Hey there~ I’m late…as usual. It has been so long since I’ve done this. Anyways, first of all, for those who doesn’t know:
Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group made by Lainey on Goodreads.
Today’s (Well, not today today, since it was supposed to be last Wednesday) topic is books you will never read.
Twilight book series
When I was made aware of this book series a few years ago (almost a decade?), it was over-hyped, and then, the movie came out. Don’t get me wrong, at that time, I really love vampire books. I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and so grew up into a teenager who loves vampire books. But yeah, then, these books were over-hyped, everyone was talking about it in class, and the vampires sparkle! I kind of felt like I am betraying all that I love about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel books.
Divergent Trilogy + Four
I tried with this book. I watched the movie, and I didn’t really like it. But that’s more because I don’t really like watching book to movie movies since they change things. So anyways, after watching the movie, I thought I’d give the book a try. Perhaps I would like the book better than the movie. Besides, it’s YA dystopia, one of my favourite genre. I read half a page and ended up leaving the book on my desk for one year. Again, it was kind of over-hyped, and it’s more of my sister’s thing, so yeah. I don’t think I will ever read that again. Not that I’ve already read it, because half a page doesn’t count.
Hush Hush series
I bought the first book in 2010. I was still a teenager back then, and still love Vampire and Angel books. So, I bought Hush Hush. It was a meh read, and I didn’t buy Crescendo, Silence and Finale until recently. I thought I was going to read them because I’ve read Hush Hush and I didn’t like not finishing something I started, but then, I just lost interest. Besides, the first book was just meh to begin with, so I never did reread it. That’s why I will never read the second, third and final books in the Hush Hush series.
I bought these when I was eighteen, and still pretty much in love with Angel books. At that point in my life, I have no knowledge of Goodreads (I know, that’s just sad). Anyways, I bought these books, but I left it on my shelf for years because I decided to read other books first. When I decided I want to read these books last year, I went to Goodreads, and read some reviews. That pretty much made me not want to read these books anymore. I mean, one or two or three negative reviews, that’s still okay, whatever, you don’t influence me. But when there are more than that, and they tagged the book with Mary Sue-ish main character, sexist and THEIR BRAIN CELLS FREAKING DIED, well… So, now, these books just sat on my shelf, at the back row. And I’ve regretted buying these books, more than I regret buying Beautiful Disaster.
I bought this because the cover was pretty, and the summary seemed like something I would love. I don’t know whether it was because I tried reading this when I didn’t have the mood to read contemporary women’s lit, or whatever, but because of that I didn’t get pass a few sentences before leaving it on my bookshelf for years. And I don’t think I’ll ever pick it up again, sadly.
Fifty Shades of Grey
I completely forgot about this at first haha But this is one book I am most sure I will never read. And not because it’s erotica. But because my friends said I’d be better off just sticking to my smut fanfictions LOL
So, that was my list. What are yours? Do we have anything in common? Comment please 🙂 Thank you for reading~
