Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Hey guys I am so excited to do another Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. For this I decided to go through my past Down The TBR posts. I decided that would be helpful. Those posts have a lot of books I wanted to read but then I decided to remove from my list. So let’s dive in


If I StayIf I Stay By Gayle Foreman

Reason: I put this on my list because of how many people loved this book. I decided that after rereading the plot for it, it wasn’t the book for me. Maybe one day I will check it out. It’s just not really on my radar.

 

 

 


LolitaLolita By Vladimir Nabokov

Reason: This is a book I know is about a controversial topic. I don’t mind about the controversial topic. I just don’t think it’s something I really want to read about. This is a book I can see myself reading the summary of.

 

 

 


The Maze RunnerThe Maze Runner By James Dashner

Reason: I own the book. I tried reading it and I couldn’t get into it. I feel now I am pretty much past my dystopian phase I don’t want to try to reread it. I no longer have any interest in it.

 

 

 


41 The Book Thief

The Book Thief By Markus Zuask

Reason: I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book. It just isn’t my type of genre that I really would read. So I decided to remove it from my TBR.

 

 

 

 


Angels & DemonsAngels and Demons by Dan Brown

Reason: I saw the first movie of this series. I was thinking about reading the series and I just don’t have any interest in doing so.

 

 

 

 


The Stepford WivesThe Stepford Wives By Ira Levin

Reason: This is another book which I saw the movie before actually reading the book. I thought the movie was okay but could be interesting in book form. It didn’t seem like it was a very good book so I decided to pass.

 

 

 


Red RisingRed Rising By Pierce Brown

Reason: This is a book I have been hearing a lot of good things about. I know the author just came out with a new book. I know it’s a dystopian type book. I’m not really into dystopian books anymore.

 

 

 


Royal WeddingRoyal Wedding By Meg Cabot

Reason: So I told myself I would reread The Princess Diaries series before I read this one. I tried rereading them and I really couldn’t get into them at all. I use to read her Mediator series. She made an adult book for that. I didn’t really enjoy that. I felt the writing was trying way to hard. I didn’t enjoy it. So I decided I wasn’t going to bother with this one either.

 

 


The HeiressesThe Heiresses By Sarah Shepard

Reason: Sarah Shepard is one of those authors that’s my guilty pleasure. I’ve never finished a series by her even though I told myself I would. One day I will finish Pretty Little Liars. Anyway, this is a series she started a couple of years ago. I haven’t heard about this getting a book two yet. So I decided I’m not going to bother with this until I hear otherwise.

 

 


SnuffSnuff By Chuck Palahniuk

Reason: I have read a couple of Chuck’s books. He’s usually an author who I’ll buy if I don’t own the book. I was reading the books for this one and it just seemed like he was trying to hard. So I decided I’m just not going to bother with this one.

 

 

 


Have you guys read any of these books? Do you think I should add any of them back to my TBR?

What are some books you’ve recently decided you’re no longer interested in reading?

This week’s week’s theme is 10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR ListI want to know what books have piqued your interest lately from whatever genre you choose! So I decided to go with Thriller because that’s my favorite genre. I have been trying not to add too much to m TBR list but I have added some thrillers so I am excited to share my recent adds!


Emma in the NightEmma in the Night By Wendy Walker

Goodreads Synopsis: From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back…

One night five years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.


It's Always The HusbandIt’s Always The Husband By Michele Campbell

Goodreads Synopsis: Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny. They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, even though they are as different as three women can be. Twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge . . and someone else is urging her to jump.

How did things come to this?

As the novel cuts back and forth between their college years and their adult years, you see the exact reasons why these women love and hate each other—but can feelings that strong lead to murder? Or will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it’s always the husband?


Baby DollBaby Doll By Hollie Overton

Goodreads Synopsis: Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter Sky has been a captive her whole life. But one day their captor leaves the deadbolt unlocked.

This is what happens next…

…to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter…and to her captor.


 

I Found YouI Found You By Lisa Jewell

Goodreads Synopsis: A young bride, a lonely single mother, and an amnesiac man of dubious origin lie at the heart of New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell’s next suspenseful drama that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty and Paula Hawkins.

