Top Ten Books I’m On The Fence About Reading

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s list are the books that we’re on the fence about reading. I have a few of these! Ha.

As ever, book images go to Goodreads!

The Jewel (The Lone City, #1)

I used to really want to read this book but I’ve heard a few things that have put me off.

Water for Elephants

I have wanted to read this book for a long time! I think I’m nervous I won’t like it.

Easy (Contours of the Heart, #1)

I’m not a massive fan of this genre, but I’ve heard good things. I’m torn!

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)

I have yet to read this series. I’m not sure whether it would be for me or not.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)

Pretty sure that this book has made numerous appearance on my blog, but I STILL haven’t made time for it.

Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)

Hm. I used to really be into this sort of read, but I’m not anymore.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

I know this series is massively popular but I’m not sure it’s for me.

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

I’ve heard very mixed things about this book so I’m really on the fence about reading it.

Into the Dim (Into the Dim, #1)

I was originally really excited about reading this book, but I’m not so sure about it now.

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)

I’m not sure I want to continue the Throne Of Glass series. I started this book but felt pretty ‘meh’ about it.

What do you think about my selection? Are there any of your favourites that you want to root for? Let me know!

Ten Books I’ll Probably Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten books I’ll probably never read. I dislike doing lists like this because I hate to mention books I won’t read, but I do have my reasons and I’m always open to persuasion if I mention one of your favourites…

Book images go to Goodreads!

Game of Thrones- George R.R Martin

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

Don’t hurt me! I just have no desire to read this book at all. It’s such a commitment and I’m not sure it’s my sort of thing anyway.

Lord Of The Rings- J.R.R Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

Eek! I’m sorry. It’s just not my sort of thing at all.

War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace

You might be sensing a theme here. Long, epic reads like this aren’t really my sort of thing. I feel like I’d slog my way through it and not enjoy it. Despite it being a classic that I really should try.

Anna Karenina- Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina is a book that I have went to read so many times. I think I need to face up to the fact that I’m never gonna read it.

Moby Dick- Herman Melville

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

Moby Dick is another book that I think I should read as a book lover, I just don’t think I will… too many other books to enjoy!

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo- Stieg Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

I don’t know why, but I’ve never felt compelled to read this trilogy. I’ve heard good things, but it just doesn’t appeal!

Beautiful Disaster- Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

This is one of those books that mixed reviews have been putting me off reading this book. It’s strange, as usually I like to give a book a try, but something makes me uncomfortable about it. Please tell me if I’m wrong. As I said, I’m open to being persuaded otherwise…

Fallen- Lauren Kate

Fallen (Fallen, #1)

Fallen has a gorgeous cover, but again- mixed reviews. I just don’t see myself reading it.

Hush, Hush- Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)

Much like Fallen, I’m pretty ‘meh’ about this book. I’m not inspired to read it.

The Maze Runner- James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)

My reason for not picking up The Maze Runner is that I’ve heard the series isn’t as good as the first book. I always feel compelled to finish series (even though I don’t always) I’m just not sure I have time to start a series that I won’t invest in.

Do you want to convince me otherwise? Please feel free to leave your honest opinion. I can be persuaded otherwise! 😉 Please leave a link to your posts too and I shall stop by!
