Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post asks us to list ten books that we used to want to read, but now aren’t so sure about. I loved the way they put it: To Read or Not to Read? I’ve limited my list to books I actually own that are now mocking me from the depths of my TBR pile(s). So I really have no excuse for not reading them except that, well … I just haven’t. In some cases it’s because I’ve heard not-so-nice things, in others it’s just that my interests have changed. I’m sure there are actually more than ten books that could go on this list, but these are the ones I decided to share this week.
I’ve just heard so many bad things about this series that it’s really turned me off. Not sure if I’ll read this one or not.
This book is SO LONG. It’s sitting on my shelf, MOCKING ME, and I just … can’t. I really kind of want to? But I know it would take me absolutely forever to get through it, and I don’t know if I want to read it THAT badly.
I’ve heard good things about this series, but what’s turning me off a bit is that it’s … a series. And I’ve just got SO many of those that I’m trying to follow right now.
I actually tried to read this one and just could NOT get into it. This is one that I’m actually planning on trying again, though.
There was so much uproar when Clockwork Princess was released that I couldn’t help but get swayed a bit in my desire to read this series. I might still give it a try, but it’s not at the top of my list.
I just don’t think I’m really in the mood to read about a rather arrogant bad boy. Plus, the longer this book is out, the more lackluster reviews have appeared. I’m just really torn about it, and don’t know if I’ll ever read it or not.
This is another one I’ll probably eventually read, mostly because I cannot resist the lure of a mythology retelling.
I bought this one because various folk kept recommending it. And yet, now that I have it, I’m not sure why I did, because it doesn’t even sound like something I’d usually be interested in.
Again, I’m torn on this one because it’s the start of another flipping series. And I just … I’m so kind of done with those, you know?
Personally speaking, I just really don’t think The Mortal Instruments series needed to be continued. I kind of liked the ending just as it was, you know?
So those are the ten books I picked this week! What made your list? Please link me!
