Popular Books I Haven't Read

Thursday, November 02, 2017, by taylorisreading


Hey everyone!

I made a post like this a while ago, that you can read here, in which I gradually realized what trash I am for not reading great books. About a year later and I still haven't read the vast majority of the books on that post, so go me! But I am not going to copy the books that I haven't read from the last post, these are going to be fresh because there is a LOT that I have yet to read.

So, let's get started...

ACOWARA Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

     This is the book I need - I don' think I can go much longer without it. This series blows me away with every book I read from it and I know this one will not be any different. I have avoided any spoilers, and I am amazed because I am always on my bookish Twitter. Also, I really just want to read more about Rhysand *heart eyes.*

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny HanToAllthe Boys

Two years ago this book was a part of my high school's book club, and I completely rejected it because I was in a whole "contemporary is trash, give me the fantasy" phase, even though freshman year I was the trash for contemporary. Everything about this book sounds adorable and fun and I really want to give the series a try because I hear it's just so comforting and warming.

ruin and risingRuin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

I haven't been too invested in the Grisha series like I know many people are; nonetheless, I need this book. I am so curious how this book is going to play out because the last one had me shook and I was so thrown around because I hadn't expected anything that was happening. I hope this installment is the same because that was a literal rollercoaster.

DaughterofSmokeand BoneDaughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I really don't know like anything about this book even though it shows up in almost every Booktube video. I first heard about it about two years ago through Sasha Alsberg and I have been interested since, but I still have no idea what it's about - I should just read the synopsis. But Booktube raves about this book so I feel like I just need to try it.

FallingKingdomsFalling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I almost picked up this book in BAM!, I even had it in my hand, but at the last minute, for some unknown reason, I put it down and picked up the Novice. I'm not complaining, the Novice was phenomenal with the whole magic-y school vibe, but I really want to read this. More and more people are talking about it and it's taunting me.

houseofhadesThe House of Hades by Rick Riordan

I own this book. I have no excuse. There's just no time in college, it's a true struggle.



mistbornThe Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

Again with this book, Booktubers rage for this book yet I don't really know what it's about. I have heard the synopsis like thirty times in the videos, but it has never stuck although I really want to read it.


Let me know the popular books you haven't read so I can despise myself a little less right now.

Thank you for reading!



  1. Dont you worry, you're not alone.
    There are many popular books i havent read myself lol don't know when will i finally get the courage to do so. For example: Mafi Tahereh the Shatter Me series, Red Queen series..and so many more

  2. Yeah, the Shatter Me series I haven't read either! The Red Queen series is really good, just the last book is so slow and Ive been reading it for like a year lol

  3. every time i tell myself i'm going to read the Red Queen next, i end up starting a whole different book lol

  4. There are so many popular books that I haven't read! The only one on this list that I have read is To All the Boys I've Loved before and I really liked it! Such a cute series!

  5. I don't blame you lol but Red Queen is totally worth it when you do get to it!

  6. That's what I've heard! That's why I'm really sad I haven't read it! I want the cutenesssss

  7. thanks!! i'll make sure to start reading it this time for real once i'm done with my current one

  8. I did read ACOWAR but ACOMAF is definitely still my favorite, haha. Can't wait for the sequel though! I need moooore.

    Pretty sure I'll never find the courage to do a post like this. There are way too many books on my TBR that are hyped or popular or were recommended to me.. It's good enough that I have a shelf on Goodreads with my owned TBR. People can get on my case there; why add my blog to it, haha. :'D

  9. Lol yeah, there are way more books than just these that have been crazy hyped and I haven't read, this is just the beginning😂. If you wanna do the post, do it! Don't be afraid😊 If anything, I've talked to a lot more people doing this kind of post.

  10. Haha, the day I'm in desperate need of any kind of blog post, I might do it. We'll see! :D

  11. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is amazing. I recommend it on Audible because the narrator does different voices for each and it really is an experience!

  12. That sounds like so much fun! It'd be like a real movie in your head lol .I don't have an Audible, but I've wanted to try it.

  13. I highly recommend it. And you can get your first book free with a 30-day trial and then suspend until you feel like starting a membership. And Kindle books upgrade to audio cheap :)

  14. I might do the trial and then cancel it for the free book lol

  15. I did that :) and then came back. And then cancelled. I have like 80+ books lol

  16. Oh my gosh lol all from cancelling it and restarting it, or just from buying them?

  17. From buying and book tours and Kindle audio upgrades.
