Top Ten Tuesday

This is my first time participating in this meme.  I've seen it around and never had a chance to participate.  It's hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  My first one happens to be a difficult one to answer, but here it goes...

What are the top ten books you will probably never read?

1.  Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse and Breaking Dawn - I read the first two books in the Twilight series and they really didn't grab me like it did everyone else.  So, I seriously doubt I'll be finishing this series.

2.  E.L. James' books from the Fifty Shades series (after #1) - I read the first one and had trouble finishing it (although I did read the whole thing) and am not interested in reading anymore.

3.  Political memoirs - Boring to me!

4.  Classics - I always say I'm going to read the classics, but I never have time for them.  I'm more of a modern day reader.  (Although Jane Austen still has a chance to be read by me.)

5.  Harry Potter Series - No interest in this series at all.

6.  Historicals - I keep saying I'm going to read an historical romance, but I never have time.  Like I said above, I'm more of a modern day reader and prefer the contemporaries.

7.  Young Adult - I've read a couple and they are "ok", but it's not really a genre that interests me very much.

8.  Biographies - Unless they are an auto-biography of a celebrity I like, I don't bother with biographies.

9.  The Walking Dead books - I absolutely love the series, but prefer not to read it.

10.  Outlander series - Now, this is a difficult one because I really, really want to read these books.  It's all about lack of time for me because these books are just so long.  I prefer books in the 250-350 page range and these books are in the 1000+ range.  It will take me forever to read them.

Okay, that's what I came up with for now.  What's on your list?


  1. I enjoyed your honest post, Yvonne! I am not sure which books would be on my own list. Hmm...

  2. I am not much into reading classics either. I actually did finish the Twilight series but I really can't remember much about them. I love Harry Potter but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea.

  3. I also don't plan on reading Harry Potter. I watched all the movies. but don't if the books are worth the time.

  4. There are several things on your list that could appear on mine (if I had made it this week) too. However, I am a Harry fan. I've read Outlander twice and then just have never taken the time to move on in the series. Maybe on audio. :-)

  5. Hear you on 50, never gonna happen

  6. I'm happy to see you here this week for the first time at Top Ten! I agree with your list...good job.

  7. I'm with you on Outlander. People keep telling me I need to read it and so many people love it but if I'm being really honest I don't really see myself picking it up anytime soon. I feel the same way as you about the rest of the 50 Shades trilogy and YA in general!
