5 In Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: 5 Books That I Hope Live Up to the Hype & 5 Books That Did

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by the inimitable Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl) is a fun prompt! It’s especially fun because I only have, like, 10 minutes to write this week’s entry and it should be a fairly easy one! This week, we are focusing on 5 books that you think lived up to the hype, and 5 books you hope will when they release!

These are my top 5 books that, in my opinion, lived up to the hype surrounding them, either as preorders or just in general:

  • They Both Die at the End
  • The Last Time I Lied
  • Illuminae
  • Legendary
  • Scythe


These are my 5 books that I either haven’t gotten my hands on yet or am anxiously awaiting a preorder for, and I hope they don’t suck.

  • The Darkest Legacy
  • Spinning Silver
  • The Wicked King
  • A Spark of Light
  • Escaping from Houdini

What about you? Are any of these on either of your lists? Let me know, I am always looking for new TBR pile fodder!

    I honestly loved Caraval and I got an e-arc of Legendary, but it didn’t grip me and I haven’t carried on reading it yet ?

    I agree with you on Illuminae, the last time I lied, and they both die at the end, because those are the only ones I’ve read so far lol

    I love Scythe and Illuminae. I hope the other books meet your expectations.

    Don’t know about others, but Jodi Picoult may not be that much exciting now..
