TOP TEN TUESDAY #41: Books I'm No Longer Interested in Reading


Formerly hosted by Jamie, Jana and Lauren of BrokeandBookish.com, Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that presents top ten lists on Tuesdays that promotes favorite bookish themes. Since BrokeandBookish.com had officially shut down in January 2018, Jana from ThatArtsyReaderGirl has offered to continue the series on her blog. 

How it works:


I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
This week's topic:  Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading





10. My Thoughts by John Stafford Reid -  My uncle John wrote this little poetry book, so I hope he's not going to be too mad at me not interested in this anymore! OOPS! 

9. Signs of Attraction by Laura Brown - I initially wanted to read this for the ASL culture, but mehh... not so much anymore. 



8. The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois -  I thought of adding this in my TBR because I'd remembered this author from my college sociology class back in 2012, but since I'm out of school, I don't need it anymore. 

7. Black Iris by Elliot Wake




6. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

5. Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson




4. Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley -  I've heard the lesbian/LGBT representation is pretty bad here. 

3. Johnny and Jamal by K.M. Breakey -  I got this ARC from the author who had emailed me about it last year, but the truth is, if you have to tell me that your book "has diversity" in it, it probably doesn't. Plus, I'm starting to get annoyed with random authors contacting me about their books and explaining it in ways that seems like door-to-door salesman, like no. 



2. Stef Soto, Taco Queen by Jennifer Torres

1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber -  I've heard a lot of mixed to negative reviews, and while I don't rely on reviews to make reading choices for me, I still take them into consideration. 

I think it's good to talk about the books that you're no longer interested in, because we as a community talk about the books that are coming in, or the books we cant wait to dive into. But we hardly talk about the ones we just don't care for anymore. It gives you perspective on how to let go.
