I was rewatching old T5Ws (Top 5 Wednesdays) and I found this one that I had somehow skipped over. This is probably my favorite T5W so far, because I'm someone who is really picky with books, especially the ones everyone loved. For some reason, I can't get myself to get into, nor finish some of the most popular books around booktube, and this is why I decided to, although it is risky, write this post!
1) Rebels: City of Indra, by Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Not being able to finish this book wasn't a shocker to anyone, let's be real. The book was poorly written, and although had an interesting premise and had lots of potential, the way the characters, the world, and the concept was introduced was so bad I couldn't pass the first 50 pages. I honestly still pick it up from time to time, but always end up putting it back down. It's a shame, because the cover is probably one of the most gorgeous covers ever.
2) The Maze Runner, by James Dashner
I rarely talk about this series on my blog for the simple reason that I had never finished the first book. I'm not sure why I didn't finish it, however, because I don't remember it being particularly bad or boring. I think that I had found a better book to read while I was reading this, and never thought that it was important enough for me to pick it up again.
3) Insurgent, by Veronica Roth
Most of you guys know that I will never be finishing this series, ever. I simply find it so overrated, and I don't think the writing is good, nor do I like the characters. The thing with this series is that there are a lot of things I absolutely adore about it, but also a lot that I simply hate about it, therefore I can never decide if I like it or not. I think I skim read the last 50 pages of Insurgent, simply because I had gotten so far and could not just leave it there, but I honestly don't care that much for this series anymore.
4) Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
I have a good explanation for why I never finished this book, and it is because I read it at a time where I didn't feel like reading, nor did I really understand literature back then. However, surprisingly, I never thought of picking it up again, and although I really should, I simply can't get myself to do so.
5) City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare
I could not get past the first few pages of this, and I'm so glad I didn't purchase the entire series at once. I really hope to get into this series however, because of how great their fanbase is and whatnot. I'd love to get into urban fantasy like this one, but for the moment, it really isn't for me.
I hope you enjoyed reading about these rather popular books that I will not, and was not able to finish. Hopefully, some of you feel the same!
Thanks so much for reading,
