Top Ten Tuesday

Books I’m No Longer Interested In Reading


Top Ten Tuesday is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! Most of us are familiar with Top Ten Tuesday by now, but if your new to this, a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is ‘Top Ten Books You’re No Longer Interested In Reading. I have added so many books to my TBR, especially since I’ve started blogging and engaging more in the reading community, but a lot of them I don’t think I will ever get round to reading, purely because, while they sounded interesting at the time, they don’t really appeal to me anymore…

The Book of You by Claire Kendal


Daughter by Jane Shemilt


If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch


A Trick of the Mind by Penny Hancock


Matched by Ally Condie


You, Me, and Other People by Fionnuala Kearney


The Maze Runner by James Dashner


You by Caroline Kepnes


The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


That’s all for today’s list, although I’m sure there are plenty others I could’ve added! I find that if I don’t read a book straight away after discovering it, I’ rapidly lose interest in reading it, unless it is an extremely hyped book that’s to my taste. I’d love to know if you’ve read any of these, and whether they are worth reading, and feel free to link your lists as well!


Until next time…

I found making my list this week difficult because saying you’re not interested feels a bit negative doesn’t it. I think it’s more a question of time and the fact you simply can’t read all the books as much as you might want to. I’ve read three off your list – I think my least favourite was Maze Runner although it received a lot of favourable attention. It just didn’t work for me.

I’m also not interested in maze runner, not even Dylan O’Brien can change my mind which is SHOCKING. i did love Matched but it’s been so many years, I was in middle school and now I’m in college so I think my opinions might have changed 😀 LOVE THIS LIST! ❤

Hmm. I think I have The Bone Clocks somewhere. And Cloud Atlas. I always think hyped books can lead to disappointment. I wish I could be a teenager again, totally oblivious to the difference between David Mitchell, Phillipa Gregory and JK Rowling. I used to read anything and everything and judge by story alone. 🙂

I tried Maze Runner because my sister (who isn’t a huge reader) loved it, but I had to DNF. Too boring, and I didn’t like the writing style.

I don’t think I’ll ever read GoT. I just finished watching the show (I know, I’m way behind on the times), and I enjoyed it, but I don’t usually like reading epic fantasies or series. And I think it would be hard to keep track since the books and show deviate.

I haven’t read any of these. But yes, I wanted to read GoT series and the Maze Runner at some point. I am not sure though when that time will come 😛 The GoT series is too big and I guess I am just satisfied with the TV series? (It’s my all time favorite) 😀
And I am not sure, why I am seeing The Maze Runner on almost everyone’s list? 😛
