Top Ten Tuesday is a Weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week a topic is given and we have to reply with ten answers.
This Week’s Question: Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read
Ooh, now this is a tough one. I want to start off by saying that I, in no way mean think these books are necessarily bad. They just aren’t really to my taste anymore and i am probably not going to read them in the near future (it may change in the far future). If any of these are your favourite books then i am sorry and if you think that a book that’s on here deserves to be off then please discuss your reasons in the comments below. I would love to get into some bookish debates over this.
10. Matched by Ally Condie
I tried it and just couldn’t make myself continue. I think i’ve read too many of this type of dystopian and i just couldn’t get into the characters at that moment in time. I’ve heard lots of people that did like this book and series though so maybe it’s just me 🙂
9. The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett
I bought this book years ago and still haven’t gotten around to reading it. Thats pretty much showing me that it’s not going to happen.
8. Rage Against the Dying by Becky Masterman
This is a book i bought fairly recently, however currently i’m just not as into it as i was when i bought it. At first it seemed really interesting but the more i read the blurb the less interested I’m becoming. We’ll see.
7. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
This is another book that i’ve had for years and have just never gotten around to reading. I’m not sure why and so many people have recommended this, however i’m just not feeling it.
6. Alone: The Girl in the Box by Robert J. Crane
This was a free ebook i bought when i was going on a free ebook buying spree. That pretty much explains it.
5. Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce
This sounds interesting, however i currently want more fantasy with my faeries and i feel like this book just isn’t going to give me what i’m after.
4. Ignite by Kaitlyn Davis
Another free ebook and i’m kind of out of the whole vampire phase now, it’s a shame. A few years ago i would have probably loved this!
3. Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
This book i was really sad about. I really wanted to love this book and series and had heard so many great things. Unfortunately i read the first few pages and had to stop. Her writing style is just not for me. It’s a shame because i really like the plot and premise of all her books, but i just can’t read them. Maybe i’ll try again in a few years and my tastes will have matured.
2. The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
I won this book free on Goodreads and was extremely happy, however i’m not really into these kind of books at the moment. Maybe sometime in the future but definitely not right now.
1. Switched by Amanda Hocking
I really liked the look of this book when i received it, however since then i’ve stopped myself from reading it on several occasions, i’m guessing that i’m not as keen on these type of books anymore? Not really sure.
What are your top ten this week?
Thanks for reading,
