Top 5 Tuesday: Hyped Books I’m Not Interested In

Hey, Happy Tuesday! I’ve been neglecting my blog a little bit recently and my posts are quite a bit more sporadic. But hey ho, this blog is my hobby!

After seeing Kira do a Top 5 Tuesday, I thought I’d give it a go!

Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, but now it is hosted by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

Top 5 Hyped Books I’m Not Interested In

This weeks topic is 5 books that are hyped but I’m not interested in. Now, I want to make this clear – just because the book appears on this list doesn’t mean I wouldn’t enjoy it if I picked it up! There’s just so many books out there to read that I have to sift through things first. Sometimes this makes me anxious because I feel like I’m missing out on so many amazing reads but there’s only so many hours in the day. If you think I’ve made a mistake, definitely pitch the book to me in the comments!

A Court of Thorns and Roses

I know a lot of people love these books but I don’t read a lot of fantasy. Like many books I don’t gravitate towards, I’m sure I’d enjoy them if I bothered to pick them up, but there’s too many books!

The Fault In Our Stars

Or anything by John Green if I’m perfectly honest. I feel like a lot of people really enjoy this book and all the feels but I don’t like YA that much in general. Maybe if I’d have read it 10 years ago, it would be a different story!

Red, White and Royal Blue

Again, I’m not fussed on romance. I’ve heard really good things about this book and it’s certainly been hyped but I’m not straining at the bit to pick it up.

Hinch Yourself Happy

I really don’t like cleaning. Organising – yes. Cleaning – no. I want to be able to enjoy cleaning and be motivated to keep on top of the housework but my priorities are shifted. I think a lot of people got this for Christmas but it’s not a book I’d be picking up.

Crazy Rich Asians

Again, romance just isn’t my bag. I tried to listen to the audiobook as I know the book is really popular but it did not grab me at all. Never mind!

What hyped books haven’t grabbed your attention? I’d be interested to know!

  1. I’m glad I inspired you to take part! ACOTAR is one of my favourite book series! The characters truly feel so real and I have such an emotional attachment to the characters! If you like fantasy retellings, I think you should give it a go. Also I’m reading Red, White and Royal Blue at the moment – I don’t think I’m going to like it as much as everyone else seems to, but it is still an enjoyable read so far

  2. I feel the Same about Red White and Royal Blue… so much hype but it just doesn’t call out to me.
    I do love ACOTAR so much though… I am so emotionally invested in that series its unreal x