In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.

Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, twenty-one-year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.

Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just that he’s playing the role of protective older brother.

Two decades of secrets, a missing husband, and a man with no memory are at the heart of this brilliant new novel, filled with the “beautiful writing, believable characters, pacey narrative, and dark secrets” (London Daily Mail) that make Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.


The Crime WriterThe Crime Writer By Jill Dawson

Goodreads Synopsis: In 1964, the eccentric American novelist Patricia Highsmith is hiding out in a cottage in Suffolk, to concentrate on her writing and escape her fans. She has another motive too – a secret romance with a married lover based in London.

Unfortunately it soon becomes clear that all her demons have come with her. Prowlers, sexual obsessives, frauds, imposters, suicides and murderers: the tropes of her fictions clamour for her attention, rudely intruding on her peaceful Suffolk retreat. After the arrival of Ginny, an enigmatic young journalist bent on interviewing her, events take a catastrophic turn. Except, as always in Highsmith’s troubled life, matters are not quite as they first appear . . .

Masterfully recreating Highsmith’s much exercised fantasies of murder and madness, Jill Dawson probes the darkest reaches of the imagination in this novel – at once a brilliant portrait of a writer and an atmospheric, emotionally charged, riveting tale.


Best Day EverBest Day Ever By Kaira Rouda

Goodreads Synopsis: “I glance at my wife as she climbs into the passenger seat, and I am bursting with confidence. Today will be everything I’ve promised her…and more…”

Paul Strom has the perfect life: a glittering career as an advertising executive, a beautiful wife, two healthy boys and a big house in a wealthy suburb. And he’s the perfect husband: breadwinner, protector, provider. That’s why he’s planned a romantic weekend for his wife, Mia, at their lake house, just the two of them. And he’s promised today will be the best day ever.

But as Paul and Mia drive out of the city and toward the countryside, a spike of tension begins to wedge itself between them and doubts start to arise. How much do they trust each other? And how perfect is their marriage, or any marriage, really?

Forcing us to ask ourselves just how well we know those who are closest to us, Best Day Ever crackles with dark energy, spinning ever tighter toward its shocking conclusion. In the bestselling, page-turning vein of The Couple Next Door and The Dinner, Kaira Rouda weaves a gripping, tautly suspenseful tale of deception and betrayal dark enough to destroy a marriage…or a life.


Sometimes I LieSometimes I Lie By Alice Feeney

Goodreads Synopsis: My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:

1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.


 

 

Our Little Secerts

Our Little Secret By Roz Nay

Goodreads Synopsis: The detective wants to know what happened to Saskia, as if I could just skip to the ending and all would be well. But stories begin at the beginning and some secrets have to be earned.

Angela is being held in a police interrogation room. Her ex’s wife has gone missing and Detective Novak is sure Angela knows something, despite her claim that she’s not involved.

At Novak’s prodding, Angela tells a story going back ten years, explaining how she met and fell in love with her high school friend HP. But as her past unfolds, she reveals a disconcerting love triangle and a dark, tangled web of betrayals. Is Angela a scorned ex-lover with criminal intent? Or a pawn in someone else’s revenge scheme? Who is she protecting? And why?

Twisty and suspenseful, Our Little Secret is an intense cat-and-mouse game and a riveting thriller about the lies we tell others—and ourselves.


The Marriage PactThe Marriage Pact By Michelle Richmond

Goodreads Synopsis: Newlyweds Alice and Jake are a picture-perfect couple. Alice, once a singer in a well-known rock band, is now a successful lawyer. Jake is a partner in an up-and-coming psychology practice. Their life together holds endless possibilities. After receiving an enticing wedding gift from one of Alice s prominent clients, they decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact.
The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense. Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. . . .

Never mention The Pact to anyone.

Alice and Jake are initially seduced by the glamorous parties, the sense of community, their widening social circle of like-minded couples.
And then one of them breaks the rules.
The young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And The Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule.
For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.”


FracturedFractured By Catherine McKenzie

Goodreads Synopsis: Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who’s been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn’t know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.

After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie’s stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.
