#5OnMyTBR – Hype from the Past

Hullo everyone and welcome to another #5OnMyTBR post where I share books I want to read but I’m too lazy to actually do it.

Once again, if you don’t know #5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @LocalBeeHunter’sNook and you can learn more about it here. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.

This week’s prompt is Hype from the Past!

My take on this prompt will be books that had a great hype on the past, but it was dwindled down with time.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

I said this will be books which hype had dwindled down, but with the recent news that The Selection is getting a TV adaptation I think the hype might come back temporarily. But this is a series that had a great hype a few years ago when I was first introduced into the book community and I’ve had it on my TBR since 2016. I recently bought the first book on Kindle so hopefully I will read it during lockdown.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

Another book I added since 2016, The Wrath and the Dawn had a great hype when it was first released but it dwindled pretty fast and I don’t even remember people talking much about the sequel but that might have been me. I think I saw someone live tweet while reading it the other day and it reminded me of how much I wanted to read it back then.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was such a hit when it came out, everyone was talking about it! Even now, I see people talk great things about it when they read it but since it came out a few years ago now, the hype is just not the same. This is a book I’m excited about and I can’t wait to finally get a copy in my hands to read it.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Another series that I added back in 2016, I’m seeing that most hyped books are series haha. Three Dark Crowns had a great hype while it was being release but it quickly fade away once the last book was published. Also a very anticipated book for me when I first found it but I was never able to get a copy on it to catch up when the hype was there.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I started this book a few years ago if I’m not mistaken, and it was not the right time to read it because I couldn’t get into it. The Song of Achilles was talked about a lot when it first came out and I was looking forward to read it but after that first attempt I just didn’t feel it anymore and is not sitting on my Kindle waiting for me to get in the mood again.


And these are the books I’ve chosen for the Hype from the Past prompt of this week!

  1. I loved The Selection, really it is one of those books that you could just finish in a day (or at most a weekend). The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is also on my TBR! 🙂
