Top Ten Tuesday was originally created/hosted by the team that was The Broke & The Bookish but is now hosted by Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl!
This week is an interesting topic for many reasons, but mostly because I’m horrible at taking things off of my To Read Shelf. However, I do find that if I don’t read a book early and then I start to hear things about it that make me feel kind of meh or I just it tends to sit forever on my TBR list I do lose interest. I try to clean my To Read shelf occasionally, but I don’t do it often enough. That said, I’m going to do it now, and I’m going to share the titles that I’m removing!
The Testing Series by Joelle Charboneau – I read book 1 and liked it, but didn’t love it. It’s kind of a mash up of other dystopians, so I’m sure I’ll never go back to it
Across The Universe Series by Beth Revis – Again, I read book 1 and only liked it… I haven’t had the urge to go back to it so I’m pretty sure I won’t.
Age of X Series by Richelle Mead – I love Vampire Academy… however, I have had this book on my shelf for ages and I honestly don’t think I’ll ever read it. I haven’t heard a lot of glowing things so it’s not high on my list.
Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead– ugh… again I loved Vampire Academy, but the bloodlines just didn’t pull me in as much as I had hoped it would. I’ve read a couple of the books but haven’t gone back.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young – I have heard amazing things about this series, however, the writing style kills me every time I try to pick it up.
The Hunt Series by Andrew Fukuda – I’m intrigued by the premise of this series… but not enough to actually pick it up and read it. I’ve had these books on my shelf for a while and I just haven’t. I think it’s time to be honest with myself.
Outlander Series by Diana Galbadon – I have no urge what so ever to read these books. Don’t get me wrong, I love romance, but I’ve heard so much conflicting thoughts on them. I’ve watched the first season of the series, I have season 2 & 3 to watch and I like it, but it’s not riveting to me.
Uninvited by Sophie Jordan– okay I’m torn on this one because I heard amazing things about this book, but then I also heard book 2 wasn’t one I’d love. Soooooo I think I should just not bother.
Immortal Games Series by Ann Aguirre – I am not entirely sure why I haven’t picked this series up yet… Friends have enjoyed it, but I just haven’t had the urge to get it. I’m not sure I will.
Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard – some of the people that I trust most who have read this book… hated it. So I think I’m safe in saying that I probably will never pick it up.
Are there any on this list that I really need to reconsider? Have you culled your ‘To Read’ shelf lately? What’s something you removed? Let me know in the comments!
