T5T: Top 5 Books That Lived Up to The Hype

T5T: Top 5 Books That Lived Up to The Hype

Welcome back to another Top 5 Tuesday!

If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Tuesday, it is a group here on WordPress currently run by Shanah over at BionicBookWorm, that features a different book related topic each week.

This week’s topic is the top 5 books that didn’t live up to the hype, but I was struggling to come up with 5 so I’ve gone for the top 5 books that lived up to the hype instead (although this meant I had the opposite problem, only 5?!)

In an attempt to narrow down my list, I’ve decided to only focus on books that I’ve read within the last year.

 

  1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

 

32075671

 

  1. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

  1. The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven

 

 35817737

 

  1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

  1. The Power by Naomi Alderman

  1. Totally agree with The Song of Achilles! I was a little nervous going in to that one because of all the hype, but it definitely didn’t disappoint 🙂 Great list!
