This is actually my first time participating in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish (a blog title I love, btw.) Until I figure out how to do links- which will be soon- ya’ll are going to have to settle for a written URL.
As for my top ten books I’ll never read, in no particular order this time, they are:
1) lol and other modern devised plays
I don’t even know why this one is on my TBR at all. I think I added it when I first joined goodreads and was just looking for something to put on my shelf. (If only I’d known I’d be a blogger!) That being said, I have absolutely no interest in it at all.
2) The Devil Wears Prada
Saw the movie. Loved the movie. But my taste in movies and my taste in books are completely different. That being said, this one is probably never going to make it to my “read” shelf.
3) The Mistborn Trilogy
This one was a recommendation from back in the day where being noticed and recommended something was a big deal to me. More likely, it was an author trying to sell their crud. Haha. Oops.
4) Remnants of the Damned
I met the author of this one through last year’s Armchair BEA. I added it to my TBR- and planned to read it- to be nice, but it’s not my style at all. Saying I’ll read it and not reading it is the way of a busy reader. Saying I’ll read it and trashing it in a review just because it’s not my thing is cruel.
5) Sixth Grave on the Edge
Is this…? It is! A SIXTH in series? Ain’t nobody got the time to read five books because they’re interested in the SIXTH. Why is this even on my TBR at all? The first sure isn’t.
6) Tip of the Tongue
I love Dr. Who. I love Patrick Ness. You’d think this win-win combination would be a completely glorious thing for me, right? Maybe. But I’m not sure anyone but the author of Dr. Who could really capture Dr. Who, and in book form? I don’t know. However, this is the only one that’s going to be staying on my TBR after this post. Just in case..
7) Waiting for You
8) Addicted to You
9) Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms
These three are all together because they’re on here for the same reason. They’re all from bloggers I love that gave them a great rating. But all because those bloggers loved them doesn’t mean I will. I’ve since learned to find bloggers with similar books to mine when I add their books to my TBR.
I loved Wonder. The Julian chapter was ok. At first I adored R.J. Palacio writing different viewpoints on the story of Auggie. But after a while it starts to feel a little milky. The story was great, but it’s over. I’m happy with leaving it like that.
So, what are your Top Tens for this week? Leave a comment and I’ll check them out.
