Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that other bloggers are welcome to join in, to create Top Ten lists on varying topics. This week it’s Top Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read .
by Scott Westerfeld
The premise of this book makes it sound like she needs to betray her friend to become pretty and that’s just not something I feel I could read without getting angry, both for the possible betrayal but also for the ‘becoming pretty’ bit too – we already have the media telling us we’re not pretty enough, I don’t need a book telling me the same thing.
by Hilary Mantel
I picked this up at a charity event. I like history and I like novels but I really don’t like history novels, I have no idea why I even bought it. Has anyone read this? What is it like?
by Lauren Oliver
I also picked this up at a charity event, mainly because I’m a fan of some of her work and thought I’d try her adult novel. I’m not sure it’s the type of thing that I’ll read with so many other more interesting books around, especially with my new 3-year rule!
by Josie Lloyd, Emlyn Rees
I’m not even sure where this book has come from, it’s the sort of book that saddens me even thinking about it, seperated for 15 years then getting together again and disrupting those in their lives? I really don’t think I’ll be reading it.

I was given a set of the Game of Thrones set (1-4) and I also have 1 and 2 on my kindle and yet… I feel like as much as I like the idea of reading the books, the likelihood is I will never get round to read these. Still I will stay optimistic and keep the books on my shelf.

I like to use this for reference every now and then, and flick through the pictures… however I doubt I will ever sit and read the whole thing.

This is book two of Darkest Powers. I read The Summoning (#1) back in 2012 and have The Awakening on the shelf but I can hardly remember what book one was about only a vague notion of it being a little disappointing.
Perhaps someone could let me know whether its worth continuing or whether I should just relegate this to the charity box?

I was really excited when I received World Walker book #1 – Trial by Fire. I had high hope! But the reality was quite the opposite.
I found the characters sooo annoying and the plot rather dull. I will not be continuing this series so can say with confidence that I will never read Fire Walker.
by Lauren DeStefano
I own this one too. But after re-reading the blurb, I can’t remember why I bought it.
Perhaps someone who’s read it could let me know whether its worth reading.
