Top Ten Hyped Books I've Never Read

10. Catcher in The Rye by J.D. Salinger
I'm not a huge fan of the classics. Sue me.


9. Me, Earl, and The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
I have an ARC of this copy that I never picked up because I didn't feel like reading a book about a dying girl. I've heard it's super funny and all that but still...just can't do it.


8. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
I LOVED the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins so I have no doubt that I'll be a fan of Rebel Belle, I just haven't had the chance to get my hands on it yet.


7. To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Everyone seems to love this book and the cover is awesome so of course I want to read it, I just haven't yet.

6. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I actually got about 80 pages or so into this book but it just wasn't grabbing me so I quit reading it. Maybe I'll pick it up again someday but I make no promises as to when.


5. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I attempted to read The Monstrumologist and I felt like it was over my head so I put it down and have yet to pick it back up. I figured since I felt a certain way towards that book I'd feel the same about The 5th Wave.

4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Don't hate me but I read Eleanor & Park and reeeeally disliked it. I bought Fangirl on my kindle when it was on sale one day but I don't know if I'll pick it up anytime soon if ever.

3. Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken
I did read The Darkest Minds but I never picked up the other two books in the trilogy. I'm not sure why I just can't seem to bring myself to want to read them just yet - even though I loved the first book.


2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I did pick this book up but I read one or two pages and put it back down. I wasn't in the mood for it and I knew that if I read it then I wouldn't like it. I don't want to force myself to read a book but I do want to pick it up someday.

1. Harry Potter
I have never read any of the Harry Potter books because I suck. I've always wanted to read them but then I saw the movies and it was like well I've seen the movies and they're fresh in my mind so I should wait to read the books. Then I decided I'd read them as soon as I collected all of the books in the series. Currently I have all but the last book so we're getting closer.

    1. The funny thing was it's not like I hated it, but I couldn't get through it. I was intrigued enough to pick it back up again someday. Thank you!! :)

  2. Haha, I'm not a big fan of the classics either. I'd much rather read other books! You should definitely read Rebel Belle when you get the chance, it's pure amazing! Rachel Hawkins does not disappoint :)

  3. There's a lot of hyped books I haven't read. Lots of people have recommended The Hunger Games and John Green's books. THG just doesn't interest me and the main reason I haven't picked up JG's books is because I heard they are sad and I don't want the feels.
