This week’s theme is Popular Books that have Lived up to the Hype. Now I am not a person who gets sucked into book hype because when I first started blogging that’s what I did. I fell through the rabbit hole and I was stuck, when I started blogging I was very into reading YA but after a year I had noticed that I found some of the plot lines to be cliche, predictable and even similar in other books so I gave up.
But these ones are books that I have seen on Booktube and some because I enjoy the author’s work.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
This book is fantastically written, I was in love with Rothfuss’s writing and his way of telling a story was so captivating. I am looking forward to the Tv series when it comes out. It will definitely be a good show to fill the void when Game of Thrones ends.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I wanted to get into S+S first because I felt the book would ease me into Austen’s work and I was surprised at how enjoyable this book was.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Ahh, I can’t believe that the final book of the series is looming, the series itself has expanded so much since the first. Looking back to the first book, it reminded me of Reign the TV show following Queen Mary of Scots but to see such a change in the series make me sad that it’s about to end.
To All The Boys That I Loved Before by Jenny Han
I had read a few of Jenny Han’s other work before, so when I heard about this book I was excited. Of course, there is now a movie which I am very happy to see even though I have stopped continuing on with the trilogy.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
This book has been EVERYWHERE. I am trying slowly to get into poetry and this book really got me into it. It’s really good.
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simmons
I think I saw this book at least once or twice on Booktube before I got it. There is a booktuber who has a collection of every single published edition of this book and she is also an amazing artist. If you want a book that tackles love in a war, then you should really go for this book. But also grab the tissues because you will be needing a lot of them.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I read this book because of the TV series, the show is beautiful and very enchanting. So I picked up the book because the premise was interesting and I wanted to know how exactly it ends.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
I think I have mentioned this book one too many times but it is always a favourite for me. I mean when I first heard about it I didn’t want to give the book a chance because I didn’t want to fall into another series when I have a lot of other books that are series.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Again always mentioning this book. Laini Taylor is an amazing writer, I loved the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson
This man needs no reason for me, he introduced me to crime novels. I had seen the book soo many times that I decided that I had no other choice but to see what this book was about. And I loved it. Even though Lagercantz has continued on after the third book. I still consider the first three books as the Millenium trilogy.
Hope you are having a lovely day
