Happy day before Galentine’s Day!
Since Galentine’s Day is tomorrow I thought I should share with you 10 romance books that I just can’t bring myself to read. Some of these books I have attempted to read, but couldn’t finish them because they were either too sappy or too sad. Also, when a book is really hyped up by the general public, I find myself struggling to read the book…but that could just be the wannabe hipster in me.
Are there any romance books that you can’t or refuse to read too? Let me know in the comments!
Release Date: April 12, 2012
I love Rainbow Rowell, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to read this one. I’ve had friends who have read it and loved it, and maybe that’s part of the reason I refuse to read it. I’m afraid it won’t be as good as everyone says. John Green also loved it, and he writes really sad books, which leads me to believe that this book is probably sad too.
Release Date: 1877
I mentioned this earlier in my Reading List 2020 post; this book is almost 1,000 pages, so you could say that’s not a huge motivator for reading it.
Release Date: January 5, 2000
I refuse to read the book, and I refuse to watch the movie, even though I love Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. They’re both awesome.
Release Date: November 1, 2016
Haven’t seen the movie, and haven’t read the book. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the book, but again, I can’t bring myself to read it.
Release Date: December 1847
I guess I’m not a big Bronte fan…because I’ve also tried reading Wuthering Heights…and I couldn’t get through it. I’m sorry Bronte sisters!
It’s probably obvious from this list that I’m not a huge fan of books with sad endings, specifically dramatic/romance books. Is there a fun term for that genre? I’m going to call them dramantic books. I tend to stay away from dramantic books, so you probably won’t see too many those book reviews from me. Although, I did add a dramantic book to my 2020 reading list, All The Bright Places, so we’ll see how that goes…
Don’t forget to let me know in the comments if there are any romance (or dramantic) books that you can’t bring yourself to read.
As always, happy reading!
