I’ve been reading a lot of Top Ten Tuesday posts about hyped books that people still haven’t read and thought I’d do my own one.
1. Fifty Shades of Grey
I started this book a couple of years ago, just to get a sense of what it’s like. I’ll admit that I read the first few chapters and thought they were quite good – however, I flicked through and realised that it was definitely NOT my kind of book! I don’t get the hype – why do so many people want to read a book like this?!
2. The Lord of the Rings
I’ve read The Hobbit so I think that I will enjoy The Lord of the Rings. My mum actually has a copy so I pinched it before we moved house so that I’d have no reason not to read it at some point!
3. Harry Potter
Since I am such a bookworm, it’s pretty shocking that I have not yet read ANY of the Harry Potter books. I don’t know why – we did have the books years ago. I think I will read them at some point – probably when I’ve finished uni.
4. Gone Girl
I was planning to read this last summer but didn’t in the end. I guess uni and essays [and other books] got in the way.
5. Game of Thrones
The size of the books kind of put me of – I may be a bookworm, but I’m not keen on long books.
Cinder seems like an interesting take on Cinderella. I guess I’ve read a lot of dystopian books recently so it will be a while before I read Cinder.
7. Perfect Chemistry
I am going to read this before I go back to uni and that’s a promise. I’ve wanted to read it for over a year.
8. Alice In Zombieland
It’s got good reviews, and I love Alice In Wonderland, so I’m sure I’ll read this soon.
9. Eleanor and Park
It’s on my TBR list for after uni 🙂
10. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
I don’t know, I guess this book doesn’t really appeal to me.
What “hyped” books have you not yet read? Are any the same as the ones I have mentioned? 🙂
