Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read
Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
1 – The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien
I’m a big Tolkien fan, but of the Tolkien Peter Jackson adapted into the Lord of the Rings movies. I’ve watched the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings movies at least a dozen times each, and I’ve never read the book. I tried once, but the heavy description and archaic language didn’t hold my interest. They are classics of high-fantasy, but it is one of the rare times I prefer the movies to the books.
2- A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin
I want to read these books, but after watching the show, reading the book might just feel like watching the show again.
3 – Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Too much romance rubbish. I’ve never had any interest in reading the books or watching the movies.
4 – The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
Like Twilight, this series has never interested me much. Too much romance.
5 – The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling)
I’m a big fan of the Potter books, but Rowling’s first crime novel disappointed me. Hopefully one day she will go back to writing fantasy.
6 – The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
There’s no reason I haven’t read this famous series. I just never got around to it.
7 – Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The premise of X-Men meets Game of Thrones is wicked, but the romance and dystopian elements put me off.
8 – The Book Thief by Markus Zusack
I’ll read this one day.
9 – Lies (Gone series) by Michael Grant
I was a little disappointed by Hunger, the second book in the Gone series, after reading the cool and crazy Gone, and it made me hesitate reading the rest of the series. One day, I’ll finish it.
10 – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I’ve heard as many good reviews for this book as bad. People say the plot is slow and the photographs don’t add anything to the story. With Tim Burton directing the movie, it could be worth a watch.
