Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read

top ten tuesday key

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Broke and Bookish. This week’s feature is my ten books I will probably never read. This is a very controversial topic because I don’t want to hate on any authors or books (although I do have my fair share of books I refuse to read). Anyway, I decided to twist this topic a little bit to keep the conversation more positive. These are books I really do want to read, but something’s keeping me from them! Hopefully, I’ll get to them eventually.

Category 1: These Have Been on My TBR Since 2012

Defiance (Defiance #1)The Night CircusPoison Study (Study, #1)

These books have the longest period ever spent on my TBR shelf. I feel really bad for them, because I still do want to read them. There’s just something that’s not grabbing my immediate attention right now. I’m beginning to wander if I’ll ever get around to them.

Category 2: These Books are REALLY Long and Intimidating

Outlander (Outlander, #1) The LuminariesA Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

All of these have HUGE fans, but are also LONG books. I’m worried about the time needed to finish any one of these, although I will probably like them in the end. Starting them will probably be the hardest part.

Category 3: The Hype Is Scaring Me Off

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens AgendaA Darker Shade of Magic (A Darker Shade of Magic, #1)

I talked about a topic branching off from this a while ago, but I am so worried about not liking either of these books. Right now, most bloggers are loving both of these books and they are pretty much everywhere. I’m worried about not liking them – especially because I have such high expectations at this point. I’m thinking I will read them when the hype dies down so I can go into them with a clear mind.

Category 4: WHERE are you?

The Secret Sky: A Novel of Forbidden Love in AfghanistanBrazen

I can’t find these anywhere! I’ve tried my bookstore, my library, my Kindle library. At this point, I have no idea how I’m going to get my hands on either. But here’s to keeping up the search!

What books are you thinking you’ll never read?

  1. Didn’t love the Outlander books, though I was pretty young when I read it so *shrugs*. Loved loved loved the George RR Martin books, but I agree they can be intimidating. Totally worth it, though. The Poison Study books have also been on my TBR list forever, and I even started the first book, but the first few pages was pretty damn “meh” for me. Which also means the follow-up series probably won’t get read either.

    Good list, and SO late in commenting for TTT, but I completely love to see everyone’s lists. Mine is at http://www.leiawriting.co.za/blog/top-ten-tuesdays-2/
