Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks Top Ten Tuesday's subject is the Top Ten books that I'm not sure I want to read.
Maybe it's a book that I bought that I'm just not sure about anymore, or I've heard mixed things, or it's overly-hyped.
But whatever the reason may be, here are 10 of the books that make me nervous to think about opening and reading.
^^How I feel when I see these books^^
All of them.
I've read the first one...but that's it. I saw all of the movies before I got the books and I LOVE the movies. I'm worried I'm going to read the books and they are going to ruin the movies for me or somehow I will not really like the books because of the movies.
Let's be real, these books are daunting just to look at.
I really love the show so I would someday like to give the books a go...but we'll see.
I read Divergent before all the hype, but then Insurgent and Allegiant came out and EVERYONE seemed to be talking about them. And the controversy with how Allegiant is supposed to end? I mean, Veronica Roth got death threats over it....
If that doesn't make you nervous to read a book I don't know what will.
I'm not even going to try and hide it. I have a sever love for Nicholas Sparks movies. I hadn't ever tried to read any of his books though, but when I read the synopsis of The Longest Ride it sounded like one that I would love and the movie isn't out yet so I have nothing to compare it with.
So I started reading it and starting falling for the characters...then I abruptly stopped. If you are not familiar with Nicholas Sparks work, someone usually dies at the end and I'm nervous as hell that it's going to be Luke in this story.
I've been informed that story will rip my heart out.
Yeah, that'll put me a little on edge to grab a book and read it.
The Fever series was my first introduction to urban fantasy/romance and it hooked me to the genre.
Barrons played a big part in that...but I loved the world and I loved seeing Mac grow and change through the entire series.
Now there are the new Dani O'Malley books that are a continuation of the Fever series but also their own series. I liked Dani's character but I'm not sure how I feel about her being the main character in how this world was built and portrayed. As of right now her books are Dani O'Malley #1, 2, and 3, and Fever #6, 7, and 8. Then I read rumors Fever 9 and 10 will be back to being Barrons and Mac? Can this be real life? Is that true?
Either way I'm not sure I want to read Dani's spinoff series or any continuing books because I liked how Fever ended and I'm okay with it staying that way.
The Fault in Our Stars was my first John Green book. It ripped my heart out into a million pieces. And it continues to do that every time I read it. And it did it when I saw the movie.
After I read that one I tried to read An Abundance of Katherines but was eh about it.
Then I started reading Looking for Alaska, but wasn't really clicking with the characters at the time, and I was getting near to a big thing that I know happens in the book happening so I stopped reading it.
But I really love John Green's writing style so I want to stop being scared and just read his other books.
The Darkest Minds was one of my favorite books of 2013. The ending messed me up a little bit. If I don't read this one (the sequel) I won't have to see if everything doesn't become okay. I can stay in the story that I built in my mind where everyone is happy and wonderful.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Mara Dyer #2)
If you've read the first one you know why this one makes me anxious....if you haven't read it all you need to know is "cliff-hanger of doom". How can I put myself through something like that again?
Vampire Academy about did me in. The last couple of books were so intense and kept me up for nights reading them as fast as I could to find out what happened. What if more bad things happen in these books??
Also, as stated earlier, spinoffs make me nervous too.
Alright fellow book lovers, there are just 10 of the books that have me pacing around my room thinking about all the bad things that could happen if I do read them.
Any of these on your list?
What else made your list?
