6 Popular YA Books That I'm Scared Of: A Look at my TBR




I've already confessed to you guys that I usually shy away from popular books. So, sometimes they really have a great premise and I'm still intrigued despite being a snobby closet book hipster. Here are some books that are quite popular and that I haven't read yet, or read recently.




ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES - Jennifer Niven
I heard so many good and equally as many bad things about this book. Some people praise it for being heart-breaking and beautiful, some people demonize it for glorifying suicide. I kinda want to read it but I'm scared I'll agree with the latter group. After disliking HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE I don't know if I want to take any chances.

LEGEND - Marie Lu
The premise is wonderful. I read a couple of pages in a book store and absolutely adored it, but so many people praise this book that I just keep putting it off.

SAINT ANYTHING - Sarah Dessen
I have read two other novels by Sarah Dessen before (arguably some of her very early works) and wasn't really a fan.




RED QUEEN - Victoria Aveyard
Honestly, the premise isn't even anything I'd usually go far. I avoid high fantasy at all costs, because it's hardly ever for me. So many people love this. Sadly, I didn't in the end.

MORE THAN THIS - Patrick Ness
The idea sounds intriguing, but this whole phenomenon of Patrick Ness is insanely intimidating. I don't know anyone who dislikes his books.

THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE - Neil Gaiman
I've never read a Neil Gaiman novel, believe it or not. Even though this one is the most intriguing to me because it's so short, I'm still kinda intimidated.

Have you read one of these?
