Top Ten Books I’ve Lost Interest In

Posted February 19, 2018 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 29 Comments

This week’s topic is about the books you used to be interested in but have changed your mind about, for one reason or another. Perhaps your reading tastes or personal interests have changed. Maybe you read things in reviews that made you decide it wasn’t a book for you. Who knows why we change our minds on books like these?

Today I’m sharing some of the more popular books I once wanted to read, but have changed my mind about. Feel free to talk me out of my decisions and pitch these books to me if you think I need to read them! Most of these I lost interest in for no real reason other than I no longer liked the sound of the synopsis. If there was a deeper reason I’ll include it. lol.

1. In Honor by Jessi Kirby

2. This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

3. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I heard where the series went (mainly a spoiler for how the final book ends), and it killed any interest I had in continuing.

4. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Too heavy for me. It sounds really depressing and I read to be happy.

5. Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
I picked this up at ALA and had not heard anything about it. There was no series title, and the synopsis was vague. I’m not a fan of paranormal, and I’ve never liked afterlife storylines either. I didn’t realize until reviews started surfacing that these elements are a part of the story, and I kind of deflated. I never would have picked this up if I’d known. lol.

6. My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill
I loved Meant to Be, but then I did not like Being Sloane Jacobs and The Trouble with Destiny was horrible. I’ve kind of given up on the author, and it makes me really sad.

7. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

8. The Body Electric by Beth Revis
I’ve gotten pretty picky with my sci-fi.

9. Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales
It just sounds like it’s full of too many deep issues…

Ok, there you hate it… Have I lost interest in a book you love? Tell me why I should read it! Am I better off without any of these? Throw your opinions at me!

  1. The only ones I read here were Insurgent and Mortal Danger. I actually enjoyed the Divergent series. I’m weird I guess. Lol! Luckily I was able to avoid all spoilers for the series. Mortal Danger was pretty good! I finally finished that trilogy last year. It’s definitely got a strong paranormal vibe, so if that isn’t your thing, best to avoid it!

    Here’s my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. There are a few titles on your list that I read and enjoyed (This Song Will Save Your Life and Love Letters to the Dead, both are emotional reads) and read and disliked (Insurgent- but not because of the spoiler, but because it was poorly written and the whole reason behind the world was so… ridiculous). Sometimes I get so excited over a title, but the mood just passes. There’s just too many books I’m still excited to read to make time for books I’m just meh about.

  3. Divergent was enjoyable, but the books got worse and worse as I went on. I really wish that it was just a standalone novel, or at the worst, two books (there were a few interesting things in the other books).

  4. I dropped the Divergent series from my TBR after that spoiler too. I was kind of on the fence with it after finishing the first book, and that spoiler clInched it. The Body Electric was another one I was really excited for at the time, but once it came out I lost interest.

  5. Love Letters was happy and sad. I read it 4 years ago, but remember feeling hopeful at the end. If I knew then how the Divergent series was going to end, I would have quit that series too. To go from ah-mazing to that, such a disappointment. My Unscripted Life was cute, not amazing, but a fun read. I have the Sales books on my shelve as well, and was totally thinking of reading them since she has a new release due for this year.

  6. I actually loved My Unscripted Life. I finished on a flight from Atlanta to LA with time to spare because I could not put it down. The main character and her best friend were very much like myself and a friend from high school. I made her read it because it was so like us, and she is not a big YA person and liked it. I liked it better than Meant to Be, but I also liked Being Sloane Jacobs more than Meant to Be. I have not read The Trouble with Destiny, so I cannot say how it compares to that.

    A wise choice to pass on In Honor! There is a book I thought I would love, but I couldn’t stand the guy on the trip and he ruined the whole story for me.
