This week’s topic:
Top 5 hyped books on my TBR
(How many hyped books are on your TBR?? What are your top 5 that you need to read first??)
I went a little overboard choosing books to feature for this topic. I have quite a number of hyped books on my TBR since I do get caught up in the excitement surrounding books and become interested in them whenever I read a review that sings them high praises for being awesomely great or totally rips them apart for being terribly horrible. Either way, I’ll probably add the book to my TBR out of curiosity. Well, here are 8 hyped books I’d like to read at some point.
PROJECT HAIL MARY BY ANDY WEIR
I read his Martian and really liked it so I placed this one on my TBR since the high praises for it got me interested. Plus, I keep seeing it mentioned that Project Hail Mary is similar to The Martian, which is okay for me.
CIRCE BY MADELINE MILLER
I’ve wanted to read this book since I first heard of it and still I procrastinate on doing so, smh. I’ll get to it eventually. I have a feeling that Miller may become one of my fav authors.
AMERICAN GODS BY NEIL GAIMAN
I actually attempted this last year but DNF’d it because I wasn’t feeling it. I’ll try again before I decide whether to unhaul the book.
A MAN CALLED OVE BY FREDRIK BACKMAN
I’m so curious about Backman’s work. I’ve yet to read a negative review of it, or, if I have, it was one review and I’ve long forgotten it because his work has only received rave reviews so far.
SIX OF CROWS BY LEIGH BARDUGO
That Shadow and Bone TV show on Netflix has me curious about this one again. I wanted to complete the Shadow and Bone books before starting on this one, but I’m really not interested in Alina’s story, so I may just hop straight to Six of Crows.
EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU BY CELESTE NG
I bought a copy of this shortly after reading and liking her second novel, Little Fires Everywhere. I wanted to see how great her first book is since EVERYONE loves it.
AMERICANAH BY CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE
This is another one that has been on my TBR for a long time yet I still procrastinate on reading it. It’s actually one of the 8 book I MUST read this year, none of which I’ve completed or even started.
THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE BY V.E. SCHWAB
And this one made my TBR after all the rave reviews it has and still is receiving. I’m waiting on the paperback edition to be published or to find an edition with a better cover design before I purchase it and add it to my physical TBR.
