Top Ten Tuesday – Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype.

For this topic, I could easily put down 20 books! I think a lot of books that I have read and enjoyed are ones that are popular and/or other reviewers/bloggers have raved about.  Most of the time, I won’t read a book until I check Goodreads and see that some of my friends have enjoyed it. I trust my book friends opinions!

  1. I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed The Hunger Games. The majority of YA fiction I try to read is completely disappointing, but that one was surprisingly interesting. I can’t say the same for the sequels, but the first book was great!

  2. Gone Girl is a great choice! Definitely hyped, and I loved it. It’s now my standard for a good domestic thriller…and unfortunately it’s hard to beat. HP, of course 🙂

  3. The Great Alone is easily my favorite book of 2018, although it’s funny to see it on your list (for me), because I’d never read anything by this author previously and hadn’t heard any hype about the book! I requested it because of the setting, because I love Alaska, and ended up loving the story. Great list — of the ones I’ve read, I’ve loved them all!

      1. Well, now that I’ve read The Great Alone, I definitely want to read more by her! I have copies of The Nightingale and Night Road, looking forward to both.

  4. Great list. I agree with the ones I have read. I need to read The Dry, The Great Alone. I will have to get to them and see if I agree with you on those two.


  5. Agree about a bunch of these! I was amazingly unspoiled for Gone Girl and always wondered if I would have liked it as much if that wasn’t the case. But it lived up to the hype regardless 🙂
