Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I'm No Longer Interested In Reading. I'm not really sure how to go about deciding what goes on this list. I recently culled my Goodreads TBR so there probably isn't a lot on there I can use. I also recently weeded my shelves, but I haven't removed those boxes yet, so I might go through those books. I'll let you know what I work out.
I ended up going through my boxes to get rid of. Here's what I came up with.
The Glass Books of the Dream Eater, Volume 2 by Gordon Dahlquist - I read volume 1 9 years ago. So I have no idea what it was about. As I look at Goodreads, I realize this series is forever long. No thanks.
The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simmons - A couple of my favorite BookTubers went bananas over this book. This was several years ago, before I realized that BookTubers go bananas over every book they get before they read it. When they've read it and review it is when you can take them seriously. After I bought this, the reviews came in and it has serious problems. Only a few of the reviewers still liked the book after reading it. I started it. Couldn't get into it. Out it goes.
Freud's Mistress by Karen Mack - I probably bought this for 2 reasons. 1. It says Freud in the title. 2. The authors wrote a book that I have read over and over. Unfortunately, that book is nothing like this one. It's a contemporary. This is historical. I'm just not feeling it anymore.
The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett - I have no idea where I got this or why. Whatever impetus spurred me to buy it has long since petered out. I'm over it.
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan - So I guess this is about Frank Lloyd Wright. I guess I was into famous people's love affairs for a minute. I'm not anymore.
Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch by Dai Sijie - I loved Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by this author. This one just has not captured my attention.
The Last Empress by Anchee Min - I guess I had an Asian kick.
I'm not saying these aren't great books. I'm saying I no longer have any interest in reading them.
Do you weed your books? How do you decide what goes?
