Top Ten Hyped Books I've Never Read
However there are a number of big named books that have had lots of publicity and lots of rave reviews that I have yet to read, and probably never will.
10. Twilight series of books.
Vampires are not my thing and I left teen romances behind when I was a teenager.
9. Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
I think it's fairly to safe to say that I will NEVER read these books, ever. I skimmed the first one purely for work purposes as our customers were asking if any of us had read them. I felt compelled to at least dip in so I could chat knowingly with our customers.
8. Life of Pi
I've tried to start this book several times, but fail to get past page two every time. I enjoyed the movie, but not so much that I wanted to plough my way through the book.
7. Eat, Pray, Love
6. Catch 22
I love this book for the first third or so. Then it just stops being funny. The joke gets tired. I get tired. I have now given up on this book three times.
5. The Shadow of the Wind
4. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
I may get to this one day, but it kind of feels like I missed the boat on it somehow.
3. Wuthering Heights
Hysterical, gothic and supposedly a romance? But Kate Bush does a killer song of the same name !!
2. Madame Bovary
1. Game of Thrones series.
This is one I am not ready to say 'never' to, but at the same time, I'm not sure when I will ever be ready to commit the time and energy into reading them all. Mr Books has though & he provides me with the extra details that the TV series is missing out and/or changing.
