Today’s post is all about 5 Books that Were TOTALLY worth The Hype!! Some time ago, I posted a blog post about The “Hype” of Books- Does It Make You Nervous? and I’m really glad this is out post today! Great prompt Tanya @ Girlxoxo. Looking for the linkup? Head right over to Estella’s Revenge!
I like bestseller books. I do. No shame at all. And I can get pretty hyped up about books- especially when I have enjoyed a previous book by the author. But sometimes, it’s the cover that just sets my expectations to HYPER level and the book just gets so hyped in my mind. So…here goes with my list!
1. A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams
THIS. I LOVED this book.
2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Liane is still riding a pretty big high from 2013’s THE HUSBAND’S SECRET (which I enjoyed- but her rambling tale of Berlin Wall- although I appreciated how she used it as a metaphor was making me really reconsider my excitement level over the book. So, when BIG LITTLE LIES came out- I wasn’t sure what to expect- but THS, BLL blew you outta the water! BLL was the perfect combo of soapy/mystery for me- and I devoured it.
3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I know. I know. People hate the ending. But, I loved it. I loved the whole book! And see- here’s the thing you have to understand. Nick could never win- it had to be Amy.
4. In Your Dreams by Kristan Higgins
This book was making many rounds of early bookish things- and all the hype was deserved.
5. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
Drawing comparisons to GONE GIRL- dark and twisty and totally worth a read! Brings up questions such as “How well do you know your teenager?” and “Can you truly keep a secret?”
These are my 5 books that TOTALLY deserve the hype!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
