Hi friends! I saw this tag over at Lisa @ Way Too Fantasy’s blog and honestly just really wanted to do it! I believe this was created by Nicole @ Nicole and Her Books on Youtube. So uh…let’s talk about what I don’t want to read!
A popular book everyone loves but you have no interest in reading?
I didn’t like Illuminae at all. And I tried Jay Kristoff’s other sci-fi series but I didn’t click with it much either. So while Aurora Rising does technically sound good, and I know it’s super popular, I’m not reading it. Sorry everyone who likes this book.
A classic book or author you have no interest in reading?
I’ve read quite a few classics, and I’m excited to read others in the future. You know, once school’s done. But The Invisible Man doesn’t really strike me as very interesting right now. I mean, sure, some idiot turned himself invisible. Good for him. Hope it works out okay.
An author whose books you have no interest in reading?
Should I be controversial? Um…I’ll probably have to go with Kristin Hannah. Her books sound fine but also they have absolutely zero buzzwords for me. I struggle with historical fiction and romance a lot, which is what she normally writes, so I think I’ll pass.
A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading?
Orson Scott Card. I forgot exactly what he did, but I remember him just generally being a little…much.
An author you have read a couple books from and decided they weren’t for you?
I’m actually terrible at reading more than one book from any author, because tiny attention span. But I don’t really have an answer for this because it’s rare for me to completely write off an author.
A genre you have no interest in or you couldn’t get into?
Like I said above, straight historical fiction and I have a rocky relationship. Same with magical realism. It’s rare for me to click with a book in either genre, although there are definitely exceptions!
A book you bought but will never read or a book you borrowed from the library but returned unread?
I’m pretty sure this is about a robot and a girl who fall in love. Um…I don’t know…how I feel about that??? Do we even ask the awkward questions here???
A series you have no interest in reading or a series you started but DNF’d?
I might become a bit of a ranting fiend when it comes to this book. But I don’t think I can physically stomach reading about Katherine and Mirabella and (heavens forbid) Joseph for an entire quartet. NEVER.
A new release you have no interest in reading?
There’s actually not one? Like, out of all the high-profile releases, I’m not opposed to most of them.
So that’s it! I tag all of you!! Share with me a book that’s not on your TBR!
