Let’s Be Honest, I’m Never Gonna Read These Books!

Greetings readers!

Recently, I have been staring at my shelves and have come to startling conclusion. I have so many books that I am just never going to read. I spent money on books THAT I AM NEVER GOING TO READ. So naturally I berate myself for being not very smarticle-particle about some of my previous financial endeavours. That is to say, I am not necessarily unhauling these books…but it is probably a sign that I should unhaul them. We shall see what future me decides.

Now I’m mainly gonna talk about books on my shelves since I know if I scroll through Goodreads…this list will get too long!

It’s time to face the truth….

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark, #1)

No interest to read it. At least I didn’t spend money on it. I actually got to meet Veronica when she came to Toronto for her tour and my friend won a contest so she added me as her plus one. But I honestly didn’t want to read it from the start so…………………………….probably not gonna happen. And it’s personalized to me…oops

The Orphan Queen and The Mirror King by Jodie Meadows

The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen, #1)  The Mirror King (The Orphan Queen, #2)

What an absolute mistake in buying the second book. I thought book 1 was okay (so ha! I did read one of these at least) and immediately after book 2 came out, I decided to buy it. But it has been sitting on my shelf, unread, collecting dust for more than two years??? Bad financial decision. And I don’t remember much from book one anyways so that would mean a reread and I just do not have the time or energy for it…ugh what have I done! *face palm*

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)

Let’s be honest. I hold a grudge against this book because I chose to buy it over Cinder. And well we all know what happened after that, don’t we. I am probably never gonna read it and I still feel so dumb for buying it! I haven’t even watched the movie and the sole reason why I chose this book over Cinder was for the epic movie tie-in cover. I don’t know what past-Rendz was thinking.

ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas (And future SJM works)


People, it’s not going to happen. And I feel so dumb for spending money on them too.


I have just lost all interest in it. Okay…maybe not all the interest, but I am over the hype. I am over it. I don’t even think your precious Rhysand would make it on to my lists because I am a petty bich and let’s just say SJM and I don’t have a good history with shipping ships. (See my thoughts on her ToG series) Kingdom of Ash will probably be the last book I read by her (oh wait no, I have to read Catwoman)…so I don’t know. Maybe I will read these, but I don’t want to right now!

Don’t come for me in the comments, I know how much you guys adore this series and hey that’s awesome…I just personally am losing interest fast.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

It’s never gonna happen. Don’t even try to hold out hope for me! Sorry! Just, nope!

These are just a couple of the books I found. There are a lot of contemporaries on my shelf, and not the cute fluffy romance kind (which are the ones I go for), so those will probably be unhauled soon. I am trying to not be such a hoarder, I have issues okay!! I emotionally attach myself to all these books, even the unread ones. It’s really hard to let go. Especially when I spent money on them!

Let me know what you think? What books are you never going to read? Do you think I am making a mistake with any of these? (Cue the ACOTAR and HP hoard of comments) What do you do with books you unhaul? Sell them? Trade them? Donate them?

Also, I just wanted to let you all know that I will not be as active in the next coming weeks! It’s exam time and I am in crunch mode! I wish you all the best, I shall see you mid-December!!!

Happy reading!

  2. I get hate for deciding never to read any SJM too! She’s just not for me, which is totally fine! I was debating reading Enders Game but I’ve finally decided it’s just never going to happen, I haven’t even bought the book yet but I almost buy it all the time.

    1. I will never hate you for not wanting to read a certain author (especially if that author is SJM). Trust me I get hate for not liking her books…(you should read some of the comments on my reviews of her books phew!)
      Yeah…Ender’s Game…it’s not gonna happen for either of us I guess! XD It’s time to end the almost-buy it. And I am telling you this from personal experience…don’t do it! XD

      1. Yes! In a book group on FB I mentioned that I tried to read one of her books and hated it and I was attacked so much! For me one of the best things about this community is being able to discuss different books and that kind of hate really brings me down.
        And yeah I think I’m going to finally strike it from my TBR all together!

  3. I’m in the middle of re-reading Harry Potter and it makes me so sad that you’re never going to read it. 😢 But, I also understand. It took me forever to decide to read it considering that I didn’t want to ruin the movies for me and while the reason might be different for you, I get it. Also, I’m probably never going to read any SJM books. I’m just not interested in them lol.

  4. HEY RENDZ!!!! I’m so glad to be back! I missed your posts ❤ I don’t really care about the remaining books on the list except Harry Potter. You still aren’t interested! 😭😭

  5. You bought Ender’s instead of CINDER. Are you even Rendz? Did someone possess your body? (It was the cover, wasn’t it? That Cinder foot.) EVIL.

    I don’t think I’ve read any of these books, so I can’t really weigh in on either side. Although Mandy and I are gearing up for a Harry Potter readathon sometime in 2019. (Probably just book one, Mandy can never commit for sequels.) And I am DONE with the ACOTAR fandom, it is not for me. I can tell I would not enjoy.

    Good luck with the exams! Freedom approaches!!!!

    1. It was the cover…………….the foot got to me. *hangs head in shame*
      Have fun with your HP marathon (of at least one book)!
      And yeah ACOTAR…probs not gonna happen for me either or if I do commit, I won’t be happy with them (bc I am petty).
      Thanks, Sha!! I’m about to head into the studying hole!

  6. Oooh, Rendz, I certainly have a lot of these. I had to do a bigger unhaul in the past year, but past us just really had some questionable thoughts. I’m with you about ACOTAR. Skip. Take some pretty book pics. Regift. But skip. 😉 And it is super hard to get rid of those personalized books that you have that there is no excitement to read. I have a few of those, and it is so hard. And yes, Ender’s Game is so much not goodness since it was chosen over the beloved Cinder. Wonderful post, Rendz, and at least they all made a great post!! 🙂

    1. I’m staring at those ACOTAR books rn Mandy! It’s just so weird. Sometimes I want to read them because I want to get the inside jokes and whatever but then again do I really want to waste my time??? I’ll probably sell them eventually.
      Yeah the personalized books are the ones I have the worst attachment issues with XD
      And then there is Ender’s Game…………………………
      *Oprah shrug gif*
      Thanks Mandy!!!
