This week the topic is…
10 Books I Will Probably Never Read
However, I’m not really a fan of ruling out books. If you’d suggested to me 10 years ago that my favourite genre now would be fantasy I wouldn’t have believed you. Equally I can’t imagine myself picking up many of the books today that I read 10 years ago. So I’m changing this up a bit. I’m going back in time to my early 20s and thinking of those books that my 20 year old self NEVER thought I’d read, but I have done and I’ve loved them.
So my version of the topic is…
10 Books I Thought I’d Never Read… But I Did!
So here, we go. What’s weird is that many of these books are actually my all-time favourites now!
The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien. I know, I know. Back in my teenage years all my friends were reading this classic and I just didn’t feel like I’d ever be interested in reading it!
A Game of Thrones, George RR Martin. A book in one of my all-time favourite series. If you’d put this in my hand 10 years ago I would have read the back, then tucked it at the back of the shelf. *blushes*
So you see, I’ve learned that I’ve no idea where my bookish tastes may lie in the future. I would never have imagined reading these 10 books/series. They just didn’t appeal to me. Looking back, I can’t believe I ruled these books out. Equally I can’t believe some of the drivel (in my opinion) I read back then…but who knows, maybe in another 10 years I’ll be back to the drivel, though I really hope not!
What books did you think you’d never read? Are there books you think you’ll never read?
