Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books I will Probably NEVER Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.

Welcome back to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. Today's topic is the top ten books I will probably NEVER read. For those of you who know me, I don't read non fiction all that often. So I could easily have made this list all non-fiction. But I didn't.

1. Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James - I enjoy secular romance. But there is a HUGE difference between a romance and whatever you feel like calling this book. I have absolutely no intention of EVER reading this book, its sequels, or seeing the movie. I can spend my time doing other things.

2. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen - I'm sure that there are some of my readers who are seeing this title and going "What?!" I've seen the movies. I've read some of Austen's books, but this one just never really captured my attention. I like Emma better. 

3. Heartless (and the rest of the series) by Anne Elisabeth Stengl - You'd think that with the way that I love fantasy books, I'd enjoy this series. Well I tried the second one, and it kept putting me to sleep. So this is a no go for me.

4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth - I read the first one and I liked it. But I already know how this one ends. I'm not sure if I'm ready for all of those feelings.

5. Mark of Distinction by Jessica Dotta - I didn't care for the first book, so I have no interest in reading this one. 

6. The Left Behind Prequels of the Rising, The Regime, and the Rapture by Tim LaHaye & Jerry Jenkins - Yeah, I won't be reading these. I had no interest when they came out, and still don't care to. Especially after my rant on Kingdom Come last summer. 

7. The Host by Stephenie Meyer - Yes I've read Twilight. No I didn't love it. The result is that I have no interest in reading this book. 

8. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - I keep having this one recommended to me. It's not something I'm interested in at this time. Maybe someday, but I doubt it.

9. The Life of Pi by Yann Martel - I might see the movie, but I doubt that too. 

10. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden - I saw the movie. It was beautifully done. But I have no inclination to read the book.


  1. I don't have a desire to read the 50 Shades Trilogy at all!!

    Here's my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/05/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-i-will.html

  2. Yeah, I probably won't finish The Host or ever read Stephanie's Twilight books. :)

  3. Fifty Shades of Grey was on my list too! I will read Allegiant, if only so I can say I've read the whole series even though I know how it ends.
