Top Ten Books Hyped Books I've Never Read
Being a blogger, I notice hype a lot more. And sometimes I'll never understand why some books get the hype and really really deserving books don't. These are the ones I've shied away from because of the hype-monster
1. Kasie West- I've wanted to read her books, but there's just SO much talk about them, that I get nervous. Especially because I love Contemporary, so my expectations are high.
2. Sarah J. Maas- Her books are just !!!!! People are nuts for her anymore. I just don't think I can read a book so many people fangirl for. I have Throne of Glass, so we'll see if I can make myself do it.
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth- So hyped!! I saw the movie and that was enough for me... too much trying to be The Hunger Games for me.
4. The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski- Wow this book was everywhere last year!! I've heard great things about it, but it scares me.
5. The Selection by Kiera Cass- Another one that is just everywhere and won't go away.
6. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis- I KNOW this is nuts. I just.... well, when I thought about reading it, I was told it had a lot of religious undertones and I got scared. But everyone has read this book & it's talked about a lot.
7. Paper Towns by John Green- I bought it, but after TFIOS movie came out and the John Green-mania was at it's peak, I was just SO sick of hearing about John Green, that I just couldn't.
8. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel- This is one of those ones I bought because of the hype and hearing so many good things, started it and it didn't start out blowing my mind, so I put it down.
9. Gone series by Michael Grant- Same as with Station Eleven... bought it because of the hype, started it, wasn't impressed, stopped.
10. The Archived by Victoria Schwab- Same as above. Just did not think the beginning of this book was interesting at all.
What books has Hype killed or at least made you hold off on for a little while?
