Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things I Quit

Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit or Have Quit

Wow! What a topic. The description goes like this: aka ten book series I think I'm going to abandon, ten bookish habits I want to quit, ten authors I quit reading, ten types of books I'm quitting, ten tropes I want to stop reading about, ten books I marked as DNF (did not finish) recently, etc. Get as creative as you want.

Let's start with Authors

I have not forgiven James Dashner for the frustration that is The Maze Runner series. I still have SO many questions and NO answers! I was hoping for answers in the movies, but that last one was even more ridiculous than the book! I will never read another Dashner book!

Shocker! So many people love John Green, but I'm not really a big fan. I liked Fault in our Stars okay, but I hated Paper Towns. I'm really not interested in reading any of his other books.

I've read Sweethearts and Story of a Girl, and I started the piano one, but I didn't really like any of those. I've given up on Sara Zarr. I feel like I've given her a good try.

Book Habit to Quit

I have a giant pile of books I own and haven't read! I don't want that! If I own it, I want to have read it! My book adoption habit needs some reigning in.

Most Recent Books I've Quit

The Lost Days (Emily the Strange Novels, #1) 556136
1190933 315425
18404312 17347389
Some of these I didn't finish because I was in a reading slump. I plan on finishing The Dream Thieves, and I want to give Alias Hook and Wednesday Wars another try.


  1. I'm glad you're going to give Wednesday Wars another chance one day because I saw that and was seriously thinking, "wow, I don't know if we can still be friends". ; )

  2. so many great books, so little reading time - - we should always feel free to abandon books/authors/series we just aren't enjoying! My TTT

  3. I don't think I'll read any more James Dashner books and I definitely won't be reading any more John Green books.

  4. I gave up on John Green myself. And I've been vacillating between wanting to read Alias Hook and not being sure I'll like it once I start it. Will be interested to hear if you ever finish it and what you think! Perhaps I should see if my library has it...
