Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds. =) We're game.
This week's topic is the Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read:April's Picks:
In all of my honors and AP classes, The Great Gatsby was never prescribed as required reading, and when I was reading for leisure, it was usually Jane Austen I was picking up. I've seen the movie, and that's enough for me. =) The same is kind of true for Frankenstein, though I've read quite a few retellings that I've enjoyed...enough that I don't feel it necessary to read the original. I read the first books in both the House of Night and the Sookie Stackhouse series and was bitterly disappointed with both, so I won't be reading further in either of those. The Time Traveler's Wife just seems way sadder than I'll ever be in the mood for. I'll never read No One Else Can Have You or Beautiful Disaster because of bad author behavior, even though I was very excited for that Kathleen Hale novel prior to all of that. :( I've tried listening to the audio for Beautiful Creatures quite a few times, but I can't get through more than the first 25% before I'm bored to tears. Someone ruined the ending of Bloodrose for me before I got a chance to read it, so now I don't have to, I guess. o_O And I made it to the third book in the Paranormalcy series before I just couldn't take the bleeps anymore.
