Hello beautiful booknerds
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.
Here is my Top 10 Tuesday list of Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why. in no particular order.
1- Queen of Shadows (THRONE OF GLASS #4) by Sarah J. Maas
Why I am avoiding it? because I have to reread the first 3 books, it been a long time since I read them, and reading 7 whole books is time consuming.
2- Magic Study (POISON STUDY #2) by Maria V. Snyder
Why I am avoiding it? I think there is a character that I loved so much in the first book may not be in this book.
3- War Storm (RED QUEEN #4) by Victoria Aveyard
Why I am avoiding it? I read the first couple of pages of this book, and kinda made me a little dissapointed, so now I am trying to lower my expectations, because whenever I try to read it, I get pissed and end up closing the book.
4- Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC ICONS #1) by Leigh Bardugo
Why I am avoiding it? the fact that a 3 amazing authors that I admire each wrote a book in a series about superheros haven’t fully sunk in yet, I love superheros and it kinda weird that authors I know and love are writing about them, I would never look at these superheros the same way again. after I read the series I’m gonna associate this series with the actual superheros, I may never be able to watch their movies again.
5- Three Dark Crowns (THREE DARK CROWNS #1) by Kendare Blake
Why I am avoiding it? it has so much hype around, also my expectations are so high.
6- Passenger (PASSENGER #1) by Alexandra Bracken
Why I am avoiding it? I read books about time travel before and they disappointed me, I’m worried this will be the same.
7- The Dream Thieves (THE RAVEN CYCLE #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
Why I am avoiding it? I read the first book and it disappointed me, but I do like the characters so I want to give it another chance, and I already have purchased the whole series, I purchased them before I started reading the first book, it never crossed my mind at the time that I may not enjoy it.
8- Caraval (CARAVAL #1) by Stephanie Garber
Why I am avoiding it? I heard so much mixed things about this series, to me it sounded good, but I don’t like to read hyped books, I try so hard to lower my expectations, mostly I’m good, unfortunately I’m so hyped to read it,and my hopes are too high I don’t think it cloud meet my expectations.
9- Fireblood (FROSTBLOOD SAGA #2) by Elly Blake
Why I am avoiding it? I nearly forgot everything from the first book, even though I remember enjoying it so much, to complete the series I have to reread the first book, and I’m worried if I do reread it, I may not like it as much.
10- The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser
Why I am avoiding it? This book is translated, in my experience, reading a book it it’s original language is always better, sometimes translators change things or change the writing style sometimes. the premise of this book sounds so interesting.
