Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

toptentuesday2

 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish (That sounds like a sponsor add before your show comes back on (the Tennis is brought to you by Nike)

So this week’s theme is Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read and as I sat down to write the first titles that came to my head the list became somewhat of an embarrassment. It’s okay for you to wave the shame stick in my face because that fact I haven’t read some of the books on this list is a tad humiliating as these are staples.

Without further ado, in no particular order I have never read….

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins – I shall now stand quietly as you all absorb that. … … … I read like half of the first one way back before the movies where a thing and I just kept getting so frustrated that Katniss was playing with Peta’s feelings that I kind of gave up on the story. And then the movies got made so I was like *I don’t really have to read them now to find out what happens*.

Which funny enough is my excuse for the next six on my list.

The Maze Runner series by James Dashner – I just never got around to it and then they started making the films so I was like *well now I never have to*. I do think the books would better show the friendship between the people in the Glade then the movie does, I reckon there would probably be some pretty awesome side characters in the books that aren’t represented in the movie.

Divergent series by Veronica Roth – I actually read the first book and I loved it and had every intention of reading the rest of the series but then again they started making the films and I decided just to wait for the films.

Do you see the pattern occurring?? 

Fifty Shades of Grey series by E. L. James – I read the first one thought very little of it and then never went back to read the others and now they’re making the films and I don’t have to.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky – Now don’t hate me but the idea of this book *mumbles* doesn’t really interest me. I haven’t even seen the movie.

The Fault in Our Stars by James Green – I’m just going to be blunt… I really don’t like cancer books. I find them so upsetting and depressing and I guess… real. When I read fantasy books where the protagonist has a terrible life because of something or another it doesn’t really get to me as I know it’s fiction but when I read about something terminal illness I get really down and depressed and end up in tears. So I have no interest in reading A Fault in Our Stars, I’ve seen the movie and that was hard enough.

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – I have a little bit of knowledge about what these books are about and apparently they’re really good and then they made it into a movie and now there making it into a TV series (which am I the only one that thinks making it into a TV series is way more exciting than into a movie? Because you get weekly doses instead of having to wait a year!!). So I’m kinda like (again) I don’t really have to read it.

The-Mortal-Instruments

The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare – I know even less about Infernal Devices then I do about Mortal Instruments but I know that the people who read this book absolutely LOVE it. I actually kind of want to read it, but then I’d have to read mortal instruments to understand what the hell was happening and it’s all just a hassle so I’m not going to.

The Selection series by Kiera Cass – Now I have heard that you either love this series or you hate it and I kinda think from what I know about it that I may be on the side of hate it. And plus now they’re making it into a movie so I don’t really have to.

The Young Elites series by Marie Lu – This is probably the least known series on this list and it’s also probably the only book on this list that I have a strong plan to eventually read.

  1. I think you can read TID without reading TMI first. That’s the way I read it, and though it might be a little too much to absorb in the first few pages, you can certainly catch up with it 🙂 They are both great, but I personally prefer TID 😀

  2. I’ve actually seen The Hunger Games on multiple lists today. And omg don’t wait for the divergent movies they’re so different from the books!
    I haven’t read Maze Runner either. My sister just read it and wants me to but my TBR list has like 6573241354 books on it so maybe some day lol.

    I read The Young Elites as soon as it came out and… I was so disappointed. I love Marie Lu’s writing but… I couldn’t get into the book. It was slow and not much seemed to happen. While I think it being longer could have helped more happen, the only thing that made me finish it was because it was so short. I didn’t like The Selection. Okay i didn’t hate it but… It’s The Bachelor plus royalty. ugh! Great list!

  3. I haven’t read a single one on your list either. The only one that really tempted me was The Fault in our Stars. I was just like you though and thought it would be too sad. My local librarian told me not to bother with Fifty Shades of Grey, but she did say she loved The Hunger Games. Didn’t persuade me, it just doesn’t sound like my cup of tea.

    I have a Teaser Tuesday today for a book I’ve been trying to get to for months and finally – The Magic Circus. http://wp.me/pZnGI-o1

  4. I personally hate The Selection, any kind of “reality show” element in books is usually off-putting to me. I enjoyed Cassandra Claire for a while, but I personal think there are better books out there. The Young Elites is good but not great, I’m still interested to know where the author will be taking her characters with this one.
