I know this topic is a bit controversial, however I want to make it very clear that all opinions below are my own and I mean no offence by anything I say. I feel like a few of the books below are popular books, however they just don’t interest me.
1. Anything new releases by Zoe Sugg. I picked up her first book Girl Online just so I would be able to say that I gave it a go. I absolutely hated it. Not because I hate Zoe (I don’t), I just found the entire plot predictable and boring. Heck, I guessed the “plot twist” the moment the main love interest was introduced. Definitely not interested in giving her another go.
2. Anything else by Holly Black. I read The Coldest Girl in Cold Town early 2015 and honestly, it was such a drag to get through. I found the writing rather bland, and after looking into her other books, none of the plots tickle my fancy and I don’t see the point.
3. Anything else by Nicholas Sparks. Although I have read two of his books when I was younger, I definitely can’t see myself reading another one. In general I only enjoy reading romance sparingly, and if I ever do have the urge to read a romantic book I would most likely pick up something with a bit more depth.
4. Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver. I have no intention of ever picking these up. I attempted the first book back in 2012 and could not get into it, and from what I’ve heard about the rest of the series I just have no interest.
5. Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I could go into great detail as to why I don’t want to read this book but I’ll put it simply: I don’t want to read erotic Twilight fanfiction.
6. Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The premise of this one doesn’t interest me, and from what I’ve heard about the series as a whole, I would really rather not waste mytime.
7. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I attempted to read this book back in 2011 without much luck. Over time, I have definitely lost interest in this series and cannot see myself picking it up over something else I’d much rather read.
8. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. I honestly just have no interest in reading this one. I’ve also heard terrible reviews about the final book, and I don’t really feel like reading something that people I trust haven’t enjoyed.
9. The 100 by Kass Morgan. Honestly, I enjoy the television version of this series so much that I cannot see myself reading the book series. I’ve heard it’s very different, however, I just hold no desire to see the characters in any other way.
10. Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I bought this book shortly after the movie was released and proceeded to give it away a week later. I couldn’t get into it. I didn’t enjoy the movie. Ugh.
I’d love to know what everyone else thinks about these books and whether or not you think I should change my mind about them!
