Top Ten Tuesday

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.

Today’s topic is “Ten Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested in Reading.” This one is hard because I update my TBR constantly and I’ve already taken off the books I’m not interested in reading. I’m going to change it up a little bit. I’m going with series I’m no longer interested in continuing to read. Here’s my list:

What series are you no longer interested in continuing to read?

      Eh. I don’t think the publishers or the authors are greedy. I just think that they know kids love it and they can keep it going. I would too if I were in their shoes and still loved doing it.

      I actually liked Leven Thumps. I just don’t remember it because it’s been so long and I don’t want to read it again to read the next books in the series.

    I have such a hard time giving up on a series when I’ve invested time in the first book but it’s probably smart not to waste anymore time if you didn’t like it. You’re not going to read the rest of the Dune series anymore? Was it the recent reread that changed your mind or just your tbr list?

      Agreed. And, no, it’s not because of a recent reread. I’m afraid the rest of the series won’t live up to the awesomeness that I think is the first book and I don’t want them to ruin how much I love Dune. So, I’m stopping since the first book ends nicely.

    I haven’t read any of these series, but I agree that it’s hard at times to mark them off your list. However, it does free up space for something new!

    Dune didn’t work for me, I read it years ago but was never impressed enough to continue. I do wonder occasionally what the later books are like… but not enough to start the series again lol. And The Walking Dead comics have never appealed to me even though I do watch the show.

      Oh, my poor heart. 💔 I adore Dune. It’s my all-time favorite book. It’s for that reason I don’t want to read the rest of the series. I’m afraid my expectations are set way too high that I’ll be severely disappointed and it will ruin Dune for me.

    I read Leven Thumps years ago with my son — but he wasn’t interested enough to want to read more, and neither was I. I tend to walk away from series when there’s too much time in between books. If I have to wait years for a follow-up, chances are I’m never coming back.

      I understand. I don’t like waiting a long time in between sequels either. Although, that’s not really what turned me off of Level Thumps. I just lost interest. There are so many other things I want to read more.

    A few years ago I gave up almost every single series I was reading. I was so overwhelmed (I had counted and I was in hte middle of at 40 series!), forgetting large chunks of plots or disappointed in the endings.

    I still have a few books on my physical TBR that I kind of want to give up on – they’ve been there for years – but I bought them so I keep thinking one day… lol

      Oh wow! That’s a lot of series! And, I don’t blame you at all. I have quite a few unfinished ones, but not that many. I plan to finish a lot of them this year. Plan being the operative word.
