Popular Books I’ll (probably) NEVER Read

Hey guys!
Welcome back or if you’re new welcome to my blog!
Today I’m going to tell you some books I literally do not give a damn about what so ever, therefore, won’t be reading them.

*Warning: Unpopular opinions ahead*

1) ANYTHING Cassandra Clare

None of her books sound interesting to me. I’ve heard her stuff and she, in general, are problematic. So, I really don’t care enough to read her stuff.

2) ANYTHING John Green

I am no contemporary lover but there are a few I like and I am willing to reading it. However, John Green’s books have no appeal to me. From everything I’ve heard about them, they’re overhyped and just not my thing at all.

3) Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

I have zero desire to read the Harry Potter books. They literally have no appeal to me. I didn’t read them as a child, they have no nostalgia for me. It’s too late for me. I don’t even like the films, I barely made it through the first film. I was bored to tears. I thought it was really crap. So it’s safe to say I will never be reading these books.

4) The Book Thief by Markus ZusackImage result for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I’m really not a fan of historical fiction in general but WW2 especially. It’s quite possibly my least favourite time period ever. I have no idea why I dislike it so much. I learnt so much about WW1+2 in school that I don’t want to keep hearing about it. Don’t get me wrong; I know it’s a really important time but I find it so boring. Everyone loves this book but I just can’t bring myself to suffer through it.

5) Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I realised I really hate anything circus related. I hated The Night Circus and other books with circusy things. From reviews from bloggers/booktubers I trust it just doesn’t sound good to me. I’ll give it a pass.

What’s a popular book you’ll never read?

  1. Ahh… this is literally my exact reasoning for never wanting to read The Book Thief too!!

    I still remember picking it up to look at in the book store after hearing SO many rave reviews, and putting it back down immediately after reading the “It is 1939. Nazi Germany”.

    did that time period to death in school, so just can’t bring myself to read anything set then

  2. I really enjoyed Looking for Alaska when I was a teen, but I’ve been mostly “meh” about the rest of his books. I think the problem is that once you read one Green book, you’ve pretty much. They all kind of blend together!

    Books 2 and 3 in the Shade of Magic are probably ones I won’t read. I’m just not the biggest fan of Schwab’s writing style. πŸ˜›

  3. Interesting list! I don’t think I will be reading anything Cassandra Clare or Sarah J Maas. I’ve read the first book in one of each of their series and really didn’t like either of them, plus I don’t like that Cassandra Clare basically started her career by riding JK Rowling’s coattails.

      1. Cassandra Clare started The City Of Bones series off of JK Rowlings coattails, it was originally fan fiction and you can totally tell while reading it. It just feels like plagiarism to me. When I read the first one I was like “wow this feels so much like Harry Potter” and I didn’t even know it had started as fan fiction. I can’t respect that. Keep it fan fiction, but to make a whole series off of it and make a boatload of money off of it without giving JK Rowling any credit? I feel like that’s super dishonest and I can’t respect it.

  4. I get were you are coming from. I have recently bought The fault in our stars. And I bought and read Me before you by Jojo Moyes to see what all the fuss was about and tbh even though yes it is a sad story I thought it was to hyped.

  5. Great Post! I read The Fault in our stars a few years ago and I was bored to tears, ever since I have tried reading other John Green books but without any success.
    I abandoned The Mortal instruments mid way but I enjoyed The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.
