Top Ten Tuesday - Ten books I'll never read

This is a weekly meme from The Broke and the Bookish.

That is (again) quite hard to say - I've got to confess that I can't exclude that I'll read one or two of these books sometime in future but right now I will not read them and have no intention to.
In no particular order my top ten are there is:
  1. Michel Houellebecq: Les Particules élémentaires ( Engl. title : Atomised)
  2. Dan Brown: The Da Vinci Code
  3. Brett Easton Ellis: American Psycho
  4. Stephenie Meyer's The Twilight series [Sorry, but no, thanks. Again: sorry, folks! - or: girls?? ;"p]
  5. Natascha Kampusch: 3096 Tage (=3,096 Days) [too tough for me.]
  6. Stephen King: It [Yuck! clowns..]
  7. Allan and Barbara Pease: Why Men don't Listen and Women can't read Maps [btw. my sister and I can read maps -and my brother is a good listener - thank you very much, sexists.]
  8. Günter Grass: Im Krebsgang (Engl. title: Crabwalk) [- no NO-list without him.. I positively won't read any book by him soon. I hated The Tin Drum! - quite sexist, too.]
  9. Jodi Picoult: My sister's keeper [err.. no.]
  10. Adolf Hitler: Mein Kampf (Engl.: My struggle) [- Do have I to explain that? Though I admit that it would interest me - but that would be a post of its own: why I am interested in it while at the same time it would disgust me..]
How about you?


  1. I thought The Da Vinci Code was good entertainment, though a little (a lot) far-fetched. We agree on several though, I don't think I'll ever read American Psycho or My Sister's Keeper either.

  2. I probably won't read any of those books either! It would be easier to make a 'top 100 books I'll never read' than just top 10.

  3. HAHA seriously, I don't know one guy that's read Twilight! Great list!

  4. I completely agree with that list! I think I am actually afraid to read Twilight in case I somehow liked it. Better just to avoid those books altogether :)

  5. With you on the Twilight series and Stephen King. Hitler's book is so far off my radar (as in I wouldn't even consider it) that I would never have thought of it. I did like the Da Vinci Code...but after reading Angels & Demons (Terrible!!!), I wouldn't touch another Dan Brown for anything.
