It's time for another Top Ten Tuesday! This week's topic is actually quite interesting, because I never really think about books that I know I won't read. And now I have to choose Top Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read. I own some of the books on this list (which I will mention later) but I guess I just lost interest in them—so I'm probably going to give them out to friends or do a clearance sale on this blog. Some I don't own but I know I will probably never read them because of what it's about or because of other people's opinion. Alright, so here are the books in no particular order :)
Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James
This is the first book that came to mind when I saw this week's topic. I know there's a lot of hype surrounding it and there are people out there who loved it (although I'm sure there are also people who feel exactly the opposite). But I just cannot see myself reading this kind of book, not even in 5 or 10 years later I think. I have plenty more books that I still need to read (that I know I'll love).
Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi
This series was in my TBR list a while ago and I already have the e-books ready to be read. And several months ago when my friend asked me for a good series recommendation, I suggested this series—because it had really good ratings on Goodreads and the reviews are mostly positive. She read the whole series within a week, and then she ranted about how disappointing the ending was for her. So I allowed my friend to spoil everything about the series and what made her disappointed. After that long chat, I have lost my desire to read this series (despite the amazing ratings). I already know how it's going to end anyway.
Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I watched the Mortal Instruments movie adaptation before I started reading the series, and it definitely made me feel discouraged—because the movie was really really not good. I might change my mind someday, because a lot of my friends recommended it to me and assured me that the books are better; but I will probably have to wait until my memory about the movie adaptation finally fades.
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
This series has been really popular these days since it was adapted into a TV series. I watched the first season, and to be honest, it's not really my cup of tea. I'm not a huge fan of historical romance, so I might not read this series. Ever. But I might continue on with the TV series because my Mom liked it.
Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
I'm kind of ashamed to say that I actually own the whole series. But I have unhauled it, even though I'm still not sure whether I would give it away to a friend or sell it in a clearance sale. I bought this series a really long time ago, probably when vampire stories are in trend. However I kind of lost interest in this series and I don't think I'll be reading vampire books any time soon.
Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
Again, I have most of the books in the series but never got around to reading it. I guess I was intrigued because it was adapted into a TV series that was quite popular a few years ago. For the same reason as the previous one, I'm not interested in reading any vampire stories for now. So I might also put this series up for sale soon.
Fallen series by Lauren Kate
I was intrigued by this series because of the hype and the reviews on this series are pretty good. And I got the first two books in the series (I forgot when exactly), but when I unhauled some books, I decided to put this book aside as well. I rarely read a paranormal romance before (if not never), and I guess that's why I will probably never read this book. I'm going to give my copy away to my friend who's interested in reading them.
The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown
There was a time when this book was super popular and everybody was reading this book. But all the controversies caused by the book made me lost interest in it. Despite the fact that a lot of people loves Dan Brown's writing, I think I won't be reading this book forever.
Noggin by John Corey Whaley
I was quite intrigued by the quirky premise of this book; but last year I read John Corey Whaley's other book called Where Things Come Back—and I was quite disappointed by it. Thankfully I still haven't bought a copy of this book yet. And now I have officially removed it from my TBR list.
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
The last one is quite random because I've only heard about this book from BookTube. And judging from what they said about the book (especially how weird it is), I felt like it's totally not something that I would read. But I really liked that green color on the cover, though.
Those are the tens books I will probably never read; even though I might have a lot more than ten because who has the time to read all the books in this world? Anyways, feel free to share what books you will probably never read or links to your own Top Ten Tuesday post in the comments below :) I always enjoyed looking at other people's list because I'm nosy like that ;) Alright, see you in the next topic!
