Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group created by gingerreadslainey. This week’s topic is Books You’ll Never Read. I’m mostly open-minded to what books I’ll read, so I don’t like to write books off and say I’ll never read them.However, there are a few books that I don’t plan on picking up, ever.
1.) 50 Shades of Grey by E.L James. Do I even need to explain? I hate even mentioning this book on my blog. This book really isn’t my thing. I’ve heard the plot is bad and the writing is bad and I don’t want to waste my time on it ever.
2.) Unhinged – A.G. Howard. I had such high hopes for the first book in this series. It sounded like such a great premise and I love anything Alice in Wonderland related. But the first book, Splintered, was a huge disappointment. It had so many issues and it was boring. I never plan on continuing this series. There’s a part of me that’s curious but I’ve got better things to do with my time. It’s a shame because the covers of these books are beautiful…
3.) Hunger – Michael Grant. I read the first book in this series, Gone, ages ago. It started out well but I grew bored and the book was a mess of so many things and I ended up speed reading the last 100 pages. I know some people love these books but it’s just not for me unfortunately. Plus, there are 6 books in this series! It’s a long series and I can’t really be bothered with it.
4.) Allegiant – Veronica Roth. By the time this book was released I had lost interest in the Divergent series. I already know what happens in this book as a result of being spoiled by friends. Plus, Insurgent wasn’t great and I didn’t like the direction that the story line was taking. So there’s not really much point in me picking this up.
5.) The Hobbit – J.R.R Tolkein. I feel so bad including this on a list that also includes 50 Shades of Grey. I’m sorry but let me explain. I want to read this book. But I’ve tried picking it up before and I just couldn’t get into. The writing is way too descriptive and it takes too long for any action to happen. I’m someone who likes fast-paced books and this book isn’t a quick read. I might try and finish it at some point but odds are I’ll never read this book.
What books will you never read? Do you agree with any of my choices?
