Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I know everyone in the world loves this, but I really don’t think I’ll ever read it. There is honestly nothing about it that looks interesting to me. Plus, I DNF-ed that Evelyn Hugo book that everyone loved, so I feel like this would be a similar situation.

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Another series that really just didn’t sound interesting to me. I might still try it some day, but if I haven’t read it yet, I doubt I ever will.

It by Stephen King. Actually, I have never read a Stephen King book. I’m not really into Horror and all of his books look far too long.

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I’ve seen nothing but wonderful reviews on this, but I tried it once and couldn’t get into it at all.

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. I know everyone loves this, too, but I strongly reject the romanticism of prostitution.

What popular books have you not read?

  2. Stephanie, Stephanie, Stephanie this list needs an intervention!!!! 😀

    If you love audiobooks, you need to check out the one for Daisy Jones, and Harry Potter. Both are the gold standards of how it should be done, and they are almost better than the book itself. Both books/series come ALIVE on audiobook.

    The Kiss Quotient was a good read, but in the end I gave it a 4. It’s a solid romance, a bit more steamy than people expected, but for someone that reads a lot of romance it was just standard, nothing over the top.

    The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was one of the most complex books I ever read, again I listened to the audiobook but boy, I had to concentrate on it. But it would make a great movie some day. 😀

    And I need to stay away from It by Stephen King, I would have nightmares for months if I read the book, let alone watch the movie. lol

    • Lol, I will keep all of this in mind. I don’t really do audio books, but I have heard that Daisy Jones audio is really good, so that would probably be how I would try it if I ever decide to. I can’t get past the whole escort thing for The Kiss Quotient, so I know I’ll never read that. I might still try the 7 1/2 Deaths one day, if I’m in the right mood. Thanks for the intervention!

  3. I didn’t think The Kiss Quotient would be your thing because of the amount of sexy times anyways. I think if you can get past drug use mentions, you might be okay with Daisy Jones. I would recommend trying it on audio. It’s very different from Evelyn Hugo.

  4. I didn’t like Daisy Jones and the Six and I listened to it. I did like the interview format and that was about it. I didn’t like The Kiss Quotient either. The romance didn’t work for me at all. I haven’t read Stephen King and I never will either for the same reasons.

  5. Wow, Stephanie – you and I have a lot in common. I’ve never read a Harry Potter book and never had an interest. All that magic just never appealed to me. As for Stephen King, never read a single book. I keep meaning to, though, but I’m also not generally into the horror genre. I’m actually still recovering from watching The Shining many years ago. Now, Daisy Jones, that was a good book, so maybe since we’re book buddies you will reconsider 😉 I understand though – I run away from hype. Great post and book choices!

    • Thank you! I’m glad to see another book blogger who never read Harry Potter! I always feel like the black sheep when it comes to that series. I feel like there’s no way Daisy Jones could live up to the hype for me, even though everyone loves it. I guess never say, though.

  6. I want to join your Never Read Harry Potter or Stephen King Club! I suspect the former may be an age thing (if I was twenty years younger perhaps I would have read them when they first came out) and the latter because I don’t care for horror. I read the first few chapters of Daisy Jones and the Six and it didn’t appeal to me at all.
