Top Ten Tuesday: Books I No Longer Want to Read

Top Ten Books I've Decided I'm No Longer Interested in Reading

This is tricky because I usually delete these off my TBR list and forget about them.

There's Someone Inside Your House Making the Team (Case File 13, #2)
Wednesdays in the Tower (Castle Glower, #2) Go Set a Watchman
Looking for Alaska Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)
The Truth About Forever Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)
The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4) Once Was Lost


  1. Waiting for Alaska is John Green's best novel. But if you haven't liked anything of his ever written then maybe it's best to move on! Ha! Go Set a Watchman for me too.

  2. I have to say that as much as I liked Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, I have no desire to read the Raven Cycle. I was actually thinking of doing a post like this at some point soon. There are definitely some books that I wanted to read at one point but have lost their appeal.

  3. Nooooooooo!!!!! You HAVE to still read Once Was Lost. If you didn’t like her other books that’s fine but this was the best one so you can’t judge her books by any other one but this one.
    After reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bones series I don’t want to read Strange the Dreamer either. Not anymore.

  4. I'm so bad about forgetting books on my TBR! I've read Strange the Dreamer and it was soooo long and tedious!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  5. WHAT?! Why aren't you interested in reading Clockwork Angel anymore?! You have to read it!!! And, why aren't you interested in reading There's Someone Inside Your House anymore? Because it's horror and you didn't realize it? Or another reason?

  6. I love some of the books on your list, but in those cases I read those books either before they were published or right after they came out. Sometimes if too much time has elapsed, it's just not going to happen. I also don't want to read Go Set a Watchman, because I fell like Harper was pressured to publish it, and because the spoilers make me feel like it contains nothing of the things I love about To Kill a Mockingbird.

  7. I've red a few of these and honestly, they were all pretty meh for me. I did like GO SET A WATCHMAN. Didn't LOVE it like I love TKAM, but it was interesting to compare/contrast the two.
