Tag: Books I’ll (Probably) Never Read (Take 2)

I cannot believe it’s been six months since Jamsu tagged me to do the Books I’ll Probably Never Read tag! If you want to see my answers from the first time around, they’re here!

a really hyped book you’re not interested in reading

I just have… like less than zero interest in Chain of Gold.

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

I really wanted to love the Bromance Book Club series, but the first book brought back way too many bad memories for me. I’m too nervous to read the rest of the series.

a classic you’re not interested in

I’m still not interested in classics. Crime and Punishment is another that I know I’ll never read.

a genre you never read

I asked my fiance for a genre I never read and he said “spacerotica,” and he’s definitely not wrong.

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

That’s a good question! I go through my shelves pretty regularly to get rid of books I don’t think I’ll read. I can’t think of any that I own right now and don’t plan to read.

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!

ARC Review: The Extraordinaries by T.J. Klune

The Extraordinaries by T.J. Klune
Rating: ★★★★☆
Links: Amazon • TBD • Goodreads
Publication Date: July 14, 2020
Source: ARC via Netgalley

Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. TJ Klune’s YA debut, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.

Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?

After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick’s best friend (and maybe the love of his life).

Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades in TJ Klune’s YA debut.


I have this really bad habit of requesting books on Netgalley without fully reading the synopsis. I just knew that this book had a fun cover, had something to do with superheroes, and was written by T.J. Klune, who I’ve only ever heard good things about. As I was reading, I wrote in my little reading journal “It’s like Renegades meets Fangirl!” and wow… that’s literally in the synopsis. For once, the comparison worked!

First things first, this book was a ton of fun. This was the fun, quirky, nerdy superhero book I never knew I needed. Nick and his friends were great and I absolutely believed in this world where superheroes are real and the police are just exasperated with them. This book almost felt like a movie because it was so descriptive! I could almost see everything playing out in front of me.

I loved how Nick kept trying anything he could think of to make himself an Extraordinary and he never gave up regardless of how many times he failed or how many people told him he was crazy. Also, I thought I knew what was going on with the various superheroes (and villains?) but I did not.

There are at least two major plot points that are hinted at and left open at the end of the book. This was a little bit frustrating for me because I really wanted answers, but now I see that this is going to be a trilogy and things make a little more sense. The next book has no title or cover yet, but it’s set to come out at some point next year. (Do what you will with that information.)

All in all, this was a super fun book and I would definitely recommend it as long as you’re okay with waiting for answers. I would also recommend not taking it seriously, because it’s meant to be a little bit silly.

Name a book that makes you cry.

Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

It’s hard to believe that I read this two and a half years ago already, but Love and Other Words made me cry so much.

Name a book that makes you smile.

Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

I think I smiled the whole way through Heartstopper.

Name a book that makes you feel passionate.

Rules for Being a Girl by Candace Bushnell & Katie Cotugno

Rules for Being a Girl made me so angry. I feel like it called out the unfair expectations placed on teenage girls really well.

Name a book that makes you feel cosy.

Book Love by Debbie Tung

Book Love just makes me want to curl up in my bed and read.

Name a book that transports you to a magical place.

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Definitely Nimona! Nimona’s powers are so cool.

Name a book that scared you.

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

I hardly ever read anything spooky, but 172 Hours on the Moon got me.

Name a book that makes you feel jealous.

More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn

It was my dream to be a music journalist when I was younger, so I am definitely jealous of Vada in More Than Maybe!

Name a book with an inspiring female character.

The Story That Cannot Be Told by J. Kasper Kramer

Ileana does not give up in The Story That Cannot Be Told!

Name a book with an inspiring male character.

Saga, Vol. 1 (Saga Collected Editions, #1)

I think Nick from The Extraordinaries is really inspiring. He just keeps trying and trying and trying for his goal, regardless of any setbacks.
