Here are 5 of the most hyped YA books I have read over the years and how I felt about them, ranging from books I read 10 years ago to ones I read this year.
What is your favourite most hyped YA book that you have read?
What hyped YA books have you read that didn’t live up to the hype?
The Hunger Games – I started reading this series right when Mocking Jay came out and the first movie was about to come out, I ended up binge reading the trilogy as I enjoyed it so much. It’s something I’d like to re-read someday but as it stands now it is one of my favourite books.
Twilight – I read this back in 2009 as there was so much hype with the movies and I wanted to read the book before watching it. I remember enjoying it at he time and read up to half way through Breaking Dawn before giving up, it is a series I plan on re-reading someday.
Throne of Glass – This is a more recent pick up for me, after hearing so many love/hate reviews I wanted to give it a go and I ended up loving it. I’m still working my way through the series (3 books left) but I kind of don’t want it to end! I’m really excited for Maas’s adult release (Crescent City) next year.
Strange the Dreamer – Picked this one up purely because everyone seemed to love it and it sounded quite interesting. I buddy read this with a friend and we both seemed to have similar issues with it, mainly the insta-love scenes. Overall enjoyable but did not live up to the hype for me and I won’t be reading the sequel. (Minya is best girl though)
The Cruel Prince – This again was hyped up all around me and I decided to read it right before The Wicked King was released early this year, I ended up loving it and reading TWK when it came out, now the wait for Queen of Nothing!
