Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'm Not Sure I Want To Read

 Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish

Here are my top ten books I've considered reading, I'm not sure I want to anymore. It's basically the age old question of "to read or not to read".  If you have any insight, let me know!

 1. Unraveled by Gennifer Albin
I've read the first two books and the last book comes out in October.  I feel VERY ambivalent about this series.  I'm so close to finishing, but I'm not sure I'm that interested in how it ends.
Unraveled (Crewel World, #3)

 2. Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan
This is another series ender in a series that I'm not too invested in.
Unmade (The Lynburn Legacy, #3)

3. The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
I've heard both good and bad reviews.  I read This is What Happiness Looks Like and was very underwhelmed.  Now I'm a little less enthusiastic about this one.
The Geography of You and Me

4. The Taker by Alma Katsu
I'm not even sure when I put this on my TBR list, but every time I think about reading it, I find something else to read instead.  Maybe that's a hint that I'm just not that into it?
The Taker (The Taker, #1)  

 5. The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano
I heard good things about the first book, decent things about the second, but not so good things about the final book. I'm not sure I want to read a whole series if the payoff isn't worth it.
Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)

6. Falling Kingdoms by Lauren DeStefano
Series that I feel ambivalent about are the bane of my existence.  I always end up reading the next book hoping that things get better.  But it doesn't usually happen.  This is a second book I could totally see myself getting sucked into hoping that things get more interesting.
Burning Kingdoms (Internment Chronicles, #2)

7. The Clann series by Melissa Darnell
I'm so wary of paranormal YA now...and even though this has fairly good reviews...I dunno...
Crave (The Clann, #1)

8. White Space by Ilsa J. Bick
It's 560 pages and only has a 3.08 rating on Goodreads.  But the premise sounds interesting and I have a copy for review.
White Space (Dark Passages, #1)

9. Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The first book was interesting enough, but was it interesting enough to read the sequel?
Killer Instinct (The Naturals, #2)

10. Katerina series by Robin Bridges
I like the Russian setting, but the reviews haven't been very good. 
The Gathering Storm (Katerina, #1)



  1. I loved Wither.The series is one of my top ten series in YA. You should definitely give it a chance.

  2. Oh, WHITE SPACE is one of my faves this year! You definitely have to be open to the weirdness but I adored it!

    THE TAKER on the other hand is one I abandoned way back there and finally got rid of. I wanted to like it - everyone seems to - I just wasn't into it.

  3. I read and loved Wither but I was not that into Fever. I still haven't read the last book and honestly can't even recall its name. I read and loved The Taker but for some reason I have not read the second one yet.

  4. I have not read any books in the series that you have mentioned but I understand your feelings about why you hesitate to pick up the story or the sequel. Pretty blog.

  5. The Gathering Storm made it on my list, too. I, like you, was intrigued by the setting, but the last part of the blurb made me start doubting wether it would be as good as it promised to be.

  6. White space sounds amazing, but don't let it trap you :p It was SO confusing and weird.. I had to stop after a couple of pages, because I seriously had no idea what was going on and I had no intentions to find out.
