5 Authors I Won’t Be Reading Anymore

01 Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)

My gosh, what a place to start. This blog post is going to be totally awkward to write but, oh well!

My favourite review in existence – this review pretty much sums up why I won’t be reading anymore of Casserole Clam’s books.

02 John Green

sd  asdas  SasASasLooking for Alaska Will Grayson, Will Grayson

I have only read three of John Green’s books but I just don’t think his books are for me. His characters mostly seem to annoy me, and I just can’t connect with them. Either they’re supposed to be way smarter than me or they’re doing drugs every two seconds – wither way, I just cannot relate.

03 Veronica Roth

Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark, #1)

Yeah, going by the book shown above, you understand why I don’t want to read any more of her books. I’ve only read Divergent by her but honestly at this point I just can’t stomach reading any more of her books

04 Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)

I’ve only read the Firebird trilogy by Claudia Gray  but honestly I disliked it so much that it’s put me off anything else she might write in the future.

My Review of Book 2 (I guess I never got around to writing a review for book 1 or 3)

05 Nicholas Sparks

Safe Haven

Okay guys, fight me. I have read a total of 1 book by this guy, and I doubt I’ll be reading any more. I read Safe Haven (pictured) purely because I love the movie (again, fight me) and I was curious to see how faithful the film was to the book. I’ve seen a couple of the other Sparks adaptations but I really don’t know if I can be bothered even watching any new films of his, I just don’t think they’re for me.

Have you read any of these? Do you have any authors whose books you refuse to read?

  1. No, I love John Green and Cassandra Clare! 😂 I’ve never read a Nicholas Sparks book in my life or watched the movies, but I’m not a fan of cheesy romance, so that’s probably why! 😂

    1. I know you do! 😂 I felt so bad writing this post because I know you’re a big fan of their works.
      I really doubt that you’d enjoy Sparks’ novels – they’re really dramatic and over the top, and the romances are ridiculous. If you were ever going to read a contemporary I would recommend Becky Albertalli.

  2. I couldn’t agree more with Cassandra Clare and John Green!!!! I’m so over Cassandra Clare. I tried to read the new series but it’s just the same thing over and over. John Green is iffy. I loved The Fault in our Stars but every other one was a disappointment.

    1. Ugh, I know what you mean! I thought about picking up Lady Midnight for about 5 seconds when I saw it at the library after it came out but I’m honestly so done with her and her books.

      I don’t hate John Green so much, I think he’s a really cool guy and I love his learning based YouTube videos but I just can’t with his books. I really enjoyed TFIOS when I read it when it came out but I know that I’ve definitely changed as a reader since then and probably wouldn’t enjoy it now. As for his other books, of the few I’ve read, I really didn’t like them and I think his writing and characters just aren’t for me.

  3. I read one Cassandra Clare book, thought it was mediocre, and just never picked up another one. I only heard about the bullying fans and plagiarism accusations later. And while I don’t often care about what authors/artists in general do in their creative lives (I’d probably be able to watch 2 movies, listen to 3 songs, and read 5 books if I cared about creators behaving perfectly in their personal lives), I do have some lines.

    1. YEP YEP YEP. The bullying and the plagirism is one of the main reasons why I just cannot stand her and her books – how can I trust someone who has plagirised?

      I also hate the fact that one of the main gay characters in her novels is dating a bi character but is clearly biphobic and ughhhhh I don’t need that crap in my life. i read all of her Infernal Devices and Mortal Instruments series and honestly I kind of regret reading them, I’m glad that I can now rant but I often just think about all of the actual good books I could have read in place of them!


  4. I think John Green is a NO to me too 😂! I read Looking for Alaska and liked it but his other works were almost the same character personalities and boring and meh.
    Also I have no intention to read a Nicholas Sparks book! Too cheesy for me😂

    1. Nicholas Sparks novems are ridiculously cheesy, yes I definitely don’t recommend them. If you need a light romance just watch the movies (The Lucky One and Safe Haven are both really good).

      I confess, I couldn’t even make it through the first third of Looking for Alaska. My detachment from the characters and my lack of knowledge (about anything, really) was so bad at the time that I just couldn’t get through it.

      1. I know! They are too much for me haha. I saw a couple of movies but they are really a hit or miss.
        Most of the people I know think like you, but I think it has a special place in my heart just because it was one of the first books I picked when I started reading. So I can’t hate it 😂

  5. I’ve only read John Green from this list, I don’t hate his books but I don’t love them either. I’ve read 2 I think but the fault in our stars is the only one I really remember! I haven’t read cassandra clare because the mortal instruments series is too intimidating to start at this point 😂

  6. Casserole Clam… you are killing me!!hahaha
    I actually have a accept/hate relationship with her! I love the world she created and I ended up really enjoying TMI but TID has been on my TBR forever, I know I should read them and I was actually counting on getting all of the shadowhunter world books but lately I’ve been growing more… I don’t know, I just don’t care enough I guess!!

    1. Yeah, sorrynotsorry, but I call her that all the time! ‘
      Here’s the thing with CC – I actually don’t hate the Shadow world but I just hate how basically all her books are set in the same world (in my mind it just shows a lack of originality) and how (from what i’ve read) she misrepresents characters and minority groups. This is why I much prefer the show, the acting isn’t fantastic but the characters are so much better in the show.
