Ten Hyped Books I Haven’t Read

Hey guys!

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.

6. Cinder

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? 🙂

Hasta luego!

    I really hope you enjoy Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings when you get to them, both fantastic books. I'm reading Game of Thrones having watched the tv show, and it's fantastic. There's a lot more to it than the tv show so it's interesting seeing the additiona; story threads that never made it into the show. Great list!

  3. I enjoyed Twilight :p I do like the Harry Potter films.

  4. Thanks! I'll probably watch Game of Thrones rather than read the books.

  5. Lord of The Rings is an amazing read and so is Harry Potter! I love both series and have read both a couple of times and they are definitely must read. xx

  6. I've wanted to read them for years, I just keep putting it off haha

  7. I haven't read many of these either, just Harry Potter & The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

    Fifty Shades really isn't my cuppa tea, Game of Thrones and Lord Of The Rings I'm put off because of the size and I haven't heard of most of the others!

    I haven’t read a lot of these too! I still have the final HP book to read but tbh, I’m not mad on reading it. I love Harry Potter I’m just not BOTHERED. Same with Lord of the Rings – adore the films but have no desire to read the books.
