I've thus far resisted the Twilight series. Teenage angst (and sparkly vampires) doesn't hold much appeal, I'm afraid. I can't say that I'll never read the series, but if I do, I will freely admit that it will be motivated by curiosity and a desire to be able to justifiably mock the series (something I refrain from doing as I have not actually read the series...but, gosh-golly-gee, it sounds like something I'd enjoy mocking). The other thing I will freely admit is that I'm a tad afraid of actually liking the series once I start reading it.

Maybe my books on politics, because it's not happy reading at all. But I still want to read them at some point :P

A Song of Ice & Fire. This isn't me being a hipster, either. When you hear things like, "Don't get close to anyone, they'll die the next page," it's rather discouraging. That, and gratuitous rape scenes and one of the female characters experiencing OOC Chickification in a latter book doesn't help either.

I also have zero interest in Ayn Rand. :P

I guess the Twilight series. Some family and friends like the series but I know I won't like it. I've read passages and such and it sounds terrible to me.

I have not yet read the last three Dresden Files books, although I have them. I want to read them - sometime - but I also know that the storyline gets very dark. So I've been putting it off until I feel ready to deal with it.
