This Week’s Topic: Top Ten Books I’m not sure I want to read
1. The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green
Or anything John Green really…I’m tempted (as I am by any book that a lot of people are reading), but at the same time, I’m not really into realistic fiction…and I’m kinda proud of the fact that I haven’t read John Green.
2. Sweet Evil, by Wendy Higgins
I started listening to the audiobook, but the narrator had an annoying voice, so I never finished it. My sister has read the series, though, and she loved it.
3. Game board of the Gods, by Richelle Mead
I read the first few pages while in the bookshop, and I didn’t love it straight away. So I might read it some time when I don’t have a bajillion other books to read.
4. The Morganville Vampires, by Rachel Caine
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this series, but there’s 15 books…that’s a lot.
5. Dangerous Boys, by Abigail Haas
I read Dangerous Girls, and while I did enjoy it, there is no denying the fact that it freaked me out.
It’s weird, because I always want to read the creepy books, and then I regret reading them when I finish them, because they freak me out too much.
6. Under the Dome, by Stephen King
I’ve seen a couple of episodes of the tv show, and I’ve enjoyed it…but again, do I want to read it and face the lack of sleep that it almost sure to follow?
And, that’s it for the books I’m not sure about…however, because I still want to make it to ten, here are my Top Ten Books I wasn’t sure I wanted to read, but am glad I did:
7. If I Stay, by Gayle Forman
I only read it because I saw a trailer for the movie, and it looked interesting. I don’t usually read contemporary, but I’m glad I read this one.
8. Hex Hall, by Rachel Hawkins
This was a few years ago, but I saw all 3 books in the shop at once one time, and I thought about it, and I thought about it some more…and I didn’t buy them.
By the time I changed my mind and went back for them, they were gone.
I was kicking myself for months.
Anyway, eventually they showed up again, so I bought them one at a time. And I loved them.
9. City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare
I’ll be honest, the cover was what put me off this book. But eventually I discovered what it was about, read the first chapter online, and then bought the book. I quite enjoyed the rest of the books in the series.
10. Legend, by Marie Lu
Another book who’s cover put me off, and another one that I decided to read once I discovered what it was about.
This was a great series.
