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 Finished Series That I Have YET To Finish

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are our Top Ten finished series that we have yet to finish. I have a few of these… but I must admit that I’m getting much better at catching up with series, and a lot of the series on my TBR at the moment are unfinished!

In no particular order (book images go to Goodreads):

The Cahill Witch Chronicles

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles, #1)

I only have one more book left in this trilogy and I’m looking foward to finishing it ASAP. I’m very much enjoying it, much more than I had anticipated!

Lynburn Legacy

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)

This is another series which I only have one left to read! I love Kami, the main protagonist in this series!

The Giver

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

I’ve read The Giver and Gathering Blue. I’m intrigued to read more of the books!

Anna

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

Yet another book where there’s only one pending for me! I look forward to reading the next book.

Something Strange and Deadly

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)

I have just got the final book to go. I don’t want to complete this series as I love it so much! Totally holding out on reading the final book.

Awaken

Awaken (Awaken, #1)

I’m not sure that I’ll love the next book as I thought this book was just okay, but I’m willing enough to give it a try!

4 finished series that I want to start

Fire and Thorns

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

I’m really looking forward to reading this book. It’s been on my radar for a while now.

If I Stay

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)

I have had this book for ages, but the hype surrounding Gayle Forman worries me.

Goddess Test

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)

This book doesn’t have the best reviews but I’m intrigued!

The Syrena Legacy

Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy, #1)I haven’t read many books like this. I’ve been put off by the reviews, but I think it’s time to form my own opinion!

What finished series are you yet to complete? Feel free to leave a link to your posts and I’ll stop by!

Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure If I Want To Read

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read (books you may have bought but aren’t sure if you are into it anymore, books you wanted to read but heard mixed things about, hyped books you aren’t sure about — basically any book that has you going, “TO READ OR NOT TO READ?”)

I’ve gone for hyped books that I’m yet to read and I’m unsure whether to read…

So here are mine in no particular order! (Click on the book cover for the Goodreads page!)

Water For ElephantsSara Gruen

43641

I’ve heard so much about this book that I feel like I’ve overhyped it! I feel like it’s a book that I should like, but I’m not sure I would.

City of BonesCassandra Clare

256683

Oh the struggle I have with this! I know that I should read it because everyone loves it so much, but if I’m honest, I’m not sure it’s my sort of thing and I’m not sure I want to commit to another long series. Hmm. Is it worth it?

ShiverMaggie Stiefvater

6068551

Maggie Stiefvater is an author I’ve wanted to check out for ages, but again I’m not sure I want to commit to a series. I have a problem of wanting to see a series through and if I don’t like it then I’ll be annoyed! I don’t know if I’m missing out. Argh, the struggles of a bookworm.

IncarnateJodi Meadows

8573642

Are you starting to see a theme here? There are so many series on my radar that I’m far too nervous to start. One, in case it’s rubbish and two, in case I’m so sucked in I have to find time to marathon them!

Anna Dressed In Blood- Kendare Blake

9378297

This book sounds a bit spooky, and I’m not the biggest fan of spooky. But is it worth it?

The Girl of Fire and ThornsRae Carson

10429092

I am so intrigued by this book, but I’m not the biggest fantasy reader. Does that matter? I don’t know.

Born Wicked- Jessica Spotswood

11715276

I’m intrigued. Pure and simple.

The Immortal Rules Julie Kagawa

15803761

This is where I admit that I haven’t read any Julie Kagawa before. I’m intrigued by this book but I’m a bit over vampires. I’m wondering whether this book stands out in the genre.

EasyTammara Webber

16056408

I’m not a big fan of the New Adult genre, but I hear that this book is very good?

Half-BloodJennifer L.Armentrout

9680718

Again, this is a series problem. Is it worth investing in?

As you can tell, most of the books I’ve featured on here are series and I’m unsure whether to invest time in them! What do you think? Are any of your favourites here? What would you recommend? Please let me know and feel free to leave your links to your posts!
