Here's my list:
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I think my reasons all stem from the movie...which I refuse to watch. I don't have any specific reasons why. I like Julia Roberts. The book sounds like it would probably be okay. I just feel very meh about it.
- Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. Sounds boring. Boring! I've never seen the movie either...
- Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns by John Green. I was not impressed with The Fault in Our Stars and I really have no desire to read anything else he's written. So predictable!
- Anything else by Nicholas Sparks. I've read The Notebook and A Walk to Remember. What an atrocious writer!!!
- The Host by Stephanie Meyer. The Twilight Saga exposed me to enough of her terrible writing (and even more horrific editing) that I refuse to subject myself to anymore of it.
- The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I know it's an American classic and Pulitzer winner, but I was so bored by Of Mice and Men that I just don't think I can do it.
- Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt. No specific reason why I wouldn't want to read this, but it's always been rather low on my radar.
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau. I remember covering Transcendentalism in high school and I hated it. We read excerpts and I've never recovered enough to have any desire to read this. Maybe my view would be different now...
- Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. Same as above...
- The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I don't know why I have no desire to read this book. I even have a copy of it.
Also, look for next week's Top Ten: Authors I REALLY Want to Meet. Oh...there are so many!!!
