Popular Books I Haven’t Read…

I do read a lot, but there are quite a few books that I still haven’t read yet that everybody else already has…for some I have valid reasons why I haven’t read them but for other’s I don’t. Anyways, here are the popular books that I haven’t yet read!

Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyers – Okay, I have read the first book, Twilight, but I would say that rather than reading it I skimmed it…I just wasn’t that into the story and found the writing really plain and boring! I do have the entire series so maybe some day I will give it another try, but at the moment, I don’t see myself continuing on with the series soon.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – Everybody has read this book and has said it is so good but yet, I still haven’t read it! I did buy it this month though so I will eventually read it. The Book Thief seems like such a powerful and enriching book that I am really excited to read and I am almost positive I will love it just as much as everyone else seems to.

Passengers by Alexandra Bracken – Last year this book had a lot of hype around it, and it still does, which is why I think I didn’t enjoy the bits I read as much as I thought I would. I read about 100 pages of it but honestly, those 100 pages were extremely difficult for me to get through. I found the main character really boring and the entire book just didn’t grip me in the way I expected it too. I thought it was because time travel wasn’t my thing, but then I read Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier which is another time travel based book and I loved it! I will pick it up again in the future, but I don’t know if it will be this year.

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Aime Kaufman – This is a super popular sci-fi book that is told in a multimedia format which looks really, really cool. I do want to read this book and the only excuse I have for why I haven’t read it is simply because I just haven’t picked it up. Hopefully I will give it a read soon though!

Uglies Series by Scott Westerfield – Uglies is a dystopian set series which has a pretty interesting plotline that intrigues me. I picked the first book up earlier this month and do intend on reading it sometime this year! I have heard mixed reviews about this series but as always, you have to read it before you judge it, but I am hoping that I do enjoy it.

Those are some of the popular books I haven’t read yet and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to comment some of the popular books you haven’t read, and also check out my last post: Reading/Writing Update!

 

 

Top 5 Least Favourite Book-to-Movie Adaptations

Hey guys! I just wanted to say that these are just my own personal opinions so please don’t take it too seriously! Comment some of your least favourite book-to-movie adaptations!

The Fault in Our Stars – I am okay with this movie, but I was a bit disappointed with this movie. The book wasn’t my favourite either but I was really hoping the movie would be much better just because they had AMAZING actors but what can you do 🙂

Insurgent – I loved Divergent but Insurgent was kind of boring in my opinion. I am able to watch it from time to time but when I went watched it in the theatres I actually fell asleep oops…

Beautiful Creatures – I haven’t read this book but I don’t think I will just because the movie was pretty bad and kind of tainted any good review I had on it. The acting was just really weird, and the effects were kind of bad…I’m sure the books are better though!

Eclipse – I really enjoyed Twilight the most out of these and enjoyed Eclipse the least…I just felt that nothing really happened and it was a bit of an annoying movie honestly…

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief – I think we can all agree that this was a pretty terrible book-to-movie adaptation but the actors were really good. I actually enjoy watching this movie every once and a while but I have to make sure I separate it from the books.

Those are a few of my least favourite book-to-movie adaptations. Please no hate these are just my personal opinions and honestly I don’t hate any of these! I just don’t like them as much as others.

 

Books I Own but Haven’t Read

Here is a list of all the books I own but just haven’t read, not because they are boring but because I keep putting them off for new books I get but I think we all have that problem.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. I am not entirely sure what this is about but I know it is some sort of contemporary book. I will get to this eventually but it is not on the top of my list to read at the moment so I am not sure when that will be.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I am currently reading this book and loving it so it will be off this list pretty soon! Highly recommend it if you love Harry Potter.

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E Pearson. This is the second book in the Kiss of Deception series and while I really enjoyed the first book, this book just started off with a slow start and I wasn’t able to get into it. Hopefully if I pick it up again, read more and be able to get into the book.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. I just recently bought this book and I am planning on reading it sometime in April. I heard it is a bit slower compared to the first book which I enjoyed but I am only hoping that I will like this book just as much.

Four by Veronica Roth. I started this book (or is it a novella?) two years ago and I just found Four’s point of view very boring but maybe if it I try reading it now it will be more appealing, fingers crossed.

Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. This is the only Cassandra Clare book I have not completed but only because I got distracted with her Infernal Devices trilogy and never got around to finishing this book but I will read it!

New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I have only read Twilight it the series and it was okay but I never had any motivation to continue on with the series but I think eventually I will finish it just because it is so popular.

Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead. My cousin recommended this series to me and it is loved by a lot of people so I thought I would give the series a shot! I haven’t gotten around to it yet but I will soon. I don’t read much vampire based books so this should be good!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas. This is a novella to Sarah J Maas’s Throne of Glass series which is amazing. I have heard this novella is really good so I am planning on reading it before  I pick up her newest book, Queen of Shadows.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. When I picked this book up, I just wasn’t in the mood for high fantasy so when I attempted to read it I just wasn’t in the right mood so I never finished it. Again, I hope to get to this soon since the next book in this series is coming out very soon.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I just have heard great things about this book and I saw it for a very cheap price so I thought why not? Sadly, I haven’t been able to pick it up because of all the other books I have to read…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I have heard so much about this series and it makes me extremely excited to read it! This book is very different from what I usually read so it will be a great way to get a look at other ‘types’ of YA books. I am planning on reading this over my Spring Break which is in the next 2 weeks!

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I bought this book on my tablet because it was only $2 but I haven’t tried reading it yet. I don’t know when I am going to read this book but hopefully soon and I really would like to love it!

Passengers by Alexandra Bracken. Okay, so everyone seems to love this book but I am halfway through and I am very bored…I put this book down a month ago after trying to read it but I just can’t get into it but I am determined to finish it!

So those are all the books on my shelf that I have not read and it actually isn’t a whole lot considering I have just over 100 books! Anyway I hope you enjoyed reading this and comment below some books you own but haven’t read yet either!

PS: A Lady Midnight book review will be coming soon!
