5 POPULAR BOOKS
WORTH THE HYPE

#AMonthofFaves: 5 Popular Books Worth the Hype
Here are 5 books I read this year that got a lot of hype, well justified according to me.
I have tried to include different genres, including nonfiction and even a book written in another language.
Sadly, I have not yet reviewed the 2 audiobooks (I am so so late in my audiobook reviews!) included here:
Gone Girl and H is For Hawk.
But I have reviewed:
The Lake House
La septième fonction du langage
HAVE YOU READ THESE 5 BOOKS?
WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE?
Oh, my gosh…I totally broke my rule and saw The Martian, the movie, before reading the book; I kind of forgot about the book until the movie was released! I loved the film SO MUCH that I would still really like to read the book; such a fantastic story! I’ve heard so many good things about The Lake House; this is a great list!
thanks. Yes, The Martian is awesome, but I still have to watch the movie!!
As for Kate Morton, I think all her books are fabulous
I read The Martian three times last year! I can’t wait for his next book! Station Eleven was good, but not great – although it did get me thinking. Great list!!
wow, 3 times! I have hard time rereading the same book, as I have so many waiting for me. I have to say I DNFed Station Eleven. I tried the audio, maybe text would have worked better. I thought the flashbacks slowed too much the narration
I have not read any of these, but H is for Hawk is pretty close to the top of my audio wish list and Kate Morton is always a good read!
The author herself reads H is For Hawk, and it works – I know it does not work with all authors
The Martian! I did so love that book. The first 40 pages or so were hit or miss because of all the science talk, but once NASA’s “voice” kicked in, I was hooked.
I’m not too much into science, but I thought this was well done to set the scene, and it sounded so plausible
The only one I have read is THE LAKE HOUSE. LOVED it.
Thanks for sharing.
My A Month of Faves
yes, a good one!
Loved The Martian and agree it deserved the hype! And I’ve seen Lake House on a few lists today and have it on my TBR.
certainly a good one to have on your TBR! Enjoy!
The Martian was a book I really enjoyed last year. Great pick!
would you recommend me to watch the movie?
Gone Girl was brilliant, in fact anything by Gillian Flynn is worth it.
Ah, good to know, I was hesitating reading her other books
