Hey Guys! Today I’m coming at you with a new blog post talking about the 6 popular books I am no longer interested in reading about! Also, I’m naming these “popular” because I’ve seen A LOT of people reading these book and/or the author’s other works.
Remember to click on the book covers to go to the Goodreads pages!
SIX OF CROWS
I’m starting with Six of crows? Because I’m a savage? And I have no interest in these books?
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book by Leigh Bardugo, well, actually that’s wrong. I did start her first book in the Grisha trilogy and I thought it was boring as batshit so I DNFed it. After that, I really thought about it and ended up taking SOC off my tbr because I’m really just not that interested in it, and I’ve been spoiled for book 2 anyway so what’s the point???
Okay, so I have actually read all of the original series, plus the novellas. But, I honestly didn’t really like it so I just don’t see myself continuing. ESPECIALLY since I don’t like who the mc ended up with. Honestly, he’s gross and I disapprove (not that the other guy was any better tbh).
CASSANDRA CLARE WORKS
- Cassandra Clare’s original books have pretty poor writing.
- There’s too much angsty romance.
- I didn’t like any of her books that I’ve read.
- I’m honestly just sick of the Shadowhunter world in general.
I am not now and will never be a 14-year-old boy going through puberty so I just don’t see myself connecting with this story. Apparently, there’s also a really terrible ending with a gay character being used as a plot device.
Basically, I’ve had this book on my shelves for something like 5/6 years and have never even gone to pick it up and read it. Basically, I’m not going to probably ever pick this up and I’m just not here for the bad rep.
If you want to read more (non-spoiler) you should take a look at this review.
THE BRONZE HORSEMAN
You know what I’m not here for? Rape.
Basically, this book is the definition of inappropriate and problematic.

The Bronze Horseman – rape rape rape
THE UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED
I honestly feel so bad about this. I have started this and I got roughly 50 pages in but I just don’t know if this is the book for me. The main character is plus sized which is great for representation’s sake, but from what I remember/ have heard is that she also needs validation out of getting a boyfriend because of her weight and size. As a plus-sized woman, I say no thanks to this whole plotline.
The Upside of Unrequited – i feel so bad but the mc needs validation out of getting a bf. she feels validated out of getting a bf bc shes plus sized. As a plus-sized woman, I say no thanks.
