5 On My TBR: 5 Books Hyped in the Past

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. Since my TBR can always use more focus, this meme is a great way to get organized. Each week has a theme and this week is: 5 Books Hyped in the Past. Thank goodness I remembered this meme because, holy moly, everyday here in quarantine looks like the one before it! Dear brain, today is Monday. MONDAY!!!

(The hyperlinks will take you to Goodreads!)


#1 Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

I had a physical copy of this book and lent it to a friend who needed it for a required reading assignment. I have just realized that when I moved to Chicago this summer I didn’t remember to get it back. *Gasp*


#2 Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Couldthurst

This gorgeous cover was irresistible to me and so, of course, I own this book. Why haven’t I read it yet?? Who knows! I mean, the second book is already out and I should just crack into it already. I’m ridiculous.


#3 Less by Andrew Sean Greer

This book was massively hyped and I had numerous friends that picked up a copy and recommended it to me. I have, embarrassingly, borrowed it from the library at least twice and returned it unopened. That is a lot of effort to just not read this book. Maybe I should just admit that I don’t want to read it?


#4 The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Yet another book I own that I haven’t read yet. This book was wildly hyped to me and I saw it everywhere so I picked it up and promptly shelved it. Seriously??


#5 Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Do I own a copy? Yes! Alright! Perhaps this is why I haven’t really felt lonely during this quarantine…I have four bookshelves of unread gorgeous books to keep me company. I regret nothing!


Tell me, please!

Which of these hyped books should I read first?
