I saw this book tag over at http://gregsbookhaven.blogspot.com/ and figured it was a nice short one to do today!
A Really Hyped Book You Are Not Interested In Reading
Most of the books I read aren't in the popular genres that are usually really hyped so the answer here is a lot! I'm going with books I've seen on a lot of blogs that are in genres I do read but just don't excite me to read them.
I was one of the few that didn't greatly enjoy reading The Shining when I read it years ago so I'm not greatly keen on reading a sequel. I've only liked a few Dean Koontz books and the blurb and reviews for this just didn't interests me. Thirdly I didn't like the previous offerings I read by Patrick Ness so I'm not keen to read more by him.
A Series You Won't Start/Won't Be Finishing
Oh dear, there are a ton of series I've quit or never picked up in the first place! Six of Crows sounded so great but I found it really dull and quit when after 100 pages, there was still no sign of even planning the heist, which is what I wanted to read about! I really enjoyed the first two Ada Adams books and was waiting for the third. That was 2014. Four years later no sign of book three, the author's website has vanished and Twitter account has been suspended. Not happy about the massive unanswered cliffhanger! Anyone who has followed me for a while knows that I stuck with LKH longer than I should have and I abandoned the series after not enjoying most of the books between 7 and 14 in the series!
A Classic That You Are Just Not Interested In
I don't read classics. They just don't interest me at all.
Any Genres You Have Never Read
I've tried most genres a few times other than erotica and westerns which I avoid. I'm not a fan of classics, romance, contemporary (except good thrillers), books for young kids, manga and graphic novels.
A Book On Your Shelves You Will Probably Never Actually Read
There are a lot that I worry I will never get round to reading! Time is such an issue along with the constant book buying! These are three that I'm less likely to get to as many others are higher priority.
The Ann Rule books on Ted Bundy and The Green River Killer are such big non fictions books that they scare me and reviews I've seen recently are somewhat mixed which has dampened my enthusiasm a bit. I got the Stephen King one free but to be honest I haven't really enjoyed most of his offerings in recent years. I do sort of intend to read it (I hope) but it is way down the priority list! As for A Dream of Spring, I fear the book will never happen!
