Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish in which book bloggers list their top ten picks for whatever the current prompt is.
Oh my dear Hyped Book. So, okay. I’m fairly certain I don’t have to pull a Sheldon Cooper here—this is, uh, pretentious; I’ve only seen two or three episodes—but in case there are people who missed the hype (yes, I’ve a waffle sense of humor thank you very much*) I’m gonna try to fill you in with a quick analogy: for years, Lady Cupcake and Lady Macaron have been the center of attention in Hypegarden (*winks twice*), until Lady Cronut arrived and, suddenly, everyone wants to wait on her and invite her for sweets and refreshments. Overnight, Lady Cronut’s braid has become everyone’s braid. She, readers, is a hyped lady.
This week’s prompt could easily exceed a Top 20, that is why I narrowed mine down into books I consider reading eventually. They are arranged by date of publication and, for series, I listed the first title. Also, there’s one here I wish isn’t included but it is.
