Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Did Not Finish (Round 2)

top 5 wednesday banner

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is dedicated to the books I never finished, but I’ve decided to spice up this post (because I already did it in November). Instead of talking about the books I never finished, I’m going to let you know about the books I wish I had never finished. Let’s get started.

1. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I absolutely loved The Mortal Instruments and I was so disappointed when Clockwork Angel didn’t measure up. I’ve head from many people that they loved it, so maybe I should give it another try, but I thought it was way too long and tried to make too many connections. It felt like she was just trying to continue on with the series because it was successful.

Series of Unfortunate Events
2. A Series of Unfortunate Events 
by Lemony Snicket
I know I’m going to get a lot of haters for this, but this was one of the worst series ever. Every book was exactly the same, and I wasn’t far too much time on them as a kid. Everyone loved them, and I did too, until I realized every novel in the series followed the same pattern, and the pattern wasn’t even that good. (I never finished the series.)

breaking dawn
3. Breaking Dawn 
by Stephanie Meyer
Don’t get me wrong, we all went through a Twilight phase, and for the most part, I can appreciate that time in my life, but I NEVER liked Breaking Dawn. It was one of those books that just ruined the series for me. It should have ended with Eclipse. It was the best book and movie, and that’s all I have to say about that.

Eat Pray Love
4. Eat, Pray, Love 
by Elizabeth Gilbert
I wanted to love this book — I really did. Everyone raved about it, and I thought it would be about so much more than God, but unfortunately I was disappointed. I think this book has its merits, it just wasn’t for me.

5. The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
I read this book in 7th grade, and maybe it was my 13-year-old brain or it truly was awful, but I hated this book. It’s entire plot is based around sex and rice. Maybe I’ll give it another go later on in life, but for right now, I wish I never had to read it.

What books would be on your list if I had to decide which ones you had never read? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading,

    I’m gutted you slated A Series…etc by Snicket – I was a fan of them (and still am!). I get that they can be repetitive, but to an extent other series like Harry Potter and Hunger Games have similar patterns of “Oh no we have to do XYZ to defeat Voldermort/President Snow/whoever”. I suppose that’s to be expected of children’s books though. I’m curious to know how far you got in the series. Have you seen the film adaptation? I just posted a review of it over on my blog! x

      Tons of people are fans of them! I just wasn’t one of them. I got up to like nine or ten (I know I should have just kept reading them and maybe one day I will) but I truly found them so monotonous I had to put them down. I have seen the film adaptation (if you’re referencing the one that came out a while ago) and it was just fine on my book. Nothing too impressive (sorry if I gutted you again!). I think this is the same as if anyone disliked Harry Potter (of which I’ve met many) – everyone just has different tastes.
