Books I Will Probably Never Read

Well my friends, I’m in a bit of a writing slump at the moment.  Just between school, work, and just life in general, I’m a bit burnt out at the moment when I comes to my blog.  I’ve got a list of post ideas though, so I’ll try to get those going soon.

But for now… here’s another book tag!  The ‘Books I will probably never read’ tag that I found on Jessica’s blog!  Enjoy!

A really hyped book that you’re not interested in reading

I loved Fangirl, but nope… I will not read Carry On.  I honestly didn’t care too much about the fanfiction part of that book and literally skipped the portions when Cath was reading her stories to Levi.

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

For what it’s worth, I tried to read the first book.  I know the series is incredibly popular, but it’s just not my cup of tea.  I’d like to say maybe in the future I’ll try again, but there’s really about a 0.01% chance of that happening.

A classic you’re just not interested in

There’s really a lot of classics that don’t interest me.  But these were the first two I thought of.  Huck Finn is just set too far back for me to care about reading it, and Catcher in the Rye I know next to nothing about (and my mom hates it, so there’s another good reason, haha).

A genre you never read

Historical fiction.  It’s funny because this is my best friend’s favorite genre.  It’s just not me though.  I prefer stories in modern times, or at least no earlier than the 90s.  It’s easier for me to imagine and get a setting in my head while I’m reading.  I never liked history in school either… it bored me and I never did as well in those classes as I did in Math, English, and Phys Ed.

A book on your shelves you’ll probably never read

Royal Escape by Susan Froetschel.  I got this book direct from her (and signed) back in, gosh, like 2009?  She hosted a writing workshop at the library when we used to have those regularly and I couldn’t resist getting it.  But considering that it’s been on my shelf for eight years (and moved with me three times) I doubt I’ll ever actually read the book.  Oops.

 

Are there any books that you’d never read?

    I’m a bit reticent about reading Carry On too because it feels like a Drarry fanfiction. But I might give it a try because I’ve read every other Rainbow book and loved them, so who knows? Great post! ❤

      That might be why I don’t care to read it. I’ve only read two of her books, so I’m looking forward to reading more! (aside from Carry On, of course, haha)

      It just never appealed to me. And I don’t care if everyone in the world loves a book, if it doesn’t catch my interest right off the bat, I won’t read it. But I guess we’re all like that :D

    I liked Carry On, even though I didn’t like the snippets in Fangirl. It’s not really the same story. In Fangirl, the snippets are Cath’s take on Simon/Baz, but Carry On is Rainbow’s take on Simon/Baz. I will say the first 200 pages are slow, but after that I really loved it.

    • Emily @ Mixed Margins says:

      Also I really love Catcher in the Rye. It’s kind of YA, actually. Holden Caulfield, the MC, is going through a lot, which you slowly learn throughout the story. It’s kind of the perfect book about the transition between adolescence and adulthood. And it can also be really funny.

      • Tabby says:

        Hmm, well, in that case I might have to give it a chance anyway. I don’t know when because of my current TBR status, but maybe I’ll throw it in the pile, haha
