Top Ten Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype
Honestly, I don’t spend enough time on social media to find out what’s being hyped and what’s not until I finish the book and check out Goodreads for the info I need. I don’t read that many ARCs compared to other ARC reviewers and I’m not really aware of what’s being hyped. Add to that, this is my opinion of books that I loved and later found out a lot of very vocal reviewers did too.
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling et al
I did read this but I did not review it – a planned group review never happened and now I cba.
And sure, you could argue that the book/play did NOT live up to the hype but come on, the hype for this was HUGE, nothing could ever possibly have lived up to THAT… but I still enjoyed it.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
Shadow Study by Maria V Snyder
Divergent by Veronica Roth
No review, but I remember the hype. Hype for this hadn’t been seen since the later Harry Potter or Twilight novels.

Was this hyped? I feel like this was hyped.
