Months ago I was tagged in the Books I’ll Probably Never Read Tag and I’m just getting around to answering these questions now…. better late than never, right? I’m glad this tag already has the word “probably” in its title so I don’t have to add it–I always like to keep my reading options open! Thanks so much to Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf for tagging me!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. This series is talked about so often in here in the book blogging world, but I’ve never had an interest in reading it for some reason. I think a huge amount of hype can be off-putting sometimes, especially when it comes to a series as long as this one.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. At one point years ago I considered starting this series, but now that so much time has passed I’ve pretty much lost all interest. I’ve heard some mixed things about it, so I’m not sure it’s worth starting now when there are so many other series that I’m much more excited to read.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time then you’ve probably noticed that classic literature is one of my favorite genres. It’s hard to pick a classic that I’m not interested in reading at all, but I think I’m going to have to go with The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (I know, I’m a horrible English major). I had to read some of it for an English class in high school and it was enough to make me realize that I’m just not that interested in medieval literature.
Any Genres You’ve Never Read?
Interesting question! I’ve never really thought about this before, but now that you mention it I’ve never read anything in the New Adult genre… at least, I don’t think I have. To be honest, I’m not really sure what the New Adult genre entails. (Explanations in the comments would be most welcome!)
Many, unfortunately (I have a bad habit of picking up books at used book sales because they’re such a great bargain…). One that comes to mind is A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain. Not only is it pretty lengthy (nearly five hundred pages) but I also feel like I’ve just lost interest in the story.
