This week's topic is:
 Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I'm not Sure I Want to Read Anymore!
*These are in no particular order!


Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Dangerous
1. The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: I've heard all types of things about this one... I'm not sure I want to read it anymore since everyone hates it. But at the same time, I NEED TO KNOW THE ENDING!

2. Dangerous by Shannon Hale: I had this one for review. But then everyone started DNF-ing and I got scared. I still haven't read this one and I'm not sure I will. 

Evernight (Evernight, #1)The Casual Vacancy
3. Evernight by Claudia Gray: I've heard so many mixed things about this... I haven't seen five people that actually liked it. All the reviews I've seen were for 3 stars or less. And even if they liked this one, the rest of the series they said they gave up on. 

4. The Casual Vacancy by J.K. ROwling: I don't want to read this and be disappointed like everyone else was. I didn't see anyone just blown away like they were with Harry Potter, so this probably won't be read by me. I don't want to ruin my vision of her and her writing. 

Wake (Watersong #1)Hungry
5. Wake by Amanda Hocking: I bought this because I thought the cover was gorgeous and I knew it was about mermaids. I was not expecting it to be about mean girls and randomness. I DNF'ed it and said I'd pick it back up later since I purchased it... Yeah I don't think it's happening. 

6. Hungry by H.A. Swain: I really was just being nosey when I requested this... And then I saw that people were not impressed with this title so I kept pushing it to the side. I'll pick it up one day... Maybe. 

Teardrop (Teardrop, #1)The Infinite Moment of Us
7. Teardrop by Lauren Kate: Have you SEEN the reviews for this?! Like man, there is no way to save this one. And it comes complete with the trolls that will haunt your reviews if you say you don't like it. I'd rather not risk it. I'll take everyone's word for it and pass..... I think. 

8. The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle: Everyone loved her previous books, but this one was not loved by many of her fans. Which surprised me because just from the synopsis I really think I may enjoy this love story... I think.

The Nightmare Dilemma (The Arkwell Academy, #2)Dear Killer
9. The Nightmare Dilemma by Mindee Arnett: I was SO EXCITED for the first book in this series, but when I read it, I was highly disappointed. So when this one came out I was like "Oh I'll read it..." Now March has come and gone and I haven't looked at this book since. Not sure if I even still want to. 

10. Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell: The reviews for this one sucked too. I almost purhased it, but waited until I read some reviews on it. Now I'll be waiting to get it from my library.... I just don't want to take that chance. I'd rather only half read it or keep putting it off if it isn't mine. 

What books are you not sure about anymore?!

  1. Yeah not sure I'll ever read Rowling's adult series. It just doesn't sound like my thing. I want to read Dangerous myself. Read a good review of it that made me buy it but I have yet to have time to read it. But I plan to, eventually.

    I heard mixed things over Evernight too. That was actually one of my picks as well!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Yeah, I never finished DEAR KILLER--didn't love the writing, and it was too unrealistic. I loved MOCKINGJAY (though not necessarily things that happened) and you should totally read it! And I liked the Evernight series when I read it forever ago.

  3. I didn't hate Mockingjay, but it was definitely my least favorite in the series. I'd say it's worth muddling through to find out how it all ends - it's pretty crazy. The Casual Vacancy also made my list - I'm sooo afraid of that one! Good luck! :)

  4. I would definitely recommend reading Mockingjay because you need to read the ending! I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I would say overall it was a decent ending. Great picks! :D

  6. Mockingjay broke my heart but I'm glad I read it just because I'm one of those people who needs to know how things end. I also read and gave up on the Evernight series, it wasn't bad I just felt like I was a little too old to enjoy it.

  7. I really loved The Casual Vacancy but I seem to be in the minority! Mockingjay was awful.
