Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Books That Lived Up to the Hype

Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT is: Popular books that lived up to the hype. 
I can find myself straying away from hyped books because I get nervous that I'll read them and not like them. It can take me so long to pick up a hyped book, because I sometimes wait until the hype has died down. But with these books, I wish I wouldn't have waited because it would have been fun to join in all the book talk! 

Series that lived up to the hype
These series all were brilliant to me. I wish I had jumped on the train sooner but, at the same time, holding off made it so that I could binge read the whole series.

Series that I've read the first one, but not the rest.. yet
These series were hyped up so I read the first and loved it! But when it comes to reading the others, I'm nervous I won't love them as much as the first one. (Do you see any I should definitely continue on with? I know Crooked Kingdom is a given!)

There are so many hyped contemporaries and I get so nervous I won't like them because i don't read much contemporary. But! I end up liking them more than not. These I looooved!


  1. Finnikin! I see it all the time but yet never get around to it. I fail! Happy to see Simon on your list. Loved Lola too. My TTT

  2. I liked Grave Mercy a lot. I need to read the rest of those- and I did like the Taylor Jenkins Reid book I read.

  3. Nice! I loved Six of Crows as well! Seeing a lot of that one today, I chose another Bardugo book though! I too need to get caught up with The Diviners series as well! So many books so little time! Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I know how you feel about hype avoiding hype. I'm the same way, and like you, I enjoy binge reading entire series. I did that for The Lunar Chronicles. I'd really like to read Six of Crows, but haven't gotten to it yet. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. I cried a lot reading One True Loves, but it was so beautiful!
    These Broken Stars has been on my shelf forever, I really need to read it!

    Our TTT:

  6. Hype always scares me away from books. That’s why I don’t read many of them. I loved Simon, though. That one lived up to the hype for me.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. I don't mind reading popular books (maybe that's an unpopular opinion, I don't know). I haven't read any of the above yet, but I would like to read Six of Crows. As I still have 12 books on hold at the library and several books that I have bought that I need to read, it may be a while before I get to it.

  8. I had Six of Crows on my list this week too!
    My TTT:

  9. The Diviners series was amazing and I can't wait for the next book!
