Worth the Hype? Top 10 Books that are Worth the Hype!

We have all been there...We hear the thunderous chatter of avid readers RAVING about a book. We simply can't handle being left out any longer so we trudge to the book store, in the winter, uphill both ways, to purchase said book with our very last few dollars that we were saving for food, but reading is more important, right?! We can't wait to get home, get into our coziest reading clothes and curl up on the couch and devour this book so we can finally join this elite group of readers...Then you've finished; to say you were underwhelmed is a understatement. You are flooded with complete disappointed and irritated as to why this book didn't speak to you like it did to the others. You just want to hide away and speak about this moment to no one. 

It's happened to all of us! We are human. Different strokes for different folks, right? Well, having said all of this, I thought I would compile a list of the books that I think were totally worth the hype. Books that I was hesitant to finally read because I was terrified they wouldn't live up to the high expectations already created, despite my best efforts to keep an open mind.

  2. Really thankful for posting the top ten books. For these days really getting bored in my home. So i was searching for some book worth for me. These are the books i like. But i have a dissertation presentation next month. I think the dissertation editing service will help me to prepare a perfect dissertation.

  3. Just read the Temple Wars Novel on Ganesha! The story is well told through a parallel protagonist Tarun who helps Ganesha retrieve his objects from the spirit world. It's a page-turner that will have you wanting more. You guys should check it out! Temple Wars
