Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This week's top ten theme is: Top Ten hyped books I've never read.  This is really similar to the May 5 theme of "Top Ten books I will probably never read".  My post that week can be found here.  But I'll try...

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
And I started with the same book.  Good or bad, this book is surrounded by hype.  And I have not read it.  Probably never will.

And another that was on my other list.  I really wonder, did I read the same book as everyone else?  the series was... okay.  But everyone rants and raves and loves it!  And so I have not picked up this sequel yet.

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)
So here's a change.  I actually really want to read this one.  I have it.  I just haven't gotten to it yet.

More Happy Than Not
I have heard nothing but praise for this book.  And I just jumped on the bandwagon and bought it.  So soon it should be off my list of not-read-hyped-books.

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)
I have this on my TBR list, but I'm a little frightened to read it.  I'm not big on historical fiction.  Am I going to hate it?

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)
Mixed reviews on this.  You either hate it or love it.  I had a pre-order of it and still haven't read it (which is sad since it came out in April).  The poor book has been on my shelf for months sitting next to The Arabian Nights without much love.  Maybe next year...

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)
Am I crazy? Am I weird?  I need to read this.  Or so I have been told hundreds of times.

Hidden Huntress (The Malediction Trilogy, #2)
So, what I read next is dictated by a few things. 1) Is it for review? 2) When did I receive the request? 3) How long is it?
Because I'm so far behind on my review books I haven't had much time to do my own pleasure reading much lately.  Hidden Huntress fails the first two questions.  And the third, well... It's a lot longer than some other books.  So it constantly gets shoved aside.

Twilight (Twilight, #1)
I will literally never read this series.  I don't care what you say.  It's not gonna happen.

My last pick doesn't have a cover.  I'm not sure it counts as hyped or even as a book.  But my last pick is The Starkillers Cycle by Sarah J. Maas and Susan Dennard found here on tumblr.  It looks wonderfully hilarious and something I need to read.  But that requires time.  Which is something I am very short on these days.

What hyped books have you not read?


  1. A few of these made my list too- Wrath and the Dawn, Raven Boys, and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I have owned The Raven Boys forever and heard tons of good things about the series, I need to get to it soon! Twilight was an absolutely addicting read as a teen, but if I were to read it now for the first time, I would hate it, so I don't blame you for passing on it.

  2. Good decision about TWILIGHT. I enjoyed THE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. I just got the Warth and the Dawn today. I hope to read it soon.

  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Raven Boys are so worth your time!

    Check out my TTT and my current giveaway.

  4. The Raven Boys is also on my list! I'll probably never read The Selection, doesn't sound like something I would enjoy. Although they didn't make it onto my list Grave Mercy, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, and The Wrath and The Dawn are all on my TBR.

    My TTT

  5. Yeah... I figured Grey and Fifty Shades would be on a lot of people's lists. The Raven Boys is so good. I should've put Grave Mercy on my list too, but I completely forgot about it, and I really want to read it. More Happy Than Not and The Wrath & The Dawn are so on my TBR pile.

    My TTT could've overlapped yours if I included the books I mentioned above.

  6. I have The Heir on my list this week too. I'm just not sure that I'm going to read it... My TTT!

  7. I'll never be reading Fifty Shades. Ever. I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone, though. I'll be reading More Happy Than Not soon, I'mreally looking forward to it. Great list!

  8. I need to read Smoke and Bone as well. I'm sure it'll be great I just haven't got to it yet! Fifty Shades and The selection are on my list as well, I've actually found both on a couple of lists looks like we're not all as aloe in this as we think haha
    The Raven Boys really does live up to it's enormous hype though!

  9. The only book I've read here is 50 Shades (oh god) and I didn't care for it. To be entirely honest I barely remember what even happened in any of them. I'm drawing a complete blank... Anyways I definitely need to add some of these to my ever-growing TBR! Especially Daughter of Smoke and Bone and More Happy Than Not. Good list :)

    My TTT!

  10. Yeah, I never plan to read 50 Shades. Didn't even think of that one! LOL! Wrath and the Dawn is on my list too but that's one I really do want to read! Hope if you read any of these someday you enjoy them!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
