This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are supposed to talk about Favorite Books From Our Favorite Genre. However, since I already talked a lot about my favorite books and didn’t read that many fantastic books this year, I’ve decided to bring you the list of 10 books from my favorite genres that I’m not interested in.
Take a look at my thought process for this week’s TTT topic:
- 10 Books from My Favorite Genre – “But I don’t have just one favorite genre! Let’s change it to Genre(S).”
- 10 FAVORITE Books from My Favorite Genres – “Hmm, I talked about my favorite books a lot recently. Maybe I could talk about the books I didn’t like or DNFed”
- 10 Books I DNFED from My Favorite Genres – “I didn’t DNF enough books. Something to work on this year.”
- 10 Books From My Favorite Genres I haven’t read yet – “This could work.”
- 10 Books From My Favorite Genres I’m not interested in – “This is the one!”
No matter how much I love a particular genre, there are always books I’m not interested in for various reasons – maybe I’m not a fan of the author’s writing style, or the blurb doesn’t sound particularly interesting, or maybe I just don’t like the cover (also happens).
These are the books in my favorite genres that don’t appeal to me at all. If you love any of the books listed below, let me know in the comments below!
As much as I love fantasy books, video games and movies, I was never a fan of The Lord of the Rings movies. But it’s the only books of these four that has a chance to be on my TBR sometime in the future.
I first joined the Saga train two years ago, immediately purchasing the first 3 volumes. I still haven’t read the 3rd one and it’s been over two years now. There is a chance I’ll read it for some read-a-thon or when I’m in the mood for quick sci-fi, but I lost interest in the story and won’t be continuing it.
Paulo Coelho was one of my favorite authors when I was a teen. I had this whole phase of reading every single book by Paulo Coelho I could find! «11 Minutes» was my favorite and the one I re-read multiple times. His books are very… influential, especially because I read them so young, I felt as if he was implanting his ideas in the readers’ minds. My obsession with his books are long gone, and I won’t be reading any more of his books.
«The Girl on the Train» by Paula Hawkins was my 2016 x-mas present and I read it in one sitting few days after Christmas! I loved how dark and atmospheric it was, so of course «Into the Water» was a highly anticipated book. But as the time went, I started to lose interest in the story. However, I don’t deny the possibility to be excited to read it again one day.
