Top 10 Tuesday: Hyped Books I've Never Read

         Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful people over at The Broke and the Bookish

       This weeks topic is books that have been hyped about but I have never read. Who knows. I might actually finish this list, since I haven't read a lot of the books that I hear people rave about constantly.

1.The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.

       I haven't read any of the books in this series. I tried reading City of Bones but I got about 70 pages into it and I just couldn't continue. I might try to pick it up again later since I bought the first 3 in a box set, but to be completely honest, it's probably on the very bottom of my list of books to read.

2. The Selection by Kiera Cass

       I am actually interested in reading these books, but I haven't seen it anywhere, not the library, not the bookstore...It's quite sad, really.

3. Paper Towns by John Green

This is another book I tried to read, but couldn't get into, and since the movie is coming out soon I know I'm not going to be able to escape hearing about it constantly.

4. Looking for Alaska by John Green

Yet another John Green book I haven't read. The concept of this one sounds interesting though, so I might get to it eventually, but to be honest John Green's books are kind of hit and miss with me.

5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

I usually enjoy books like this. Ones that put a twist on classic well known stories, like Alice in Zombieland or Dorthy Must Die and Cinder has been recommended to me countless times.

6. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Another book I own but haven't quite got around to it yet... 

7. Prodigy by Marie Lu
I would have read this already if I could find it in a library or paperback in a bookstore, because I'm cheap as heck and hardcovers just aren't in my budget, dude #thestruggleisreal.

8. If I Stay by Gale Forman

I should read it, I know.

9. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I really do want to read this but every time I pick it up to start, I'm always stop for like, no reason

10. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

To be honest with you I'm not that interested in reading this, and I probably won't. 


  1. "Paper Towns" is the only John Green book I've read, and I liked it well enough, but wasn't entranced.

    1. I found the idea of "Paper Towns" interesting but it just wasn't working for me.

  2. I didn't really like the TMI series either. I really wanted to put it down like you did but I really wanted to read the entire thing and see if it got any better. Unfortunately, things didn't improve all that much but I pushed through. I think I still will read The Infernal Devices series just to see if it's any better. There's still hope!

    1. I bought the box set with the first 3 and I couldn't even get through the first one. It's terrible and I feel awful looking at the set on my bookshelf that will remain forever unread...The Infernal Devices seems interesting, I will admit to that, but I am NOT buying them. Now way am I going to have another box set that has the potential to remain unread for all of eternity.

  3. Good list, I've been meaning to read If I Fall too. Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns are pretty good, but Alaska was better.
