1. I'm not sure that I want to read....The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling: Most of you probably know I recently started to read the Harry Potter series (I've only finished book 1) so I don't really have the attachment to JK Rowling like most people do but I've heard such mixed things about the adult book that she wrote. I think the only reason it's on my radar is BECAUSE it's written by JK Rowling and I probably wouldn't even have looked at it if I passed it by in a store.
Seconded by Daisy
2. I'm not sure that I want to read....the rest of the Eve trilogy by Anna Carey: I enjoyed book 1 despite problems with it but it's been a couple years and I forget what happened honestly and I heard not so great things about the rest of the trilogy.
3. I'm not sure that I want to read....the Lord of the Rings books: I love the movies and I'm semi-interested in the books but THEY ARE SO LONG and that's a huge commitment. Maybe I'd be better off to just stinking to the movies (SOMETHING THAT IS RARE FOR ME).
4. I'm not sure I want to read.... My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult: this book scares me cause it deals with a sick child and I just can't, I tend to avoid books like this. But I feel like I should because I want to watch the movie (maybe) and I can't without reading the book first.
5. I'm not sure I want to read.... John Green's other books: so I read The Fault in Our Stars recently and it was really good, but I've heard his other books are pretty similar or have pretty similar characters and I'm not sure that's going to work for me.
6. I'm not sure I want to read.... The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley: I love anything to do with King Arthur, but a while ago I read some really disturbing things about the author dealing with child abuse and I'm just not sure I can read one of her books and not be influenced by this knowledge.
7. I'm not sure I want to read.... So many of the last books in a series: like Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins, Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, Split Second by Kasie West, Rise by Anna Carey, Sacrifice by Cayla Kluver, Black Heart by Holly Black... I don't deal well with series ending, I've talked about this fear before, it's scary.
9. I'm not sure I want to read... The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: TEARS. I do not read books to cry or be sad. Why would I deliberately torture myself with an overflow of intensely depressing emotions when I can come up with plenty of reasons to feel those emotions as a result of my own life? I know people say it's beautiful and amazing, but I won't look beautiful or feel amazing while reading it, so I think I'll pass. Talk me out of it if you wish. :)
10. I'm not sure I want to read... Insurgent or Allegiant by Veronica Roth: I liked Divergent enough, but I've heard so many complaints about Insurgent and witnessed rage over Allegiant. And I accidentally saw a major spoiler for Allegiant which made me think, "Ok, what is even the point of this whole thing?" I'm over the hype of this trilogy, and just want to move on.
What about you guys? Have you read any of our picks?
