Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.
This is actually really similar to the “Down The TBR Hole” posts that I have been doing so I’m basically just re-naming books for this! However, if you’d like to see what other books I’ve gotten rid of I’ll link the page to them below!
These books are in no particular order.
10.) Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
This was the kind of book/series that was popular during the Paranormal Romance phase of YA and that was a time in YA I’d like to forget about for the most part. It was not my thing so I don’t know why I ever bothered adding this one, plus “fallen angels” aren’t really something I absolutely love reading about.
9.) Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Another big phase in YA: dystopian. Once again, this book was really big during it’s respective phase in YA and I added it for that reason but I just don’t think I’ll ever read it. Dystopians tended to all blend together after a while anyways.
8.) I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
My boyfriend actually really loved this series but I don’t think it’s for me.
7.) The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
I got this book back before I ever had Goodreads or a blog and I just wandered around the bookstore looking for books to read. It was a popular series so I figured I’d buy the first book….and then never read it. I just lost all interest now.
6.) The Giver by Lois Lowry
Another classic and another dystopian. I just don’t think I’ll ever get to reading it, and I don’t mind.
5.) Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
This sounded like a really unique story but I don’t really enjoy slow books that rely on the overall atmosphere too much. I also think it might be a little too odd for me.
4.) Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I read “Divergent” when it first came out and liked it but didn’t love it, it’s been YEARS now and I just have no interest in continuing with the series.
3.) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
I tried reading this one and just couldn’t get into it, I’m also starting to think Holly Black’s writing just might not be for me because I really didn’t enjoy “The Darkest Part of the Forest” either.
2.) The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
I’m done adding high fantasy books just because they’re popular or classics, I don’t have time to read every book that pops up.
1.) The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
I added this when it was still an upcoming release because it sounded interesting and the cover is gorgeous, however, I hear the romance is very prominent and overtakes the plot. So it’s probably not for me.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Do you think I should have kept any of these books on my TBR?
What are some books you’re no longer interested in reading?
