This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish.
Hype is one of the nastiest and best things out there in the blogging world. It can presure authors and disappoint readers. Nothing great for both sides of the scale. However, if the hype lives up, then benefit goes to both the author and readers. Today, I’m going to be sharing some badly hyped, greatly hyped and under hyped novels.
What can I say? These hyped up books really let me down when I read them. Twilight was absolutely disastrous. Incarnate was little bit better but still didn’t go too well. City of Fallen Angels was a disappointment as it became way too romance based.
Good hype is when books get hyped up so much that they’re pratically everywhere you go. These ones were and when I finished them, I fell in love. Percy Jackson has been my all time favourite series since I began reading.
I don’t think these books will ever leave my head until more people read these! Shadows and Wildlife are Aussie YA’s and they are just perfection. Dangerous Girls… well… I hated it which is why I loved it. (I never make any sense, I know *wails*)
So what about you guys, do you like hype or not?
