Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Series I Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for June 26th, 2018 is: Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish. As I’ve already talked about similar topics in previous TTT posts, I thought I’d change the prompt to talk about some extremely well-known series that I just haven’t gotten around to. There was a period of around two years (2013-2014) where I just stopped reading fiction and lost touch with new releases. I also didn’t read the hottest new books till 2017 started. So, I’ve accumulated a backlog of famous series and I really want to get to them all some day. I know I’m going to get a lot of comments that will have reactions of shock and outrage, but I just want to tell you that I’m trying my best to have a mix of backlist books and new releases, so they have a solid place on my TBR. To make the post a bit more interesting, I’m going to state the reason why I want to read it (other than everyone I know raving about it of course) and what I will rate the series as a whole.

Top Three Thursdays #24 – Genres I Avoid

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

The topic for today (2/11/17) is: Genres I Don’t Prefer to Read

‘Tis the season of Halloween and pumpkin lanterns have taken over my social media feeds. However, it is not my cup of tea. Today I’m going to tell you about the kind of books that I prefer to pass over. But before you proceed, I’d just like to make it explicitly clear that just because I don’t like certain topics in books doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to like them or that I’m deriding your interests. If you’re not a fan of whatever I like to read, that is perfectly fine as well. Please remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
