Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Book Worm. The theme for today is “popular books I haven’t read”, so without further ado, let’s get into it!
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I have consistently seen this book on instagram and twitter for YEARS and I hear great things about it. It was quite popular, and still is. On top of that, there were more additions to the series recently, so of course, when you talk about popular books that I haven’t read, I think about this one. However, and like Sara J. Maas books, I don’t think I’m going to read it… We shall see what the future holds.
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Another series I have been seeing around for YEARS! To be fair, I own all books in The Mortal Instruments, and have read four of them. I am taking my sweet time, but one day, when I’m done, I will move on with The Infernal Devices. (Yes, I know, in terms of reading order that’s not the best, but by now I’m doing this in terms of the books I own!)
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuinston
This one is more recent but it’s probably on this list the one I’m the most excited about (which leads to the following question: what have I been waiting for? I don’t know). I have heard only good things and my hopes are high because come on, a queer romance with the fake dating trope? What else do I need to like a book? Hopefully I get around to reading that one soon!
Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis
I’ve been back and forth with this one, wondering whether or not I should read it. I did hear many great things about it, but there’s also this little voice in the back of my head that tells me maybe I have outgrown this kind of YA books (I did read TFIOS back in 2012 after all, and that was a long time ago). So I haven’t made up my mind yet, but it’s definitely popular, and on my radar.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
And finally this one! I heard only the best things about it, and I have read Daisy Jones & The Six which I loved, so I’m pretty sure that I will enjoy it as well. I also know that I have it on my kindle, so really, I don’t know what I am waiting for, but I do know that I will read it one day, and have a great time doing so.
When it comes to the books on my TBR, I feel like the more I talk about them, the less I’m likely to read them, so let’s just stop here I think that’s enough. Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!
