Top 5 Books I’ll Probably Never Read

Hey everyone!

Today I have a post that I’ve been thinking about making for quite a while now. There are always books that I see around that are incredibly hyped and well loved, but I don’t have the urge to read them, despite how much everyone loves them.

So here are the 5 books that I’ll probably never read.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This is a novel that I’m pretty sure everyone who blogs/makes videos about books has read. It’s a contemporary novel that is apparently amazing, but I really don’t get the hype…

I’m already not someone who will choose a contemporary over a fantasy or sci-fi novel, so I don’t think I’ll ever get the urge to read this novel, especially when I have so many other novels that I want to read.

I do think that this novel is probably good, but it’s premise isn’t one that I think I’d be super compelled to read.

Additionally I’d like to add all other Rainbow Rowell books to this – I probably will never pick them up.


We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

This novel is one that I have heard about so much. The plot summary is so brief and doesn’t really make me feel compelled to read the novel. I know this novel is a thriller and the plot isn’t supposed to tell you much anyways, but despite that, I think it could have been something a bit more interesting to grab my attention, but that might just be me.

I also don’t really see the point of reading this suspense novel when there are loads out in the world I’d rather read.

Sorry for all the We Were Liars lover’s out there, but this one isn’t one I’d consider reading.


John Green

I’ve read The Fault in Our Stars and Turtles All the Way Down and I left both feeling like I just read another “meh” novel. I understand that all of his novels cover very important topics and they’re important reads, but I really don’t like his writing. It’s so boring and overly intelligent. Especially when writing teenagers, I feel as though the way they’re speaking is so incredibly unrealistic.

I think John Green is a great human being, but his writing isn’t for me.


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This is one raved about novel, and with the new movie coming out I can definitely feel the pressure to pick this novel up, but with some excerpts I’ve read from this novel and some of the information that I’ve heard about it I definitely don’t want to read this novel.

It just seems like an overly bad book that luckily got a movie deal for what seems like is going to be an overly bad movie.


Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

This one seems pretty self explanatory at this point. Firstly with this novel being incredibly triggering and (in my opinion) glorifying suicide and secondly with Jay Asher being a disgusting sexual predator.

This novel is one that I never really paid much mind to, but knowing what I know now, I’ll never read this novel.


Alright guys, that concludes my post about the Top 5 Books I’ll Probably Never Read.

Thank you so much for reading and don’t forget to follow my blog as well as my other social media sites.

  1. Good call on Rainbow Rowell and Thirteen Reasons.
    I read Eleanor & Park and was appalled at the blatant racism. I will never pick up one of Rowell’s books ever again.
    And you’re right. 13 Reasons is wrong on so many levels. Between glorifying suicide and outright victim blaming, it’s completely irresponsible and infuriating. I did not know Jay Asher’s a predator. …Not that I’d read anything of his regardless. Ever.

    I used to like John Green, but maybe I’ve outgrown him, I can’t appreciate his books anymore the way I used to.

  2. I will definitely never read We Are Liars! I was spoiled for the endings and I have heard so many mixed reviews that I do not want to risk my time on it.

    I never planned one reading 13 Reason Why because it is a trigger for me but now I definitely will never be reading it because Jay Asher is such a jerk!

    1. im with you on 13RW, it is such a horrible trigger, read the book and watched the series. i would never recommend it to anyone.

  3. I read all three of the John Green books and you aren’t missing much. I have no desire to read 13 Reasons Why and I hate that I even started the show. Suicide is a personal topic to me and I hate the way it’s portrayed.

    But I have to agree with you on this list. Even though I read some I wouldn’t say they’re my favorite books.

  4. I read Fangirl and enjoyed it, but I’m in total agreement about John Green and 13 Reasons Why. Sometimes when a book gets so much hype it makes me even less interested…because I doubt it could ever live up to all the accolades. I enjoyed this post!
