Popular books I haven’t read (and aren’t going to)

listThere are some books everyone refuses to read.  Here are some of mine. 

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – Just nope.  Not my thing. 

2. The Mortal Instraments/Clockwork whatever/Lady Midnight by Cassandra Claire – The author is a pretty terrible person and her genera is not really my thing either. 

3. Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien + The Hobbit – the reasons for these books are complicated and I might one day write about it.  (note to self: good future blog post). 

4. Anything John Green by John Green – not my type of book, not my type of author. 

5. 50 Shades of Grey by someone that couldn’t be bothered to google BDSM – N.O.P.E.

6. Armada by Ernest Cline – Ready Player One was absolute crap so I’m not going to give this guy’s books another chance.

  1. hahaha I should make a similar list. Lord of the Rings,Perhaps Harry Porter(I just don’t read fantasy), Game of Thrones( the whole set) and 50 Shades of Gray would be on my list. I like John Green’s The Fault in our Stars though 🙂

  2. I’m not reading John Green either. Not my thing. I didn’t know about Cassandra Clare until after I already owned and read most of the books out at that point. I’m not planning to continue the Shadowhunter series. I only got the Magisterium book 1 because of Holly Black.

    I read Armada in May and if you didn’t enjoy Ready Player One there is no point picking that one up.

  3. Lol! I’d love to read your reasons on not reading LotR. I liked the Hobbit but the Fellowship was boring. Dunno if I’ll continue.
    You’re the first I’ve come across who refuse to read Mortal Instruments because Clare isnt a nice person. I often hear bloggers and booktubers refuse to read other authors’ books for similar reasons but continue to read Clare’s.
    I read City of Bones but didn’t like it much. And I read Fault in Our Stars and ugh! Didn’t like it.

    • I think the Claire thing is because I learned about it before I read them (and I didn’t read them because it’s not really my genera). Also I heard the first few were HP rip offs and other plagiarism issues before I even considered reading them, which gives me an edge. Now something like Ender’s Game I read before I heard Card was a crappy person and he’s a crappy person in general, not just to readers of his books (who have supported him with money) unlike Claire.

      I do plan to write something about LotR at some point and really should start a draft of the post to remind myself.


      • Ah! I heard the same about Clare before I read her books and surprisingly, it made me want to read her book to see how closely it matches others. There are a lot of similarities.
