Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Check out future topics here.
I had a hard time with this list. I love to read many different genres and will usually give any book a try. That being said, I was able to come up with 6 books that I will probably never read.
1. Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
I barely made it through Wicked, so I doubt that I will go back for more.
2. Anything by Nicholas Sparks
I foolishly let my husband convince me to watch The Notebook, even though I knew I would hate the movie. His writing is just not my thing.
3. The Long Night of White Chickens by Francisco Goldman
I tried to read it, I really did, but I could not make it through the whole book. I am pretty sure that I will not try again.
4. 50 Shades of Grey
I have zero interest in reading this book. I don't really understand why it is so popular, especially since I have heard that the writing is bad.
5. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I chose this book for a book report in high school and couldn't even make it past the first chapter. I passed the assignment by choosing to do a dramatic reading of a scene from the book as my book report. I chose the very first scene.
6. What to Expect when You're Expecting
I don't ever plan to have children, so I am pretty sure I will never read this book.
If you think I am missing out on something by not reading/re-trying to read any of these books, let me know. I might be convinced to give them a whirl :)
