Top Ten Tuesday: Hyped Books I've Never Read

I had a hard time with this list, because I didn’t know how to classify “hyped.” I wasn’t sure if I wanted to list books hyped by pubs or by fellow bookish nerds. This is a combo of both, so here it goes!

1. Game of Thrones

2. We Were Liars

3. Jessica Darling series

4. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

5. Pushing the Limits

6. The Girl of Fire and Thorns

7. Since You’ve Been Gone

8. Isla and the Happily Ever After

9. Jellicoe Road/The Piper’s Son

10. Fangirl/Eleanor & Park

The END

    I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned as well except for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I really enjoyed that one and I hope you do too! By the way all of these are in my tbr list but I tend to read them once the hype has gone down a bit. Anyways great post and Happy reading!

    The Girl of Fire and Thorns is definitely a series that is on my radar! I really enjoyed Mara Dyer, but it certainly does divide people.

    Great list! Eleanor & Park and Fangirl made my list this week, too – it’s good to know I’m not the last person in the world who hasn’t read E&P!

    I’d quote like to read The Girl of Fire and Thorns, and I’d like to read something by Morgan Matson, too – I’ve heard a lot of great things about her books. :)

    Oh some of my favorites are on there! I LOVE Rainbow Rowell so Fangirl and Eleanor and Park. Also I adored Isla. Since You’ve Been Gove is a hyped one I still have yet to pick up. Great list!

    Love the Anna and the French Kiss series so so much. Eleanor and Park was a DNF for me though :( I’m very guilty of not reading GOT and the Mara Dyer books, ah! Good post, love :)

    Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta is AMAZING! Seriously, it’s one of my favorite books of all time. She’s a wonderful writer and her characters have so much depth and personality to them. If you’re ever looking for a great YA book to read, definitely start with this one! :)

    I haven’t read a bunch of these. I had a student who read Jellico Road and loved it so much I let her keep the book and I think she almost cried!

    So many here that are really great. Jessica Darling is so good, but it’s probably a little dated now. I was actually thinking of rereading if I can find it on audio.

    I haven’t read Isla yet either because I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for the paperback! I finally just preordered it from Amazon yesterday because it was on sale for $5.75!

    I FORGOT to add Jellicoe Road! I can’t believe I haven’t read that one. I have heard so many great things about it, but I just haven’t gotten around to it ! We’ll get to it one day!

    Great list!

    I hope these are on your TBR list… there are some amazing books on your list! I’ll try and tame the fangirl and just say Since You’ve Been Gone, Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, Jellicoe Road, Isla and Pushing the Limits are all great reads :)

    THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS. NO JESS, NO. You must go in a corner, and read that book! You can’t come out until you’ve finished it (says the girl who hasn’t read any of its sequels).

    Oh dear, Jess, I pretty much want you to read ALL of these. Melina Marchetta’s, especially, because that’s my girl. But also Rainbow’s, and Isla, and Mara, and Fire & Thorns. These are some of my favorite books! <3

    I JUST READ Since You’ve Been Gone. That was seriously an awesome book! Also Eleanor and Park and Fangirl are both fantastic. I really hope you read them! I have not read Game of Thrones and I really have no interest in that one.

    I would definitely say We Were Liars is very over-hyped, I mean it’s good but it’s not THAT good! Out of all of these I would say Fangirl and Game of Thrones are worth a read :-)

    Here’s my TTT if you would like to check it out :D Have a great day :-)

    The only book on your list I’ve read is Game of Thrones and I dnfed it at around 85% I just couldn’t anymore. I know people will probably hate me for that. ;] There are some good books on your list that I’ve been meaning to look into. I also prefer reading the hyped books later on, once the hype has passed.
