Top Ten Tuesday – In Which I Find I Dislike A Lot of Covers


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is books that I’ve lost interest in, which was actually a really great topic for me. I’ve been meaning to do some weeding of my TBR list, but it’s just felt so overwhelming that I keep putting it off. I mean I only have 2903 books on it. 😛 Anyway, this week’s topic helped me go through the list, I mean I only went through 4 pages and I only deleted 10 books. But hey, it’s a start. All of the books below I put on my list back in 2011.

1. Tuppence to Spend by Lilian Harry.

Years and years ago I read a book by Lilian Harry and loved it (I don’t know if I’d still like it) and then I decided I needed to read everything else she’s done. Looking on my list now there are still some of them that sound interesting, this one sounded the least interesting hence why it’s on this list.


2. On The Fringe by Courtney King Walker.

This book doesn’t hold my interest anymore because it sounds just a little cliche. Now if it was a queer book I’d read it in a heartbeat, but I’m in a place where I just have the hardest time shipping straight characters.


3. Just Your Average Princess by Kristina Springer.

I’m not sure why this book was on my TBR to begin with? I don’t know, but between the hideous cover and the synopsis it’s no longer on my list.


4. Love Story by Jennifer Echols. 

I used to have another book by this author on my TBR, but I deleted it a while back. I obviously should have done the same for this book. The synopsis already made me angry because of the controlling grandmother.


5. Swood by Nina Malkin.

My teenage self was obsessed with paranormal books for a year or so, not because I read any of the books, but because they sounded like the sort of fluffy books by mother refused to let me read. I rebelled by putting them on my TBR and hoping that some day I could read them when I moved out. Ah teenage life, always so fun. 😛


6. Swear by Nina Malkin.

The book is the sequel to the above book, so obviously it had to go. 😀


7. Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik.

Books about normal kids going to high school were also something I was obsessed with at the age of 15. Being homeschooled, living on a farm and then living in the missionary (cult) group I had no idea what being normal would look like. These books were sort of escape for me, even though I couldn’t read them. It was the thought that countes. 😉


8. A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies.

Eww points off for the cover. Points off for the cliche synopsis. *Sigh* And another book deleted from my TBR.  The list is looking lighter already!


9. The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle. 

There was nothing that jumped out at me that made me instantly delete this book. The cover’s not bad, and the story didn’t sound terrible. I just have no interest in reading this book anymore. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up reading it someday but for now it feels fine to move on.


10. Melody Burning.

Another awful cover, what the heck was I thinking? Yes I am slightly petty like that. If a cover is bad I put the book down just for that.


And there you are! 10 books off of my TBR.  Were any of these books actually worth reading? What did you put on your TTT post? Don’t forget to leave a comment so that I can hop over to your blog and take a look! Thanks for reading.


  1. I loved this!
    I bet I have over fifty or so books on my TBR list that I added because I felt obligated to read it for one reason or another…… but have said “wtf were they thinking.” When it came to the cover.
