August 2015 Book Haul

Book HaulHey guys!

I’ve been trying to limit my book buying habits lately since I will be moving back home in a month and will have to bring a bunch of books back on the plane as it is. But who are we kidding? When it comes to books, I have no self control. None. Zero. Hence why I have almost 10 books on this haul.

Relax, sit back, and grab your tea because this might be a doozy!

Hyped Books I’ve Never Read | Top 10 Tuesdays

Top10TuesdayHey guys!

I’ve decided to join the Top 10 Tuesday Weekly fun on my blog because why the hell not? Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This weeks topic is the Top 10 Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. I had a teeny bit of trouble gathering ten books for this list because I am always reading the hyped up books when they come out. I just can’t help it. I mean what’s the point of all the hype if the book isn’t any good? So the books I put on this list are the hyped books I have yet to read, because lets face it, I’m going to read them sooner or later!

10) The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze RunnerI’ve seen the movie and I’ve been slacking on picking up this book. Maybe 2015 will be the year I do it!

9) I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the SunThis has been recommended to me from several different people. It has won awards. The plot sounds like a book I would love. All this awesomeness and I have yet to read it.

8) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork AngelI am slowly but surely getting through The Mortal Instruments series so I can finally start the prequel to it all. I’m only several years behind the hype.

7) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

FangirlNaturally after reading Eleanor and Park I wanted to immediately start Fangirl… but…but…yeah. I still haven’t read it.

6) The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

The Final EmpireBooktube exploded with this book and has literally hyped this book up so much that I want to go as far as to purchase the UK covers. Come on, just look at the beauty of them!

5) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

A Game of ThronesYes this book is huge and wordy. And yes I will eventually read it. I just have to grow some balls first.

4) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven BoysI am finally going to cave and read this book. I purchased it and it’s close up on the TBR list. Look out for it soon!

3) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and BoneSame goes for this glory! After seeing the hype for Six of Crows, a story held in the same world as this one, I will naturally have to read this one first!

2) Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red RisingThis freaking book has been taunting me on my TBR list for so goddamn long. I’ve already started it but have since put it down. Not because its not interesting or good, I’m just weird like that.

1) An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the AshesOk, this book. Do I even have to say anything? It was so good that it went from being a standalone book to a freaking series. It’s so hyped I don’t even know what to do with it! Duh, I will read it.

Well there you have it. The Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. Let me know what you guys think of my list and share with me what are some of your hyped books you have yet to read.

See ya next time,

Jesse Nicholas
