Afternoon, it’s Tuesday and I feel like it’s going to be a wonderful day. It’s not often I feel so happy on a Tuesday but today, I cannot complain. Today’s post is once again a Top Ten Tuesday’s post and it’s the Top Ten Hyped books I’ve never read/I am yet to read. I’ve added the second because, as I’ve mentioned many a time, I on purposely it seems avoid *hyped* books. I think I just despise being told what to read and will instead reach for the most obscure book in its place. It’s often a mistake because I’ll end up reading said hyped book and have no one to discuss it with *wails.* For now these sit on my TBR, waiting for their time to shine.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
A book that has escaped me time and time again; when these came out I remember the excitement was ferocious. I was probably reading something unknown and smirking to myself. Now, I seem to have missed the boat by a mile.
A Game of Thrones by George R R Martine
So this book was recommended to me by my Dad I think? But even he has fallen waaaaaay behind with these books. I think that I might have enjoyed it but then again, probably not. Fantasy and all that?
The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis
So I’ve read the first book I believe and the second but not the last few. I had a number of copies handed down to me and thought I’ll get them all read when I was little younger but then books such as Judy Moody and the like took over and I completely forgot to get the entire series finished.
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
This list is becoming books I think I should have read? I think it comes from reading too many of those “100 books you should have read by now” and I manage to tick off my eleven out of 150. This is a book I’ve heard a lot about but so far has escaped my attention.
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Right, so this may come as a surprise to some, but this is my most lied about book. Whenever anyone asks whether I’ve read animal farm I always say yes and I haven’t. It’s a downright, blatant lie. So I need to read this, because I know there will be a number of shocked faces now I’ve finally admitted I haven’t (yet.)
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
I always see quotes from Shel Silverstein and this one I’ve always thought I should read and get reviewed. I think there are some books that are universally adored and this is one of them that I need to get read
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
No comment needed here?
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I see people reading this book on the tube allllll the time and it’s always one I’ve thought I should probably read.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Now, because I haven’t yet seen the film I think that this could be a book I enjoy and then see the films, but then again I probably won’t do either cause I’m that kind of reader
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
I’ve never read an Oscar Wilde and that makes me a bad reader. In my books anyway.
I’ve realised that these probably aren’t hyped books as such but are just books that you really should get round to reading. I need to go to the library later and I’m going to pick all of these up and make a fort and read them all and then review them. Just for you wonderful people, with some wine. As always, thank you to The Broke and the Bookish for such a wonderful bookish meme.’ Let me know which hyped books you can’t wait to read, or if any of these aren’t worth reading and we can discuss. Ciao.
