Hello Book Ravens!
It’s not unknown that I’m not very good at keeping up with new releases. I read rather slowly, and because I’m trying to read all the cool new books coming out* I tend to forget about older, popular releases.
So I figured I’d make a list – because maybe some of these books are horrible and I dodged a bullet…or maybe I’ve totally missed out on the best book ever.**
*why are there so many?
**unlikely, but you never know
I’ve heard a lot of people talking about her third book (or, the third book in her series) that’s coming out soon…but I have literally no idea what it’s about.
It’s dystopian? I think? And I don’t really read much dystopian anymore.
In all honesty, I tried to read Anna and the French Kiss and ended up DNF-ing it at thirty pages. It still makes me angry to think about – and I don’t even remember why.
So…I’m not going back to that one.
I know, I know: she’s the queen of classic literature, but I’ve never even tried to read any of her books. I have been tackling more classics lately, so maybe I’ll try it soon…but I’d rather stick to my
The only thing appealing about the Divergent trilogy right now is the fact that it’s set in Chicago. But otherwise, I’m not interested. Besides, the ending has been spoiled for me and that no longer interests me.
And as for Carve the Mark? The premise isn’t too interesting to begin with, and there’s so much controversy and jumping to conclusions and I really don’t even want to get in the middle of that.
…I don’t know if there’s anything I can say in my defense.
Besides the fact that I don’t particularly like contemporaries, I’ve just never had the motivation to pick her books up. And when I get them at the library, they just sit on my shelves and gather dust (and overdue fines).
I don’t know how many of these books I’ll actually try to read, but the most likely would be Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes.
That said, don’t hold me to anything. It’s highly unlikely.
