Top 10 To Read or Not to Read

Top Ten Books I'm Not Sure I Want To Read
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

This was kind of hard.  I'll read just about anything.  I could easily fill this list with classics, but that didn't feel right.  Not quite what was intended.  So I dug deep, and maybe pulled off a lot of the books that have been on my Goodreads to-read list for, like, forever. :)

What's on your list?

1) Insurgent / Allegiant by Veronica Roth
 I'm good.  Plus everything has already been spoiled for me.

2) Graceling by Kristin Cashore
 The thing is, I will read this one.  One day.  Hopefully.  But it is my kryptonite,
and despite all of the great reviews I've come across, I just can't seem to finish it.

3) Crank by Ellen Hopkins
I tend not to gravitate toward books that seem too real.

4) A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer
See #3.  I see this on the news every day.  I don't really want to read about it as well,
even if at least fifty teens have begged me to read it.

5) Delirium by Lauren Oliver
 I'm getting pretty darn picky about my dystopias these days. 
They are starting to wear thin...like vampires and werewolves.  This one can wait.

6)  Anything by Jodi Picoult
See #3 and #4.

7) Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
Because I wasn't a fan of the first one and have no desire to continue.

 8) Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar
I respectfully decline.

9) Eldest / Brisingr / Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
So...yeah, I'm good.

10)  Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Okay.  I had to throw one classic in the mix.  It's soooo long!

And the print is sooo small!  And I've seen the movie, so I feel like I get the gist.

Happy reading!


  1. Ugh, I have never had any desire to read A CHILD CALLED IT. I will never read that. I'm with you on Jodi Piccoult as well.

    1. I have come to terms that there are just some books I don't need to experience. Especially if they are going to give me nightmares.

  2. I'm with you on the rest of the Divergent series. I was pretty meh about book one. Glad I'm not the only one!

    1. I've been feeling pretty lonely on the Divergent front for awhile now. Safety in numbers! Did you see the movie?
