Top ten Hyped Books I Never Read

1.  The Secret History

I could never (tried 3 times) get into this book.

2.  Outlander

I have it.  In paper back.  Which is too small for my old eyes to read!

3.  Moby Dick

No interest.

4.  Wuthering Heights

See #2.

5.  All the Light We Cannot See

I actually started it and put it down.  I busted wasn’t in the right frame of mind

6.  On The Road

See #3.

7.  The Catcher in the Rye.

I was supposed to read it in high school.  Hello, Cliff Notes.  Plus, I though Holden was an ass.

8.  The Alchemist

I have it.  I read 3 pages and put it down.

9. Me Before You  and  10.  East of Eden

I have them.  I bought them at my library’s book sale.  I have no excuses for not reading them

  1. I agree with Kimberly about Me Before You – a MUST read!!! I’m struggling with All The Light We Cannot See – for my 2nd attempt. Some of the others you’ve mentioned I’ve never even attempted.

  2. The way you feel about Secret History is how I feel about Outlander and Wuthering Heights. Unfortunately for me, I was forced to read Moby Dick in high school. Hours of my life I’ll never get back. All the Light and Me Before You are both on my threatens-to-topple-over-and-bury-me TBR list 🙂

  3. The only one I have read well…..listened to is ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE.

    I also have never read a Harry Potter book. I also have never read GONE GIRL or THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN.

  4. I am with you on the classics. There are a few I enjoy, but for the most part I can’t get through them. Outlander I really have no interest in either, but I’ve had different people tell me it is great!

  5. I read Moby Dick at the beginning of last year and ended up loving it. Yes it was long, and yes in some places a little dry, but something about it worked for me. And I feel like it deserves the hype that it receives.
