Hi everyone! As usual, it’s Top Ten Tuesday. This meme is created and hosted by the ladies at The Broke and The Bookish who every week create a new list for book bloggers to participate in. To see future lists, you can go here. This week’s list is. . .
~Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read~
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know, I know! I completely plan on reading this book and the entire series, I just….don’t know when. I tried to a few months in the buddy read with Holly, Val and Shannon and I completely failed. Sorry about that again, guys. But with Queen of Shadows coming out, I do want to read these books soon!
A Court of Thorn and Roses (#1) by Sarah J. Maas
There’s no surprise this book is here. I’ve seen it hyped and then I’ve seen some people who did not love it, so this will be a toss up in the air as to if I like it or not. 🙂 But I generally like hyped books. Plus this is Beauty and The Beast inspired-ish, so I’m really interested in it.
The Wrath and the Dawn (#1) by Renee Ahdieh
I have had this book since APRIL and I haven’t read it. I know, what a horrible person! I read a little bit of it though! By a little bit, I mean a page or two. Literally, I only read a page or two. But what a compelling couple of pages they were!
An Ember In The Ashes (#1) by Sabaa Tahir
Aw, yep… Like ACOTAR, I’ve seen good reviews and less than good reviews. This has a Roman type setting though and a dark, grim time period, so I’m all in! It’s been compared to Game of Thrones which I assume is for the gore and sexual aspect in it. GoT has been bothering me quite a bit in the latter half of the season so I’m not sure how I’ll feel about this.
The Winner’s Curse (Series) by Marie Rutkoski
With The Winner’s Kiss coming out next year, I really need to read this duology/trilogy. I think I may still be doing a buddy read of this book at some time, but I’m not sure when. But yes, when I read it, you’ll know!
The Kiss of Deception (Series) by Mary E. Pearson
Are you happy Holly? Here’s your book! I know, I know, I need to read this. I know, I should have read it a long time ago. I knowww. I promise I’ll read it.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Fun story time! I almost got an ARC of this book but because I was already a bit over my arc “level of sorts”, I had to decline. Yes, decline. I declined THE book. What was I thinking? I don’t know! I still kick myself everytime I see praise of this book. And it’s Beauty and The Beast fairytale inspired-ish. And that cover! WHAT WAS I THINKING? *kicks self*
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
The first non fantasy book on my list! Astounding! This book came to mind because it’s an option on my Make Me Read It Read-A-Thon poll and because it’s just one of those contemporary I should have read a long time ago. Fail. Fail fail fail.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer
If you think there’s a trend in this list of books, you’re probably right! I lack greatly when it comes to fantasy reads. I have no idea why I haven’t read this book. I have the first three books. It’s just weird. Years ago when Cinder came out, I looked it in Barnes and Noble and though Oh, that’s a pretty cover. Oh, that sounds interesting. and left it alone never to return. Until I joined the blogosphere and saw that this book is highly highly loved. Now I feel like I’m missing out.
This book has been recommended a lot. Who all by? I don’t even know. I know Holly’s recommended it, Cait’s recommended it,…That’s all I can think of right now, ha.
That is my list! Tell me if you’ve read any of these books, if you think I should read them.
NOW, I have a poll for you to vote on if you have not already done so. Only one of these books are on the list, but you know, that is just a minor detail. So if you wish to, please go here and vote on three books I should read. 🙂
