Top Ten Tuesday | Popular Books That Lived Up to the Hype

 

Hello, dearies!

Here comes another Top Ten Tuesday. Who’s ready?! I cannot believe it’s the end of July. I don’t. I feel as if I’m getting a grasp on my blog, then I forget to post anything. This month is going by so fast that I cannot keep up with everything.

So for this week’s topic, we get to pick which books live up to the hype. And while I’d love to talk about books I’ve already listed (and since I can’t read 100 books like some of you freaky readers), I want to highlight hyped-up books I want to read. Savvy? Good. Because I don’t know what else to post. πŸ˜‚

 

Lifel1k3

This cover is killing me right now. I cannot get over the design and colour (and I’m not a huge fan of yellow). I need to start reading Kristoff books. I can’t keep putting them off. I first heard of Lifel1k3 from the blogosphere, and I knew I had to read it.

 

A Conjuring of Light

I’ve just finished A Gathering of Shadows, and I know I’ll need to read the finale soon because right now, I’m worried about my babies. This series is one of my favourites, and I’m so happy that Victoria is expanding the universe!

 

The Hate U Give

I’ve been wanting to read this. But a part of me worries it may just break me in several jagged pieces, and I’m not sure if I can put myself back together. I watched the movie trailer though, and I need to talk myself up to this book asap. I can’t miss it.

 

Stalking Jack the Ripper

How can I pass up a fantastic ya historical series? I’m still trying to figure that out. But fear not! I may just binge buy the three books eventually. I’ve heard nothing but praise of the series, and I’m eager to see how the author incorporates history into her writing.

 

Children of Blood and Bone

The hype surrounding the book has swayed me not to read it immediately off the shelves. I’ve been going back and forth with buying it, but I need to stop psyching myself out.

 

Ready Player One

A dystopian landscape, virtual reality, 80s and 90s culture all thrown together to make a sci-fi book readers need to read. What more can a reader ask for? The mixed reviews have kept me away from this, but once I heard about the movie and the sequel, well, it moved up on my TBR list.

What do you think of my choices? Did you love reading them? Did they not live up to the hype? Let’s chat!

  1. I loved Children of Blood and Bone; Ready Player One, not so much. The whole book felt like the author’s weirdly over-the-top excuse to show off his knowledge of 80’s pop culture trivia, to the point where it overshadowed the actual story, in my opinion.
