Top Ten Tuesday (#30)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week's topic is a freebie. So I'm going to do Top Ten Books I Will Never Read!

1. Anything else that John Green writes. I've basically read all of his books. I find the way ALL of the characters talk to be obnoxiously unrealistic. I also feel like if you've read one of his books you've read them all. I liked each one of his books a little bit less as I kept going through them. I'm just gonna be done with his books, I think.

2. Spectaccolo by Christine Catlin because duh.

3. The Martian by Andy Weir. Weird thing about me, outer space scares the LIFE out of me! I don't think that I could read this one!

4. The Infernal Devices series or the new series by Cassandra Clare. I read all of The Mortal Instruments series and while I really didn't enjoy anything past the third book, I was INCREDIBLY butthurt about how hard she pushed the characters from the next series in City of Heavenly Fire. If I wanted to know that much about them, I'd read that series. I'm just over the whole Shadowhunter world.

5. Unravel Me or Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. It's been awhile since I ranted about this, but Warner is icky so I refuse to finish the Shatter Me series and I probably won't read anything else she puts out just on principle.

6. Cress or Winter by Marissa Meyer. I don't really have anything against these, I just didn't really love Cinder or Scarlet. I thought they were kind of boring.

7. Grey by E.L. James. I really did not like the Fifty Shades of Grey books. I read some snippets of this book and... just no thank you.

8. Whatever book is coming out next year about Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin. I started off really liking The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but that series really lost me. I quite liked Noah, but I didn't care for those stories toward the end. I think I'll pass on this one.

9. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. I thought that The Diviners would be a totally amazing read. But I found the book to be unnecessarily long and the climax to be a gigantic letdown. I loved the Gemma Doyle books, but I will pass on reading anymore of this.

10. Traveler by Arwen Elys Dayton. I thought that Seeker was just awful. I am kind of curious as to what happens in this book, but 100% not curious enough to put myself through reading that book.

What are some books that YOU will never read and why? I'd love to hear about them!

  1. I'm done with John Green and Cassandra Clare as well, haha. I did like TFiOS and enjoyed a few Clare books, but I can't take any more. I did finish the Shatter Me trilogy, but I wish I hadn't. Ugh, Warner.

    I'll also never read the 50 Shades of Grey series or anything else Stephanie Meyer writes, and I'm officially over Sarah J. Maas' books. (Unpopular opinion, I know.)

    1. I just don't see what everyone else in the world sees about Cassandra Clare. I'm still mad about having to read so much about the new girl in City of Heavenly Fire. SO MAD!

      I probably won't pick up anything else by Stephanie Meyer. I liked The Host, but if all she's going to put out is fan fiction of her own book, I think I will personally pass.

      I'm still riding the Sarah J. Maas wave. I have to know how Throne of Glass ends. I don't even care about who Celaena is with anymore, I just want to know about her. But I could see being over ACOTAR. When I read that one, I just LOVED it! But ever since I finished it I have just been agonizing over, is she gonna make Rhysand a serious love interest? I would have to stop reading that on principle, same as with Shatter Me. But I want to keep reading that one because I loved Feyre and Tamlin together! I'm so torn!! I want to love it, but I CANT LOVE RHYSAND!!!!

    2. Right?! I honestly can't believe I read the entire series, haha. I even watched the first two episodes of the show, and it was SO BAD. XD

      I figure I'll just read the spoilers for the rest of ToG. There should be plenty! I'm not sure what's supposed to even happen in the series now after QoS. In a lot of ways it felt like a series finale to me. Unfortunately I have a feeling Rhysand is going to happen. =/

    3. I haven't watched the show and I definitely don't plan on it! I saw the movie when it was in theaters. I guess I kinda liked the movie, but that was before I read 4-6 in TMI and lost all interest!

      It did kind of feel like a finale, but I think that now that the King is out of the picture, I think that that one dude who was so awful to Kaltain is the main bad guy. The guy overseeing the witches and their wyverns or something. I have a feeling Rhysand is going to happen too. Ahhhhhhhh... I want to keep reading, but not if he's a serious love interest because GROOOOOOSSSSSSS!!!!!!

    4. Yeah, I can't remember his name either. But it still seems more like that could be a side series with a difference MC, maybe.

      I don't think Rhysand will be endgame, but it will still be painful to read about him and Feyre. =/

    5. I hope that's true. I hope that he just keeps his creepy hands to himself while Feyre is in the Night Court.
