Top Ten Tuesday is a blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there’s a new given topic and you post your top ten list that goes with the subject. This weeks topic is “Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read” and at first I was thinking, “well dang if I really liked a book wouldn’t I want to re-read it???”. The truth is… no. There are many books out there that I ended up obsessing over but, quite frankly, they took so much effort to get through. The end result may have been worth it, but the thought of going through the process again makes me feel like i’m being ran over by a train.
Okay, most definitely.
But moving on, here’s my list of books that — if being forced to re-read — would equal being mauled by a train (yup, this metaphor is officially over lol):
▸Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi
Is it a valid reason that I only don’t want to re-read this because Warner isn’t in it as much… I vote yes!
▸The Museum of Heartbreak, by Meg Leder
I loooved the characters in this book but overall it was a mega load of frustration. I also hated one side dude which didn’t help at all!
▸Second Chance Summer, by Morgan Matson
Nope nope NOPE. Not putting myself through that heartbreaking storyline ever again!! My wallet was already emptied out after paying for all those tissues so it definitely can’t afford another go.
▸Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes
This one is pretty much in the same boat as Second Chance Summer because after knowing what goes down at the end, it isn’t as fun reading about everything that comes before said tragic ending.
▸All of This Is True, by Lygia Day Penaflor
Listen, I LOVED this one but DANG were two of these characters a total buzz kill. I couldn’t even imagine reading about them a second time around. For real, i’d rather consume an entire bowl full of cinnamon in one go.
▸An Enchantment of Ravens, by Margaret Rogerson
This may be a novel that I ultimately liked but it took me SUCH a long time to get through it that the thought of starting from the beginning again pains me.
▸Crown of Midnight, by Sarah J. Maas
I literally can’t with this one because two things occur that have me all UGH about. Won’t say what but if you’ve read this, you know what i’m talking about…
▸The Elite, by Kiera Cass
Idek I just remember being frustrated to the MAX(on) HA you get it?? *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge* ANYWAYS, stupid actions/decisions + annoyed me = a no-go.
▸A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas
Okay but sorry not sorry I will definitely not read this again knowing what Tamlin the Tool is like in book 2. Also can I just say I cannot BELIEVE I even shipped him with a living soul for a fraction of a second. The shame is real.
▸Heartless, by Marissa Meyer
Honestly, I don’t even remember much about the storyline which is kind of sad but not as depressing as that freaking ending. Yeah I am definitely not putting myself through that tragic turn of events again.
Feel free to let me know if you’ve read any of the ones I mentioned above and/or which books you cannot imagine EVER re-reading! Until next time,
Happy Reading! ♡
