I decided to do a Top 5 Wednesday, which is to share 5 books that I wont ever read. Here they are, in no particular order:
1. The Hunger Games series. I haven't even seen the movies, but the whole premise of this dystopian series doesn't impress me. I actually cringe at the whole idea.
2. 50 Shades of Grey series. Again, haven't seen the movie either, but I did get slightly curious with all the buzz and looked up a few excerpts from the book. Woah! It is pretty sexually intense, though that is not what surprised me. I was actually shocked at the horrible writing for the sexually intense scenes in the book. It amazes me that so many people like it, even if they purely like it for the sex scenes. There has got to be better written stuff out there in that genre.
3. The Vampire Diaries. Bleh. I absolutely love the show, but the books were a bit iffy for me. I picked the first one up in a bookstore several times, giving the first few pages a go. I just cannot get past the extremely teenagery feel of the entire thing. Even the first few pages were too saturated with "OMG, like, I'm writing in a diary."
4. The Fault in Our Stars. I watched this movie and immediately wished I could pull the story and all the heavy emotions that came along with it our of my brain. I literally couldn't stop crying that night I watched it, and I slipped into a bit of depression. Watching people suffer like that because of sickness is something that triggers a lot of grief for me, and probably always will. Reading that for however many days it takes me to finish it...will never happen.
To be honest, I can't come up with a 5th book that I absolutely don't want to give a try. I'm sure there is one...but my mind is blank after those four! What about you? Is there five books you refuse to read?
