Hello people! I hope you are doing great! Today I am here with a book tag! Jess @Jessticulates tagged me and so here we are! The tag was created by Nicole and Her Books and now that I gave all the credits where they were due, let’s start!
A popular book EVERYONE loves that you have no interest in reading?
It seems like everybody loved this one! I have read so many interesting things and review about it, and yet… yet I don’t think I would ever read it. It doesn’t really seem like the right one for me. Sadly!
A classic book (or author) you don’t have any interest in reading?
I received a copy of this book a lifetime ago. It was a Christmas present. And I have started it so many time! But I didn’t get over the first 50 pages (in the best of cases) so… yep, this one. I have abandoned all hope to ever read it!
An author whose books you have no interest in reading?
I know I am putting my life on the stake saying so but… Martin. I have tried but… nope. And I know I am cheating a bit here, because I have read something by him before, but I tried to think about authors I haven’t tried but that I don’t want to read, and I came out empty!
A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading?
Hmm… I am not an expert in problematic authors and the ones I know of are the ones I have also read (and the first on the list would be Tolstoy. And I know I am one of the few to consider him problematic but… don’t get me started on him!!!!!) so I would copy Jess answer here, and go with Orson Scott Card. I haven’t read anything by him, and so far I am not planning to.
An author you have read a couple of books from and have decided their books are not for you?
I think that Maas is a marvelous storyteller, but she really doesn’t know what to do with her characters. And the worst thing is that her characters are good! But… nope, just nope. On one hand I really enjoyed the books I have read by her (I think I have read 4 or 5) but on the other, they made me so mad!!! And I had to say no more, because they were just too maddening for my peace of mind.
A genre you have no interest in OR a genre you tried to get into and couldn’t?
Horror. I tried. A lot. But it is not for me. I enjoy horror short stories (Lovecraft, Poe and Le Fanu are some favorites of mine) but the novels? Nope. They bore me so much! And I have tried! I have tried some books that were just so promising, with brilliant plot and twists and yet… all I felt from them was boredom.
A book you have bought but will never read? (this can be a book you have unhauled/returned to the library unread)
Sorry but for this one I haven’t an answer!!!!
A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started and have dnf’d?
I wrote an entire post about this topic, here, but it seems like I let out a series, so here we are! I loved the first book, but this second… nope! I was just soooo bored! And so I have to say goodbye to this one, too!
A new release you have no interest in reading?
The cover is a piece of art, but I think I am growing tired of this kind of books. And so I think I would let this one pass, even if I am a bit curious about it!
This was all for today, I hope you enjoyed this tag! If you want to try your hand at this tag please do! Consider yourselves tagged!
