Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a topic that can be applied to whatever genre of books you like to read.
This week the theme is the top ten books that have been hyped up that I have never read. Many of these books are ones that I wouldn’t mind reading, but some just have no interest for me!
The Fault in our Stars
I haven’t read this book, nor watched the movie. I have a hard time with books that don’t have the ‘happily ever after’. I’m sure it’s a great book, but it’s not on my list!
I have not read this series. I have read the Hunger Games and it was enough for me. I’m not huge into YA, so this isn’t top of my list. I haven’t seen the movie either as Shailene Woodley is not my favourite actress.
Even though I love historicals, I am actually not a fan of reading the ‘real deal’. I haven’t read Jane Eyre and I tried to watch the latest movie version and found it so depressing that not even Michael Fassbender could entice me to continue.
Pride and Prejudice
I know, I know!! One of my very favourite movies is the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice. I adore the early 1800s and will read almost anything set in this time. However, Jane Austen’s writing is preferable to be on the screen than the page.
The Thorn Birds
I remember my mother reading this book when I was a kid. I think there was a tv mini series as well. I have never read this book and likely won’t get to it!
Gone With The Wind
Frankly, Scarlet, I don’t give a damn to read this book. I tried as a teenager to get swept away in this book, but like others on the list, the screen was the preferred medium for me!
I know this series is very popular, but I haven’t got around to reading it yet. I say ‘yet’ because this is one hyped book that I would like to read.
I know this is considered one of the top historical romance novels of all time. I am *pretty* sure that I haven’t read it – or if I have I can’t remember it at all. One afternoon when my to be read list is smaller I will download this book and read it!
I haven’t read this book, but it’s on a zillion top 100 lists of great romance novels. This is another rainy day read for me!
Any book with that title is automatically going on my list. I would like to read this very hyped book!
