I know I’m always going on and on about books I want to read, and there are plenty of those. My wish list has over 500 books, and I’m pretty sure there are some I just simply forgot to add.
I never actually talked about books I don’t want to read though.
Marina @Books of Magic however tagged me to do just that.
A Really Hyped Book You’re Not Interested in Reading?
Pretty much all the books with mermaids and other sea-creature-people. I just don’t find the topic intriguing at all! My mermaid phase pretty much ended with Arielle at the age of 6. Sorry, mermaid fans!
A Series You Won’t Start/Won’t Be Finishing?
I think everyone and their mother knows by now that I have zero interest in the Harry Potter series. I also have no intention to read the Infernal Devices. Neither fantasy nor paranormal are my jam. Add a sprinkle of romance, some vampires, a touch of historical fiction, and I’m out!
The covers are gorgeous though!
A Classic That You’re Just Not Interested In?
Most of them?!? No, but for realz. I’ve read my fair share of Jane Austens and enjoy the occasional classic dystopian books, and I think I will eventually read Jane Eyere, but I just don’t often feel like reading classics.
Any Genres You’ve Never Read?
Romance. I just can’t… I feel like they are setting kind of unrealistic expectations of what a relationship should look like. Same goes for erotica. I’m not a prude, but I literally don’t need a detailed description about the mechanics of sex.
I’d love to see the books Inge, Diana, Annemieke, Emma and Ayunda will never read.
