog about, and skip the awkward stage. (Hopefully) 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and they are actually the reason I started this blog. I've always wanted to blog about books, I've just never done it. And now I have something to write about every Tuesday at least. 
So without further ado, here is 10 books i'll probably never read. In no particular order. 

Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James - I have seen this book on several people's list, and I agree. This book is not something that interests me, and I've already read so much about it on tumblr and other sites that I know that I'll just hate it. For several reasons. If I ever where to read it, it would simply be so that I could have even more reasons to hate it. 

The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare - Don't hate me. I've never read any of the books, and I don't know a whole lot about the plot. The series just doesn't interest me, there are so many other books I'd rather read. 

The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead - Again, don't hate me. I know many people love this series, and I'm glad you do. I'm just tired of vampires. I've read the entire Twilight series, and that's enough vampires for me.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - Or any other books in the series. Honestly, I don't really know what the series is about, and I haven't seen the movie based on the first book either. And I have no plans of doing so. It's simply because I'm a YA or romance girl, so this doesn't interest me.

Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder - This is not for a lack of trying though. My school set up a production of the musical based on this book, and I figured "Hey, I should read it so I really understand what's going on." Since the story is kind of confusing. So I picked it up, and I tried. I tried so hard to read it and to like it. My problem with this book is that the story is interrupted by philosophy lessons all the time, and I couldn't keep up. I put it down, and don't plan on picking it up again. Still, the musical was great though, and a lot more entertaining. 

It by Stephen King - Again, this is not for a lack of trying. I picked it up a couple of years ago, and started to read it. I have a love/hate relationship with King's writing. It's amazing, but sometimes a little bit too scary for me. This is what happened with this book. I started, got really into the story and started having nightmares. So I had to put it down. The fact that it's about a killer clown doesn't really make it any better either, so I don't think I'll try this book again.

The Holy Bible - This is a sad one for me, because I would love to read it and recently bought my own copy of it. I just think it's too big, too intimidating that I'll actually ever start reading it. 

The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling - This one is also a sad one. I am a total Harry Potter nerd, and I adore Rowling's writing. However, I am only 18 and I think this book is a little too "adult" for me. Hopefully I'll read it when I'm older, maybe 10-15 years from now, but right now it's just not something that I think I'll really enjoy.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl - or the rest of the series. I read the first one, and it was okay. But it didn't really make me want to read the other three books in the series. I own all for books, so even though I think it's unlikely, I hope I'll finish the series some time. 

Evermore by Alyson Nöel - I have had this book on my self for as long as I can remember, and I have simply just lost interest in it. I'm sure it's a great book, and maybe I would love it, but the excitement is gone and now it's just taking up space at my shelf.

So these are the ten books I'll probably never read, and I actually had a surprisingly hard time thinking of all of these. I tend to just remember the books I have read or the books I actually want to read.


  1. Fifty Shades is a popular pick this week, it made my list as well. I quite enjoyed the VA series.

    Sharon – Obsession with Books

    1. Yeah, it seems like people either want to read or stay completely away from Fifty Shades. I'm glad you enjoyed VA! I guess I would enjoy it as well, but as of right now I want something other than vampires. But hey, maybe one day, right?
