"Top Ten Tuesday" is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.This list could go on forever because I'm a slow reader and also a wary reader but I usually like jumping onto the hype train even if it leads to another train wreck. I guess I just want to experience the feels that everyone else is feeling so I could join in on their exciting conversations. The following books I might read or I might not, depends on whether I think the hype is "deserved"~
1. Grey by E.L. James - Hahahahahhhhaahahahahaahaa. Nope. Not for me.
2. Red Rising (Red Rising #1) by Pierce Brown - This book is supposed to have advanced army tactics and a passionate main character and I don't know why I haven't read it yet.
3. Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas - Second time it's on a "not read" list *the shame, shame, shame bell rings*. But I really have to catch up with this series since everyone is talking about some guy named Rowan Whitethorn on my Twitter and there are always ship wars and apparently Chaol's character gets horrible???? 0_0 Say it isn't so.
4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - I've read Marchetta's Finnikin of the Rock and her writing was amazing there so everyone immediately recommends all her other books for the same reason. I have zero idea what this story about but I still really want to read it.
5. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews - This is on my immediate TBR because the movie has been released (in worldwide cinemas?? I don't know) and it's been adored by everyone and I adore the trailer so I need.
6. Vicious by V. E. Schwab - *shame, shame, shame bell rings again*
7. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - BookTube was raving about this book even though it's been out for a while. I think it suddenly became popular because of the upcoming sequel (on July 14th), which has a cover so artsy that I want a poster of it.
8. Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon - This one was made popular by the TV show but it was already pretty popular on its own. I plan to read the book before marathoning the show but I don't know if it'll be happening any time soon since the book is a heavy tomb.
9. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - I don't know why I keep thinking this book is about a lighthouse horror story when it's actually a World War II story stretching from Paris to Germany. I have a morbid obsession with World War II period stories so I neeed this. It's also been praised by everyone and their father and a bazillion shiny awards.
10. To Kill a Mockingbird (To Kill a Mockingbird #1) by Harper Lee - This story is a classic and it's becoming an even more popular classic because it's probably the only classic I know of that's getting a sequel in modern days. Okay, the story isn't that old except that it is: 1982! And now a sequel in 2015! I'm still amazed for some reason and I haven't even read the first book.
Do you recognize any of the books above? Do you think the hype is "deserved" or a sham or did you not feel like there was any hype at all? Tell me your thoughts and don't forget to link to your TTT as well!
