Popular Books I Will Not Be Reading

Hello friends! Today, as the title suggests, I will be telling you what popular books that are not on my TBR, whether because I’ve seen negative reviews for it, or the synopsis just doesn’t draw me in. I apologise if one of the books on the list is your fave, maybe one day I’ll try to read them, but right now, it’s likely I will not.

And without further ado, here are 5 books I will not be reading:

  1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber: I’ve heard mixed reviews for this book, but from the people I trust, none of them have liked it and the reasons why have put me off this book too. 
  2. Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor: Look, I’ve tried Laini Taylor’s books before and didn’t love them, and Strange the Dreamer is a massive book and I don’t want to invest my time in it when I didn’t love the author’s writing before. But this is a book that I might pick up on a whim, because the synopsis (and fanart) do intrigue me.
  3. Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I was interested in this book back when it was everywhere, but after hearing reviews on it, I don’t think I’ll be picking this up anytime soon. It has aspects that I don’t like, such as bullying.
  4. Warcross by Marie Lu: Marie Lu is a hit and miss for me, and though I appreciate that she is an Asian author, I don’t think I’ll be picking this one up because her writing isn’t really for me and the synopsis isn’t that intriguing. 
  5. Twilight by Stephanie Meyers: Okay, not ever going to pick these up even though I see them all the time at bookstores and the library, because it doesn’t sound like something I’d read and I dislike love triangles, unless they’re done SUPER well.

And that’s all I have today. What are some books you don’t think you’ll be reading? Have you read any of the books on my list?

  1. Strange The Dreamer was the first Laini Taylor book that I read and I loved it. I won’t be reading the rest of the Illuminae files or any of Rick Riordan’s books after Percy Jackson and the Olympians or Heroes of Olympus. I read both those series and was not impressed with them in more ways than one.

    1. I’m on the fence about Obsidio, maybe when my library gets a copy, I might try it. I’ve only recently started reading Rick Riordan’s books but I find them calming to read if I in a nervous or jittery state


  2. Give Strange a go, definitely pick it up on a whim. I’ve read Strange & Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I loved Strange in comparison. Her writing has definitely grown and Lazlo is precious. 🙂
