Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is: Throwback Freebie: Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog, Favorite Books Published 5 or 10 or 15 Years Ago, Ten Older Books I Forgot How Much I Loved, etc. etc. Tweak however you want!
Today, I am going to share some books that are older, and that seemingly everyone and their mom has read… only I have not. Because I fail. And I will tell you if I ever might read them. And then you can yell at me in the comments. Sounds legit. (And thanks to Holly and Val who actually answered the question “Hey, what are some books that I haven’t read but everyone else has”. It’s impressive, really.) Also going to stick to YA, otherwise we could straight up be here all day.
Why I Never Read It: Honestly, I had told myself during its hype that I didn’t “like vampires and such”. I don’t really think that’s true, I just thought it was. Oops?
Will I Ever Read It? Nah. I would have, maybe. But I know how it ends. And I still stand by the fact that I am never going to not see Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and sorry, it skews everything.
Why I Never Read It: Don’t throw shit, but I read the first one and didn’t love it? I struggled to get through, I’m sorry, I said it.
Will I Ever Read It? Okay, still no throwing… but no. I might give the movies a go some day? Idk, it’s just… why read something I am not excited about when I have all the other books in the world?
Why I Never Read It: Because back when it was first a thing, I was sure I didn’t like fantasy. Do we notice a pattern?
Will I Ever Read It? Possibly. I have heard mixed reviews, but I do know a lot of people who loved it. So… solid maybe for this one.
Why I Never Read It: Erm. No idea. I hadn’t even heard of it until I started blogging, tbh. Which is weird because I was about 13 when it came out, so where the hell was I?
Will I Ever Read It? Ehhh. Maybe. I know everyone loves it. Also it isn’t super long. So yeah, I may give it a go.
Why I Never Read It: Because I am an asshole? I have always wanted to read it, I own it, so what is my malfunction?
Will I Ever Read It? YES. I really will. Someday. Promise.
Why I Never Read It: Because the books are big. And because I heard some “meh” things about the third book.
Will I Ever Read It? HELL yes. Especially after reading Laini’s amazingly gorgeous Strange the Dreamer, I am absolutely going to read these. Also, I own the whole series, so.
Why I Never Read It: I honestly don’t know? Is it Middle Grade? I can’t even tell. And I also legitimately thought for a long time that Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief were two totally separate entities, so you can see how great I’m doing.
Will I Ever Read It? I mean, it isn’t super likely? I low key want to see the movie though, since half of the cast of The 100 is in it…
If I do ever read it, it’ll be this far superior cover.
Why I Never Read It: See Twilight and my misguided vampire situation.
Will I Ever Read It? Oh, so much yes! I am now a Richelle Mead fan in general, so even if everyone hadn’t read it, I’d want to.
Why I Never Read It: Because I still don’t fully understand what it is? I thought it was a straight up kids’ book, but apparently not? Confusion is the reason, basically.
Will I Ever Read It? I mean, maybe. It’s super short. So there’s that.
Why I Never Read It: Literally just time. I have owned it since I started blogging.
Will I Ever Read It? So, it’s heaped in controversy. But I do still want to read it, to decide what I think. And maybe watch the show? We’ll see how the book goes. If the book goes.
