Hello, my fellow book lovers! Today, I’m going to talk about five book series I have no intention of reading. I know, I know, never say never…. but I’ll probably never pick these up!
I’ll only discuss five series, so obviously won’t be able to include all the series in the world I don’t want to read, such as Fifty Shades of Grey. Furthermore, I’m not going to discuss series I don’t want to continue, such as Throne of Glass and The Mortal Instruments.
These are in no particular.
The Selection series was very popular when I first joined the book community. The plot never appealed to me – I’m not a big fan of books that are allocishet romance-driven – but I wanted to give them a chance because I liked the covers. I never actually bought these books, however, and I definitely don’t plan to anymore.
I joined the book community around the time the Divergent movie adaptation was released. I watched the film, but I didn’t find it interesting enough to continue watching them or to pick up the book series. This genre doesn’t really appeal to me, except for The Hunger Games, which I do want to re-read and re-watch (again!).
I’ve mentioned this a few times already: I don’t plan on reading any of Clare’s books. I got rid of the entire Mortal Instruments series and a few of her other books a couple of months ago and I haven’t regretted it once. I read City of Bones and half of the sequel, but I wasn’t enjoying it. Furthermore, all of her books are set in the same universe, so I’d feel forced to read them all. I know many readers are a fan of her work, but I don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything.Tolkien’s work is the biggest maybe on this list. I’ve watched The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies a few times, but I can’t say I’m exactly a Tolkien-fan. Therefore, I don’t plan on reading these books. In a few years, I might feel differently, but for the time being, I’m much more interested in other fantasy novels. I prefer political intrigue and that’s probably what’s missing for me in his work.
When I was a teenager, the Twilight books and especially films were so popular. At first I was into the films, but after a while, I couldn’t even be bothered to watch them all. I think I skipped the last one or two. Anyway, there’s nothing about Twilight that seems appealing to me. Once again, this one is very allocishet romance-driven and I don’t tend to enjoy such books.
What are some series you don’t ever plan on reading?
