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?

Waiting on Wednesday: The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness


Patrick Ness is another author that belongs on by list of shame. I haven't read a single novel by him - hear me out - because I'm not a fan of crime and thriller novels unless I'm in a very special mood for it.
So therefore my crime TBR is pretty long and he's quite far behind. This novel rather sounds like something I would pick up in a store right away because it sound light, fun and easy.

Release Date: August 27th 2015

Synopsis:
"What if you’re not the one who’s so often the hero in YA fiction; who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?
What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend might just be the God of mountain lions."

What are You Waiting On?
