Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m no longer going to read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

February 20: Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

There have been quite a few books that I’ve recently decided not to read after having had them on my shelf or TBR for a while. I’m sure most of these are good books, but the hype has died down and the plot doesn’t intrigue me, so I’ve just lost interest in reading them.

There’s a chance I may still pick these books up in the future, but for now I’m striking them off my TBR, as I’m just not intrigued by them anymore, and I have so many other books to read.

Which books have you lost interest in reading? Are there any that you’ve recently unhauled?

Until next time 2

  1. I am not quite ready to abandon Heartless entirely, but I struggled for sure when I started it last year and then just put it on hold. So, I can definitely see why it’s on this list.

    1. I’ve seen other people say they struggled to get into it too, so you’re definitely not the only one, and I think my own lack of excitement for it coupled with people’s mixed reviews is what’s made me take it off my TBR and add it to this list! 😉

  2. I haven’t read any of these tbh so not sure if I should try and convince you to read or not 😀 I’m sure they’ll still stick around – never say never.
    Lynn 😀

    1. Ah, that’s good to hear you liked it! I definitely didn’t want this to be a list of ‘books I don’t think are any good and therefore am not going to read anymore’, but instead a list of books that I’ve just lost a bit of excitement and hype for. I may still end up reading them one day, but for now they’re coming off my TBR!

  3. Nice post. I really enjoyed reading Heartless and Furthermore! A book I lost interest in is Daughter of a Burning City and Flame in the Mist, I received them both in Fairyloot boxes, but I don’t feel like reading them, haha (although I really want to)

    1. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed them, as I definitely don’t think they’re bad books, but I just can’t see myself picking them up in the next year or so. I read Daughter of the Burning City and gave it 4/5 stars; it was a good murder mystery, but it didn’t amaze me and I found the narrative style too simple at times. I think Flame in the Mist is still on my TBR, but that might be another one I decide to remove 😉

  4. Heartless made it onto my list as well this week. I loved the Lunar Chronicles but I’m just not drawn to Heartless. Maybe someday, but for now the book is permanently on hold.

    1. Surprisingly, I was kind of indifferent to the first book in the Lunar Chronicles series, so I didn’t continue with it, and I think that’s part of the reason why I’m just not fussed about Heartless anymore. I’m usually interested in retellings, but the hype train has passed on this one for me. 😉
