Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read! I’ve chosen to focus on the books I’ve bought but I’m not sure I want to read, for whatever reason. Anyhoo, in no particular order here’s my list 🙂
11.22.63 by Stephen King
I bought this around the time it came out, with all the good hype around it. I started to read it and I couldn’t get into it. Not sure if I’ll give it another go…
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Another one I rushed to buy when it was released, but I’ve heard some mixed reviews. I think I’m just scared of other books by JKR for fear they won’t live up to HP.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith
I have no idea what possessed me to buy this! I tried to read it and it was too ridiculous for me, I’m not sure I’ll be giving it another shot…
Little Vampire Women by Louisa May Alcott & Lynn Messina
See above reasons for P&P & Zombies…
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
I know this is an Aussie classic but I just couldn’t get into it when I tried to read it. I have a feeling that this will sit on my shelf unread for a long time!
The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
I went through a phase of buying really random obscure books, and this is one of them. I doubt I’ll read it now though…
The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel
I was really keen to read this, bought it, and then read a bunch of poor reviews! What to do?
The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
These were a gift when I was younger and I tried to read them but I never made it through the first one. Part of me really wants to read this and part of me isn’t sure.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I’ve started this one a few months ago and then people kept telling me how horrible the characters were! I put it down and haven’t been able to pick it back up again.
Tampa by Alissa Nutting
I won this in a giveaway and I really want to read it because it’s so different to what I usually read. On that other hand, that’s exactly why I’m not sure if I do want to read it!
There you have it, that’s my list! How about you, what did you have on your list? Are there any on my list I should definitely read?
