BOOKS I’LL (PROBABLY) NEVER READ BOOK TAG!

booktags_2018feature

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a book tag talking about the books that I’ll (probably) never read!  I don’t really talk about these often on my blog because I prefer to talk more positively about the books I’m looking forward to but since this is a short tag with interesting questions, I thought I would give it a shot!

1) A  REALLY HYPED BOOK YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN READING?

Related image

This series is finally over so I feel like I can finally say, I don’t want to read this series. I read book 1 and was not a fan and I have heard very few good things about the rest of the series since, so I’ll pass on this series and probably the author too just because her other books don’t interest me either.

2) A SERIES YOU WON’T START/ WON’T BE FINISHING?

Captive Prince (Captive Prince, #1)

I haven’t started this series and I honestly doubt I ever will. I know some people love this and others hate it but from what I’ve heard in the negative reviews this book is super rapey and I kinda feel like if this was a hetero couple and not m/m, people would have “cancelled” this series immediately.

3) A CLASSIC THAT YOU’RE JUST NOT INTERESTED IN?

Les Misérables

I am not now and never have been interested in Les Mis, I’m sorry if you’re a die hard fan but I have no idea what it’s about and I have zero interest in it.

4) ANY GENRES YOU NEVER READ?

Is erotica a genre? if so, that would be the genre I tend to avoid.

5) A BOOK ON YOUR SHELVES YOU’LL PROBABLY NEVER ACTUALLY READ?

Little Women

I used to think for so long that the answer to this would be The Lord of The Rings but I have every intention of reading that series this year so really I’m not sure what my answer is, but I know that I don’t plan on reading my copy of Little Women for years unless I have to read it for a class.

    1. I have heard such mixed reviews for the series as a whole so I’m keeping it on the backburner for now, but maybe I’ll give it a chance in a few years. I hope you enjoy the tag!

  1. Thank you for the tag! This one is fun, I think I’ll do it this week. 🙂

    As far as your answers, TOG gets 200% better after book 1, and improves even more after book 2, but I know the series isn’t for everyone! If you ever do decide to try it again, though, her writing just improved so much after the first one (she wrote book 1 when she was 16!).

    Captive Prince… It’s not for everyone but, if I had to pick just ONE favorite series in life, I think it might be that one. The problem that I’ve seen in a lot of the negative reviews surrounding it is that, frankly, a lot of people think that *triggering* books are automatically *problematic* and that’s not the case at all. Yes, there is rape in the first book, but it’s HUGELY vilified and acknowledged. If you don’t want to read those triggers or a book that is sexually explicit, I would stay away from it, but I wanted to offer another perspective on some of those reviews because I have watched people literally outright LIE in their reviews and say things happened that didn’t even happen, at all. 😐 Sorry for the novel, but I had to say that. 😂

    1. It is a pretty fun tag, it got me thinking about the books that I don’t really talk about very often which was a nice change!

      Yeah, I’ve heard book 2 is a definite improvement but honestly, I think at this point I’ve heard too many bad things about the series for me to want to pick it up. I think I also have too many other series on my tbr, but you never know!

      Wow, okay if it’s your favourite I might have to give it a try next time I see book 1 at the library. I just see all those scary reviews and it really puts me off but if you say they’re not as problematic as the reviews are saying I’ll hopefully try and give it a shot one day and I’ll definitely check out the triggers before starting it!
      Thank you for offering your opinion, it’s always good to hear different opinions! Haha, no problem and thank you for your “novel” response, I’m glad you told me because I really had no idea and now there’s a legit chance that I might read it!

    1. I’ve heard that the series gets better too, but honestly, I’ve heard far too many bad things about the books and the author herself so I think I’ll stay away for now! I know her ACOTAR series a lot more popular, why did you dislike it?

    1. Little Women is just another classic that I’ve heard of but don’t know anything about. I’ll probably watch an adaptation at some point but unless I have to read it for class I doubt I’ll ever pick it up!

  2. Just reading the final Throne of Glass book, loving it so far but boy I cant even remember what happened in the other books as I read them so long ago! I’m not super keen on reading the two ‘novellas.’

    Also totally get you with Captive Prince. The first book made me so uncomfortable in some places with the power dynamic, it did get better and was less graphic as the series went on.
