Hello all you beautiful bookish people! Today I will be completing my second 'Top 10 Tuesday' list, started by The Broke and the Bookish. I think today's might be quite a short list, as these books are so famous they don't need much introduction!
So, here we go...bring on the hype!
10) Game of Thrones - waaay too big, and I couldn't not finish the series if I started!
9) Any Dickens! I just can't face it!
8) The Lord of the Flies - should I be ashamed of this?
7) Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses series
6) The Lemony Snicket 'Series of Unfortunate Events' - I just couldn't get into them when I was young!
5) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - I am desperate to see this on stage, but wouldn't dare without reading the book first!
4) Divergent series - I don't know what to think of these, but they're not high on my TBR list!
3) Twilight series...no, not ever.
2) The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit - one of the only books on this list that I am actually really excited to read...I probably have my boyfriend to thank for that! Also...would someone pretty pleaaase buy me these covers?! I love them so much!
1) The Fifty Shades of Grey series - never in all my years of working at Waterstones have I ever seen book hype as big as it was for the FSoG series! Absolute CRAZINESS!
I am sure there are people reading this who think that my preconceptions of some of these books are totally wrong (they usually are), so please get in touch! All I need is a bit of a push in the right direction :) What 'hyped' books do you really feel you should read?
