Each week, the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish think up a fun theme for the week and participating bloggers around the net join in. The theme for this week is:

Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want to Read

 The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. For real. I’m so torn on this book. I’ve heard great things, but it covers a subject much too close to home. My Gran was diagnosed with leukemia last year, and I just don’t think I can handle it.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I know, I know. I did want to read it, but I started the audiobook and just couldn’t get into it. I listened to like 10 min and I really don’t think I want to read it.

A Dance With Dragons by George RR Martin. I really think I won’t read anymore or reread this series until the whole flipping series is complete. Then I’m getting a paperback set and dismantling it to read it by character. Jumping around so much bothers me! O.o

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Mary has highly recommended this series to me, I just don’t know if I want to make time for it. /:

The Vampire Diaries by LJ Smith. I’ve read the first book and just dunno. They’re good, but I’m too attached to the show and they are too different.

Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. Nope. I’m a big fantasy reader and hubby has tried to spark my interest, but it’s too big of a commitment even for me!

All the free books I stupidly downloaded for my kindle back when I was obsessive about scoping out free book giveaways on Facebook. I’ll never get to them and half of them aren’t even that interesting. 

Requiem by Lauren Oliver. Good heavens this audiobook was KILLING ME. Plus I saw a certain twist coming a mile away and the love triangle is so forced it’s ridiculous. Just not interested in knowing how things end.

Until the Beginning by Amy Plum. I was so underwhelmed by After the End that I am not interested in knowing how things play out.
