Top Ten Tuesday: Hyped Books I've Never Read

Hosted By: The Broke and The Bookish
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish, where we list our top ten according to a topic of the week. I'm actually not participating in this weekly, only because I know that for some of the topics I really can't come up with a list of ten. For future topics though, check them out here. 

Top Ten Hyped Books I've Never Read

Off the top of my head these are just 10 I thought of. I say I'm a keen reader, but for all the books I've read there are many hyped books I've barely looked at. These 10 barely skim the surface - oops - but I've tried to include different genres.


1. Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
When this series was at its peak I was pretty much very disinterested, but when I decide I wanted to give it a try someone ruined the entire series for me. Much disappointment. So anger.

2. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger
A very well known classic, I think I did attempt it in high school but obviously that failed.

3. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This is so big over on BookTube and I'm pretty sure in the blogosphere as well. I am so intrigued but every time I go to buy it it never makes the final cut. One day, I promise, one day.

4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
About half way through. Will get to the other half some time soon. (I hope).

5. Shatter Me Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi
Pretty much the same story as the above books. Except there's not much of an urgency just yet.

6. Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu
See Shatter Me for basically the same explanation - although for this one the hype was a bit off putting.

7. 1984 by George Orwell
Or just about any George Orwell novel to be frank. Don't worry guys, I will get there. I will.

8. The Darkest Minds Trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
I actually really do want to read this. Probably when Summer break comes I will marathon all three novels.

9. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
The hype was so large, a movie was made out of it. I have not seen the movie either and I'm going to be perfectly honest and say I don't have intention to read or see either.

10. On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I'm not sure if this is still hyped but I've actually been pressured to read this, and have not been able to get past the first 50 pages. Maybe some time in the future I'll get around to it again. Maybe.
