Anti-TBR Tag

I’ve been seeing this one going around Booktube and the blog-sphere and decided that it looked fun! I think it was created by Nicole @Nicole and Her Books on Booktube!

A popular book everyone loves but you have no interest in reading?

Renegades – Marissa Meyer

Sorry guys. I know I know. Superheros are cool, but this one holds like nothing that interests me. I also didn’t love the Lunar Chronicles so I’m going to pass on this one.

A classic book/author you don’t have an interest in reading?

War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy

I read Anna Karenina a few years ago and I didn’t love it, so I’ll probably never read War and Peace. I found the writing in Anna Karenina to be rather wordy and I’m pretty sure that War and Peace is just as long and wordy. If I am going to read a book over 1000 pages long, I’d rathe read a book that I know for sure I’ll enjoy.

An author whose books you have no interest in reading?

Rainbow Rowell. I read Eleanor and Park, and Fangirl and they didn’t really interest me either? The writing was meh, and the author herself has far too many problematic elements in these works for me to really want to support her.

A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading?

I’m not going to read another book by J.K. Rowling. I read the Harry Potter series, but I don’t plan on reading anymore of her books.

An author you have read a couple books from and decided their books are not for you?

Holly Black

I read The Cruel Prince, and …eh…it was not for me. Something about the writing style and the plot just was not something that interested me to pursue further, but I’m also happy for those who love the series, since the short story collection just came out!

A genre you have no interest in OR genre you tried and couldn’t get into?

Contemporary. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’ve read some great contemporary books, but they never really interest me unless there is some kind of fantasy or sci-fi element involved. I Just find contemporary fiction to be something I don’t reach for. I read to escape, so to read a novel set in our world, it’s got to have a pretty noteworthy story. Do you have any contemporary fiction stories that you can recommend?

A book you bought but will never read OR a library book you borrowed but returned unread?

Gamechanger- L.X Beckett

I started this and don’t remember why I didn’t finish it. I returned it to the library without finishing it. I think part of the reason why is because I got busy or maybe I wasn’t in the mood for it? There were some interesting elements in here and it was set in an interesting world, with diverse characters, but I put it down for whatever reason. I might go back to this at some point, but for now, it shall remain unfinished.

A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started and have since DNF’ed?

The Cruel Prince- Holly Black

Kind of going off the other question from earlier, I don’t plan on reading the rest of the series because it just didn’t interest me enough. It just wasn’t for me.

A new release you have no interest in reading?

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories- Holly Black

I think the fact that I didn’t like the first book in this series is going to explain why I’m not interested in the new entry to the series.

What are your answers! I want to know! Post them below or post the link to your Anti-TBR Tag in the comments.
