Top Ten Tuesday: Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

TTT Header

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. I tend to read a lot of hyped books and then get really disappointed in them, but I still keep picking them up! Here are some that I haven’t tried yet.

3

1. Well, let’s get this one over with. I have yet to read any of the Harry Potter series. I made it a reading resolution this year to do it, but let’s be real. I won’t.

To Kill a Mockingbird

2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I didn’t have to read this in school, but for some reason I’ve always thought of it as a “school book” and thus it doesn’t interest me.

Wuthering Heights

3. Wuthering Heights. I do want to read this some day. But I have a feeling I’m not going to like it, so I keep putting it off.

Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)

4. Snow Like Ashes. I got this from the library once, but I was in a book slump and never read it before it expired. I still love the cover, though.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

5. A Court of Thorns and Roses. I’m pretty sure this is another hyped book that is just going to set me up for disappointment. Every review I see is 4 or 5 stars, it’s everybody’s favorite book of the year. I had no intention to read it, because I hated (HATED) Throne of Glass by the same author, but I’ve definitely let the hype get to me. I’m next in line for it on the library waiting list.

6. All the Bright Places. I actually own a copy of this book, but I just haven’t been in the mood to read something so depressing.

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)

7. The Infernal Devices series. Everyone says this is way better than the Mortal Instruments series, but ever since reading City of Heavenly Fire, I’ve had no interest in reading it since that book kind of gave spoilers from this series.

The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike, #1)

8. The Cuckoo’s Calling. I own a copy of this book, too. It looks big, though, which always intimidates me. Plus I kind of feel like I should read the Harry Potter series before reading the author’s other work. It doesn’t make sense.

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)

9. If I stay. I was determined to read this book for quite awhile, but I decided I really have no interest in it. I actually took it off my TBR list.

10. The Winner’s Curse. I started this once, but couldn’t get into it. But because of all the hype I haven’t felt like I could blow it off entirely.

WHAT HYPED BOOK HAVE YOU NOT READ YET? HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THE ABOVE BOOKS?

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Want To Start

2824d-toptentuesday2

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is: Top New Series I Want To Start. They suggested “New” as in the last year or so, but I think I’m just going to go with series in general. There are some I’ve been meaning to start for awhile.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling Yes everyone in the book blogging world has read this series except for me. I saw one of the movies…

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I’ve heard great things about this series and I even own the first book, I just haven’t started it yet.

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)

3. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I complained in my review of the last book of the Mortal Instruments series that characters from the Infernal Devices made appearances and I didn’t understand the full impact of it. AND everyone says this series is way, way better than TMI.

Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)

4. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. Mostly because I like the cover!

I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)

5. Jasper Dent by Barry Lyga. I think this book looks really interesting! AND I just realized there’s 3 books already published in the series!

Outlander (Outlander, #1)

6. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I haven’t seen the tv show, but everyone seems to be watching it. I read a review of one of the episodes that compared it to the  book and the book actually sounded better (though the show sounded good, too).

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)

7. Firebird by Claudia Gray. Again, the cover!

The Fine Art of Pretending (The Fine Art of Pretending, #1)

8. The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris. Because I love the fake relationship trope and this  book is taking forever to come off the waiting list at the  library!

Tomorrow, When the War Began (Tomorrow, #1)

9. Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden. I’ve heard great things about this book and even hosted a guest review and a giveaway of the book and have STILL to read it!

The Return (Titan, #1)

10. Titan by Jennifer Armentrout. Despite the awful cover and my trepidation of it being NA, Seth was probably my favorite character in the Covenant series, so I need to see what happens to him!

WHAT SERIES ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO STARTING?
