Book Tags have always been a staple in the book community, but sometimes there are not a lot of them about, or they just are not as popular. Over the last couple of months, I have seen the Anti-TBR Tag going around Booktube so I thought I would give it ago. The tag was created by Nicole & Her Books so feel free to check out her channel. Let's get started with the tag...
1. A popular book EVERYONE loves that you have no interest in reading?
Any romance book, but the one that I am really think about is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I am just not interested in anything that mentions sex and I just don't want to read about this type of fey.
2. A classic book (or author) you don't have an interest in reading?
I own books by Jane Austen but after reading Pride & Prejudice, I don't really have any interest in reading any more of her books. I just think that Jane Austen is for me and that's OK.
3. An author whose book you have no interest in reading?
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who has also been a transphobe in her views. Her books are also really long and I am just never really want to pick them up. But mainly we don't support transphobes on this blog.
3.2 A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading?
The author that must not be named. (The way that I have written it can give you who it is.) We support trans rights on this blog, not transphobes.
4. An author you have read a couple of books from & have decided their books are not for you?
So I grew up on Holly Bourne's books and every time she had a new release I got really excited and now I don't as much. I think that I am just growing out of her YA books but I will definitely try to read her adult stuff.
5. A genre you have no interest in OR a genre you tried to get into & couldn't?
So I'm not that interested in romance book, especially like smutty books. I am not interest in sex in real life and am not interest to read about it in books too. I have tried a couple of books but I can't get past some of the language. I understand why people like it but it is just not for me.
6. A book you have bought but will never read?
The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. I have bought it on multiple occasions. I have tried to read it on a couple of times but I just can't get into it. I do have an audiobook so I think the only way that I will read it is if I am forced.
7. A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started & have dnf'ed?
I have really liked the original Miss Peregrine's series but I just don't think that I will read the new series. This might change when I finally get to Library Of Souls but for now I am not interested.
8. A new release you have no interest in reading?
Yolk by Mary H.K. Choi as I know that it has to do with a cancer diagnosis which I don't feel comfortable reading about now. The book so seem like a good premise so hopefully I will feel comfortable reading it soon.
