Top Ten Tuesday #3

This is an meme from The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers.

Top 10 Books I'll Never Read

1. Any book written by or about Sarah Palin: the woman scares me enough in the news, I don't want to waste any more time on her.

2. Anything written by Nicholas Sparks. There's a lot to cry about in the world, I don't need one of his books to add to it.

3.  Any diet books. They don't help and they only give meal plans that single people can use.

4.  Moby Dick, I didn't read it in high school when I was supposed  to, I'm not going to read it now.

5. Any nonsense written by L. Ron Hubbard

6. Any other plays by Shakespeare that I didn't read in high school. Plays are meant to be watched not read.

7. Any memoir where a now wealthy person is whining about how bad they once had it.

8. Political memoirs/autobiographies etc...I've decided that I won't just single out Palin..I don't want to read about any of these crooks and wingnuts, and I don't care which party they belong to either.

9.  Most likely anything that falls into the Thriller or Horror category. I like to sleep after I read.

10. Stephanie Meyer's The Host. I know I will probably finish reading the Twilight Saga, much to my chagrin, but there's no way I'm reading any more of her stuff.

You and I think a like. I didn't add the whining celebrity memoir to my list, but thought it. Take a look at our similarities.

Absolutely with you on Sarah Palin...she made my list too with Going Rogue. Trust me, you didn't miss anything by not reading Moby Dick. That book is the big suck. I, being the faithful little student, actually read it (and hated every minute).

I should have put horror on my list. I don't like being scared out of my wits.

I've read The Host but apart from that, I pretty much agree with everything you have on your list!

Lu said...

I agree with most, except I'll still try a Nicholas Sparks book sometime, and I loved The Host! It was very different from the Twilight Saga :)

Aleksandra said...

Lol, great post :) I agree with you on almost all the things, except that I read thriller & horror, but good point about sleeping after reading ;) I haven't done this meme, but books I'll never read are the Twilight books :)

I haven't read or watched any of the Twilight series... Not that interested for some reason.
