Hey loves! Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading. Honestly… I don’t really have a TBR? I’m a mood reader, so I never do. There are just some books I want to read at some point, no distinct list. So there’s no books on the nonexistant list that I want to read but am avoiding reading?
So instead I decided to go Hyped Books I Probably Won’t Read, which is similar enough I guess because it goes with the theme of books I’m avoiding reading. Buckle in for some unpopular opinions!
1. The Mortal Instruments
I just never heard of these books until a couple years ago, and there are so many I don’t even know where to start, and I feel like the hype train past long ago and it’s just an old book series I never read. I’m not particularly interested so eh.
2. Eleanor & Park
Since I love Fangirl so much I thought I wanted to read this book, especially with the new adaptation coming out, but since I’ve seen the racist parts, I figure I’ll pass.
3. Thirteen Reasons Why
I read some reviews that said this glorifies suicide… needless to say, I don’t feel that’s something I need to read.
4. Illuminae Series
I read the first book, Illuminae, and while it was okay, I definitely didn’t really like the weird unique quirky style, and didn’t like it enough to want to continue.
5. Lola And The Boy Next Door
In other words, the rest of the Anna and the French Kiss series because I hated that book.
6. Stalking Jack The Ripper
I actually checked this out from the library and read the first few pages… and got grossed out haha it’s too graphic for my wimpy self.
7. Ninth House
Everybody in the universe is talking about this book! I’m not interested although I love Bardugo’s works because it’s apparently very very adult, definitely not YA. Unlike most people here, I’m actually a teenager and feel uncomfortable reading some adult; I read YA because it’s targeted to me!
8. Throne Of Glass
I’m not completely against this one!! I’m not! It’s just… I probably won’t read it because I’m not ready for that type of commitment. With seven books, some of the later ones being humongous 700+ page suckers, I’m just… that would take a long time to read and there are a lot of other books I could be reading. I read the ACOTAR series and although I enjoyed it, I didn’t absolutely love it and I’m not obsessed with SJM or anything so I don’t love her enough to want to buckle in for this type of commitment.
9. Wires & Nerve
This isn’t I don’t think the most popular of books but it’s big for me because Marissa Meyer is my favorite author!! I just… am not interested in reading graphic novels.
10. Red Queen Books
These were popular a million years ago but I read Red Queen and really disliked it so I see no point in finishing the series off.
What are some hyped books you’re not interested in reading? What are some books on your TBR you’re avoiding reading? I’d love to chat in the comments below ❤
