Hello guys !
Yes, it is time for another list because I really have fun writing these posts. Today, it is all about the books that I don’t think I’ll ever read. But even so, some of them I might change my mind about, never say never, right ?
The series are going to count as one book because otherwise it’s not going to take long to fill the list haha!
P.s: The covers are direct links to the Goodreads pages. (Of the first book in case of a series)
1- MARA DYER – MICHELLE HODKIN
Everyone has been talking about how the last book in this trilogy is a big drop from the books before so I don’t want to go through the trouble of reading it and maybe even loving it to be disappointed at the end.
2- THE MAZE RUNNER – JAMES DASHNER
Just because I watched the movies and they were okay, I’ll continue on with the next one but it just didn’t give me that urge to run for the books.
3- RED QUEEN – VICTORIA AVEYARD
I know, I know that I’ve put it in my list of 16 series I want to start in 2016 but as the time went on, I haven’t heard great reviews about it and my excitement died down, but I might change my mind though, nothing is set in stone.
4- SHATTER ME – TAHEREH MAFI
Okay, okay, hear me out ! I tried starting this one twice but I just couldn’t get into it. I did so when I was in a reading slump though, so that could be the problem because I hear it’s great and my little sister started it and she loved it which means I might give it another try.
5- PRECIOUS STONE – KERSTIN GIER
The exact same thing that happened with The Maze Runner happened here, so yeah, that’s that.
6- THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER – STEPHEN CHBOSKY
Don’t kill me, please? Because I don’t have a real reason for this one, I am just not feeling it (Oups). I might end up reading it though.
7- A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE – GEORGE R. R. MARTIN
I’m a BIG fan of the Tv-show and I know it’s not the same thing but still. Those are chunky books for heaven’s sake and the author stopped writing the series before finishing it (I think? Correct me if I’m wrong!) so yeah, not putting myself through that pain.
Update : The author hasn’t stopped, he’s just really slow at releasing the books. (Big thanks to The Clockwork Millennial for the clarification)
8- SEVEN WAYS WE LIE – RILEY REDGATE
It doesn’t sound like something I’d enjoy, that’s all there is to it sadly.
9- THE GRISHA – LEIGH BARDUGO
Another I have no real reason for because I’ve heard only great things about it. I’m a horrible person I know, but the blurb just didn’t attract me. This is another one I might reconsider in the future.
10- ALL JANE AUSTEN BOOKS
I tried reading Pride and Prejudice a while back but the writing style just didn’t do it for me, it was too heavy for my taste and not because it’s a classic, there are some classics that I really love.
11- THE LORD OF THE RINGS – J. R. R. TOLKIEN
You have the right to throw rocks at me, I can take it. This is just one of those things that I feel is never going to happen. I haven’t watched the movies either but I promised a friend to marathon them with her as they are her favorite movies in the world. We’ll see how that goes.
12- THE HOBBIT – J. R. R. TOLKIEN
It just doesn’t seem right to read this one without The Lord of the Rings.
13- THE HOST – STEPHENIE MEYER
Watched the movie. Loved it. But as I went to read the book, it came to my attention that the author gave up on the series (Again, correct me if I’m wrong) so I’m doing just that.
14- THE DIVINERS – LIBBA BRAY
Even though I heard amazing things about this series, the premise of it doesn’t pull me in so I’m not reading it. For now that is. A decision I’m sure I’m going to revisit in the future.
Side note : What the hell were they thinking with that cover change? The old one was pure gorgeousness.
15- IF I STAY – GAYLE FORMAN
The things I heard about this duology aren’t that good, so why waste time and money on it when I could be reading something I’m more likely to enjoy? SO MANY BOOKS OUT THERE.
16- FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – E. L. JAMES
Because NO. Okay? Okay.
That’s it until next time.
If you think I should reconsider any of these PLEASE let me know.
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
