Top Ten Tuesday: October 6, 2015

Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit
(aka ten book series I think I'm going to abandon, ten bookish habits I want to quit, ten authors I quit reading, ten types of books I'm quitting, ten tropes I want to stop reading about, ten books I marked as DNF (did not finish) recently, etc. Get as creative as you want)

10. I never finished the Ruby Red series and I never will because I couldn't stand it.

9. I'm going to quit putting to many expectations on myself. I put my reading goal at 50 this year and I'm like 10 books behind my schedule and at first I felt bad about it but I've had to get over it.

8. I tried reading the Iron Fey series but couldn't ever get into it and I wonder if it's just Julie Kagawa's writing so I probably won't ever read a book by her again unfortunately.

7. I'm going to try to stop putting to much faith in book to movie adaptations. Lately I feel like they've been trying their best to stay true to the book - especially when it comes to John Green book turned movies - but it doesn't always happen and I need to not get so upset about that.

6. I think I'm going to try to stop reading books where the female protagonist is to dependent on the male. It's annoying and I don't like it.

5. I can tell you now I will probably never read a book by the lady who wrote Gone Girl because that book was to hard for me to read and the movie was almost to crazy for me.

4. Another habit I want to quit is waiting SO long to read the next book in a series. Sometimes I wait so long in between books that I have NO clue what's going on in the second book. It's a problem.

3. I would like to say I'd like to break out of the habit of getting so attached to characters but you know that's not going to happen. :)

2. I want to attempt to stop reading the end of a Nicholas Sparks book before I read the rest of it. However I only do it because he hurts my heart and I'd rather be prepared for it.

1. I'd like to stop putting so much pressure on myself all in all. I know I kind of mentioned that earlier but I really really want to quit. If I can't afford books I can't get upset about it. If I don't meet my reading goal I need to get over it. If I don't like a book everyone else loves who cares. I just need to quit with the pressure.
