There is rarely a book I will never read, but this week I’m talking about the books that I don’t really have a desire to pick up right this second. You know the books — maybe they are over-hyped or maybe they are just not your cup of tea right now, but you really don’t care about them. Let’s get started.
1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany
I’m sure there were gasps heard round the world at that one. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan — I’m a true Harry Potter fan. I’m not satisfied with Harry Potter World because they could have done so much more, I waited weeks to watch the last movie because I didn’t want it to really be over, and I read the sixth book in fewer than 24 hours. I have absolutely no desire to read a book that will probably ruin the series. Excuse me, a play.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
I don’t think I even need to justify this one.
3. Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer
I remember when this was “leaked”. I was probably in high school and everyone went insane for it. I’m not going to lie, I went through my Twilight phase, like any normal 7th grader, but I hated Breaking Dawn (probably because I was a huge Jacob fan), and thought it was kind of immature of her to refuse to publish her book (that people were genuinely excited about) because a couple chapters got leaked.
4. Paper Towns by John Green
Unfortunately, I have read this book, but it’s one I really regret. While I haven’t been a HUGE fan of any John Green novels, I could see what people liked about them. I’ll never understand the appeal of Paper Towns. Margo is pretentious (even more so than all the other Green characters) and there’s absolutely zero development in the entire novel.
I’m sorry, but I can’t find a final 5th book for this list. I’m usually pretty open minded about books and I’m willing to give anything a chance. What are the books you just have no interest in reading? Let me know in the comments below.
