Top Ten Tuesday #31 – Books I’ll Never Get To

Posted May 5, 2015 by Lillian in Features / 7 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Today I have a confession. I love to read, BUT I don’t always read everything like people assume 😉 which ties perfectly in with today’s Top Ten topic. This week’s topic is “Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read.” A majority of the books on this list are books I’ve been told are must-reads or have a lot of hype behind them. Some it may be that they are several years old and I just don’t have time. It doesn’t mean that I don’t want to read them, just that I may never get around to it. As always covers link to Goodreads 😀

Top Ten Books I’ll Never Read

So I already own Obsidian, Shatter Me, Eragon, The Maze Runner, and The Knife of Never Letting Go so it is safe to say that at SOME POINT I will eventually read them. However I’ve had a few of them for more than a year and haven’t touched them so don’t go betting on it 😉 All of these books are on my TBR, I’ve just never gotten around to them and I’m not sure that I ever will. Are there any on this list I NEED to read? What books made your list?

  1. Hype can be a really bad thing for books because it can put us off reading things we might otherwise have tried. The Lightning Thief was a good read but I found The Giver, The Bad Beginning, and The Maze Runner way over hyped. The Knife of never letting go I thought was a dreadful book! Nice list!

  2. OMG. Obsidian. Girl you have no idea what you’re missing. I read the entire series almost a year ago and I am STILL to this day suffering from book depression. Eragon, too, has been on my list for some time even though I doubt I’ll ever read it but that’s kind of bad since it was written by this insanely talented teen but,*shrugs * I’ll get to it. (Emm, maybe) 🙂

    The Lightning Thief is really good, the Percy Jackson series in general are great reads,’I highly recommend them. A Series of Unfortunate Events are brilliant books too. I like The Maze a Runner although it’s not one of my favourites.

  4. Honestly I would give SHATTER ME a chance. I adored that novel. Actually, that whole series. Yes, the writing style might not suit some readers — but I suppose you won’t know until you try. I personally loved it. I’m the same with Legend… I’ve seen the one around all the time, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to pick it up. I might eventually though. I’ve heard great things, though the author’s other series sounds much more appealing to me.

  5. I kind of don’t blame you for a lot of these! I nearly put Eragon on my list. BUT. Maybe I’ll finish it. I DNF’d it when I was about 12, but I kind of do sit here and wonder how it ended. xD I’m a die-hard fan of Patrick Ness and Lemony Snicket though!! But Lemony Snicket is a very peculiar strain of humour, so I guess if it isn’t your tea, don’t even bother with it. xD I found Legend really boring. 😛
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
