Ten books I will probably never read

Ok, I know I will probably earn a lot of hate with this list, but whatever. Also this post was way harder to write than I thought. It’s just that usually I think about what books I want to read and not which I don’t want to read. Anyway, let’s start.

  1. Divergent by Veronica Roth: Just no.
  2. Anything by Nicholas Sparks: I just hate 100% romances, they are just way to cheesy for me and I’ve tried to read one Sparks novel and let me tell you something. I through it after a rough 20% across my room (and I usually don’t do that with books), but it deserved it. I think afterwards I gave it to the welfare.
  3. The Host by Stephenie Meyer: Can I repeat myself? Just no.
  4. Through The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: I hated the first novel in the series, so why should I bother picked up the second one?
  5. Unraveled by Gena Showalter: Loved her Lords Of The Underworld series, but the first books of this series wasn’t it for me, so I won’t bother with reading Unraveled.
  6. Marked by P.C. & Kristin Cast: Never!
  7. The Dead Girls’ Dance by Rachel Caine: Glasses Houses, the first in series, was just bad – no other way to describe it – so nope, won’t pick this up.
  8. Rosemarie and Rue by Seanan McGuire: I tried a sample of this, but it constains fae. Fae and me do not mix, so no.
  9. Kindling Moon by Jenn Bennett: Kind of the same problem like with Rosemarie and Rue, only this time it’s about magician.
  10. Claimed by Rebecca Zanetti: I tried Fated and I just did not like it. It made absolutely no sense, so why should I care for Claimed?

Here is was my “No”-list. What books will you never pick up? Leave your link in the comment section below.

TT #32 / FPTI #20

I decided to combine the Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Jenn (AKA MizB of SBR) from A Daily Rhythm, with the First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea.


Today I’m going to feature Marked by Kaylea Cross.

Opening:

Seated in the back of a tactical truck, Special Agent Jake Evers took a good-natured ounch to the arm from one of his teammates without flinching.
“Good to have you back, farmboy. I’ve missed you,” Tucker said in his southern-Alabama drawl as he sat next to him on one of the benches built into the back along one side. “Been a while since you graced us with your presence on an op. Think you remember the ropes around here after all your vacay time?”
Vacay, ha. “Pretty sure, I do”. He’d missed the guys too but he hadn’t been gone that long. Only around three weeks this time, overseas again with a handpicked paramilitary team led by the NSA’s legendary Alex Rycorft.

Teaser from 11%:

He’d arrived early, twenty minutes ago now, and knew Rachel would be walking in any minute. The woman had always been a stickler for being on time, so even if it had been two years since he’d last seen her and half a year since they’d last had contact he was sure she wouldn’t have changed that much.
