TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: BOOKS I DON’T PLAN ON READING (AS OF RIGHT NOW)

These are some interesting, well-known non-choices of from Bookwraiths from this part Wednesday. I can only say I’ve read Hunger Games and enjoyed it. The others have not interested me for probably the same reasons listed. Reblogging on Archer’s Aim.

Today, the guys in the Goodreads Top 5 Wednesday group had a great topic: Books I Don’t Plan on Reading (As of Right Now.)  “Whether it’s from a series that you have outgrown or don’t wish to continue, or they are popular books that just don’t interest you, let us know what you don’t plan on reading.

Hard topic for me personally.  I tend to eventually get around to most speculative fiction authors at some point or another.  I won’t like them all obviously, but the very idea of having a “Not To Be Read” shelf bothers me.  However, I do have some books I don’t see myself ever wanting to read.  At least, in the near future.  Doesn’t mean I won’t at some point pick them up, but, at least, right now, it is not in my plans.  So my list will be about those books.

  1. That was a cool post. Thanks for pointing me over there (I left a comment). I never read the Hunger Games, but I loved Harry Potter (with the exception of the first book), and I enjoyed American Gods. Have also read 4 of the Dresden books and have to eventually get back to the series. I thought that was a great post for discussion.

    1. It sure is a good comment on reading for your own tastes and not because it’s popular. But then, most people pick up books because everyone else is reading it – power of word of mouth…

      1. I know. Sometimes though I just have to shake my head at what becomes trendy. The 50 Shades of Grey mania still leaves me bewildered. I encountered so many people who read that book just because “everyone else is reading it.” Ack! I’ll stick with my own tastes, LOL!
