Tag: Books I’ll (Probably) Never Read

I’ve seen this tag going around recently and I was so happy to see that Laura Beth had tagged me in it! Finally, an excuse to do it. 😀

a really hyped book you’re not interested in reading

I think I’ve seen too many mixed reviews of Caraval. I just have no interest in picking it up.

a series you won’t start/won’t be finishing

Red Queen was fine, I guess, but I didn’t care nearly enough to read the rest of the series.

a classic you’re not interested in

Honestly, I’m not interested in most classics. But War and Peace is 1392 pages and I just don’t care, so I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’ll never read it.

a genre you never read

There are very few genres that I’m not willing to try, but I think I can say with almost 100% certainty that I’ll never read nonfiction about sports. I just don’t care. At all.

a book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read

Hmm. I tell myself that eventually I’m going to read everything that I own. Realistically, that’s probably not true. I won Meternity in a Goodreads giveaway about three years ago and I just can’t find the motivation to read it. It has terrible reviews and the premise (a woman pretending to be pregnant so she can take maternity leave) just makes me cringe.

I’m not tagging anyone in particular in this one, but if you want to steal it, please feel free! And please make sure to link back to this post so I can see your answers! What are some books you’re not interested in reading? Let’s talk in the comments!

      Of course! I love tags!

      I’m glad you agree with me on War and Peace. And Meternity is one of those books that I keep telling myself I’m going to read… but then again, it’s been years and I still haven’t picked it up.

    I’ve read Caraval and the whole Red Queen series… if you don’t already think you’d love them, you’re not missing much. I liked RQ a lot but its skippable.
    Totally agree about sports nonfiction and War and Peace. That’s the kind of book I feel like I should have read… but it’s just not going to happen. 😦
    Think I’ll steal this tag. Thanks!

    Oh but I love Caraval, and Legendary even more haha. No, but I totally understand. Every book is not for everyone! I totally agree with RQ. I made it through book 3, but don’t even care what happens in the finale, sorry not sorry. Also, that Meternity book does sound ridiculous.

    I’m with you on Red Queen and probably Caraval (I still feel like I’m curious, but not enough to purchase it myself). A part of me thinks I might like to check out War & Peace if I ever have a lot of time on my hands and nothing else to read, but yeah. There are so many other books in the world and so little time!

    I struggled through the entire Red Queen series in hopes it would get better… it didn’t. I’m with ya there!
    Caraval is one I wasn’t too interested in based on the synopsis but it was on sale one day for kindle so I bought it. Maybe I’ll read it one day… Maybe.

    I’m not interested on reading Red Queen either. I’m not even interested on starting it. I sometimes consider giving it a chance when I see how cheap it is in local stores but I haven’t really heard any good things about it.

    I read Caraval in January, and I do think it’s way to overhyped than it should be. Took me like 3/4 of the book before I got into it. I have legendary, debating whether to read it or just call it quits tbh.

    I’m reading War and Peace. And it seems I will still be reading it for a while! My only complaint so far is it’s hard to keep the names straight: they are all Russian, and it’s impossible to bring with me (it’s like…a brick). A friend lent it to me, otherwise I would have uploaded it. I’m also reading The Count of Monte Cristo, in the original french. It’s surprisingly good. But for some strange reason I seem to have chosen books set in the Napoleonic era, not that that was my plan! I’ll be posting reviews…in a couple of years!
