I know, I know... never say never. But isn't this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic fun? I had to play along, even if it is a day late. Here are ten books you'll never find me curled up with:
Ulysses by James Joyce
Can't imagine tackling this under any circumstances.
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
“Call me Ishmael” is as far as I'll ever get.
The Illiad & The Odyssey by Homer
Epic poetry combined with mythology is totally beyond me, I'm afraid.
Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
Two words: magic realism.
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
You know why.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, Jane Austen
How could anyone do this to Jane?
Clarissa by Samuel Richardson
Second attempt fail. In my own read-along, no less. Time to cry uncle.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Post-apocalyptic? No, thank you.
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
"Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy" Ugh, no. And it's long.
Watership Down by Richard Adams
The characters are rabbits. Enough said.
Are there any here I should reconsider?
What books will you never read?
