top ten hyped books I haven't read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish, where each week there is a themed list, and you must come up with ten books to put on that themed list.

This week, the theme is "February 3: Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't/Want To Read From X Genre (for example I feel like I'm pretty well read in contemporary YA but there are some STAPLES I can't believe I haven't read. Or if you just want to books you WANT to read in a particular genre..not necessarily long overdue." This is hard for me because, unless I really just don't read a particular genre, I usually try to get to at least ten or so books a year in a certain one. So I don't know if there are 10 YA fantasy books that I've been dying to read etc etc... however. I do know there are quite a few books that have gotten lots of hype, whether it be from goodreads, booktube, blogs, friends or cashiers at Barnes and Noble, that I have not yet gotten to. So here they are.

Caroline's Top Ten Very Hyped Books That She Hasn't Read And Is Ashamed

1. A Song Of Ice And Fire Series – George R.R. Martin (2-5, I barely made it through the first one) 

2. The Study Series – Maria V Snyder 

3. Landline – Rainbow Rowell
