Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.
This week’s list is all about popular books that lived up to the hype. We all know the ones… the ones that everyone is talking about. All too often books are destroyed by the hype monster for me. These are the books that worked for me…even though they were hyped!
Book images go to Goodreads!
