Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Lived Up To The Hype

Do join Top 5 Tuesday! Check out the list of topics for this month on Bionic Book Worm.

So, books that lived up to the hype… I had to think long and hard as I don’t tend to read a lot of hype books. The hyped books I own are still going unread at the moment. But… here we go…

The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)

The Lord of the Rings (J R R Tolkien)

I read both of these series after seeing the movies and really enjoyed them both.

The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)

This book was so magical and beautiful. One of my favourite reads last year. I kept seeing/hearing people talk about it and it sounded like it would be up my street in it was!

Nevernight (Jay Kristoff)

I finally caved when there was a buddy read for this one and the Kindle version was on sale on Amazon. I thought I might like it, but I did not expect to love it as much as I did. This was a great read.

The Shadow of the Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafรณn)

This book gave me so many feels. I read it twice now and although the first time I read it was more special, this is an incredible book.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone else’s! I will likely have quite a few on my shelves waiting to be read… ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Amazing list! I never thought to add The Night Circus. That was a book that was everywhere in the book community (still is!) and I thought there was no way that it could be that good – IT WAS! It was the most beautifully atmospheric thing I’ve ever read!
    Thanks so much for participating – added you to the list ๐Ÿ™‚
