#TopTenTuesday – Hyped Books I Haven’t Read

This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish found here.  This week’s theme is top ten hyped books we’ve never read.

1.    I am on the waiting list at the library for this but someone I know broke down and bought a copy so I am waiting my turn for it.

2.  I’ve been on the waiting list for this for some time, but they just emailed to let me know I’m next 🙂

3.  This is an older book and was very controversial in its time and I still haven’t read it.

4.  Because I read a lot of mysteries, this book is always popping up on my recommendation lists.  I actually tried it once and just …couldn’t.  I teach middle school all day reading a book with a smart ass middle school age child as the protagonist…no.  This one will stay forever on my never read list.

5.  This one is super popular and plastered all over my local Barnes and Noble.  It is actually sitting on my bookshelf right now so I will get to it.

6.   This book appeared on a lot of lists but I am usually not a big historical reader.  I do think I will get to it…someday.

7.  This is another book I have seen referenced and on book blogs and lists.  I’ve read other Julian Barnes and enjoyed it so I am sure that I will get to this.

8. This one is sitting on my bookshelf right now just waiting to be read.

9.  I tried…I really tried but  

10.  Super hyped and zero interest from me.

Off now to see what others have listed 🙂

    I tried to read Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie too and just couldn’t do it. The book is YEARS old now but it’s still popping up everywhere! Really want to read Girl on the Train just to understand the crazy huge hype.

    I’m listening to Girl on the Train right now and enjoying it. It takes me forever to get through an audio book though so who knows when I’ll finish. I’m about half way through, I think. I hope you like it when you get to it.

    I don’t know what it is, but I can’t bring myself to read Bradley’s series. I am glad I am not the only one. At least you tried it.

    I loved Atonement. I have a copy of Goldfinch in my TBR collection too. I am not sure when I’ll get to it.

    Great list!

  3. I feel the same way about The Fault In Our Stars, I just can’t do it. Maybe one day my opinion of it will change.

  4. Maggie says:

    I was really hesitant about Wolf Hall and ended up loving it… though I am an avowed history nerd and Tudor fan, so maybe that’s why! I’m also quite curious about The Goldfinch.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    Hausfrau is another one that I need to read! I have read The Fault in Our Stars and The Girl on the Train, and they were both good reads!

    I read ‘The Goldfinch’ and really loved it. I think it deserved the hype!
