I was lucky enough to be tagged in the Books I’ll Probably Never Read tag by Kris over at Boston Book Reader! Kris writes all sorts of interesting posts, and does a bunch of awesome challenges and tags! I definitely recommend checking her blog out. As far as the tag goes … well, it is what it says on the tin really: a tag about books you’ll probably never read. Who knew?
A really hyped book you are not interested in reading?
I fully expect to be pelted with tomatoes and rotten eggs for this one, but I just could not get into it. I am not the world’s biggest fantasy fan, and so it takes a lot to suck me into a book that deals with a lot of magic and mysticism. Will it stay on my shelf? Yes. Will I try again? Probably. But for some reason it’s just not attracting me at all. Please don’t kill me.
A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?
Remember what I said about fantasy? That extends here, too. Just not my cup of tea and I have never had any interest in any of these books. I’m glad people enjoy them! But they’re just not for me.
A classic that you’re just not interested in?
Please don’t kill me, but I’d rather get a root canal than read Pride & Prejudice. I have never liked it, I never had that Austen phase so many of my peers had in high school. I was too busy falling in love with Charles Dickens, because I was weird.
Any genres you have never read?
I can’t say there’s anything I’ve never read, but I don’t like and almost always avoid nonfiction.
A book on your shelves that you’ll probably never actually read?
Do I own 3 copies of Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone? Yes, yes I do. Will I ever actually read this beautiful Ravenclaw edition? Probably not. Am I sorry? Not a bit!
I tag … you! Anyone who wants to do this tag, I’m easy. Enjoy!
