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

35504431 11870085

Honestly, I don’t see the hype and appeal of John Green’s books. I wish I did! I feel somewhat left out…but I just have no desire to read them whatsoever.


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

17675462 17347389 17378508 17378527

Guys…I REALLY wanted to like this series…it’s like I’m the ONLY person who doesn’t enjoy Maggie’s writing style. One of my favourite bloggers (Inside My Library Mind … you know what I’m talking about ha-ha) LOVES this series…so I wanted to share the joy…but it’s not there…WALK OF SHAME!


A CLASSIC THAT YOU’RE JUST NOT INTERESTED IN?

22044026

A few of my friends really enjoyed this book…but the concept sounds just like WAY too much emotionally and it seems pretty freakin’ messed up…like, too messed up ha-ha! I like dark literature, don’t get me wrong…but this stuff is just TOO much.


ANY GENRES YOU’VE NEVER READ?

I used to think there was certain genres I would never read…but becoming part of the book blogging community made me realize that’s completely and utterly false ha-ha! I tend to avoid psychological thrillers and gore…but I can’t say I won’t read it.


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

I REALLY want to read this…but there’s just a large part of me that thinks I will never actually get to it…we shall see. If anyone has read this, what did you think?

  1. Why did you hurt me like this 😭😭😭 Kidding, I can totally understand not liking Maggie Stiefvater’s writing style (although you must have loved Ronan? Give me that at least). I read every John Green book and they are really overrated. Also, Brave New World – meh. So you’re not missing out! I loved your answers (except that one about TRC, but it’s fine, we’re still friends 😂)

    1. NO SAD FACES!! I LOVE Ronan! Ronan and Noah are the main reasons I desperately tried to get into the second book…but I couldn’t do it…it’s just her writing style #frustrated . YAY TO STILL BEING FRIENDS!! #bookbloggerbesties 😉 I’ve heard a few of my friends say that John Green is overrated…so I’m glad to know that’s a popular opinion ha-ha!

  2. I don’t like Maggie’s writing either. I tried to read Shiver and DNF’d it. I read the Raven Boys as well but I thought the book was just meh. I wanted to like it as well but I just can’t do it. ):

  3. Ooooh I love your answer, Jenna!! I agree so much with so many of your answers. The John Green appeal skipped me, too. They just seem so…droll? But I’m a bit worried The Raven Boys love will skip over me too. And I’m so with you on Dracula!! 🙂 Wonderful post, Jenna, and I can’t wait to do this one…although apparently it might just be the same answers, lol!! 🙂

  4. I’m right there with you on the John Greene books! The covers look cute and the hype is real, but I don’t think I’ll ever make the time for them.

  5. Of course there are those books that are so famous and hyped but you never have the interest in reading… One particular classic I was never pulled to read was Les Miserables. I really enjoyed the movie but I don’t think I’ll be able to read the huge brick that the novel is.

  6. My friend said the same thing about John Green’s books! But I still want to try his latest book. I also didn’t like The Raven Boys series so don’t worry, you’re not the only one! 🙂

    1. I would definitely give John Green a go! I know a few of my friends LOVE his novels, so I’m sure they’re great. And I feel as though there are more people than I originally thought in the world who don’t like this series haha! I know it has a huge fanbase…and I wanted to be a part of it 😢

  7. Oh man! This is such a cool tag!! I totally agree with the John Greene books. Just not up for that. It’s always some sob story! Isn’t life depressing enough? Heartwrenchers. I’ve never read any Nicolas Sparks either, but at least I’ve considered his stuff. XD I’ve never heard of The Raven Boys or that author before. I’m also not a huge vampire fan, so though Dracula is classic and I want to read it for that reason, part of me is like “I have better books to spend my time on” XD Hahaha.

    1. Lmfao! I concur…though I occasionally enjoy a heartwrencher or two…when it’s still a happy ending of course! I’ve read one Nicholas Sparks book and it was actually pretty good. The Raven Boys is pretty popular in YA literature. I loved supernatural and paranormal books…but I’m not sure I’m up for the task with Dracula haha!

  8. I loved Dracula! I thought I love TFIOS too but I realized when I reread the book that I was probably swept up in the hype at that time. And when I read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, I realized how pale John’s writing is compared to David Levithan 😬 I love him as a person but I have to admit, his books are not for me.

  9. Catching up on your lovely blog… This may be an unpopular answer but I just don’t think I will ever read The Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings Books (gasp)! I think it’s good to be able to admit that the writing style is not for me and I’ve never been into high fantasy type books with loads of characters and details to remember… just not my thing, I lose interest too quickly and find it hard to relate to!

    1. John Green just doesn’t peak my interests whatsoever. And TRB…I WANTED TO LOVE IT SO BAD! What sucks is I actually love the story concept and a lot of the characters…but the writing…it’s just too different for my tastes. I’m glad people do enjoy the books though.
