Why I don’t usually buy hyped up books.

Okay so let me get one thing straight before I start with this blog post. I have literally nothing against hyped books and never will. I am sure thst many books are hyped up for a reason. These are just my thoughts and reasons behind everything. So let’s get started.

As the title of this blog post suggests I usually don’t buy hyped up books for one, or more, of the following reasons.

  1. I don’t want to buy it to find that I don’t like it as much as everyone else does. A prime example of this was The Hunger Games trilogy. I literally picked this up because everyone was saying just how amazing it was and the fact that it was being made into a film only made it so much better. Yet when I read the books I was bitterly disappointed and didn’t think that it was all that it was hyped up to be. The Hunger Games was okay, but I wasn’t its biggest fan. Catching Fire had it’s good ideas, but let’s face it the only good part of it was Finnick Odair. Mocking Jay, in my opinion,was just a total joke and it seemed as though Suzanne Collins got bored and quickly tied up what she thought were loose ends and then forgot her characters and so she made up a few bits of rubbish and put her pen down. It may just be how I feel but the series ending was a real let down.
  2. I generally find that because books are so hyped and you build up this whole magic of it in your head thst when it isn’t a wonderful page turner you are disappointed because you were expecting so much more.

Now that is not to say I don’t read them, but I tend to either pick them up in a charity shop or check them out of my local library, that way if they don’t live up to my expectations I haven’t spent a fortune on them.

I have enjoyed quite a few hyped books but as a general rule I stray away from them and pick my own books and read what I want to read not always what everyone else was reading.

This was a bit whiney I realise that but the next few posts won’t be. I promise there will be book hauls and a few tags but until next time. Goodbye
