Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Will Probably Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 
This week's theme: Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read.
It's been so long since I've participated in Top Ten Tuesday, I think the last time was February or March! But, I really want to get back into it, I love these link ups and I love visiting other participating blogs!

The Harry Potter Series
Honestly I don't see myself ever reading this series, I'm 18, and I've never been interested in it and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
(P.S. If you're a Harry Potter superfan, please don't kill me!)

Wuthering Heights
I haven't tried to read this one yet, but just from reviews I've seen I don't think it's something I would like, and I think I would struggle to finish it.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 
I know a lot of people love this book and loved the movie, but there's just too much violence for me.

Julius Caesar
I was supposed to read this one for my English class, but I just couldn't do it. Thankfully I was able to read enough of the book to pass the test and write a paper on the book. Luckily my teacher also provided us with links to a BBC small film, the quality sucked, but I was able to do the work and that's all that matters.

The Lord of the Rings
I know quite a few people who would probably kill me if they read this, but I've never been interested in reading this series. Fantasy just isn't my thing.

I've tried time and time again to read Jane Austen novels and it always takes me forever to finish them. Normally I have no trouble finishing a book with over 400 pages, but it took me a month to finish Pride and Prejudice and probably longer for Sense and Sensibility.

The Fault In Our Stars
Go ahead, yell at me, send me hate for not reading it, I'm just not interested. I think this book and John Green in general is over hyped.

The Jungle 
One one hand I want to read this, but then I start to think about actually picking it up and I just don't want to know that much about the meat industry and food industry.

Honestly when I first saw this topic I thought I would be able to come up with a full 10 books, but now that I think about it I can't think of 10 books. I'm the type of reader who is usually willing to give anything a try, but I know what I like and these are a few of the books I can't imagine ever reading.

That's it for today, I'll probably think of a ton of more books I could add to this list later, but for now this is it.

What books will you probably never read? Let me know below and if your participated in Top Ten Tuesday leave your link below so I can see your list!


  1. Being 18 shouldn't stop you reading children's books. Just saying. You should read what you want to read - and not read what you DON'T want to read! Don't let anyone pressure you into something!

    1. I think I worded that wrong, it's not because I'm 18 that I don't want to read the books, I've just never been interested. Sometimes I feel pressured by Harry Potter superfans to read the books, especially the Tumblr fans, if you're under 25 and haven't read the books they tend to bully you for it and I don't like that. I definitely agree with you on reading what you want to read and not what other people want you to read!

  2. I'm seeing so many "Don't kill me!!!"'s this week. Book bloggers can be scary people, huh? But don't worry, I feel the same way about a lot of these!

    1. Thanks Danni, I agree book bloggers can definitely be scary at times!

  3. Agree with a few, but I have to agree with Beth - don't rule books out just because you feel you're 'too old', I always think it's sad when people shut out great books due to age. :( Going to agree on Wuthering Heights - I forced myself through that one and it really wasn't worth it. I love a lot of the other Bronte's books, but WH really didn't do it for me.

  4. I watched GWTDT but didn't understand the need for violence.

  7. I have to admit I didn't expect to see Harry Potter but I do know a lot of people have never read it or seen films so don't worry haha :-) I'd love to read The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit but I've heard they're quite hard to read- maybe one day! :-)

    Interesting selection! Hope you're having a great day! Here's my TTT if you would like to check it out :-)
