Hello everyone ~ Today I decided to talk about all the books I have NO interest in reading. Maybe sometime in the future I might consider these… but for now I really have no interest in them (: If these are some of your favs I mean no offense!! I wasn’t tagged by anyone… I just wanted to do this today ~
This tag was created by Nicole & Her Books over on YouTube! Click here for her original video ~
Let’s goooooo ~~~
1. A popular book EVERYONE loves that you have no interest in reading?
~ Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer
Now, does EVERYONE love this book? Not exactlyyy… but I have seen a ton of people gushing about this book lately. I used to adore Twilight and I just recently re-watched all the movies. However, I really do not have any interest in this one from Edwards POV! It’s super long and I really cannot see myself reading it anytime soon. I just don’t think I need/want an additional narrative set in the Twilight universe. I know I’m probably in the minority but yeahhh just not super interested at the moment ~
2. A classic book (or author) you don’t have an interest in reading?
~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
As an English Literature major who does enjoy a good classic every once in a while actually found this question pretty difficult. I normally am pretty open when it comes to classics and would be willing to read a lot of different options. I ended up going with Little Women just because I have recently seen the movie and really loved it. The book itself is very big and I personally think I am fine just knowing the story through the movie adaptation (*gasp I know!). I might read this at some point in my life but at least for now it’s not on my radar ~~
3. An author whose books you have no interest in reading?
~ Maggie Stiefvater
This one might make a few people sad haha. I have read the Raven Cycle season by her and truly just did not enjoy it at all. I know that is some people’s favorite series of all time. It just was not for me! Because of that, I really do not have any motivation to pick up her other books. The concepts of them do not really appeal to me either. Perhaps in the future… but not right now (:
4. An author you have read a couple of books from & have decided their books are not for you?
~ Christina Lauren
As someone who has recently discovered new adult/adult romance this year, I went through a phase where I thought Christina Lauren was the only romance author out there. However, I have found that through reading about 6 of their books (since they are an author duo) I do not really enjoy them. I give them normally between 2 and 3 stars and I know now that there are romance authors out there that fit my taste a little bit more ~ I have not read their YA book, Autoboyography, so maybe I will give that one a chance at some point.
5. A genre you have no interest in OR a genre you tried to get into & couldn’t?
I absolutely cannot do anything spooky in terms of books, TV shows, movies, etc. I am the biggest wimp that exists when it comes to things like that. I can even get scared just from reading middle grade ghost stories haha. So, safe to say Stephen King is off my radar!
6. A book you have bought but will never read?
~ Save the Date by Morgan Matson
This is sort-of random but I took a look at my shelves and saw this book on there and realized I will probably never read it. I bought it when it came out a few years ago and was really excited about it. However, it just does not sound like something that would interest me anymore. I also have heard not the best things about it. Older YA contemporaries aren’t really my jam anymore ~
7. A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started & have dnf’d?
~ The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
This is a book that I read earlier this year and just could not get into. I have heard some of my friends talk about how amazing this book and series is… but I just did not enjoy it. I have no interest in continuing on with the series and kind-of regret reading this first one. I might just not have been in the mood for YA fantasy when I read it but oh well!
8. A new release you have no interest in reading?
~ The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
This is not a super recent release… but I have not wanted to read this book ever since it came out. Similar with Midnight Sun, I used to be a huge Hunger Games fan and adore the movies. I just personally do not want/need more books in this world. I have also heard some pretty negative things about this books which makes me not want to pick it up more. Maybe if people were really loving it I would give it a shot… but it looks like I’ll be sitting out on this one (:
