Today's bookish topic - brought to us by the ladies of Broke and Bookish, is all about books that are hyped. Generally when I think of a "hyped" book, I think of something like the Marvel world because even if we don't all like the world, we all know of it at a minimum. But sometimes "hyped" can also be about a small, but loyal group of fans that do everything they can to help a book see its full potential. It's all in how you look at the bragging of a certain book. Why am I talking about this? Well, because the nine books I'm featuring are various forms of "hype." Or in my opinion they are. Some are known on a wider scale, other aren't. But that doesn't mean I'm not excited, anticipating and wanting to read some of them. Others I really don't plan to pick up now or at a later date. Below are the nine such "hyped" books.

Top Ten Hyped Books I've Never Read
1.) Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares
Okay, so I'm not 100% sure if this series was hyped (was it?), but from everything I know, it was kind of the "it" series to be reading when it was current. I adore the movies, so who knows! Maybe someday I'll give the books a chance. Have you read them?
2.) Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot
Another popular teen series I didn't read. The movies are some of my favorite (to this day) feel-good, girly movies and while I don't see myself going back to read the original books, I'm considering reading this follow up, Royal Wedding. Because who doesn't love a good love story?
3.) Rook by Sharon Cameron
I've seen this book everywhere. Or so it seems. Not that I mind since rumor has it, it's a loose re-telling of The Scarlet Pimpernel (for the YA crowd). What could be better?
4.) Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I'm really NOT sure why I added this one... but I did. I've not read it, and though I love Rosamund Pike (who starred in the film), I don't see myself picking it up either. From all that I've read about it, the book sounds a bit too creepy (physiologically) for my tastes.
5.) The Gifting by K.E. Ganshert
I am loving all of the attention I'm seeing this book get. K.E. (aka Katie Ganshert) always writes beautiful contemporaries, so I've no doubt her foray into YA is no different.
Ps; because of a silly mistake by moi, there might be a paperback giveaway for this one.
6.) Paper Towns by John Green
For the purpose of this post, I'm just assuming pretty much every book by John Green is hyped.
7.) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Pretty sure we ALL know how hyped this series is - and from what I've gathered, this is one of those universally "hyped" series. "Everyone" talks about it.
8.) Divergent by Veronica Roth
Never read the books. But the movies... *happy sigh* loved Divergent and anticipate the same for Insurgent.
9.) An Amber in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
This seems to be the "must have" book right now. Nearly everyone is buzzing about its epicness.
That's a wrap on another Top Ten Tuesday topic. Which of these have you read? Which should I make a priority? Leave your Top Ten Tuesday posts below. I'd love to visit.
