As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week features those super hyped books that I have not read. Sigh, there are many, there is not enough time, nor enough shelving space, or money *CRIES* Though tbh I don’t have plans to read most of these, hee.
1. The Fault In Our Stars has never particularly piqued my interest, not even when it became a blockbuster and paved the way for many other contemporary books to Hollywood. I haven’t even seen the movie. 2. Eleanor & Park, along with Rainbow Rowell’s many other titles are on my long to-do list in my journey to assimilate to contemporary fiction. 3. I’ll Give You The Sun sounds adorable, the trouble is picking which cover I want: the pretty US version or the pretty UK version? Bookworm choices are hard. 4. Me, Earl & The Dying Girl along with 5. If I Stay falls into the same category as TFIOS for me: lots of media hype, but I have zilch personal interest.
6. The Selection is apparently going to become a TV series soon (feels like they all are!) so I suppose I will read it at some point: but it looks like a weak version of The Hunger Games. Besides, if I wanted to watch The Bachelor I can just switch to Channel 10. 7. The Mortal Instrument series is so hard for me to get into, I have tried twice now and never made it past the 50% mark of City of Bones – perhaps third time’s the charm as another adaptation is coming out (plus a new set of pretty covers!). It seems like a sin to not have read 8. His Dark Materials trilogy, but I have grand plans to finally purchase and complete these books some time this year. Similarly 9. Percy Jackson and co. sounds right down my alley, what with Greek Myths and shennanigans, so I will have to read them all… this year as well, I hope! Finally 10. Divergent came out when I was super burnt out by dystopia, so I never got into it – then I heard of the silly idea of factions based on personality and my interest pretty much flatlined.
This was so fun, I would love to know what your list looks like!
