Top Ten Tuesday #30: Hyped Books I've Never Read


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly Top Ten list hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Hyped books are scary! If everybody is raving about a book and seems to love it I always go in with sky high expectations, and having high expectations and being let down is awful!

Books I Will Get Off My Lazy And Read

Allegiant by Veronica Roth has only been sitting on my shelf for a year and a half. I did the very stupid thing and started reading reviews and people didn't love the end. I LOVE the series, I love Tris and Four and I don't want to not love them because of the end. So right now my motto is "Ignorance is bliss". Some time I'll get to it though, it might just take another year and a half.

I've just never gotten around to reading Legend by Marie Lu, it's definitely high on my TBR though!

I've been meaning to read A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer for 10 years! Refiding it for this list means I have to go to the library tomorrow.

The Duff by Kody Koplinger. I won't make the same mistake as I did with the Maze Runner. I WILL read the book before I see the movie!

Some of my favorite blogger have all read and loved Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and I'm super scared of this one. By the blurb it's not something I would be super excited about so we'll see how it goes.


Books I Will Probably Never Read

The book Thief by Markus Zusak is super duper hyped and I really have no interest in reading it. It just doesn't entice me in any way. But I bought it for mom, much more her kind of book, so I might pick it up if I've got a couple of hours over when I'm visiting.

As I mentioned above I made the HUGE mistake of falling for temptation of watching the movie before I read the book. And now I just can't make myself read Maze Runner by James Dashner, with knowing all the spoilers and all.

Both Rainbow Rowell and John Green are both mega popular in the the last couple of years, and I don't even want to try. None of Rowell's blurbs have interested me and I read Looking for Alaska and I just can't make myself go through something like that again. Just not my thing.

What about you? What hyped books haven't you read but want to? What hyped books won't you read? Let's discuss!

  1. Your views on Allegiant made me laugh! I was totally spoiled by some brat on Goodreads and let me tell ya, it made reading Allegiant painful. Overall, I didn't really like the book. So keep on enjoying your blissful ignorancce. Eleanor and Park was so not worth the hype in my opinion either! Great post :)

  2. I feel the same way on John Green and Rainbow Rowell. To be honest, I didn't even find TFIOS that interesting. Check out my list (although, not the same topic) on my blog here: https://princessicaofbooks.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/top-10-tuedays-standalones/

  3. A Child Called It is heartbreaking. A very difficult read, at least it was for me.

  4. I haven't read Allegiant yet also. I didn't even read Insurgent yet! But hopefully, I'll get around to them!
