Top Ten Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I’ve mentioned a time or two (or a million) that I am a mood reader. So, as of right now, these books aren’t calling to me. That said, that could change in a month, and all of a sudden, I won’t be able to get enough of them.

In no particular order . . .

clockwork princess cassandra clare

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Although it drives me a little crazy that I’ve read the first two books, but not this one, I still don’t think I will ever get back into this series. Cover is gorgeous, though.

lord of scoundrels by loretta chase

Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase
This is one of those historical romances that everyone raves about. I own the ebook. I’ve heard countless good things about it. But I’m not sure it’s for me. I think the hero may be an asshole, and I just don’t have patience for that.

maybe someday

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
I used to be super into New Adult. I’m just more into adult romance these days.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
I’ve just lost interest.

Finding It by Cora Carmack
Again, I’ve lost interest, and haven’t been super into New Adult of late.

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
I am perfectly happy with how things ended in The Rose Project.

under the lights by shannon stacey

Under the Lights by Shannon Stacey
I’ve read some other books by Stacey, and although they certainly weren’t bad, I find them kind of boring.

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I love JLA, but this one just isn’t appealing to me anymore.

Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks
I love the first book in this series so much. For real, it’s one of my all time favorites. But this looks so intense and sad, and I just don’t know if I can handle it.

Rock Redemption by Nalini Singh
It looks a little angsty for me. I do love Nalini Singh, though.

    JLA and CoHo are both on my list of authors I probably will never read again. I’ve lost interest in their books for good.

    I own a copy of Lord of Scoundrels but I’m kind of the same way. I mean I love an alpha male but he seems a little over alpha. I have a few series I don’t read anymore because I’m perfectly happy with how the first book ended and I don’t need to revisit that world anymore! Great list!

    I think you’re wise to skip The Rosie Effect. It did not at all measure up to The Rosie Project, which was pretty perfect and should have been left alone, IMHO. I have Poison Study on my list this week too — at the time when I bought it, years ago, it sounded interesting, but over time, I’ve never actually felt like reading it.

    Yes, sometimes perfectly good books end up on this sort of mental list for me because I’ve just moved on with my mood. As you say, it might change, but probably not.

    I will say that Highlander Most Wanted is intense and sad at times, but its also happy too, its just not as lighthearted as her other historical’s are. Obviously because you are dealing with some tough issues. but its one of my favorites of her books. You would have to be in the right mood for it so I do hope you are able to be in the mood to read it soon.

    Lord of Scoundrels is on my “someday” list, along with the Clockwork series. But if you’re not feeling it for those books anymore, you should let it go. Life’s too short to read anything that doesn’t appeal to you.

    You can see what I’ve deleted from my TBR pile here.

    I think it is funny that I own copies of most of the books that are on your list…but haven’t read any of them yet. Maybe I will get around to them someday.

  8. Angie @ Ba_BAMB

    I really enjoyed Highlander Most Wanted, but sadly the author hasn’t picked the series back up, and at this point, I don’t think we will ever see the next book.

    Under the Lights was a DNF for me, and I didn’t care for Lord of Scoundrels.

    Isn’t it funny how our evolve? Thanks for sharing!

    Clare and Carmack are two that were on my list but I forgot about. Just don’t stir the interest anymore. Ah well. Hope some of these are able to change your mind one day 🙂

    Poison Study and The Infernal Devices are two series I’m still desperate to read. I highly recommend Maybe Someday though!! R xx
