A really hyped book you’re not interested in reading?
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. I have seen this book recommended so much on BookTube and Bookstagram recently, but it just really doesn’t sound like something that I’d enjoy.
A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing?
The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. First of all, more often than not, I enjoy middle-grade reads. A lot of times, they are very well written and pack a pretty big punch. I really did enjoy the first book in the Land of Stories series (The Wishing Spell) and had every intent to continue with the series, but after further thought, I just realized that I felt like the writing and characters were a bit too immature for my taste, and that I didn’t want to continue on after all. However, I definitely recommend this series to a younger audience!
A classic that you’re just not interested in?
Anything by Jane Austen. I know she’s a classic author and as an English major, I’m supposed to like her, but I just can’t get over how thickly she lays on the descriptions and her storylines just never interest me.
Any genres you never read?
Historical fiction. There are a few genres that I don’t enjoy reading, but will still do so from time to time. But historical fiction is one that I honestly never read. I don’t know why but it just doesn’t interest me.
A book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I know this answer might upset some people because I’ve heard it recommended sooo much, but I have owned it for literally years and years and have never actually wanted to pick it up. It might be time to pass it on.
