Okay so this week’s top ten Tuesday list is top ten books I will probably never read. This one is a hard one for me, because I don’t really like closing myself off to possibilities of new books, I like to apply a never say never policy to books, but like most people, there are books that I won’t touch with a ten foot pole. I will try to get this to ten, but it might come out as less!
1. Fifty Shades of Grey-EL James-I am sorry but erotica is just not my thing, it makes me feel uncomfortable and to be honest, from what I’ve heard about this book, it sounds like the writing is rubbish and that it portrays an abusive relationship, so I have no inclination to read that.
2. Twilight-Stephanie Meyer-I’m so over the whole vampire thing, I’m not interested in it, & it sounds like Bella is just a whimp, and there seems to be far too much romance in it for my liking, so I honestly don’t think I will ever read it.
3. The Mortal Instruments Series-Cassandra Clare-Again, lots of vampires and werewolves, and that really isn’t my thing, plus from what I’ve read about it, it sounds like romance is a primary focus in this book, and that is a big no-no for me, if romance is more than just a side plot, then I don’t want to read about it.
4. Anything else by John Green-this is more the author than any particular book, sorry to TFIOS fans, but I hated that book and after reading that I just don’t feel the inclination to read any more of his books.
5. The Kane Chronicles and Gods of Asgaard series by Rick Riordan-I love the Percy Jackson series, but I’m not interested in Norse or Egyptian mythology, and I love Percy Jackson so much that I don’t want to ruin it by reading these books and potentially not liking them. Besides I will always be missing Percy!
6. The Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver-I usually love dystopian novels but the entire concept of these books are based around love, so romance is clearly central to the plot, and as I’ve said, I don’t mind romance as a side to the plot, but I hate it when romance is central.
7. The Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie-This is much the same thing as The Delirium Trilogy, the whole plot is based around romance, and I just don’t like that, so I am unlikely to read it.
8. The Selection series by Kiera Cass-I just don’t like the sound of the plot for this one, lots of girls fawning over one hot guy? Sounds like my version of a nightmare. It sounds very fluffy with no real grit to the story, and okay, I might like a fluffy teen read once in a while, but this one just doesn’t sound like it’s for me.
9. The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling-My problem here is much the same as with Rick Riordan, I love Harry Potter so much that I don’t think I could read anything else by her, in case it ruins Harry Potter for me. I might be willing to consider reading her detective novels, but this just doesn’t sound like my sort of book.
10. Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult-I love Jodi Picoult as an author, but this book is based a lot around religion, and that just doesn’t appeal to me. I’m not really religious myself, and so I wouldn’t like reading a book based around it (just based on my own personal beliefs) as I would find the miracle stuff really unbelievable.
I did it! I actually got ten! Are any of mine on your list? Do you think I’m wrong about any of these? Tell me what you’re thinking, I love your comments! Next week’s Top Ten Tuesday is ten authors I really want to meet, and I’m really excited for that, but tomorrow I will post another Wishlist Wednesday, so look out for that.
