Top Ten Tuesday: Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This time, featuring the top ten hyped books I’ve never read. All book covers from Goodreads.

Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

1. Eragon by Christopher Paolini


I had a lot of people recommend Eragon to me when I was a teenager, but I just never got around to reading it.

2. Divergent by Veronica Roth


Though I have no plans to read the book or watch the movie, the Honest Trailer for Divergent is hilarious!

3. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James


Just not my cup of tea.

4. The Help by Kathryn Stockett


I enjoyed the movie, but have no plans to read the book.

5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green


I think I’m afraid this book might make me cry as much as I did while watching The Lovely Bones.

6. Inferno by Dan Brown


The Dan Brown Sequel Generator (back when it worked) says it all.

7. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


Perhaps it’s because I read it during the tail-end of my YA phase, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book in The Hunger Games.

8. The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I already read Twilight.

9. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


This is a book I wouldn’t mind reading and I’m sure I would enjoy the show, but I haven’t yet had the chance to start binge-watching all of the seasons. I’m sure it would happen soon enough.

10. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead


I might have enjoyed this book, but I discovered it when I was well past my YA phase.


Which hyped books have you never actually read?

    I love John Green and therefore was one of the first to read The Fault in Our Stars. I am a huge fan.
    The Help is such an important book. But if you’ve seen the movie I can understand why you haven’t gotten to the book yet.
    Have fun reading.

      Thanks for stopping by! Is the movie adaptation of The Help pretty close to the book? When it comes to movie vs. book, if I already saw the movie I tend to read the book only if there were important details the movie skimmed over.

    • Zed Amadeo

      Haha thanks for the warning about Eragon! I watched part of the movie awhile back when it came on TV but I can’t remember a thing about it – I guess that’s a bad sign.

  2. Ronnie Reads and Reviews

    I’m sure many people have said this before but the ASOIAF series is really worth the read. As the TV series went on there was progressively more changes to the plot and more material that they skipped over. Still it’s a good TV show and a good book series.
    Eragon was not that great-I can’t say much for the rest of the series but you’re not missing much.

    • Zed Amadeo

      I’ve had a lot of people recommend both the book and the TV series to me. I’m sure I’d like it if I gave it the chance, and I do hope to read it someday. As for watching the show, I need to find an ideal time when I can binge-watch every season.
