Top Ten Tuesday is created by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and it’s purpose is that you make a top 10 list on Tuesday out of the topics she provides. However, you don’t have to stick exactly to 10, you may also put more or less books/things on the lists. Moreover, you are allowed to give an “unique” spin to the topic whenever that works better for you. Well, let’s move on to this week’s list!
Today’s actual prompt is: Characters I’d Like To Switch Places With, but I did something similar a while back with another meme. Therefore, I took a very old prompt and will go ahead with it. So, there are some books out there that I will never read in my life, sorry not sorry.
The Hunger games by Suzanne Collins
Actually I started the first book last year, but I didn’t make it past the 50% mark. Therefore I won’t continue that book and will never read the rest.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I have a feeling that this is going to give me a The Hunger Games vibe and that I won’t like it at all. Therefore I removed it from my TBR.
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey
The synopsis just doesn’t suck me into this story, so no.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Again, the synopsis is not drawing any of my attention, so I won’t ever pick up this series.
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I believe that the series is called this, but I am not sure as I only know the Dutch translation. However, I DNF’ed Riders by the same author, so I doubt that I will like these books.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Can we just gasp about the length of ALL books? They are so huge and I am afraid that they might get boring and repetitive towards the end.
Any book by Paulo Coelho
I tried The Alchemist, but I kept falling asleep because it is such a boring book. Therefore I am very hesitant to try other books by Coelho.
Lord Of The Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
These books are so big and I have never had any interest in the movies. This also applies to The Hobbit.
Literally any classic
Well, this might be an unpopular opinion, but I will never read the common classics. They don’t sound appealing to me and the language is complicated. It is such a strugle to get through them. I’m not talking about the English ones, but also the Dutch translations are not very up to date. Therefore, the language is old and barely used anymore. No, no classics for me.
Fifty Shades Of Grey by E. J. James
Fifty Shades Of Grey, you love it or you hate it. However, I will never read them since these books are erotica and I don’t like that genre.
So far, some of the books I will never read. Which books will you never read?
