This week TTT is kind of a freebie because you get to go back and pick any topic that you like. I decided to go with the top ten books I'll never read.
Most of them are very popular in the book blogging community. Some of them, I said I would read eventually. But the truth is, they simply don't sound that amazing to me, and why bother reading books because they're popular if I could be reading something that really interests me? There are too many books that I want to read to waste time reading books others want me to read.
Here are the top ten books I'll probably never read.
The Wrath and the Dawn, by Renée Ahdieh
I am positive this books is gold; everyone keeps telling me it is! I'm simply not that into retellings.
The Girl from Everywhere, by Heidi Heilig
Again, another book that received a lot of praise! Sadly, I'm not drawn to it. (though the cover is gorgeous!)
The 5th Wave, by Rick Yancey
I read a lot of dystopian series back to back and I sorta did an overdose on them. Plus, with the movie out, I don't have the motivation to read this story since I could just watch it.
Cinder, by Marissa Meyer
Do you know how many times I picked up this book at the bookstore and put it back on the shelf? A fucking lot, that's how much! As much as I want to be in the fandom for Cinder, I'm not interested!
Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon
The hype surrounding this book was unreal because I didn't get it. Before it came out, people couldn't wait to read it. Now that's it out, people have read it and loved it. Me? I don't feel like this book is special, I don't find it overly interesting...
Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
I tried with Rainbow Rowell. I really did. But as I said in my review of Carry On, I came, I saw, I conquered, and I'm not coming back.
Illuminae, by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The concept is real cool, I'll give it that. But it's not my type. This is an honest to god "it's not you, it's me" situation.
Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children
This book is suppose to be creepy, but it doesn't sound like it. In fact, the plot doesn't seem that exciting. And I know I'm the minority here because lots of people loved this book and they're making a movie about it. Well...
Truthwitch, by Susan Dennard
I used to love fantasy books. In fact, that's the ONLY thing I used to read. Now? I'm really picky about which fantasy book I'll pick up because the plot are often very similar. Plus, despite all the hype surrounding this book, it didn't get excellent reviews.
That's a wrap for today! Take care cupcakes!
