Today, I'm taking part int he Books I'll Probably Never Read Book Tag, which I stole from Kate of Reading Through Infinity - check out her answers here.

I'm thinking that while this is going to be fun, it might also make me feel a little guilty? We'll see, I guess! Onwards!

A Hyped Book You Are Not Interested in Reading

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. I know, I know! I adored The Hate U Give* so much, so I have been umming and aahing about On the Come Up for ages now, but the premise - a teenage rapper trying to get further with her rapping - just doesn't interest me at all. Partly because I don't like rap, but also because I just tend not to enjoy most books about those who are musically inclined trying to make the big time. I've read them, and I don't enjoy them. I know On the Come up is about more than that, there's more going on, but that seems to be the focus, and it's just not something I want to read about.

Series You Won’t be Starting/Finishing

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

The Folk of the Air trilogy by Holly Black. I am completely fae-ed out. I have absolutely zero interest in reading anything new with fae in ever again. There were a number of books I read way back when I first started blogging featuring fae - like the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr - but I just got to a point where I just didn't really like them any more. These creatures do not do it for me at all.

Of course I'm not saying there should be no more books about fae - what there needs to be is more books written about fae by people of colour - I am not one of those people who claims that X kind of book has been done to death and we don't need any more, especially when authors of colour have had no or very little chance to have books written by them. These books should be written and published, because there is an audience for them! I, unfortunately, am no longer part of that audience.

A Classic You Aren’t Interested In

The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells

How about all of them? Not only do I really struggle to read classics - I just can't get my head around the langauge - I also have very little interest in those stories unless they're made into TV/movie adaptations. I just don't care. As I have to pick one, I'm going to go with The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells, because not only is it a classic, but it's also sci-fi, and it also features an alien invasion. That's like three nopes for me.

A Genre You Never Read

Perfect Remains by Helen Fields

This is a tricky one, because I've read - I think - all genres within YA, though there are several that aren't my favourite, historical fiction and sci-fi among them.

But if we're talking about "adult" books, I'll probably go with crime fiction. Although I love crime/mysteries in YA, I am seriously put off by the covers in crime fiction. They look really dark, and make me think they're going to be extremely violent and bloody, and it's a solid nope from me, thank you.

A Book on Your Shelves You Will Probably Never Actually Read

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson. My best mate absolutely loves this book, and although it sounds absolutely nothing like my cup of tea - it's full of drug use, and no - my best mate raved and raved, and implored me to read it, so I caved and bought it. But I cannot imagine ever reading it.
