This week, I’m mixing things up a bit and taking a break from Teaser Tuesday and instead participating in Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish for the first time. Today’s prompt is top ten hyped books I’ve never read. I like it, so I’m giving it a go.
I borrowed this from a friend around five years ago – she decided she wasn’t keen on it, so it’s totally okay that I kept it for that long – I definitely mean to read it and give it back one day, I just haven’t got round to it yet despite having had it recommended to me by so many people.
My boyfriend absolutely loves this and highly recommends it – along with plenty of other people – but I’m just not sure it’s my cup of tea.
I think when this originally came out and there was all the hype I wasn’t that into the genre, now I love the genre but I still haven’t got around to it, I’m hoping to soon.
Confession: I tried it, I really did – I just didn’t really get it. It’s not that I don’t like classics, I’ve happily read other novels written around this era. I just didn’t like this one. It felt a bit…shallow? Maybe it’s just me.
Another one my boyfriend loves, but I’m just a little bit intimidated by this epic saga.
I really really want to read this one. I’m just waiting for the price to drop on the Kindle store 😉 Is it worth the hype?
This one is majorly hyped on the blogosphere; I’m a little bit scared of not liking it. I read Rainbow Rowell’s Landline and thought it was just okay. But should I give her another chance with a young adult book?
I’ve seen the film, but I havent’ read the book! I really enjoyed the film as well, so I’m hoping to read this at some point.
I didn’t hear much about Neil Gaiman for ages, but as I got more into blogging he just started cropping up more and more. He’s definitely hyped. I’ve got this one on my Kindle and I’m really looking forward to reading it, I just haven’t got around to it yet.
This seems to be one of the original YA dystopian novels and, as a fan of the genre, I really should read it. But I saw the film and I wasn’t too keen. Should I give it a try?
What hyped up books have you not read? And which in list would you recommend? I’d love to hear – let me know in the comments!
