Top Ten Books I’ll (Probably) Never Read
This is a tough list because, I mean, NEVER – that’s really saying something. I don’t like that word. And you all know how completely indecisive I am (just look at my Why I’m Changing My Ratings post and my What I Did Instead of Changing My Ratings post that went up the next week), so really, I don’t think that I can say never about anything. Still, there are definitely some books that I can say I will probably never read!
I Tried. I Really Tried.
Too Darn Many Books in the Series.
I love the idea of urban fantasy, and there are tons of urban fantasy series that I think I’d probably love (these are just three of the really popular ones that I’ve told myself I might read someday). But I can’t handle that urban fantasy series always have SO many books! It’s a huge commitment, and I just can’t make it!
I actually did start reading A Song of Ice and Fire – and I really enjoyed it. But I stopped reading at some point when I was waiting for the next book in the series and I never picked it back up again. This is actually the entry on this list that I’m most likely to pick back up again – if Martin ever manages to finish the series. After all, I am finally on the last book of the Wheel of Time series – even if it has taken me ages to complete it!
Just Can’t Do It.
I used to think that I would just never read anything even close to erotica, but then I kind of stumbled into some adult books accidentally when I agreed to review them for blog tours. (Yeah, I know – that sounds really strange, but that’s really how it happened!) I found that I wasn’t as opposed to explicit sex in my books as I thought. But I’m still not a fan of books that are actually about sex. I want there to be a great plot and for the sex to be on the sidelines. So, I don’t think I’ll ever venture over to Fifty Shades of Grey territory.
When I was a teenager (I’m pretty sure I was a teenager – maybe even a little younger?), I watched the movie of A Clockwork Orange. My dad was all about how deep and politically meaningful it was. I just thought it was weird and gross. And very disturbing. I don’t remember any specifics (thank goodness), but I just have a general feeling of disgust when I think about this book or the movie.
So, what books will you never read?
