If we’re honest, we all have books that we never plan on reading for one reason or another. What are some books that you will (probably) never read and why? This book tag will help you answer those questions.

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.
