Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Will Probably Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books That I Will Probably Never Read

1. Nothing Bad is Going to Happen by Kathleen Hale

I really loved No One Else Can Have You, but Hale's behavior has really turned me off of wanting to invest my time or money in her books. Ever. It really makes me sad.

2. All the Rage by Courtney Summers

I have absolutely nothing against Courtney Summers or her books, but I can't read books that deal with rape. I have DNFed so many because of rape scenes that I know not to even try anymore. I do have to say that I almost talked myself into reading it, which is saying a lot.

3. Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James

All the Nopes. Not going to happen.

4. A Lion Among Men (The Wicked Years #3) by Gregory Maguire

I liked Wicked and Son of a Witch was okay, but every time I pick up this book, I just can't bring myself to read it. It's like Maguire is trying too hard to be "literary" in these books, and I just can't really connect with his imagining the characters.

5. Anything by Jane Austen

I did not love Pride and Prejudice, and I can't really see myself reading any of her other books. The only way I'll end up reading them is if they're something required when I go back to school.

6. City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare

I did not love City of Bones, so I don't see myself going any further in this series or reading any of the other Shadowhunters books.

7. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

This is another series that just isn't for me. I may get around to watching the Insurgent movie because I didn't hate the first movie. The Divergent book, however, was a bit of a snore for me.

8. Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

The first two books in this series were "meh" at best, but for some reason, I kept going. However, I DNFed this bad boy after a chapter, and I have no intention of picking it back up.

9. Brisingr (The Inheritance Cycle #3) by Christopher Paolini

It has been so long since I've read Eragon and Eldest that I doubt I ever get around to finishing this series. I mean, they were good, but I don't want to reread them so I can read Brisingr and Inheritance.

10. Anything by Nicholas Sparks

I read Dear John a few years ago, and it pissed me off so much. I still get angry thinking about that book. So no, I don't think I'll be reading anything else by him.

Which books will you probably never read?
