Tag: Books I’ll (Probably) Never Read

My Writing Week (1)
Hello everyone,

I have seen this tag on some other book blogs recently and thought it would be a fun one to do. There are a lot of books that I will sadly never get around to reading, and here are some that I am rather less likely to pick up…

a really hyped book you’re not interested in reading

I know just how popular this one is in the bookish community and I have heard how captivating a character Evelyn Hugo is, but it just does not seem like the kind of book I would choose to read.

a series you won’t start/won’t be finishing

I have never read Twilight, and I am pretty sure I will never want to.

a classic you’re not interested in

There are a lot of classics that I would like to read some day, but Vanity Fair is not one of them.

a genre you never read

I generally don’t read romance, but I certainly stay away from erotica.

a book on your shelves you’ll probably never actually read

If I own a book, the chances are I will read it. I don’t think there are any books currently on my shelves that I will never get around to reading.

If you would like to do this challenge, then consider yourself tagged! Are there any books that you are unlikely to read? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Uuuuuh the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a surprise for me to see on this list! I read it before the hype got earth shattering and I have to say that it is amazing. Unbelievably good. I don’t usually read that kinds of books either but Evelyn Hugo nearly broke me 😂 However I definitely see how crazy the hype around it has been and it might be off putting! This was a cool tag, makes me think about what would I not read 🤔


    1. Yes I have heard so many great things about Evelyn Hugo. It is not the kind of book I usually read and I haven’t been that interested in reading it so far, but who knows? I might change my mind one day! Glad you enjoyed it!


  2. I definitely understand how you feel with reading very hyped books. It’s almost intimidating in case I don’t enjoy them which was why I was also hesitant to start Evelyn Hugo. It ended up really great so if you end up reading it (and no pressure!!) I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂

      1. I’ve been thinking about doing a reread of them to see if I would still enjoy them. Yes everyone’s tastes are different and I love that we can all talk about our different tastes and not put each other down for it.

  3. I thought the same thing about Evelyn Hugo last year… and now I’m buddy reading and loving it? 😂 I’m about midway so we’ll see what the second half has in store if I still feel the same way, but it’s definitely out of what I’d consider my “typical read”. I though that about contemporary romance too until I challenged myself for a month and ever since then I’ve been hooked. 🙃 Moral: be careful what you branch out and read hahaha

  4. Oooh this is interesting! I am shamefully part of the Twilight fandom of 2008 lol so I understand your aversion to it 😂 And I’m also extreeemely hesitant to start with Evelyn Hugo bc it might not live up to the hype 🙈 Love this post, Steven! I might do it too!


  5. Great post! I’m definitely going to do this tag.
    I never finished Twilight, read the first 2 books though. And I’m desperate to read the seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I love getting excited for hyped up books but sometimes no matter how hard to try you can’t get excited about them.

  6. I’m sure you’re tired of people telling you to read Evelyn Hugo so feel free to ignore this 😂 BUT I just wanted to say that it’s not the kind of book I normally read either, and I thought the summary sounded dreadful. I only picked it up because my friend kept bugging me to read it, but I ended up LOVING IT. So, just something to keep in mind! It really transcends its premise and its genre. Vanity Fair, yes, I don’t think you could pay me to read that.
