Last month I made one of these posts talking about overhyped books so I thought to lighten the mood I would talk about books I think are worth the hype.

The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy #1) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) Gone Girl Eating Animals

01  The Three Doors Trilogy by Emily Rodda

This is one of my favourite trilogies of all time. These books are amazing, the characters are all unique and the plot is phenomenal. Seriously, Emily Rodda is a genius, she really knows how to create a fantasy world that will have you on the edge of your seat.

02 Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I have talked about this book sooo many times on my blog but that’s for good reason, this book is just that good. It’s cute, it’s emotional and it’s fun. Simon is a really great novel about oreo appreciation and acceptance.

03 The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I’ve yet to actually fully re-read this series but I have read the first three a couple of times. The Lunar Chronicles is a really fun science fiction series, with an amazing and diverse cast, it will have you crying and laughing and I cannot recommend it enough.

04 Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I’ve only ever read this once but let me tell you it was one of the single best reading experiences of my life. While reading Gone Girl I was constantly talking about it to whover would listen, there was a fair bit of yelling and oh boy was I excited when they announced the film. This is a crazy-ass book that will have you on the loor in a daze and that’s weeks after you’ve finished it – it’s got a a ridiculous amount of plot twists and the characters are horrible, read it – I dare you!

05 Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer

This is a book that surorisingly, I really didn’t know if I would enjoy. 1- it’s nonfiction 2- it’s about the meat industry in the US. I’d never really read too many non-fiction novels before, and why would I want to read this one? I’m already a vegetarian and I don’t live in the US. Either way, I am so glad I decided to pick this one up. This book taught me so much, not only did I learn about how gross the meat industry can be, but it also gave me the oppotunity to learn about myself – it was a surreal experience reading this book and I wouldn’t take it back for the world.


Do you guys agree with that these books are worthy of the hype? What books do you think are worthy of the hype?

    1. I read Gone Girl before I saw the movie but I think I was pretty spot on with the hype. It was awesome feeling to read it knowing that a bunch of other people were also reading it. I was definitely late to Cinder too!

  1. This is such a good positive post!! I have seen the opposite of this post so many times. I also love The Three Doors Trilogy! I also LOOOVE the Lunar Chronicles. I haven’t read Simon Vs yet but will soon and I know I will really enjoy it.

    1. Thank you so much! I know how you feel, I generally don’t like to write them and much prefer to recommend some good books. The Doors Trilogy is one of my favouritetriloies/series of all time and I absolutely love it! Simon Vs is a fantastic novel, great for a readathon or a day when you’re sick and just need a cute read!


  2. I’ve only read Simon and The Lunar Chronicles, but they’re definitely worth the hype! I remember the first time I read Cinder I didn’t love it that much, but I’m so glad I kept on reading 😀 (I’ve reread Cinder since and absolutely loved it, so I guess I was just in some sort of slump the first time around)
