For once, I didn’t steal a tag from Thrice Read. I saw this one on Ariel Bisset’s YouTube channel, although the original creator is littlespider9.
1. A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?
Most popular contemps, tbh. It’s just not a genre that I reach out for very often, so I’m realistically only going to get to a few of them. So a contemp really has to have a strong premise to grab my attention. One good example would be any Adam Silvera novel. I know he’s very beloved, but I get the impression that people love his books as much as they do because of the LGBT representation, so I don’t really have much interest in reading any of them, because that’s just not enough for me. The one book of his that I might try is They Both Die At the End, because that does have a pretty interesting premise.
2. A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?
I have a whole series of posts on book series I won’t be finishing, so I’ll go with a book series that I don’t intend to start. For that, I’ll go with Delirium by Lauren Oliver. It’s a fairly popular series, albeit old… but I just don’t really have any interest in it.
3. A classic that you’re just not interested in?
Moby Dick by Herman Melville. I just don’t want to. There are probably a few others that I just have no interest in reading (Mark Twain for example. I read Tom Sawyer and was bored out of my mind), but I think this is at the top of the list.
4. Any genres you never read?
I wouldn’t say I never read them, but I tend not to and that is contemporary fiction and also horror. It’s not that I never read them or that I never enjoy them when I do, but I don’t often find myself wanting to read something in these genre.
5. A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?
I’m sure I have more than one, but the first that comes to mind is Clancy of the Undertow by Cristopher Curie. It’s a contemp about unrequited love, if memory serves and the only thing that (as far as I could tell) made it in any way remarkable is that it’s LGBT. And I just don’t care about that story and there are so many books I’m excited to read, that I just don’t see why I would read this. I won it in a giveaway, I didn’t buy it, if you were wondering.
