 Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype.


I forever have bad luck with hyped books. I don’t usually love them and I don’t understand the hype surrounding a lot of them. I don’t know why I am like this, haha. I guess when I see a book getting so much hype, my expectations become WAY too high and I expect amazing and get none of those amazing feelings when I read them. There have been a few where the hype was real and I was here for it though!


Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

A little cheating for Falling Kingdoms, because not going to lie, the first book didn’t “WOW” me, but I am LIVING for the series and it’s one of my favorites of all-time now. With all the hype surrounding The Cruel Prince, I was sure I was going to hate it. I absolutely loved it so much and I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Honestly, I have no idea why I am including Red Queen on this list. I guess because I loved the hell out of Red Queen, but the rest of the series sucked. The sequel was bad and I didn’t even get past a few chapters of the third book before I had to DNF it. But I did LOVE the first book so much, so I guess the hype was real for that one. The rest of the series, not so much.
