Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype
I usually avoid reading hyped books for a long time. I pick them up when all the hype has died down and try to approach it without expectations. It’s so easy to be let down by a book, not because it’s bad but because you expected more.
Here are the books that lived up to all the hype, in no particular order:
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
- Dear Martin by Nic Stone
- We were Liars by E. Lockhart
- Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertali
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
- They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
