Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m No Longer Interested In

Here are some books I’ve recently changed my mind about…

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

1. Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough

CrossHerHeart

I feel pretty bad about this one because I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. However, I just DNF’d Dead to Her by Sarah Pinborough because I absolutely despised everything about it and I’ve heard this one is very similar. I might still give Behind Her Eyes a shot but overall, I don’t think this is an author for me.

2. Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia

NowEnteringAddamsville

I was so excited for this to be released. But I’ve heard so many negative reviews about this that I’ve just kind of lost interest.

3. Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertelli

YesNoMaybeSo

This is easily the one I feel the most guilty about… not only do I have an ARC copy of this but I just picked this as a BOTM add on. But I read the first chapter and I just don’t think this is going to be for me. I’ve really fallen out of love with YA romance and I just need to graciously part ways.

4. In the Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund

HallWithTheKnife

I picked this up back in October for all the spooky readathons but never got around to it. I have so many other books on my shelves I know I’m never going to actually get to this.

5. Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

ThingsYouSaveInFire

Another BOTM selection from last year… I started this on audiobook twice and only got about 45 minutes in before setting it aside. I just have no desire to actually read this and I’ve heard such lukewarm things recently. So I’m parting ways.

6. Today, Tonight, Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Soloman

TodayTonightTomorrow

This one doesn’t even come out until June but I’ve decided to take it off my Goodreads TBR. Like I said earlier, I’ve fallen out of love with the YA contemporary genre so I’m taking break from it.

7. Swipe Right For Miurder by Derek Milman

SwipeRight

I tried. I really did. This was one of my most anticipated 2019 releases and I loved Derek Milman’s debut novel Scream All Night. But the first 50 pages of this were a hot mess in my opinion and I just can’t bring myself to continue on.

8. The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

RestOfTheStory

I loved Sarah Dessen as a teen but again, this genre and I no longer see eye to eye. I’ve read the first 50 pages of this but I don’t think I’ll ever really be in the mood to carry on. So this goes to the unhaul pile too.

9. Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi

TellMeHowYouReallyFeel

I love that this is a female, female romance but it also sounds like its chock-full of high school drama so I’m out. Taking it off my TBR.

10. The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

Testaments

I really enjoyed The Handmaid’s Tale but I’ve decided that I don’t need to continue on. I’m good with leaving it as a standalone. So this has ben added to the unhaul pile too.


Are there any books you’ve recently changed your mind about??

  1. I also recently decided that Yes, no maybe so is just not going to be for me.. I wasn’t a fan of Becky Albertalli’s previous release, and I think there will be too much American politics in this one..
