Top Ten Tuesday: I'm Not Sure I Want to Read

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Game of Throne by George R.R. Martin - These books are just so long.  I'm not sure I'm prepared to read them, or really if I want to read them.

2. & 3. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess - Since these are classics,  I feel like I should read them but I've been told by a couple people that I should definitely NOT read them.  So I'm torn.

4. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs - I liked this first book but I'm not sure I want to continue the story of these children. 

5. Four a Divergent collection by Veronica Roth -  I was kind of apathetic about Allegiant and Four's voice wasn't strong enough for me.  I'm concerned that this book will also have that problem.

6. Linger & Forever by Maggie Stiefvater - I listened to Shiver and it was decent but it seemed to end in a pretty good place.  I'm not sure I can make it through the rest of the trilogy.  It feels a little to close to Twilight for comfort...(Not the writing, just the type of book.)

7. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini - This one may never get read by me.  I feel like I should finish the series but I had to struggle through the rest of the series.  So if I do read it, it won't be for a long time.

8. A Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) - I want to read this but I'm not sure I will like it. And if I start I'm going to be compelled to finish the series and it's going to be a long series.  I don't know if I can commit to such a long series.

9. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - I've heard this trilogy is very good, but I'm hesitant to read trilogies at the moment.  I've read a couple not so good endings recently and I'm a little tired of them. 

10. City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare - The last book in the series seemed to wrap up nicely that it's tempting not to continue on.  I haven't made up my mind yet.

  1. Oh yes, the books from George Martin are quite the commitment, but I would say they are totally worth it :) I've read the first 3 books now (and want to wait with the others until the series starts again) and I loved them.

    I stopped reading TMI after the third book.
