Today is the day! Today, we kick off the brand new meme hosted by Britt @ Geronimo Reads, Larkin @ wonderfilledreads.com and Jill @ Rant and Rave About Books about overly hyped books! I am really excited because it is the first time I take part in a group. If you want to join us, all you have to do is click here !
This week’s discussion post: Top 10 Hyped-Up Books
It turns out some hyped books did sneak into my TBR list!
1 The 5th Wave
Between the book and the movie, you can’t escape The 5th Wave. The only reason this book is on my TBR is because Liev Schreiber plays the Colonel Vosch in the movie adaptation and I have this rule about always reading the book first. Nope, not ashamed :p Don’t ask me about the story, I have no idea!
Everyone seems to have read it and I feel excluded!
I keep hearing this one is worth the ride, so I have decided to embark for Mars.
Hubby bought this one and started it … weeks ago. It keeps being mentioned as a reference, especially on Instagram, so I want to know what the fuss is about.
I love the cover. Like, really like it. I know we don’t judge a book by its cover but it’s too late, it’s on the wishlist. And we all do that anyway.
Another cover love. I am excited Passenger is this month’s group read. I got worried at some point because the small paperback version was released yesterday and Amazon was telling me there would not be a copy available before the end of the month, but then hubby bought the ebook version. I won’t get the beautiful cover on my bookshelf but I can at least read the story.
If you’ve been blogging for more than a day, you can’t have missed this one being reviewed and discussed all around the community. I barely know what the book is about, I only added it because it irked me not to understand what people were talking about!
This time, the title inspired me, not the cover. I fell this is a good candidate for my “out of comfort zone” reading experience.
Another Instagram reference, I have no idea what the story is about. It’s kind of exciting!
Are those books on your TBR? Have you read them? Did they live up to your expectations?
