Hyped 2019 Releases I Don’t Care About
Oh boy, the shade is strong with this week’s topic haha! I’m not usually one for being negative about books (not every book is going to be my cup of tea and that’s okay) but there are a few books I doubt I’m going to read (at least in the near future probably some not at all). Hype surrounds them but I remain unmoved. 😉
1. Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt de la Pena
I have bought the rest of the books in the DC Icons series (and I’m kinda gutted about this one because I love Superman) but I have no intentions of reading this because of the allegations against Matt de la Pena. I don’t want to support someone who has a history of sexual harassment. Nope.
2. Sherwood by Meagan Spooner
I’m not sure why I’m not excited for this as on paper it’s everything I normally love in a book. A retelling of Robin Hood with Maid Marian stepping into the role of outlaw? Oh yeah! Except, I’m just not feeling it. Maybe I might change my mind but for now it’s definitely not a must-read.
3. Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
This book is everywhere right now but I have only read the first book in the Infernal Devices series and though I liked it enough but I wasn’t totally wowed either. I haven’t yet worked up any enthusiasm to check out the rest of the author’s books and, although I know I will eventually, I am not excited for this latest one because it could be a good long time before I’m in a position to read it.
4. Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi
I have the first book on my Kindle but even though the buzz about it has been pretty much overwhelmingly positive, I still haven’t got the motivation to read it which makes the follow-up due out this year a bit of a no-go for me. I might change my mind but I doubt it will be anytime soon.
5. Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West
I haven’t yet hopped onto the Kasie West train. I know her books are beloved, and they do sound pretty cute, but I’m just not in the right place for fluffy contemporary novels right now.
