This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish a bit different. It’s all about books that are *not* on our giant TBR lists (or maybe they are and we finally admit to ourselves that in reality we will probably never get to most of them). Anyway. I am fairly certain that I am not ever going to read James Joyce or Moby Dick or any number of classics that I probably should have, so I have kept my list to current titles only.
1. Maze Runner by James Dashner. I could not get into the audio because I can’t handle a full cast. I never felt an overwhelming need to try it in print.
2. Graceling by Kristen Cashore. See above.
3. The Heir by Kiera Cass. The Selection was like a train wreck. I couldn’t stop myself. I had to look despite the fact that I actually disliked each and every book in the series. I will not waste any more time in this convoluted world.
4. Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I wanted to like this one, but I couldn’t get past the first chapter.
5. Anything John Green writes in the future. TFIOS was a deal breaker. I am done with him.
6. Just One Year by Gayle Forman. I was underwhelmed with Just One Day. I am not sure I will read anymore Gayle Forman.
7. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I just think that ship has sailed for me. It’s been a while since I have read a vampire book.
8. The Recruit by Robert Muchamore. This has be on my TBR list for years. I will probably never get to it.
9. After the End by Amy Plum. I was not ready to start a new series when this one came out so I fear I may never go back and read it as more books in the series become available.
10. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raach. See above.
Bonus: I try to avoid cancer books and Holocaust books like the plague. I hesitate to say NEVER, because, well, every now and then one tricks me into trying it.
