Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten Hyped Books That I’ve Never Read. I hope I don’t offend anyone with my choices!

As ever the book images go to Goodreads!

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo- Stieg Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

I don’t know what it is about this series, it just doesn’t seem to appeal to me at all. I don’t have any desire whatsoever to read it, even though I know it’s supposed to be amazing!

A Game Of Thrones- George R. R Martin

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

I’m just stepping into the world of fantasy and I have to admit, the size of this book and the length of this series puts me off!

Red Rising- Pierce Brown

Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1)

Hmm… I keep seeing this series around and I’m not sure that I want to read it!

The Heir- Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

I have such trouble with this one. The cover is BEAUTIFUL and I enjoyed the series enough, but I just feel like it’s being dragged out a little? Feel free to convince me otherwise…

City of Bones- Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

My good friend really enjoys Cassandra Clare’s writing. I’m just not sure I want to commit myself to another series…

Lord of The Rings- J.R.R Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

Lord Of The Rings is another epic read which I don’t think I’ll get around to. I have no interest in it. I’ll go hide now…

Dracula- Bram Stoker

Dracula

I know the story, I’m just not compelled to read the story.

It- Stephen King

It

My sister picked this one for me. She really doesn’t think I’ll EVER read this book. I think she’s right…

The Poisonwood Bible- Barbara Kingsolver

The Poisonwood Bible

I’ve heard good things about this book. I may read it in the future, it’s just not one that stands out to me right now.

The Cuckoo’s Calling- Robert Galbraith

The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike, #1)

I have had this book for so long waiting to be read, but again… not compelled to read it!

Have I mentioned any of your favourites? Feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten posts and I’ll stop by! 🙂
