Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week – I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. Some of the books mentioned here are ones I own but am not sure I really want to read anymore while others are ones I don’t own but are hesitant to get due to the hype surrounding them.
Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
This is a book (and the whole trilogy) that’s hyped that I’m worried I’ll be let down. Also I have a bit of commitment-issue with books that are trilogies/series so that puts me off a bit as well.
The Bourne Identity – Robert Ludlum
I’ve watched and loved the films so I’m unsure about how well I’ll get into the books.
The Magicians Guild – Trudi Canavan
This has been on my bookshelves for years, and I mean definitely over five years, so I can’t even remember what it’s about so Ii’m really not sure if it will still be my sort of thing.
Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
This is another one where I’m a bit of a commitment-phobe to series (especially as this series is still being written) and there’s so much hype surrounding as well which always makes me a bit nervous.
The Poisoned Island – Lloyd Shepherd
I bought this less than six months ago and I’m already unsure about it. It’s historical fiction which I haven’t read much of and I’m pretty sure the main reason I bought it was because I liked the cover.
City of Glass – Cassandra Clare
I just don’t really have much interest in continuing the series. I read the first two books about a year ago but I’m really unsure if I want to continue the story since I didn’t love it and a lot of the characters really annoyed me.
Hood – Stephen R. Lawhead
I tried to read this years and years ago but couldn’t get into it so I want to give it another try but at the same time I’m hesitant to do so.
Eon – Alison Goodman
This sounds like an amazing book and the sort of thing I’d love but the size of it is what’s putting me off. I may end up getting it on my kindle since that way I can’t really see how much I’ve got to read.
Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
Everyone loves Rainbow Rowell but I’ve yet to read any of her books. I’m most unsure about Fangirl because of the hype surrounding it and also because I was (and in some way still am) involved with fandom and I’m worried about how a fangirl will be portrayed as “screaming fangirls writing fanficiton” is considered such a negative thing.
Feel free to try and convince me to pick any of these books up – though it probably won’t be till the end of September at the earliest anyway due to the dissertation…
