Books I Will Never Read. Ever.

love of lists

This is strictly a random list post because who doesn’t like lists? I love making lists personally. This one is pretty self explanatory, books I will never read. Ever.

Also before we jump in I understand that everyone’s opinions differ and you might have enjoyed one or some of these books, but I’ve already made up my mind that these aren’t books I’d be interested in ever reading.

I might add as well that this is almost like mini rage reviews except in this case I haven’t read most of them. *shrugs*

The Fifty Shades of Grey Series

This is definitely #1 on my NOPE list, sorry guys but I just REFUSE to do it! Not only am I not a fan of romance or erotica but this just sounds like it’s awful. Reading through the first book (let alone the series) would probably be absolute torture for me. Not to mention I think Christian kind of sounds like an arrogant ass and also even though I haven’t read this book I’m positive Ana is an idiot and if there’s one thing I hate it’s idiotic protagonists.

Plus I think it’s safe to say from what reviews I have read that the writing is atrocious and the book/series depicts an abusive relationship (yeah, yeah I know there’s BDSM but that is not what I’m talking about). Therefore I think it’s safe to assume it’s something I would not enjoy, besides I’ve never had any interest in it in the first place.

The Selection Series

This whole series basically sounds like The Bachelor in a badly done dystopian setting, not to mention the main character’s name is America Singer. Know what she does? She sings. How creative. Basically the whole thing makes me want to roll my eyes, I’ve read a lot of reviews about this series and decided that it REALLY isn’t for me.

Plus I heard the author made some major drama on Twitter and Goodreads because of negative reviews, I don’t need drama-causing authors in my life.

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined

Ok, Ok when I was in middle school I did enjoy the Twilight series but looking back now I realized they were pretty much crap. If I re-read them I would probably still enjoy them and think they’re crap at the same time. Needless to say though, I will not be picking up anymore Twilight related books ever. Ever.

I also heard it isn’t even “reimagined” all that much, basically Meyer gender swapped Bella and Edward and made a new book. Talk about milking the cash cow.

The Rest of the Mortal Instruments Series

So I read “City of Bones” and it was awful, I loathed it and honestly don’t know how I even finished reading it. It was downright boring. This series is way too hyped up and it doesn’t even live up to that hype at all. If you want to know all of the reasons why I hated “City of Bones” and why I won’t be continuing, go check out my rage rant review.

The point is that I won’t be finishing this series, ever. Not in a million years will you be able to convince me of reading ANYTHING written by Cassandra Clare.


The Matched Series

Not to sound like a hipster or anything but this series is about as mainstream as it gets. One of my reasons of NOT wanting to read it is because of how ridiculously mainstream it is, yes that probably sounds a little shallow but hey that’s just what I’m thinking. Plus I’ve read some reviews that think it’s a mess, and from the blurb I think I can safely say it probably is a mess.

Also it’s just REALLY something I don’t want to read, with a passion. I actively don’t want to read this series.

That wraps up my little list of book hatred, and once again I’m sorry if you liked any of these books please don’t be offended. Everyone’s got different opinions!

    Oh my goodness, great choices- now if only I could erase half these books from my mind… (except mortal instruments, bit of a guilty pleasure for me)

      Thanks and I agree I wish I could do the same with some others I’ve read, and everyone has those books like that. For me it’s kind of Twilight like I enjoyed it and I wish I didn’t, haha 🙂

      Well thank you! I’m glad you agree with these books, I was afraid a lot of people wouldn’t 🙂

    Wise decision with 50 shades. The only experience I have with that book is when Ellen (I think it was Ellen) read part of it, and it was the funniest thing ever. I agree with you on the Selection and Life & Death (though Twilight is on my Books I Will Never Read List).
    This is a fun idea though. I might have to do it sometime if you don’t mind :).

      I’m glad I put those on the list then, haha. And go right ahead I don’t mind at all, if you do a list I’d love to read your picks! 🙂

    We wasted good trees for these awful books! You better add Shane Dawson’s “I hate myselfie” memoir. That book is sexist, racist, slut shames and make dtae-rape jokes..

      Ah yes I saw some of the drama you had to put up with that one on Goodreads. It really pissed me right off, I honestly didn’t even know about that book until then. You’re right I should add it to the list, I’ll have to go do more research to form more of an opinion to rant about 🙂

    Great choices for hatred – I fully support your list! ;). If only we could un-read things when we make the mistake of choosing them (I’m looking at you, Mortal Instruments). Great octopus gif! Love it.

      Thank you! I wish I could unread a few more as well as City of Bones! Glad to see you agree with me though, I was worried a lot of people wouldn’t. 🙂

    Yeah I’m not picking up 50 shades nor the “new” version of Twilight. I’m still 50/50 with regards to the Mortal Instruments, I haven’t read City of Bones but I’ve seen the movie which I didn’t enjoy. Other readers say that movie doesn’t capture the book, so I might give it a go and see what happens. Overall, great choices! There are too many books to read that it’s nice to make prioritize 😀

      Thank you and yes I agree there’s too many other better books to be reading! City of Bones seems to be a big hit or miss, for me it was a miss but if you do decide to try it I hope you at least enjoy it. 🙂

    I agree with you on all of them!
    The story of Fifty shades is beyond awful and i had tried reading it because i was unaware what the hype was all about, and i could barely get through 3 pages.
    The selection series sounds too bad to even contemplate reading.
    I’d actually like to read Life and death to see how terrible it is and rant about. Even i liked the twilight series way back when i read it.
    I have read almost the entire City of bones series and i can tell you you aren’t missing anything by not reading them. I have to add though, i thought The infernal devices by Cassandra Clare were pretty damn good.
    Matched is not good either; i couldn’t get through it and it’s boring.
    Yay to never reading these books!

      I’m glad you agree with all of these! And I’ve heard a lot of people liked the Infernal Devices a lot better but after going through City of Bones I think it’s safe to say I’m not a Cassandra Clare fan. 🙂

    If only someone had warned me about The Selection and its (equally lame) continuations before I picked up the book. I think I lost a whole clump of brain cells to that book :/

      I’m sorry but I couldn’t help laughing at your comment! But I am glad you agree with it being on this list, and it’s good to know I made a wise decision avoiding The Selection 🙂

    Ahh I love this list so much! 😀 I completely agree with all of these, especially #1. I could never stomach reading about a relationship like that. Plus I’ve also heard people read parts of it and honestly, there’s no chance in hell I could get through that writing without dying laughing 😛

      Thanks and yes so much agreeing, haha. I couldn’t ever read 50 shades even to make fun of it, talk about a tremendous waste of time
