Top 10 Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

Every Tuesday the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish host a book related Top 10.


This week is “Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read”.  Since I did “Top 10 Books I’ll Never Read” earlier this year I limited this list to hyped books I still REALLY want to read, but just haven’t yet.

Hyped Books 1-4

Ready Player One by Earnest Cline – I heard about this book when I first started blogging three years ago and it sounds great…I just haven’t gotten to it/

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson – A more recent book, but lots of bloggers whose opinion I generally agree with loved this book. 

Life of Pi by Yann Martel – How have I not read Life of Pi yet?  I won’t let myself watch the movie until I read the book and yet still haven’t (I own the physical book and ebook).

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – This honestly didn’t join my TBR until recently – it’s so LONG – but my cousin Mara loves it so I want to give it a shot.

Hyped Books 5-8

The Giver by Lois Lowry – I feel like an imposter as a dystopian fan with this book still unread.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty – I’d never heard of Liane Moriarty until about a year ago, but now they are EVERYWHERE.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – Another long time book on my TBR that I just haven’t gotten to yet.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore – Ditto above – I also own physical and kindle copies.

Hyped Books 9-12

The Maze Runner by James Dashner – I go back and forth on The Maze Runner.  Recently a coworker raved about it making me decide I should give it a shot.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold – This might be the book on this list that I’ve been aware of the longest.  My mom recommended it ages ago and I always intended to read it.  Still do.

Girl on a Train by Paula Hawkins – I’m reading it this week.  It’s a library book and it’s due back Saturday with a 100+ wait list. Have to read it this week!

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – Pulitzer prize winner this year that I’m actually excited about. I bought it about a month ago, but library books have taken precedence.


  1. You have so many good books on your list! I really liked The Lovely Bones, The Giver and Graceling, and Life Of Pi is really good too. I hope Girl On A Train and Ready Player One live up to the hype. Happy reading!

  2. Great list! I totally empathize with library books & their due dates taking precedence over bought books. Here's my <a href=">TTT</a>. Happy reading!
