What is a hyped book?
To me a hyped book is a book that publishers are pushing with loads of online promotion and calling it the next, Harry Potter or the next Hunger Games. The book may even be optioned for a movie and it isn't even released yet. Basically everyone is saying this book is a master piece. This is what a hyped book means to me, it may mean different things to others.
So do you read hyped books?
Over the years I have did this alot, I have read a "hype book" and ended up loving it and understanding the hype. One series that comes to mind is the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. However with other hype books I tried to read I just didn't get the appeal one series being The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Sometimes books I love that has beautiful writing, intriguing characters and addictive storylines aren't even hype books and I wonder how a publisher decides which book will be a "hype book".
So do you jump on the hype wagon? Do you like when books are compared to this and that? Have you read a hype book and wondered what the fuss has been about? Leave me a comment below!
