Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading.

I just cleared off over 1000 from my Goodreads To-Read shelf, so picking 10 should be pretty easy. 😉 As long as I can remember any of the books I removed! All of these books I’ve chosen simply because I don’t have the time to read everything I want.


1. P.S. I Still Love You
by Jenny Han

It’s just been so long since I’ve read the first one.

2. Before
by Anna Todd

I started this book on audio, but had to return it. Plus, I was kind of over Hardin by this point.

3. The Bachelor Contract
by Rachel Van Dyken

I’m not a fan of this series for some reason. I liked the first book well enough, but the second fell too flat for me to pick up the third.

4. You Say It First
by Susan Mallery

I read the entire Fool’s Gold series which morphs into the Happily Inc series. Maybe I’ve just moved on. I don’t know why I’m not interested in picking this one up.

5. Life in a Fishbowl
by Len Vlahos

A friend passed this book on to me. I really wanted to read it, but I just haven’t had time. I don’t know when I’ll get to it so it made the list.

6. Loving Mr. Daniels
by Brittainy C. Cherry

I love Brittainy C. Cherry’s books and this one was on my list to read, but I don’t think I can do the student-teacher thing.

7. Thieving Weasels
by Billy Taylor

This one sounded interesting. I did a books for trade on Twitter for it. The book came smelling like cigarette smoke, so I had to pass on reading it.

8. How to Party with an Infant
by Kaui Hart Hemmings

I love this author and this was on my list to read, but I don’t see myself getting to this one.

9. The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo
by Amy Schumer

Honestly, I started reading this library book and it depressed the heck out of me. I never finished it and it is now off my list.

10. The Giver
by Lois Lowry

I own this book. I think I might still read it. Maybe with my daughter. For now, it’s off my list.

  1. I’ve yet to read Jenny Han’s series and I’m not sure if I want to to be honest. I’m told it’s a really good series but I’ve just not been drawn to it.

  2. I loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and the third book was my absolute favorite in the series; highly recommend <3 The first two were cute and fluffy, but the third one was so emotional because instead of the conflict being an unrealistic love triangle, it was all about getting ready for college–having to make crazy important decisions, being unable to control where you get in, choosing between staying with your family/friends/boyfriend vs going somewhere else. Ultimately it's your choice to read though 🙂

    • Good to know! I liked the cute and fluffy part of the first one. I just don’t know that I want to invest the time in the second two. You’re making me rethink it, though.

  3. I have “To all the boys I’ve loved before” at home and everyone keeps pestering me to read it. I will at some point, I guess hahaha but i am not sure I want to commit to the series as a whole.
    Also, I read the Giver and it is thought provoking and intense, but has SUCH an unsatisfying ending. I cannot even!

    • I thought it was cute. If the second book had came out closer to when I read it, I probably would have continued on.
      Oh, that’s good to know about the Giver! Almost sounds like Divergent…

  4. I read The Giver when I was younger and I did enjoy it. I own Amy Schumer’s memoir, so I hope to read that one.

    However, I’ve definitely gotten rid of a lot of books on my Goodreads and in my actual home that just don’t interest me anymore.

  5. I have a lot of books that have fallen off my list, too. And it’s not even that I am no longer interested in reading them, just that others are more interesting and they’re edging them out. I still have the Jenny Han book on my list to read.

  6. I’ve only really heard of the first two and the last one. I have to say that I have very little interest in reading The Giver even if I often see it in the young adult section in a local bookstore. It just has never appealed to me.

    • Someone told me The Giver was really good several years back, so I bought it but never read it. I don’t think it’s my thing either.
