Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Didn’t Live up to the Hype


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Books That You’d Mash Together, but I couldn’t think of any. I like to keep my bookish worlds separate and I can’t imagine combining any of them. So instead I did the opposite of last week’s post, which was Popular Books That Lived up to the Hype. This week I made a list of Popular Books That Didn’t Live up to the Hype. This doesn’t mean that the books aren’t good. I was just disappointed in them, but lots of other people love these books. Here’s my list:

1. The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn



2. Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi



3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas



4. Wicked by Gregory Maguire



5. Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh



6. Dead Girls Can’t Lie by Carys Jones



7. Friend Request by Laura Marshall



8. Two Nights by Kathy Reichs



9. White Bodies by Jane Robins



10. Demi-Gods by Eliza Robertson
