Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I’ve seen several friendly bloggers take part and it looked like so much fun that I decided to join in! This week’s list is Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. Below is my list.
1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I’m not sure why, but I haven’t been able to talk myself into it. I’ve checked it out from the library a couple of different times. I even checked out the movie version from the library and never watched it.
2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
I want to read this book. Really, I do. Both my sister, mother and several friends have told me it’s great. It’s another one I’ve checked out a couple of times from the library but then ran out of time to read it before I had to return in. I will read it — some time.
3. The Nightengale by Kristin Hannah
This is another one I do want to read. I love Kristin Hannah’s books. I just haven’t been in the right mood for this one, I guess. Friends have told me it’s really good but emotional.
4. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I know it’s going to be good. I’ve enjoyed all the other books I’ve read by Ms. Oliver. I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
5. Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Okay, I feel super guilty about this one. My mom so lovingly gave me a paperback copy for my birthday a couple years ago. I haven’t read it yet. I want to, but the first time I opened the cover I noticed how small the print it. I don’t know why that made me put it down, but it did. I promise I’m going to read it.
6. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Several people have told me I wouId love this book. It just doesn’t pop in my mind when I’m thinking of what to read next.
7. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I know, I know. It’s a travesty. Everyone I know that’s read it loves it. At this point, I’m a little intimidated by the length of the series. I would want to read it all at once and it would take forever. I’m just not up to the commitment at this point. I will read it at some point.
8. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
My college roommate read it years ago and raved about it. I bought it on my Kindle a few years ago. It’s sitting there waiting.
9. Room by Emma Donoghue
I don’t know. Since I’ve had a child, there are some books I’m just not sure if I can read. This is one of those. I know it’s good, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to read it until my child is grown.
10. The Giver by Lois Lowery
I’m not sure why I haven’t read this one yet. It sounds good and I was planning on reading it before the movie came out. I guess I just never got to it.
