Game of Thrones. I tried to read the series after the first season of the show, but just couldn't do it. I still love the show, but can't seem to bring myself to read the books.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass really relies on that YA trope of "average yet actually beautiful girl must chose between two amazing handsome guys," but I still enjoy the series. Or at least what I've read of it so far.
I will never read any of The Lord of the Rings. They are just too much for me, and I'm not afraid to admit it.

I'm going to be honest and let you know that before this challenge I did not have an answer for this one. I did some digging on GoodReads, however, to find a debut novel coming out this year that I would read and this is what I came up with: The Nest (kinda appropriate, heh) by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney.
As I mentioned before in this post, I love the worlds Gail Carriger creates, so I'll pretty much read anything she writes.
Honestly, I feel like all of Sarah J. Maas' current series are overhyped, but I'm still looking forward to each book that comes out in them!
Hey, Jasper Fforde, are we ever going to get 7 Things To Do Before You Die in Talgarth, the second book in the Shades of Grey series?
I don't know if this answers this question correctly, but there are two books that I've read that stand out as books I didn't expect much from and they became two of my favorite books that I recommend everyone read. When I say I didn't expect much, I mean that I figured they'd be well written and a good read, I just didn't expect to love them as much as I do. I'm sure they had high praise before I read them, but I don't pay attention to those lists or things like that, I just read the blurbs and if I like it I read the book. Or, in the case of both of these books, they are picked for me to read from my book club.
Bringing it back, full circle, with this one because I would love to own a collector's edition of The Chronicles of Narnia. I have a box set of the series, but I'd love something "fancier".
Ok! So, I tag...anyone who wants to do this! Heh. I really enjoyed it.
