Ten Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In 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 is all about books that we no longer want to read. I feel kind of bad making this list. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the author or their efforts in writing the book. It’s just not for me anymore.

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)

Initially I was really excited about this book, but I’ve heard such mixed things and think I need a break from the genre.

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

After reading The One, I totally didn’t feel the need to continue.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

I tried to start this series, but I totally lost interest.

Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1)

I’m working on watching the TV show at the moment (late I know!) and I’ve always had the book series on my radar. I’m not sure I want to commit to it.

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1)

I’ve heard mixed things about this series!

Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark, #1)

I enjoyed the Divergent trilogy, but I’m not that sure I want to read this one!

This Shattered World (Starbound, #2)

I really loved the first book in the duology but I think I’ve left it too long before reading this one, meaning I’m not really that bothered about it.

Jackaby (Jackaby, #1)

I initially really wanted to read this, but reviews have put me off it slightly.

The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die, #2)

I didn’t love the first book, so I’m not compelled to read the next one!

Miss Mayhem (Rebel Belle, #2)

I’m not intending to carry on as I didn’t love Rebel Belle as much as I wanted to!

Do you think I should give any of these books a go? Convince me!

Let me know about the books you’ve decided not to read!

Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten Hyped Books That I’ve Never Read. I hope I don’t offend anyone with my choices!

As ever the book images go to Goodreads!

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo- Stieg Larsson

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

I don’t know what it is about this series, it just doesn’t seem to appeal to me at all. I don’t have any desire whatsoever to read it, even though I know it’s supposed to be amazing!

A Game Of Thrones- George R. R Martin

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

I’m just stepping into the world of fantasy and I have to admit, the size of this book and the length of this series puts me off!

Red Rising- Pierce Brown

Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1)

Hmm… I keep seeing this series around and I’m not sure that I want to read it!

The Heir- Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

I have such trouble with this one. The cover is BEAUTIFUL and I enjoyed the series enough, but I just feel like it’s being dragged out a little? Feel free to convince me otherwise…

City of Bones- Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

My good friend really enjoys Cassandra Clare’s writing. I’m just not sure I want to commit myself to another series…

Lord of The Rings- J.R.R Tolkien

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

Lord Of The Rings is another epic read which I don’t think I’ll get around to. I have no interest in it. I’ll go hide now…

Dracula- Bram Stoker


I know the story, I’m just not compelled to read the story.

It- Stephen King


My sister picked this one for me. She really doesn’t think I’ll EVER read this book. I think she’s right…

The Poisonwood Bible- Barbara Kingsolver

The Poisonwood Bible

I’ve heard good things about this book. I may read it in the future, it’s just not one that stands out to me right now.

The Cuckoo’s Calling- Robert Galbraith

The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike, #1)

I have had this book for so long waiting to be read, but again… not compelled to read it!

Have I mentioned any of your favourites? Feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten posts and I’ll stop by! 🙂
