Hyped Books I Haven’t Read

Hey Bookworms!

There are so many overhyped books that I haven’t read, either because I haven’t had the chance to read them or because they just don’t interest me. Feel free to discuss in the comments whether I should or shouldn’t read it (spoiler free please!).



Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh | At one point I did want to read this book, but as time went on, I think I just lost interest. Since I saw it all over my Instagram feed at some point, it made me want to read it, but as I saw it less and less, the more I forgot about it.


Caraval – Stephanie Garber | Although I have heard mixed reviews about this book, I still want to read it. For sure the cover was the thing that really captivated me and made me want to read it and the description made me want to read it even more. With the release of the second book, I really want to get my hands on this book as soon as I am able to but I am currently on a small book buying ban.


Warcross – Marie Lu | I believe when this came out I was going through a phase where I wanted to read more dystopian books and as with Flame in the Mist, I sort of lost interest over time. However, if the opportunity presents itself, I may consider reading it. It’s one of those books where I’ll read it if I can and if not, then it won’t affect me.


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy – Jenny Han | I must confess, I am a hopeless romantic (most of the time because sometimes logic makes me question everything) and yet I have no real desire to read these books. I’m just not feeling it to be quite frank even though I’ve heard good things about them.


The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzie Lee | I’ve heard incredible things about this book and there is part of me that wants to read it, but there’s also a part of me that is sort of like “ehhh.” If the opportunity presents itself, I’ll read it, if not then oh well.


One of Us is Lying – Karen McMagnus | When I heard this had a Breakfast Club vibe, I felt like I had to read it. I love the Breakfast Club and I need to get my hands on this book as soon as possible. Every time I do find it, either I’m only able to afford the book I  came for or the book is damaged in some way. Eventually I will own it!


Geekerella – Ashley Poston | Cinderella may be one of my favorite princesses and it should be known by now that I love a good fairy-tale retelling. I’ve also heard good things about it and as with One of Us is Lying, I haven’t been able to get it because I’m either tight on money or the only copy in store was ruined.


Turtles All the Way Down – John Green | If I have to be really honest, I think John Green is way too overhyped for my liking because of it, I have no real interest in reading this book or any other book by John Green. I’ll admit I have tried to read The Fault in Our Stars (even though I didn’t want to because the girls in my high school ruined it for me by overhyping the film) but I never finished it because I found it a bit predictable. That’s just my opinion; if you disagree, you do you. I’m not here to tell you you’re wrong.


Are there any books on this list that you’ve read or want to read? Once again, feel free to discuss these books in the comments to try to convince me to read any of them.

Until next time!

  1. Most of these books are on my list. I really want to read most of them (luckily I read Geekarella quite a while ago before all the hype, so I really enjoyed it because I went in with NO expectations), I’m pretty good at going in to a hyped book not expecting it to be the be all and end all of books. I go in to be entertained, if it does its job then I win!
    I know I will never read “Turtles all the way Down” though… I added it to my TBR because everyone seemed to love it, I’ve decided that I just don’t care enough. Ha ha! We can’t read them ALL! Maybe one day it’ll come up as a cheap audiobook deal and I’ll change my mind. 😉
