Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested in Reading.
I’m doing something a little different for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (which you’ll probably have realised very quickly even if I hadn’t told you because there are way more than ten books on my list this week). Back in July last year I set a Mid Year To-Read Goal to try and get through all the books I’d brought, that were sitting on my bookshelves gathering dust, but that I hadn’t read.
I managed to get through a few but nowhere near enough, and with the new year I took the opportunity to sort through everything and decided to do a major unhaul of my books. That’s what this post is about.
- Hero by Alethea Kontis
- Dearest by Alethea Kontis
- Inherited by Freedom Matthews
- Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis
- Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder
I used to really love Maria V. Snyder’s Study series, Poison Study is probably one of the most re-read books sitting on my bookshelves, but for some reason her latest releases haven’t interested me as much.
As far as I’m concerned Yelena and Valek’s story ended in Fire Study, and honestly I’m fine with that.
- Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
- How Hard Can Love Be? by Holly Bourne
- What’s a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne
I’ve heard great things about Holly Bourne’s books, and It Only Happens in the Movies is a recent add to my to-read list so it’s very possible that one day The Spinster Club series will find its way back on my TBR list. However, at the moment, it’s a series I’m not that interested in picking up.
- The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles
I mentioned in my Mid Year To-Read Goal post that there was a lot of controversy surrounding Carve the Mark, and that I was still on the fence about whether or not I’d be picking it up. Well I’ve finally come off the fence and decided that this is a book I won’t be reading.
- Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
- The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee
These weren’t books I brought for myself, but books I got through Owl Crate and Fairy Loot subscription boxes. Seeing as I’m not really a massive fan of the Steampunk genre they were never really books I would have picked up on my own anyways. Yes I’ve read a couple of Steampunk books that I enjoyed but they never left me wanting more so I’ve taken these two off my to-read list.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know when you last did a major unhaul of your TBR list, and what books you’re no longer reading in.
