Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading & Why

1.Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo


I’m avoiding reading this because there is so much hype around Leigh Bardugo that I am afraid that it won’t live up to the hype for me. I am tempted to read them now that Netflix is going to adapt them but I’m still not sure I want to.

2. Like A Memory by Abbi Glines


I’m avoiding reading this because I HATED the last 6 books of the Rosemary Beach series (like after Bethy the rest of the characters didn’t matter AT ALL.) so anyway, I loved Sea Breeze so I was interested in this spinoff series with the kids of both series. However, I heard really mixed things about this series so I don’t know if I’ll read it.

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor


I’m avoiding reading this because I am once again afraid of the hype surrounding Lani Taylor. I don’t know why but when authors have a lot of hype, I get afraid that I’m going to go in with super high expectations and it not living up for me.

4. A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab


I’m avoiding reading this because I read This Savage Song and I wasn’t too fond of it. I think it had a lot to do with the narrators of the audiobooks. However, fantasy novels and I aren’t the best of friends but I heard this one is really good so I plan to eventually read it.

5.The Wedding Date by Jasmine G


I’m avoiding reading this because I’ve heard really mixed things about this book. Some love it, some hate it. The people I trust the most when it comes to romance weren’t too fond of it so I feel like I probably won’t like it.

6. The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo

I’m avoiding reading this because everyone loves this book (or so it seems). But I’m afraid it won’t live up to the hype for me, but I did score it on amazon sale so I’ll read it eventually.

7.Children Of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi


I’m avoiding reading this because again the hype makes me afraid that this one won’t live up to the hype for me.

8.Colleen Hoover’s Books


I’m avoiding reading this because I have a love hate relationship with CoHo’s books. Mainly, hate. I’ve only ever been able to finish just one of her books.I own several of them but I haven’t been able to finish them.

9. Another Day (Every Day #2) by David Levithan


I’m avoiding reading this because I did a re-read of Every Day and wasn’t a huge fan the second time around. The narrator is still my favorite ever. But I wasn’t a huge fan of the story but I would like to eventually read the series.

10. Tarryn Fisher’s Books


I’m avoiding reading this because I love Tarryn’s instagram. It is so pretty. However, I find myself starting her books and then never finishing them. Bad Mommy is one I tried reading but couldn’t get into so I might buy the audiobook and just listen to it.

What are some of the books you are avoiding that are on your TBR? Do we share any of the same ones?
