This week’s topic:
Top 5 hyped books I’m not interested in
(Sometimes the hype-train isn’t for everyone. What are some hyped books that you’ve seen and just aren’t interested in reading?)
I couldn’t be bothered to think up popular books I’m not interested in, so I just looked up one of those best-sellers lists and selected 5 books from it that I know I won’t read.
Normal People by Sally Rooney
From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner
I typically would include a few thoughts on each book, but I don’t know much about these. I’ve seen them around often, and I was interested in reading a few when they first came out — like Normal People, Vanishing Half, and Lost Apothecary because I like the cover. But I’ve yet to pick them up, so I doubt I ever will.
The other two — From Blood and Ash and Greenlights — I wasn’t interested in at all and know I’ll never read (although I’ve seen a few interesting reviews of Greenlights.)
