Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want to Read
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I have read two books by Rowell and I did not really enjoy either of them. One was a DNF and the other was a three star rating. I was excited to read this book, I had heard a lot of great things about it but after reading Fangirl, I am nervous to read this one. I think Rowell just might not be the author for me.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I am not a huge fan of retellings, I haven’t yet read one I like but then again I have only read a couple. I do have a few more to read to see if this is a genre I like or not. With this book though, it’s really hyped up in the book community, and I can’t help but be leery of it. I have not ruled this one out but I am not in a rush to read it.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
On one hand I want to finish this series and put it to rest. On the other hand, I was spoiled for the end of the book and I just can’t bring myself to read it. I loved Divergent, but I was meh about Insurgent and with the spoiler in this one. EH. Maybe. One day.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I have started this one and I am about 20% into it but I am having a hard time continuing on in it. I am not liking any of the characters and things are going really slow. I plan to finish it but it’s not a priority for me.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I DNF’d Anna and the French Kiss, I did not like either character and that has me leery to read either of the other books in the series.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner
This is one I really would like to read, but it’s science fiction and that’s a genre I have had a lot of problems with in the past. I am still up in the air on whether or not I want to give it a shot. I likely will, we’ll just have to see how it goes.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
I received an ARC of this one and attempted it shortly after I received it but wasn’t able to make it past the first few chapters. I want to give it another shot, sadly it suffers from being in a genre I am not that fond of.
Cold Days by Jim Butcher
This one scares me a bit. The series is getting up there in books and I have not had a good record with series with a lot of books. I am so afraid this one is going to keep going long past the time when it should have ended and the books will start to suck, and I will no longer like the series.
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
I guess I am suffering from the sequel syndrome with this one as well. I loved Graceling and Fire, Fire was my favorite, but I haven’t really had an inclination to read this book.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I have heard good and bad things about this series but nothing has made me go ‘I HAVE to read it’ so I haven’t really been in any hurry to read this one.
Lockstep by Karl Schroeder
This is another one that falls under the ‘but it’s a scifi’ problem. I started this one, it sounds really good, but I read the first chapter and went ‘what?’, there was a lot of gargan I didn’t understand and it was off-putting.
