- Anything Harry Potter. Harry Potter came out when I was in high school and I dismissed it as being too young for me. I was at this pretentious age where I didn't read anything unless the author was dead (meaning a classic- Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie). I seriously thought if it wasn't a classic, it wasn't worth my time. Man, was I a little book snob! I do plan on reading Harry Potter some day though, hopefully soon.
I just finished watching Firefly for the second time, sorry.
- Twilight anything. I think this whole series has been way over exposed
Like, I feel like I know the story without ever cracking the book.
- The Divergent series. If a book is made into a movie and I haven't read
it yet, the odds of me reading the book go down tremendously. If I was
smart, I could probably make some type of formula to show this, but
just take my word for it.
- Anything Nicholas Sparks. Ugh. I saw A Walk to Remember and The Notebook, but his writing is a little too sappy for my liking, and the fact that someone usually dies doesn't earn any bonus points with me.
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I originally dismissed this as a straight romance novel, which I usually avoid like the plague, but the premise does sound intriguing. This one may get a read someday.
Okay, who doesn't want to be in a relationship with pizza?
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. If I had $1 for every time I stumble across this book at a garage sale, thrift shop, or used book store, I'd probably have $100 by now. And it's not like I'm opposed to reading it, it's just that every time I see a copy of it, it makes me want to read it less.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It's been on my reading list for years, and I've physically possessed a copy for over two of those years thanks to my Books'nBloggers swap with Jolene, yet it still is unread. Why? I have a feeling it's going to be soooo sad. But, I really do want to read it! And plan to some day. Hopefully soon.
- Anything by John Green. No Paper Towns, no Fault in Our Stars, nope. I think I view him as the young adult Nicholas Sparks, but I could be wrong. He may get a shot some day.
- Anything by Lee Child, James Patterson, Vince Flynn, Sandra Brown, or Danielle Steele. I have a tendency to keep away from the mass market paperback, so I've made it into my thirties, without reading some of the authors who probably move the most books.
- Anything by Charles Dickens. I know what I said in #1, but the truth is, I've never finished anything by Dickens. I've seen some movies, I've started some, but I've yet to get all the ways through a Dickens novel! Another to add to the book bucket list.
