Top Ten Tuesday: Not a Fan

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

February 21: Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would (recently or all time)

First off sorry I didn’t get a post out yesterday.  We left for town to get the car alignment done early and I just didn’t get around to it in the afternoon.  This week I am going to not select single books but paranormal series/authors that I just didn’t click with.  I tried to stick to major names that have wide fan bases and not just obscure authors few have heard of.  So shall we see who I’m just not a fan of?

Ten Paranormal Series I Didn’t Like

  1. Dark Prince (Dark, #1)  Christine Feehan: Took me several books before I realized that this author’s writing style and I didn’t gel.  It has been a while so I can’t remember exactly why she didn’t work for me just that I didn’t care for her series and decided to pursue greener pastures.
  2. A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark #2) Kresley Cole: Another series where I read several books into the series before abandoning.  Also, another series that I attempted so long ago that I forgot why.  Thank goodness for Goodreads otherwise, I would be picking up work by these authors that I don’t care for all the time…
  3. The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) Gena Showalter: I so wanted to enjoy this author’s work that I attempted two different series by her.  Neither one clicked for me so now I know better than to pick up a tempting book by Ms. Showalter.  Pretty covers, though.
  4. Bitten & Smitten (Immortality Bites, #1) Michelle Rowen: Read like three books in this series.  It was enough.
  5. I Burn for You (Primes, #1) Susan Sizemore: Ditto.
  6. Betrayed (House of Night, #2) P.C. Cast: Picked up this series shortly after my Twilight phase.  Just didn’t care for it.  Too much poetry and too imature.
  7. Undead and Unwed (Undead, #1) MaryJanice Davidson: I tried with this world.  The main character ended up doing me in and I just couldn’t continue after like five books.  Not a fan.
  8. Kiss of Pride (Deadly Angels, #1) Sandra Hill: Just couldn’t get into the second book in this series.  I do own the next two books however so this one is the only series on the list that I will be making another attempt at someday…
  9. Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #1) Laurell K. Hamilton: This author and the next are so popular that I am almost ashamed to put them on the list.  I had to though because in the end I didn’t like either of these series one I managed to get like five books into before abandoning the other I dumped halfway through the second book.
  10. Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1) Jim Butcher: See above.  Dumped halfway through book two.  Sorry but I could not stand his characters.

 

Well, I hope that I have not offended too many of you this week’s selections.  Just remember that just because something didn’t work for me doesn’t mean you won’t love it so go give these a try to make up your own mind whether they are good or not.  What authors haven’t worked for you?
