Discussion Post: 7 Popular Books I Will Probably Never Read

Hey Pals!! So, today I’m going to be sharing 5 Popular Books that I have No Interest in Reading. Without much ado, let’s get started. Yeah, cause I really don’t know what else I can do with the intro πŸ˜‚πŸ˜.

Note: I do not mean to insult the following books or their authors. I do not mean to hurt anyone’s opinions. Also, this is a discussion post, so feel free to share your views in the comments.

1: The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

This was one of the cringiest films I’ve ever watched and being someone who barely dislikes movies, it says a lot when I say that absolutely I hated it. This movie was just ugh. It was so clichΓ© and so obvious. It was worse than just the normal clichΓ© that we usually see in contemporary stories where the authors or directors can make the story better through a fine plot progression but in this movie, none of that! I found it super awful and cringey so I’m never reading this book. Rant over.

2: 50 Shades of Grey by E L James

Don’t really need a reason for this one now, do I? I am never watching the movie and never reading the book. I want to stay away from the kind of “stuff” this book offers for as long as I can, and I can do that pretty easily considering I have endless books on my TBR.

3: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I have read one book by this author- An Enchantment of Ravens, which I DNFed after reading half of it. The reason is that this author has a very metaphorical writing, and it’s very descriptive when it comes to nature, and I personally do not enjoy beautiful writing in books. I love it in poems, but in books, nope! So I to conclude, I know that I won’t enjoy this book, so why waste my time on it?

4: The Heir by Kiera Cass

This is the sequel (though I like to call it companion novel) to The One by Kiera Cass. It follows the story of the daughter of the main character and I just don’t wanna read it because for some reason, I feel like I won’t like it. Firstly, this book is kind of unnecessary, and it’s also not loved by the majority of fans of the original trilogy. I remember absolutely loving The Selection trilogy, and its characters, but from what I know, those characters don’t even play a major role in this book, which I don’t find interesting.

5: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson

Okay so, we all know that this is a truly popular motivational novel. And that’s basically it! The reason why I am not interested in this book. Because I don’t freaking read self-help books. They sound soooo real, and I read to escape real, not to find myself immersed in it.

6: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

From what I know, this book deals with some very mature topics like suicide, mental health, and a lot more. And it’s also a pretty sad and depressing read as people say it, so I’m.not really inclined towards reading it. I have to admit that I’m kind of intrigued by it but I don’t think my little brain would be able to handle such stuff so I’ll just avoid it for now.

7: Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

The reason I’m not going to be reading this book is that I wasn’t that big a fan of The Hunger Games trilogy or its prequel, both being written by the same author. Plus I don’t like the cover of this book, or the synopsis (which I haven’t even read by the way πŸ™‚) so I will probably never give it a shot. Plus, committing to another series when I’ve got so many unfinished ones already is pretty hard. Do you feel the same way πŸ€”? Do you ever feel that you want to read a book but can’t commit to another series? ‘Cause I certainly do.

So, that was all for me. What are your thoughts on this? Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them? Should I maybe give any of them a shot? Let me know all in the comments πŸ˜€.


Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

    1. *damn WP deleted half of my comment πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ*

      What I meant to continue in the comment was that the Netflix adaptation of 13 reasons why is equally inaccurate.

      Oh, and the books that I’ve regretted reading are “The White Tiger” and “Emma”: especially the latter

      1. Lol, it’s okay xD.
        Well, I guess I am never watching the show either then πŸ˜‚.
        Omg, I remember listening to the audiobook of Emma and it was kinda weird, so I had to DNF it. I might read it someday tho…..was it that bad πŸ˜‚?

  2. I laughed out loud when I saw fifty shades on your list. I also screamed: “Don’t worry. You are not missing out on *anything!*” You don’t like the Hunger Games? I think it’s pretty good; why so? Great post!

    1. πŸ˜‚ I know right!
      I really enjoyed the first book really, but then it kinda well downhill, and I just hated practically everything about Mockingjay for some reason πŸ˜…, I wish the series had a better ending. I am taking it that you are a true fan of THG?
      Thanks a lot, Maya πŸ˜€

  3. 13 reasons why is different, yes it can be sad at times but then it sorta changes your perspective about the whole thing..I think you should read that….
    Otherwise, i totally agree about self-help books. We read to keep reality away and that’s the whole motive!
    Nice list, Nehal

  4. I’ve only read 13 Reasons Why from this list, and the book is a lot less graphic and sad than the show. I can see why a lot of people stay away from it, there’s a lot of stuff in that book, and it has basically every trigger warning there could be. It does give you perspective though I think, and I can see how it could actually help a lot of people.

  5. Haha! I’m just amused at you admitted unashamedly that one reason you won’t read Gregor and Overlander is from the cover! I feel like so many book nerds (me included…no matter how hard I try) never admit their aversions to books often times include a dislike for the cover. πŸ™‚ Cool post!

  6. The only book on here I’ve read it Sorcery of Thorns. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t a new favorite or anything.
    I definitely agree about staying away from gross stuff in books! I won’t even read a lot of YA books for that reason (cough, Throne of Glass, cough cough).
    I liked the Hunger Games! Idk about that other series, but I would be willing to read it someday.

    1. That’s exactly why I am not reading it, cause I don’t think it’ll be anything special for me either. Ah I know right. Thankfully, I was so in a slump while reading crown of midnight that I had to dnf it and now I’m sure I’m not reading the rest of the series either πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜‚. Do tell me how you like Gregor if you do, maybe I might just as well pick it up.

  7. Ooh I really like your choices! I don’t plan on reading 13 reasons why either, I mean maybe I will in the future, but not planning to read it any time soon.
    So agreeing on your opinion on self help books. I feel that too, but my parents are like you need em for surviving in the real world, and I’m like can’t we just look escape to narnia or hogwarts or somethingπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ.
