Top 10 Hyped Books I've Never Read

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I haven't seen the movie either.

This came out too close after my mom was
diagnosed with cancer. Now that a couple of years
have passed I want to read it. Haven't seen the movie either.
Goodreads


3. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children-
I've just never wanted to read this.

5. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard-I've heard mixed things;
still haven't got to it.

6. The Winner's Curse by  Marie Rutkoski-I plan to remedy this one.
Goodreads

7. The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitgerald-
Everybody tells me I need to read this.

8. The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo-I really
need to read this one. I hear it's great.

9. Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott-Yet another one I've never read.

10. The Road by Cormac McCarthy-
This one practically had a cult following and
I still didn't read it.

I love reading them. :)

    1. Sigh! I still need to read Red Queen and The Winner's Curse.

      Miss Peregrine has just never appealed to me.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. The Winner's Curse is a really great trilogy so far! I haven't read Little Women yet either, but I need to remedy that. Great List!

    1. I really need to read Winner's Curse. Little Women sounds great, but I just never have read it.

      Thanks for sharing!

  3. Seeing Gone Girl on lots of lists - I would avoid it honestly. I found the characters so depressing and cruel. Why I love YA fiction more! I also had a challenging time choosing. An interesting process.

    1. I appreciate your insight. That's also why I love YA too. Thanks for sharing.

  4. You totally just reminded me that I need to read The Red Queen! I completely forgot about that book.

  5. Oh, my goodness...I haven't read Miss Peregrine's either! I forgot about that book! I do want to. The Winner's Curse was just "meh" for me. Red Queen is on my list, too. Hopefully we'll both get to read it soon!

  7. The Road was an okay read I thought... Not bad or great. I really liked The Fault in Our Stars though. :-)

    1. Most people seemed to love it, so it's surprising to hear you didn't.

  8. I've read "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" but I must say that I prefer the movie. I still gave the book a 4 star rating on Goodreads I think. "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Little Woman" were favorites for me. As for the other books, I have yet to read them, too :)
    And thank you for your comment on my TTT :)

    1. I'm glad you liked them. Makes me want to read them too.

  10. I had such a hard time choosing my top ten because there are so many books that fit the bill. We share two novels in common: Gone Girl and Red Queen for similar reasons I think.
    Great list! And I hope you get to Perks soon. It's one of my all-time favorites!

    1. I'll hopefully read it eventually. Thanks for commenting.

  11. I tried Miss Peregrine's once, but just could not get into it. I definitely recommend Gone Girl and would say pass on Red Queen!

    1. I just don't think I'd like it. Thanks for the advice.

  12. Great list! I loved Gone Girl! It definitely opened the door to psychological thrillers. I enjoyed Miss Peregrine's. It is definitely a unique book. I have read The Fault in our Stars and it is a beautiful and well-written book!

    1. I just am hesitant about Miss Peregrine's. The fact that you like it makes me more inclined to read it.

      Thanks for sharing.

  13. I've read a few of these, unfamiliar with a few...but The Road, Oh my! I haven't read it, but I have read Cormac McCarthy (Blood Meridian) and my goodness what a horrifically violent tale...and yet captivating.

  14. I've read John Green's and will confess to liking it more than anticipated. Really want to read Red Queen, but have heard the same as you. Also The Winner's Curse! That looks and sounds amazing. Fun list. :)

  15. Little Women was one of my favorite books when I was a young teen! I need to go back and re-read some of my favorites by Alcott.
    Otherwise though, I have no interest in most of your list (with the exception of Red Queen). John Green doesn't interest me, nor does Gone Girl.

  16. I'm reading The Winner's Curse and so far I love it! The setting is amazing and it has forbidden love! TFIOS was an okay read for me. It's beautiful, but it didn't make me cry. I never read The Perks of Being a Wallflower too though I like the movie. Great list :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm so happy to see some classics on your list, Danica. I need to get to those too. But, GIRL!!! The Perks of Being A Wallflower is an absolute must-read. And so is TFiOS. I hope you get to them soon! As for Gone Girl, I first need to digest the movie, but I wish to read the book at some point as well. Lovely list!

    Thank you for stopping by my post earlier, and happy reading!

  18. I just finished rereading Little Women about a month ago -- I hosted a read-along for it on my book blog, The Edge of the Precipice. I really want to read The Beautiful and the Damned (I'm quite a fan of Fitzgerald -- in fact, I take my blog's name from a quote of his) I haven't read The Hunchback of Notre Dame yet either. One of these days!

  19. I've never had a desire to read Miss Peregrine either! The Perks of Being a Wallflower seems interesting to me but I've never seen it available anywhere. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I started The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but I never ended up finishing it. I just didn't find the story all that compelling! Which is a shame, since it is such a well-known and well-loved book.

  21. We both have Red Queen, Danica. But I've read and watched both TPOBAW and Gone Girl and they're two of those rare pieces of art that are amazing in both medium. DEFINTELY, DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. I've read watched TFIOS, too, actually. But I thought there was something missing in the film. ALTHOUGH, the OST was fantastic and so was every single cast.

  22. I've read Red Queen and The Fault in Our Stars. Red Queen was fun but not overly original in some areas. The Fault in Our Stars was a good book but I was miserable afterwards.
    I have Miss Peregrine on my shelf waiting to be read. I wanted to read Gone Girl but I just watched the movie instead and really liked it.
