Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

Posted July 7, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 65 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

Here I give the Top Ten Books I Have Never Read. I am so not sure what is deemed as “hyped”.  I am going with books I have heard a ton about, seen all over the blogs  and what not. Also, these are all books I would like to eventually read.


Harry Potter series | The Lunar Chronicles | All the Light We Cannot See |I’ll Give You the Sun| All the Bright Places | Emmy & Oliver | The Outlander series |The Martian | The Kite Runner | Red Rising

  1. I’ve only read two on your list! Harry Potter I plan on re-reading these soon! and I’ll give you the sun. I plan to do the audiobook version of cinder so we’ll see how that goes. I’m not too sure about Red Rising or Outlander but I do plan on reading the other books on your list.

    I hope when you do get around to Harry Potter you love it!

      I am doing the audio of Cinder too! I think I may also do Harry Potter as audio. I am really excited to get to them!

  2. Oh my! You have to read Harry Potter series, it’s my number one, all time favorite! I also love The Lunar Chronicles! Both of these series are so wonderful written and different. I hope you read them soon but mostly I hope you enjoy then! Happy Summer Reading! 🙂

      I am next on the list for the audio at the library!! I am super excited to get it!

  3. When it comes to hyped books, weeeeell, here’s for the most obvious one: TWILIGHT. SERIOUSLY. I don’t think I’m up for sparkly vampires yet. I don’t think I’ll EVER be ready, but I digress.

      Oh the sparkly vampires! Is there ever a time for them??? Cinder is almost up at the library so soon!!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      That is all I hear about the Cinder series – That it gets better which is so rare in a series. And Emmy & Oliver I am dying to get to.

    All the Bright Places and Emmy & Oliver should have made my list too! I want to read those. I enjoyed Cinder but haven’t gotten back to that series yet. And of course I have tons of love for Harry Potter. I have to say, I always love the graphics you create to display the book covers for your top ten. They always turn out beautifully!

      Thanks about the graphics! Harry Potter is one I think I need to read not only because I think I will love it but also because I just hate not being able to talk about it!!

      I do kind of feel lucky to experience Harry Potter for the first time! And yes so much great reading ahead!

  5. Well, I can recommend several of these! “Red Rising” and “The Martian” were phenomenal, and “Cinder” and “The Kite Runner” are both 4-star books. “Outlander” was super-good too, and I love the TV show. You should give the Harry Potter books a try! I will be a Potter fan for life; In fact, I’m listening to all the audiobooks right now and they’re wonderful. “All the Light We Cannot See” made my TTT list, and I currently have “I’ll Give You the Sun” checked out from the library.

  6. Great list! I need to read The Outlander series too. It is just so long and I have so many mixed things about it. I hate investing all the that time if it is not worth it. Guess I need to just give it a try! I am glad there is someone else that has not read The Kite Runner. I still need to read that one too!

      I agree about Outlander – I have also heard some mixed things and long books yikes. But I want to try too!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Sometimes series scare me because there are so many books to commit to but I am excited for both of those!

  7. I love seeing what people have put on these lists! There are several here that I will probably never read either. I have read Cinder and enjoyed it. It was not at all what I was expecting. Thankfully, I read the first book for review and got to it before the hype hit. Hype alone can be a deterrent for me. I have seen Cinder on several lists.

  8. I agree with your analysis of “hyped”, these all fit the bill for me! I have read Cinder (and liked it!) but haven’t read the rest of the series yet. All the Bright Places and I’ll Give You the Sun were both really good, but if you pick only one from this list, make it Emmy & Oliver! It is amazing! Also- I plan on reading Red Rising and The Martian at some point too- sooner than later 🙂 Great list!

      Cinder is getting started soon since it is almost up at the library. I know I NEED to read Emmy & Oliver. Everyone LOVES it – like no bad words have been spoken.

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Yeah I think it is amazing the staying power of Harry Potter – just proof I need to read it!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      So excited to get to all these books – love when hearing they are worth the hype! And YAY someone else who hasn’t read Harry Potter!
