Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read

I have been out of the picture to say the least. So please forgive me if I'm a little rusty!

This week on TTT we are talking about books we doubt we will ever read. There are a lot of books on my TBR pile both physically and within my mind. So there are some I doubt I'll ever read even though I want to or they are really popular. These are just a few!

1) Les Miserable by Victor Hugo - This book is SO BIG! and I want to read it but we don't always get what we want. I doubt I'll get to read this book at least in the near future, If ever.

2) Half Bad by Sally Green - I'm really not into Witches even though people like this series!

3) The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins - I could not get into Gone Girl and so many people compare these two books so I doubt I could get into this one.

4) The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman - This series has never appealed to me and I don't know if I'll ever pick it up.

5) A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle - Again, a series I didn't pick up in childhood and I doubt I'll get into now as an adult.

6) House of Night Series by P.C. Cast - This series is such a time investment so I do not think I'll ever start it.

7) Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer - I have owned this book multiple times in my life and have given it away multiple times without reading it.

8) Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier - This series has been out a while and I've heard such mixed things I don't think I want to pick it up.

9) Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White - There was some buzz about this book when it came out. However, I was never really excited about it.

10) The DUFF by Kody Keplinger - Even though I've heard some great things about this book, I didn't even go see the movie. I don't read contemporary that often so I doubt I'll get my hands on this one.


  1. I loved the DUFF book but never watched the movie.

  4. I've never been interested in Les Mis since sitting through the 3 hour depressing fest that is the movie. I love Artemis Fowl, but not all books are for everyone.

  5. I have heard of most of the books on your list!! http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/05/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-i-will.html

  6. I tried really hard to like the DUFF movie but was really disappointed. It made me not pick up the book!

  7. I haven't read either The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl. I could have put them on my list, too.
