Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read
This feature is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is books I’m not sure I want to read. In no particular order these are:
- Rapture by Lauren Kate – I read the first three Fallen books when I just started blogging, and I’m afraid I might have outgrown them. I don’t think I’ll enjoy Rapture as much as I would have back then
- Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick – Another series I started when it came out. Hush, Hush has gotten a pretty bad reputation as condoning rapist behaviour, and I think this series is probably ruined for me
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I’ve read and loved three Jane Austen books, but I keep putting it off to read P&P. What if it doesn’t live up to my expectations?
- White Cat by Holly Black – The Curse Worker books come so highly recommended, but I’m afraid they might not be for me
- Narcissus in Chains by Laurell K. Hamilton – The first Anita books are great, but from here on the fans get divided. Some call this book the first departure into pure shittiness. Eek
- The Selection by Kiera Cass – This series has the potential to be either awesome or absolute crap
- The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis – I honestly didn’t really enjoy The Magician’s Nephew. Maybe I’m just too old to get into the Narnia thing?
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Gone Girl is heralded to be the best book ever, but the premise doesn’t draw me in. It comes so highly recommended though, so I’m not sure what to do with this one
- Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris – This is the last book in a 13-book long series. I already kind of know how it ends, but still, it will feel so final when I read Dead Ever After
- The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa – This is the sequel to The Immortal Rules, which I thought was pretty good. However, I’m not really interested at all to continue the story line; it seems to me they will be walking for another 400 pages
