Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read.
I’m sticking to books that have gotten a lot of attention (and praise, adulation, etc.) in recent years, so you won’t find any classics on this list. In alphabetical order:
The Book Thief and The Fault in Our Stars are both on my TBR list, and I hope to read at least one of them before the year is out. I don’t think I’ll ever read A Game of Thrones, despite my love of high/epic fantasy.
I’m not planning on ever reading The Girl on the Train, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or Gone Girl. But while we’re here – what’s the deal with all the “girl” titles, anyway? I find the impersonalization/objectification rather disturbing. Not to mention that all of the title characters are women, not girls.
I might read The Hunger Games someday, but I definitely plan to read The Martian this year – as soon as I can squeeze it in!
I have both Outlander and Throne of Glass on my TBR list, but I don’t know when I’ll get to them.
City of Bones and Wild are two more titles I might – just might – get around to someday.
So what are your top ten unread “hyped” titles? And do you think you’ll ever read them?
