Top Ten Books I'm not sure I want to read

Top Ten Books I'm not sure I want to read

This will be sort of repetitive for those of you that visit my blog but here we go:

1. Maximum Ride Series--I'm just not sure if I want to read it or not. I'm still thinking about this one.

2. Les Miserables--I want to read this but with over 1,000 pages. It's not likely.

3. Percy Jackson series--After having read about a chapter of the first book. I think this one may be just a little too young for my tastes.

4. The Host--I'm just not all that sure if I'll enjoy it, not as much as so many countless others.

 5. The House of Night Series--Yeah. I just don't think so.

6. The Beautiful Creatures series--I hear this book involves witches. I typically don't read books about/featuring witches.

7. The Lorien Legacies series--I just don't think I'll ever get around to reading it.

8. The Book Thief--I just feel like this will always get pushed back in favor of other books.

9. The Perks of being a wallflower--Possible one day but I'm not all that interested in reading it. 

10. Eleanor and Park--This book might very well be amazing but it's just not high up on my TBR list.

  1. E&P is on my list as well. You killed me with having Percy on here but I can totally see how it seem too young. I think I love the series as much as I do because I read it in middle school. But you have a great list, most of which I agree with not picking up :)

  2. My advice would be to not read the Maximum Ride series. The first three books are just fantastic; but then the fourth book rolls along and the series gets AWFUL. It was such a disappointment! Percy Jackson was on my 'not sure' list for a while; they ended up being pretty entertaining. Great list!

  3. I have Percy Jackson on my list, too. I just don't know how I feel about reading it now that I'm older.

    I read and liked The Book Thief, but I started it three times before finally getting into it and enjoying it. It's one of those books that you need to be in a calm mood to read. Perks is my favorite book of all time, and you could probably read it in one sitting. I think I finished it in like an hour and a half.

    I'm with you on The Host. I don't think I'd like it either. Plus, I feel like after all the negative things Twilight is about I never want to give Stephanie Meyer a chance. I don't even think I have it shelved on Goodreads. lol

  4. The Host made my list as well. I've seen the movie so I'm not sure about reading the book. I Am Number Four is one of those series that I've been debating on for years now! I should probably just make up my mind already lol

  5. House of Night started out good, but by like number 5 it started getting stupid. I actually liked Eleanor and Park, and although I don't think it lived up to the hype, it was pretty good. The Book Thief is one that I tried to read but only got about 10% in before I DNF'd it. It was just not my kind of book.

  6. E&P is worth bumping up, I swear! It's wonderful.

    The Host is really good. I loved it and I hate all things alien-related. It even took me 3 tries (that's not helping my case), but it was worth it once you got past the first 100 pages.

    I have gone back and forth about The Book Thief and can't bring myself to try it. It gets bumped for other books.

  7. Eleanor & Park is amazing and so is Percy Jackson! I did read it when I was younger though but I still enjoying going back and rereading it. The series gets better and better as you continue it.

  8. Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Book Thief are both unforgettable stories, and I really think you should give them a try. The Lorien Legacies are fast-paced and fun, if that helps you decide. (:

    As for PJ and Maximum Ride, I love them a ton, but I can see how if you usually don't like Middle Grade it might not suit your taste.

  9. I’ve read The Host, and in the end I really liked it, but the first 150-180 pages are incredibly boring. It took me four days just to read that much! Honestly it was some of the most torturous reading I’ve put myself thorough. BUT!! I was warned about it before-hand, so I was expecting to have to plough through. I’m glad I did, it got so much better. This was back before my blogging days, so I’m not as sure if committing to a 600+ page book that isn’t something I’m super anxious to read is something I’d do!

    Perks is one I'm not too sure about myself. I've seen so many good things, but it never really appealed to me.

  10. The Percy Jackson is a must-read! It's one of my all time favorite series. On the other hand, however, I would put off on The Book Thief. There are some people who are in love with it, but I didn't find it interesting at all. Unless, of course, you enjoy historical fiction. haha ok get reading :D

  11. Agreed on the Percy Jackson series. I feel I've really missed my window for enjoying that series.

  12. Ah. The size of Les Miserables really overwhelms me, and I'm glad I'm not alone. Really relatable list tho!

  13. Great list! If I ever get around to my goal of reading more classics, Les Miserables is next. The Book Thief was sooooo good! As big as it is, it was hard to put down and a quick read. I've tried getting into Eleanor and Park, but just couldn't do it. Great list!

  14. Okay I REALLY recommend you read The Book Thief, but then it is my favourite book. I'm biased. I did like The Perks Of Being A Wallflower but actually found I preferred the movie (don't shoot!!!!) so it might be worth a read. I've also read and loved The Host, despite not liking Twilight. And Maximum Ride, I did enjoy but the series as a whole gets a little long-winded. I did really enjoy it though. Beautiful Creatures made my 'Unsure' list too!

  15. I do like middle grade, but I didn't love Percy Jackson the way I hoped I would. I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower years before the movie and I think I liked it back then, but I doubt I would now. I didn't like the movie anyway.

  16. House of Night pretty much sucks after the first few books... in my humble opinion. Beautiful Creatures sucked at the beginning... but it got better by the 3rd book... and 4th. Progress in my opinion, but I'm not sure about the spin off. >_<

  17. I loved The Host, I have to say. You should read it!! And I really enjoyed E&P and Perks. But I'm definitely a mood reader so if you're not in the mood, I wouldn't worry about it, there are so many books to read!!!! ~Pam

  18. I also loved The Host, very different from the Twilight series. The movie didn't live up to it but I also liked it because so many good things happen inside the mind of the girl and you won't find out about it if you don't read the book. Read it read it read it.
    I really hope you don't end up hating it, lol.
    I would love to read the Percy Jackson Series but like you, feel I missed the train a long time ago. :/
    And about Marked, I read it and I liked it, but I'm not crazy enough about it to continue with the series. They are too many, can't really see myself catching up. :)
