Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by, the one and only, The Broke and the Bookish!
This is my first time participating in TTT (or Triple T, call it whatever) and I’m SO EXCITED because LISTS! 😀
So, this week they’ve asked us to list the Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read.
This can go one of three ways: either I read some of the books
or, I read them halfway and stop. Don’t get me wrong, but some books don’t live up to their hype
or, I give them the cold shoulder.
Here we go:-
1) The Silmarillion – J.R.R.Tolkien
I’ve already read the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit and from that, I’ve learnt never to lose faith in the magic of Tolkien’s words. So, this is a big YES for me and I will make sure that I read it, no matter what!
2) Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I’m not sure about this book. My friend, who has watched the movie commented about it being weird and another friend, who’s read the book, stopped halfway. But I WILL give it a try.
3) The Mistborn Series – Brandon Sanderson
Looks right up my favourite genre. Medeival fantasy with magic? Hell yes!
4) Throne of Glass Series – Sarah. J. Maas
Another young adult but surprisingly, not in a dystopian setting. Is said to portray a strong female lead, so Hallelujah!
5) The Mara Dyer trilogy – Michelle Hodkin
The title gives me the spooks. The cover gives me the creeps. And the recommendations by the millions gives me enough goosebumps to start reading this series!
6) A Song Of Ice and Fire Series – George.R.R.Martin
Just, NO. I’m already in too deep with the show as it is. I would probably give it a go once the tv series is done.
7) Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell
Meh, another love story? Don’t sue me if I fall asleep in between.
8) The Mortal Instruments – Cassandra Clare
Ooooh, I remember this book being recommended soon after the success of The Hunger Games and the Divergent series. Maybe I should give it a go!
9) The Maze Runner – James Dashner
I know I know I should probably go bonk my head if I haven’t read something as popular as this series.
10) Fifty Shades of Grey – E.L.James
Not. Even. Interested. I watched the movie only because I was forced to by my annoying friends and if the movie indicates anything, it is that the book, is even worse.
So, that’s it! What do you guys think of the list? Should I give it a go or a no-go?Is it an “aye” or a “nay”? Should I read or nah?
If you have read any books that are good, do recommend! 🙂
