This is part of Top 10 Tuesday, which is run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today’s Top 10 Tuesday calls for some books you’re not interested in reading. So, I’m going to team my answers up with another bookish meme – the Down The TBR Hole.
This is a challenge started by Lia from Lost in a Story. The aim is to cull ten books from your Goodreads TBR and free yourself up for the books you actually do want to read.
So, the rules are:
- Go to your Goodreads TBR shelf.
- List it in ascending order.
- Pick the first five/ten books and decide whether you want them to stay or go.
For quite a long time, I was a little off with e books. For me, they didn’t feel the same as holding a real paperback book in my hands, and it was as if some of the magic had been taken away.
My tablet came pre-loaded with Google Books, and I’d been on the Book Store to download a couple of my favourite free books. I hadn’t yet bought and paid for anything though.
When it comes to reading, I like things to be just so. I’m quite meticulous about my books and my reading habits, and I like things to be in order.
I may be a massive bookworm, but there are some books that even I couldn’t get through. There’s no book too long, but there can be a book too tedious.
Marking a book as DNF, or did not finish, is almost like admitting defeat. There can be so many reasons why you would abandon a book halfway through – maybe you couldn’t get into the story, or perhaps it was just too long for your concentration to hold at the time.
Whatever reason, these are some of the books I’ve closed the cover on long before the final page. If I can’t get into it after three reading attempts, our relationship comes to an end.

This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.
Blurb: Life as the undercover daughter of a rock god isn’t going to be easy. How will Jessie adjust to her old boring life again after spending her summer living it up with her dad in LA? With tough decisions ahead (and not just choosing between two hot boys), can she cope juggling her two very different lives?
Summer may be over, but Jessie’s story is just beginning…
