Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday, participating book bloggers blog about their top ten lists.

This Week’s Topic: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read


I’m fairly bad with keeping up on hyped books. I can safely say that I’m trying to catch up with reading hyped books and popular series but well… I’m trying. In fact, reading these somewhat hyped books is one of the things I’m trying to do this summer.

And yeah I don’t have super pretty book pictures but I do have two of the books on this list. That means I can actually take relevant book pictures and put this in my post. YAY! *Blows confetti everywhere*

And yeah two of those books aren’t on this list but they are equally as hyped and yeah I still haven’t read them…. I have tried picking up Shadow and Bone though! It just wasn’t the right time for me to pick it up. I’m a mood reader, okay? You can also see the mess that is my room in the background. It’s also really awkward trying to take a picture when you’re also listening to a song called Porn Star in the background and half leaning against a wall. Thank you, August Alsina for making a song that is simultaneously super chill and super explicit.

And sorry for reposting this. I had to go into the code to fix the formatting so it wasn’t like reading the whole thing in caps lock >.<


  1.  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
    I’ve read both Shiver and The Scorpio Races but I have yet to pick up the fan favorite, The Raven Boys. Part of it is laziness because I haven’t put a hold on it at the library but there’s also the fact that my friend wasn’t a huge fan and that scares me. I don’t always like being the black sheep.
  2.  Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang
    First, I wanna say that I actually have a friend with the same first and last name as the author! And I’ve heard really good things about this teen author and how her book has well written characters. I love good characters.
  3.  All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
    Well my friend read it before the hype really set in but now I’m seeing this book everywhere because it won the Pulitzer. Even people at my school that don’t really read all that much have talked about this book. I have a pretty good feeling about it.
  4.  The Giver (and the rest of the series) by Lois Lowry
    Movie came out last year and everybody went to see it (probably because of Taylor Swift to be honest) and I’m still sitting over here refusing to watch it because I haven’t read the book. I have a gorgeous gray and red bind-up of all 4 books so I don’t know why I haven’t read it.
  5.  If I Stay by Gayle Forman
    Same as above. Except there’s the fact that I actually read Just One Day and I didn’t like it.
  6.  The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
    One of my friends is convinced that I will love this book if I read it. Of course I still haven’t so that shows you how much peer pressure works on me when it comes to books.
  7.  This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
    This one hasn’t had huge hype but it has a lot of… ninja hype? What I mean is that even if it’s not the most hyped book (as of now), I’ve seen people briefly mention it on blogs and social media and it’s done enough to really pique my interest. I see this book everywhere.
  8.  Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas
    Same as above. Especially last year when the companion/sequel/sister novel, Dangerous Girls released.
  9.  Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
    Actually, you can just put all of Hoover’s books here because I swear I see her everywhere.
  10.  Splintered by A.G. Howard
    People at school have read it and there’s a few bloggers that repeatedly mention this book.
  11.  An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
    I was going to end the list before I realized that this is quite possibly the most hyped book of early 2015. And yeah. I still haven’t read it.

And that’s my list! Is there anything I’ve missed? Tell me about any of your favorite hyped books that I (probably) haven’t read yet! Or if I have read it, let’s talk! 🙂

  1. Falling Into Place is an ok read, although I wasn’t blown away by it. Most of the other titles are on my TBR as well.

  2. I feel that with a lot of books I read as well. When they get awards, it doesn’t really make me want to read them any more than I already do. But it happens even more when they get made into movies. Thanks for visiting!

  3. I read If I Stay years ago and wasn’t a fan of it. It was well written and I definitely see the appeal. It probably just wasn’t for me. But I hope you enjoy it more than I did! (Or maybe we’ll just be the two black sheep that aren’t moved by Forman’s stories. It’s all good, we can graze the reading grass together. Okay, I’ll stop now, lol.) And All the Light We Cannot See is a book I’ve meaning to pick it up, it just sounds so intriguing. Plus, the ratings for it have been phenomenal. And Raven Boys, ugh. I must read this soon as well. Fantastic list, Kelly!

    (And I haven’t gotten around to replying to comments on my Summer Says post the other day yet, but thank you for the sincere comment! For some reason it made me so emotional?? Especially since you typed that all out on your phone, haha.)

  4. Oh man I hope I do but if not… I love that analogy XD
    Thanks! I must say that this week’s topic was pretty easy which is kind of a bad thing because that probably means I should read more haha.
    (And no problem! I meant every word I said. You’re truly a great blogger :))

  5. I recently read The Darkest Minds, and it was pretty good! And I personally really like Falling into Place, Splintered, and This Song Will Save Your Life.
