It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a tag but what can I say, I don’t find a lot of time to write posts these days. And also my memory has gone to the toss, and I can never think of what books to talk about in the many wonderful tag posts I see everyday. But I found this lovely one on Steph’s blog @ A Little But a Lot and knew I wanted to do it. So, let’s get started.
1. A POPULAR BOOK EVERYONE LOVES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING?
This book is quite popular and highly acclaimed, and definitely a favorite among my blogging friends, but I’ve read enough reviews to know that it has many elements that’ll make me very anxious and I can appreciate the nominations and awards it wins without ever reading it.
2. A CLASSIC BOOK (OR AUTHOR) YOU DON’T HAVE AN INTEREST IN READING?
I will be very honest, I’m not much of a fan of classics and whatever I read in my childhood, I think that’s enough for my read pile. Jane Austen is still the only classic author I love and I still enjoy her retellings but have no intention of reading any other classics anymore.
3. A PROBLEMATIC AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING?
These days, the obvious answer is J.K. Rowling. And I have no intention of reading any of her future works. I have lots of good memories with Harry Potter which I still cherish but that doesn’t mean I have to continue supporting her in anyway. There are I’m sure many other problematic authors and while I don’t maintain a list, I can always find someone on booktwt to let me know the deets whenever I encounter such issues.
4. AN AUTHOR YOU HAVE READ A COUPLE OF BOOKS FROM & HAVE DECIDED THEIR BOOKS ARE NOT FOR YOU?
Probably Victoria Schwab. I’ve read two duologies of hers and while they were good, I always had some nagging issues with them. So, I don’t know if I wanna read anything more by her.
5. A GENRE YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN OR A GENRE YOU TRIED TO GET INTO & COULDN’T?
Literary Fiction. I may have read a few before but this is one genre I don’t feel like picking up at all despite any number of awards the books might win. I’ve even read a couple of horror books these past few months which in itself is very surprising, but I’m still not there with LitFic yet.
6. A BOOK YOU HAVE BOUGHT BUT WILL NEVER READ? (THIS CAN BE A BOOK YOU HAVE UNHAULED/RETURNED TO THE LIBRARY UNREAD)
OMG there are so many…!!!!!! I buy books on sale all the time because I am too impulsive, but end up not wanting to read them at all. A few of them would be A Curse of Dark and Lonely, Priest of Bones, maybe even Senlin Ascends and The Lies of Locke Lamora.
7. A SERIES YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING OR A SERIES YOU STARTED & HAVE DNF’D?
I have started and abandoned the first books in both the Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive series, not that they were bad, just that I lost interest some way into them. And I have no idea if I will pick them up soon.
8. A NEW RELEASE YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING?
Lost in the Never Woods, A Trial of Sorcerers and The Stolen Kingdom are some books I’ve seen discussed quite a bit recently but I don’t feel much interested in them.
And that’s it..!!! This was fun and I hope you enjoyed reading it. And maybe some of you would want to try it out as well. In that case, don’t forget to link back to me so I can checkout all your fun answers 🙂
