Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is book’s that I’m no longer interested in reading. When books are first released, there is always a lot of hype. I immediately want to add the book to my TBR, even if it doesn’t sound like something I will enjoy. After time goes on, some of this books slowly fade from my memory. Here are some books that I initially wanted to read, but no longer am interested in reading:
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
I wasn’t really a fan of Red Queen, but planned on giving Glass Sword a chance since Red Queen was so hyped upon its release. However, I finally decided that it wasn’t something I enjoyed and I didn’t want to spend time reading a book that I knew I had no interest in reading. I can’t see myself picking up this book in the future.
- The Rose and the Dagger by Reneé Ahdieh
I thought the first book in this duology was okay. Since it was only two books, I thought I could push through and read the second one. However, I was never invested in the series. Even though I didn’t necessarily dislike the first book, I’m not too interested in seeing how this story ends and can’t see myself picking up the second book.
- One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus
I actually started to read this book, but I just couldn’t get into it. I found myself just reading to find out whatever plot twist was at the end. Eventually, I just looked up the ending to the story. Since I wasn’t too interested after reading the beginning of this book, it didn’t really disappoint me to spoil the end.
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
I wanted to read this book before the movie came out since I loved The Sun is Also a Star. I already saw a spoiler for the ending, so I think that;s why I never got around to reading it. I recently watched the movie and although I enjoyed it, I don’t think I would pick up the book in the future.
- Surviving High School by Lele Pons and Melissa de la Cruz
This is another book I tried reading, but couldn’t get through. I love reading books by online personalities, but this one was tough for me to read. I can’t see myself reaching for this book again.
I was interested in Dumplin’ after all the hype surrounding its release. I read the beginning, but slowly lost interest in the book. It’s still a story I’m interested in and I like the cast selected for the movie, so hopefully my experience with the movie is better than my experience with the book.
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This is another book I started, but lost interest in. This book has a ton of hype, but for some reason, I just couldn’t get into it. This is another one where maybe I’ll be more interested in the move than the book.
- Girl Online On Tour by Zoe Sugg
I really didn’t enjoy Girl Online, but like with Surviving High School, I like reading books by online personalities. However, it’s been awhile since I read the first one and I’m not particularly interested in how this story turns out.
- The List by Siobhan Vivian
I remember The List being popular upon its release. It’s been on my Goodreads TBR for awhile, but I can’t see myself reading it especially since many books covering the same topic, but with better reviews, have been released recently.
- Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff that Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams
I bought this book probably six years ago. I started it, but never finished. Now that I’m much older, I think this story could be cute, but a little too young for me. As a result, I’m not really interested in reading it anymore.
