Kayla's Top Ten Hyped Books She’s Never Read
1. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
In addition to me being a book snob... Well, I’m just a book snob. One of the things I try to avoid – as long as I’m aware of it – is fan fiction based on someone else’s work being published as their own ideas. And if this wasn’t enough, there is always the poor writing in the portions that I was unlucky enough to glance at. Not. Happening.
2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I’m interested in it, but it’s never been enough for me to drop my review books and pick it up.
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I hear great things about The Book Thief, and I’m sure they’re true. That being said, I just don’t know if I can’t read about the Holocaust on the spur of the moment. I read Night by Elie Wiesel a year or so ago, so I’m going to have to wait until I’m in another sad book mood before I ever pick this one up.
4. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Everyone always talks about this book at my library, and all of the book clubs check it out, but I've never had the slightest interest in picking it up.
5. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
I'm really starting to think that I'm the only female alive that's never read this book. I've never watched the movie either.
6. Anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I'm sure her books are wonderful, but I'm already burned out from the hype itself. It could never be as good as what everyone makes it out to be. That being said, I do own several of her books, and I went to a convention in hopes of meeting her. Unfortunately, I was Jennifer Trout'ed, and it was Jennifer ArmIntrout not Jennifer L. ArmEntrout, who was lovely.
7. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
When I first started blogging, this took the blogosphere by storm. I felt like the only person who wasn't reading it. That is, until I got a copy for the library branch that I was working at, and it never circulated. It's already been purged from the system.
8. Easy by Tammara Webber
This is another one that I am pretty sure that I'm the only book blogger who reads YA who has not read this book. Contemporary isn't my thing, NA doesn't entice me, and I've never felt the urge.
9. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
If I see "World War" anywhere in a description, I usually keep on browsing. Code Name Verity was the exception.
10. John Green
I read The Fault in Our Stars because I work in a library, and I was starting to get really funny looks. I mean, how can I be a librarian who recommends books to young people and not have read it? Well, it was perfection, and I truly believe anything that I read after it will be a letdown. Also, he writes contemporary. Blerg.
Which hyped books have you missed?
