"Top Ten Books We're Not Sure We Want To Read"

Nicole's Top Five

1. Crown of Embers (Girl of Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson
Despite my lukewarm response to The Girl of Fire and Thorns, I was promised that this book was better. And I know I should read it so that I too can (hopefully) fall in love with Hector. And I promised I would, so someday I would like to think that I will. But I am still lacking sufficient motivation to pick this one up sooner rather than later. 

2. Dare You To (Pushing the Limits #2) by Katie McGarry
I am in the same boat with this book as I am with Crown of Embers. It's not that I don't think I will like it and so many friends have loved this series of stories but I find myself lacking the desire to pick it up. And it's even on my shelf. 

3. Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I admit I am a little curious about the series that everyone is talking about but I am 95% certain that I will hate it. So I am kind of avoiding it... Aliens, better yet aliens that look like humans, are so not my cup of tea. Same goes for jerk-like boys and I heard Daemon is one of those. 

4. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
This is another series that is well received but like aliens, I avoid zombies like the plague too and I am worried I won't like it as much as everyone else. 

5. Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E. L. James
I don't think this book is for me either. I don't even read straight romance let alone adult romance, let alone erotica. But they are coming out with a movie and it feels like everyone and their mother read this book AND I want to be able to read the parody Fifty Shames of Early Grey by Fanny Merkin and Andrew Shaffer. 

Ashley's Top Five

1.Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
So many people fangirl over this series, including Nicole :)  I am just worried I will not like it.  

2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I am very undecided about this one, I actually bought a copy because I have heard so many good things.  But again I am not sure if I would enjoy it. 

3. The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa
I have heard really good things about Julie Kagawa and am super excited to read Talon.  I have just not been in the mood for a vampire book for quite sometime now so I am not sure if this is the book to break that dry spell. 

4. Rose Under Fire (Code Name Verity #2) by Elizabeth Wein
Don't throw rocks over here!  I enjoyed Code Name Verity but it just did not blow me out of the water, I am not sure if that was because I listened to just the audio version but it was just a bit too slow for my taste.  I know everyone has pretty much loved Rose Under Fire so I am tempted to give it a try. 

5. Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles #1) by Melina Marchetta
Nicole loves Melina Marchetta, as do many other bloggers!  I tried this one again as an audio book and could not make it past the first chapter.  So I am not sure if I want to pick up the actual physical book and try it. 

What are your top ten?
