Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Loved But Will Never Re-Read


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. There is a new topic each Tuesday, so check out her blog for more info!

This week’s topic was another hard one for me. I don’t like to use the word “never” because I don’t know what kind of mood I’ll be in 3-4 years from now. Maybe I’ll feel the burning need to read The Hunger Games again? But for now, here are my top 10 books I loved but will (most likely) not read again:


11/22/63 by Stephen King

Loved the story, but it is so long. I’m not sure if I will pick it up again due to the time commitment.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My gateway to dystopian YA. Great story, but I doubt I’ll ever read it again.

The Diviners by Libba Bray

I loved The Diviners so much, but I could not get through the sequel. I doubt I’ll ever go back to it.

Grant County series by Karin Slaughter

Karin is one of my favorite crime/thriller writers. While Grant County was a fun series, I doubt I’ll read them again. I much prefer the Will Trent series, which is basically a sequel series to Grant County.

Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell series by Chelsea Cain

What started as a fun crime/thriller series turned… meh. I know I won’t visit this series again.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Yep! I really enjoyed Twilight when it first came out. Now that I’ve “matured” (lol, debatable) I understand its problematic themes. But I give Twilight credit for opening my love of reading again. Will I ever re-read the series? Doubtful.

Anna and the French Kiss series by Stephanie Perkins

Cute, fun, contemporary. But I have no desire to go back and re-read them.

Miss Peregrine series by Ransom Riggs

I haven’t read the third book yet, and by this point, I probably won’t ever get around to it. It is a great series, though. But I think the content is more for younger YA readers, and my taste in books has changed over the years.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

This book made me think so much about life and death. Good read, but sad. Not something I want to read over and over.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I like John Green’s writing, but reading about kids with cancer just doesn’t jive with me very well. It’s a beautiful book, but just reading it once is good enough for me!


What are some books you loved but have no desire to re-read? Let me know!

  1. You made me remember part of the reason why I loved Twilight 🙂 and now I feel less guilty about it. I also won’t be re-reading it again because of the craziness of the fandom, AND because of the problematic themes.

  2. I couldn’t agree more over Me Before You Amy! I have been tempted to p/u the 2nd and 3rd book but ultimately my desire isn’t strong enough. I am however going to give The Diviners a go this Fall 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

    • I feel the same about the Me Before You sequels, Lilly! And I think you’ll enjoy The Diviners. It is an AMAZING book; so spooky and well written. I just lost interest half way through the sequel. LOL I might give it a try again some day – now that the third book is out. 🙂
