Sorry we haven't published in forever. it's Stella's turn to publish a review, so hang in there guys! This is written by yours truly, Claire. Here are my top ten books I'm not so sure I want to read.
I read Divergent a while back, and sort of liked it, but I'm not sure if it's really worth reading the sequel, "Insurgent." Also, I know how the series ends (it was an accident! I'm so sorry...), and I'm not sure I really feel like putting in the effort to get there. I may read it if the next movie comes out, since I'll probably want to see that. Same for "Allegiant" and "Four," the final books in the series.
I have been half-done with this book since June. I want to accept that I am just not going to finish this in the near future, but I'm in denial. Maybe I'll return to it in a few years.
I have read the first two books in the Maximum Ride series, and I own the fourth one (it was 33 cents at a thrift store), but I don't really want to read the third book in the series. I loved the first book, but the second one sort of fell flat, and I heard the series goes downhill from there.
I read the first 80% of the Hobbit, and should probably go back and finish it, but I really just have no urge to read any of the Lord of the Rings books. Sorry.
I tried to read this book about a year ago with my father, but it failed to gain my interest. That'll probably be the end of this classic sci-fi novel for me. I feel sort of bad about it, but not bad enough to go read it in the near future.
I had a collection of all the books when I was a kid, but I only got around to the first 3 or 4. "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" was the only one I really liked (probably since I loved the movie), and the chances of me finishing the series is slim at best.
This book is so gross that it needs no explanation.
This goes for the rest of J.K.'s books as well, I suppose. Harry Potter shaped my childhood, and I'm not sure how I'll like adult novels by Rowling. I feel like I'd be biased since they're not set in Hogwarts, and plus I don't like most adult novels (I prefer young adult since that's what I am.) I know this is on a lot of other lists for similar reasons, so I hope you agree with me.
Think any of these books deserve a chance? Comment below.
