Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Will Probably Never Read

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

Top Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
Nope nope nope nope.

The Catcher in the Rye
Nothing about this sounds remotely interesting to me.

War and Peace
The likelihood of me actually ever reading this is incredibly slim. Between the massiveness of and the subject matter, I'm pretty sure I won't get it. 

A Clockwork Orange
Again, the subject matter is not something that interests me at all...classic or no.

Eat, Pray, Love
Again, a very popular book.  But I don't have an interest in a woman's "self-discovery".  These types of books are just not for me.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
I'm sure this book is amazing, but I'm not sure I can handle the material.  I think it would upset me too much.

Looking for Alaska
One John Green book was enough for me.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)
After the many reviews I've read...yeah, no.

 The Plague Dogs
Love Watership Down, but this book sounds horrifying.

Summer of the Monkeys
I picked this purely because I do not like monkeys.  Also, this cover annoys me because that is a chimpanzee, which is not a monkey.  I also do not like chimpanzees.



  1. Okay, your comments about the last one just made me laugh!! :-)

  2. Hahahaha your reasoning for Summer of the Monkeys is highly entertaining! I had to read it in 5th grade and I don't remember being particularly enamored. It's one of those boring boy coming of age classics you have to read a lot of as a younger kid. And I'm TOTALLY with you on Catcher in the Rye. Not happening. Yegh.

  3. Haha! Your reasoning for the last one is hilarious. I agree about your Eat, Pray, Love reason. Self-discovery books aren't always horrible, but I listened to about 1/3 of EPL and wanted to slap Elizabeth Gilbert. It was more "self-absorbed" than anything else.
