Hey, it’s Mikaela back at it again with another tag!
I feel like I haven’t done one in a while, and I thought, why not schedule one for September! I discovered this tag months ago, I’m pretty sure, and I’ve always been interested in it since I have so many books I don’t want to read! So, let’s get to it!
1. A Really Hyped Book You’re Not Interested In Reading
It may be the Year of Contemporary for everyone else, but definitely not for me! And I’ll throw in an uninteresting fantasy as well so I don’t look like an awful person who’s tired of everyone talking about the same contemporary books (even though I totally am).
2. A Series You Won’t Start/Won’t Be Finishing
Regarding series I won’t start, I actually have several! For YA, no matter how many times people want me to read The Bone Season, I have zero interest in reading the series, especially one that’s supposed to be seven books long! I have enough trilogies that I still haven’t finished, so there’s zero reason to add an even longer, unfinished series. Also, the Passenger duology! I didn’t like The Darkest Minds trilogy at all, and I’ve heard that the books are just as slow-paced as that trilogy, so I’m skipping out on that. And I’ll throw in Outlander and Game of Thrones because I can’t handle reading 5+ 700+ page books, damn it!
3. A Classic You’re Not Interested In
Um, besides all of them?
I’m not a fan of romance or slow-moving books, and from what I’ve heard, the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen are just that, so I’m going to skip out on those! Sorry not sorry.
4. Any Genres You Never Read?
I have three big ones! Historical fiction, because I’m not really a history fan in the first place and they usually take place in the same eras or parts of history over and over again to the point where it gets boring. Paranormal romance, because nine times out of ten it’s just a Twilight rip-off. Contemporary romance, because it bores me to death, it’s always romance-heavy (and I’m just not a fan of mainly romance), and it’s all extremely predictable; what ELSE will happen in this teenage love story besides falling in love, angst, some family subplot, and a happy or bittersweet ending? Obviously, I’ve read books in all three of these genres and have favorites in all of them, but these just aren’t my type.
5. A Book On Your Shelves You’ll Probably Never Actually Read
I’ve actually talked about this in a post from last month, but if we’re talking physically on my shelf, I’d probably go for Delirium by Lauren Oliver! I got it a long time ago because it sounded interesting, got bored while reading it, and I’ve never attempted to pick it up again nor do I think I ever will.
(The new covers are GORGEOUS, though; I have to admit.)
Do we share any of the same answers? What are some books or genre that you just don’t want to read?
