Popular YA Books I Haven’t Read | Part 1/?

pop.books_Hello friends! Welcome to a new little blog-post series where I will briefly talk about 5 popular books that I haven’t read.

Some of these posts in the future will have books that I’ve yet to read, and some will list books that I don’t intend to read.

Here are the 5 books that inspired the first part of my Popular Books I Haven’t Read series.

An Ember in the Ashes (#1) by Sabaa Tahir

Here’s the dealio with this one, I started reading it, and then I put in back on my shelf and quite literally forgot about it. I haven’t picked it up since. I really want to finish the story, but my mind keeps on telling me “No! There are too many points of view in the book to fully enjoy it!” And my heart goes “You may have a point, but it is a book, and we have it on our shelves. It is our duty to read it!” And here I am, saying that I haven’t finished reading it, yet I keep on forgetting that I even own my darn copy.

I started to read An Ember in the Ashes, I think I got about…75/100 pages in. And then I decided to go on ahead and mark the pages where the points of view change. I marked about half of the book before I decided was enough was enough. I put An Ember in the Ashes back on the shelf and haven

Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

I know, I know… Dumplin’ has been out for quite a while and I still haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Dumplin’ is even out as a movie (or is it a small series) on Netflix. I’m going to try and read Dumplin’ maybe this year, because I want to see what all the hubbub has been about. Though I do know that Dumplin’ is about fat positivity.

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Even though I have The Sun Is Also a Star, I haven’t gotten around to reading the book. I really want to, though! I’ll have to put in on one of my monthly TBR’s one of these months so I can finally get around to reading it. — I truly don’t know what to expect in The Sun Is Also a Star, so I’m kind of excited.

Children of Blood and Bone (#1) by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone is a book that I’ve wanted to read ever since the book exploded on social media. Everyone says great things about the story and what happens and especially the representation, so I’m quite looking forward to this one.

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom is the sequel to Six of Crows and I’ve got to say that….I’m not ready for this duology to end. That’s the only reason why I haven’t started reading Crooked Kingdom yet. A side note, I read some pretty major spoilers and I don’t want to read the anguish that the characters go through, so I’m holding off on reading CK for as long as possible.

    I got too wrapped up in the hype to properly enjoy Children of Blood and Bone so I put it down and haven’t picked it back up again. I do want to finish reading it as I did like it but I couldn’t fully immerse myself in it because everyone around me was talking about nothing but how great this book was.

    If I hadn’t been fortunate enough to read an ARC of Children of Blood and Bone before the hype explosion took off, I don’t know if I would have read the book to be honest. I think hype and emphatic recommendations are fabulous, but for me when everyone is screaming about something, I tend to build it up in my head and it is so hard for those expectations to be met. Which honestly is a me issue, but why I avoid hyped books until I tell my brain to chill. LOL

    This is a nice list though and I hope you get to these books AND love them soon!

      Honestly, I’m the same way. Like, if a book is hyped up — or even if i hype it up in my head– I end up reluctant to read said book(s) until my brain is like “alright. we’ve chilled out now. can we try and read such-and-such now?” lol

      Thank you! I hope I get around to reading them sometime this year 🙂
