Top Ten Most Hyped Books I've Never Read

Each week, The Broke and the Bookish hosts this book meme, and this week's prompt is "Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read."

A couple of these books, I've tried to read but just had to abandon. Some of these books, I absolutely LOVE the adaptations of them, but find them to be tedious reads. Others, still, were books I had actually bought the hype, but never read the book; once the hype died down, so did my interest in the books.
