Prince of Thorns / Mark Lawrence
It was on my wishlist for ages and I almost bought it on a couple of occasions. I finally read a sample last year and am happy I was careful. I didn’t like it at all and threw it off the list.
Wool / Hugh Howey
I almost took part in a Read Along and was always very interested in this trilogy. I was sure that I was going to try it eventually. But after too many negative reviews and other more interesting books, I don’t feel like reading it anymore.
Feast of Souls / C. S. Friedman
After being very disappointed by the author’s ‘Black Sun Rising’, I decided that I don’t want to start another of her trilogies.
Swan Song / Robert McCammon
I started reading last year and although it started out interesting and I liked the setting, it never managed to pick up speed and most of the characters just didn’t move on. The ones I liked were trapped for the whole time and the ones on the move were those I didn’t care enough about. I wanted to give it a break & pick it up again, but now I decided that I am just not interested enough.
Wheel of Time / Robert Jordan
I tried. I really did! Twice I started the series and I even got a couple of books in..after someone annoyed me too much & they used too many filler storylines and I had to drop it again. Never again!
The Maze Runner / James Dashner
Also one of the books I almost bought and had sitting on my wishlist for years. That was before there even was a movie. I just didn’t want to read this kind of story anymore after a while and am not keen on it.
Elantris / Brandon Sanderson
Shame on me 😉 ‘Elantris’ was my first ever Sanderson and I did not even finish it. It took years for me to pick up another Sanderson and once I did that, I was hooked! I was playing with the thought of going back and trying ‘Elantris’ again. But now I have to admit, that I don’t care about it anymore. So if there’s ever more books or short stories set in this world, I will just ignore them^^
Magic Lost, Trouble Found / Lisa Shearin
It was high on my wishlist ages ago – that’s why I remember it. But I never got to it in the end and then lost interest. Not what I like to read anymore.
