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.
- Divergent by Veronica Roth: Just no.
- 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.
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer: Can I repeat myself? Just no.
- 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?
- 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.
- Marked by P.C. & Kristin Cast: Never!
- 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.
- Rosemarie and Rue by Seanan McGuire: I tried a sample of this, but it constains fae. Fae and me do not mix, so no.
- Kindling Moon by Jenn Bennett: Kind of the same problem like with Rosemarie and Rue, only this time it’s about magician.
- 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.
I got this idea from Freya of Sound Of A Voice and she allowed me to steal it 🙂
Ally Carter: I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1)
Patricia Briggs: Fair Game (Alpha & Omega #3)
Also I finally got a library card, so I kind of went insane and got a LOT of stuff. And I discovered that audiobooks and me do indeed mix if I like the reader. I still do have to figure out if I like the readers of the following reader. Also I will put all the english (book) covers in here, but with the exception of two, I got everything in german. So here is my very first Library Haul.
J.R. Ward: Lover At Last (borrowed in english)
Gena Showalter: Intertwined; Unraveled (german: Unsterblich verliebt; Verflucht verliebt)
Chloe Neill: Some Girls Bite; Friday Night Bites (german: Frisch gebissen; Verbotene Bisse)
Jennifer L. Armentrout: Obsidian (borrowed in english)
Kiersten White: Paranormalcy (german: Flames’n’roses – Lebe lieber übersinnlich)
Ally Condie: Matched; Crossed; Reached (german: Die Auswahl; Die Ankunft; Die Flucht)
Lauren Kate: Fallen; Torment (german: Engels Nacht; Engels Morgen)
Lauren Oliver: Delirium (german: Delirium)
Kerstin Gier: Dream a little dream (german: Silber – Das erste Buch der Träume)
Laini Taylor: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (german: Daughter Of Smoke and Bone)
Richelle Mead: Vampire Academy (german: Blutsschwestern)
When I’m going to listen to all those audiobooks you ask. Well, everyday I need two hours to travel to school and back home. So I have two hours everyday to listen to them 😉 I’m probably done with one each week.
Also did you know that most of the more popular audiobooks are on YouTube? Or are read by some awesome youtubers, for example (that’s for the german folks) look up crazyLisabooks. She reads the Mythos Academy series. She’s already done with the whole series and I really like her voice.
FYI: There will be no Top 3 today, because I’m currently hooked to audiobooks. Obviously.
