Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post actually reminds me of one we did a while ago where we talked about books we’ve never read that we feel like everyone else has. For the most part, I actually do read quite a lot of “hyped up” books, although there are some that I have no intention of reading. This list is a mix of the two – ones I want to read, and ones I don’t want to read. So, here we go!
1) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (+ any other John Green book)
I feel like I’m being weird with John Green, but … I just have no interest in reading his books. I’ve looked a couple of times at An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Towns, but this one – the one that literally is hyped EVERYWHERE – has never once gained my interest.
2) Catching Fire/Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games – for me – was BRUTAL. I know that’s the point, but I just … can’t bring myself to read the rest of them.
3) Divergent (and sequels) by Veronica Roth
Another series that I’m just NOT interested in. I have no intention of ever reading these books.
4) Delirium (and sequels) by Lauren Oliver
Since I actually own the first two books in this series, I do intend to read it. You know, at some point.
5) The Girl of Fire and Thorns (and sequels) by Rae Carson
Another series I plan on reading, mostly because a friend of mine really enjoyed it. And I’m pretty much always interested in YA fantasy titles.
6) The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
I own the first two of these as well, so will probably get to them eventually.
7) Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Definitely going to read this one. I just need to prepare myself before I do.
8) Across the Universe (and sequels) by Beth Revis
I’m so torn on this series. On the one hand, book one is on my Goodreads To Read list. And yet … I’m kind of not interested? I dunno.
9) Anna and the French Kiss (and companion novels) by Stephanie Perkins
I know, I know. I am probably the only person in existence who hasn’t read this book. I do want to, and yet, I keep passing it over for other things. Maybe it’s because of the hype? So many people adore this book (as well as Lola and Isla) that I’m worried it’s not really all that great.
10) If I Stay/Where She Went by Gayle Forman (+ all other Forman novels)
I actually own these two, and I THINK I have Just One Day on my Kindle, and yet have never read any of them. I do plan on it, because I’ve heard amazing things about Gayle Forman’s writing, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
So that’s my list this week! Which titles made your list? Please link me in comments!
