Books I’m Not Interested In Reading

I am struggling to find inspiration for posts at this moment, for a whole number of reasons, but I was scrolling through youtube earlier and saw multiple videos along these lines… I thought it’d be fun to do my own. If you love these books, I apologise! You are more than welcome to love them and rave about them to me, I just personally have no interest in reading them myself.


Anything by Richard Yates

I loathed Revolutionary Road – I only finished it because I had to for school. It was horrific in so many ways I just can’t make myself read anything else by the same author.

How To Build a Girl – Caitlin Moran

This is one of the few books that I have consciously DNF’d. It wasn’t for me.

Zenith – Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

Controversial, I know. I’m not really interested in science fiction generally anyway, and I was reading a little bit Sasha had shared on her Instagram story (I think), and the writing is just… not great.

Anything by Stephen King

I’m scared of my own shadow and so would have no hope with Stephen King.

A Game of Thrones – George R. R. Martin

I’m not really a fan of high fantasy, and these books are massive.

The Bronze Horseman – Paullina Simons

I’ve heard mixed reviews about this book, but the bad aspects definitely outweigh the good.

The Divergent Series – Veronica Roth

It’s been out such a long time now, and I’ve never particularly wanted to read it.

If you love these books / authors, honestly that’s great! I’m not going to blab on about disclaimers etc. I’d like to think everyone can have their different opinions and share them in a nice manner. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my list!

  1. I’ve actually read 4.5 out of the 5 available Game of Thrones books and I don’t even know how I got that far. I can’t stand the books anymore, I’d rather just read up on some wikia page what happens with my favorite characters hahaha
    I hope your motivation comes back and that you are feeling well! Also, you are not missing anything with the Divergent books and I am not particularly interested in Zenith either. You are not alone 😉

      1. Back in the day (don’t ask me how old I was when I read Divergent), I liked it. Especially in the beginning, but most of us pretend Allegiant never happened?

  2. Good for you on Divergent. So not worth it. I’ve heard a lot of mixed things on Zenith and even though I do love sci-fi I am not really interested in this one either.
