Different Kind Of Book Hypes I Have Experienced!!




WHY ? So when I read this book I was in the last year of my high school. I wasn’t book blogging by then so I had no idea that this book was is in the hype category. So recently when I was recommending this book to someone she responded saying that this was a hype so she wasn’t so sure about picking it up and I had to tell her that I fell in love with it when I had no idea about how famous it was and that there were many people reading it.

ABOUT THE BOOK -Fangirl is a YA Contemporary Romance fiction which follows Cath during her first year of college . Its divided into two parts. Now Cath has a twin Wren and they were inseparable in school but when they come to college Wren decides to try new things , party hard and be recognized for not just being a twin sister. Which leads to a rift between the two. It follows Cath finding a place for herself away from her dad and in the college with her classes and her writing with help of her Roommate and her boyfriend LEVI ( Cath feels Levi is her roommates boyfriend but he is not plus he is the main guy) . Along with this Cath is a superb writer and writes Fanfiction with millions of fans online . The fanfiction subplot was super interesting to read. All in all its a coming of age novel which dwells with finding your place in the world and the early steps into adulthood. This book will always have a special place in my heart . And LEVI , he is a dreamboat , my number one book boyfriend and he of the best fictional hero I have ever come across. And plus he smiles a lot( and I smile a lot) , so it was instant liking.




WHY ? When I started with Bookstagram this was one book I saw everyone talking about let them be a romance reader or not. And when I read the synopsis I felt uhm its not my type. Then I started reading these romance novels with fake dating and marriage of inconvenience romance trope and I realised I loved it and then I came back on Roomies , I was still super scared because I really don’t believe in following the hype. But then I read it and lets just say this book got my vote for best romance novel in the goodreads choice award. It was so worth the hype. The romance , the writing , the characters , the feels. Absolutely everything about it was so good.

ABOUT THE BOOK – The book follows Holland who lives in New York and works in her Uncles musical production. She is kind of adopted by her maternal uncle and his husband (she has her parents , its just its a weird word of mouth settlement between them which was super sweet) . She is super intelligent and an amazing writer with postgraduate in English from the best schools but the day she comes out of her college she stops writing . So through the book its her going through this confused haze of what is she meant to do. At the same time due to her Uncles influence she has an amazing ear for music which leads her to the main guy Calvin in the subway . At first she stops daily just to listen to him but it slowly develops into a crush. Suddenly her uncle needs a new singer , she ends up interacting with Calvin but they realise that he belongs to Ireland and his visa has expired so she hatches a plan of them marrying and him moving in with her . The book in the beginning is a little slow but so worth it. I can categories it as kinda slow burn with such a beautiful story and the feels . How they both try hiding their attraction and when they actually do confess the way Calvin showers his love , being a total dreamboat . There is a super amazing climax scene and the end. You would surely love it. The books also about Holland realising her self worth and fulfilling her own dreams.




WHY ? When I read this book I was already part of book twitter and everyone was taking about it . Bloggers , authors , the publishing house of this book and the cover was so cute . I had even read the last chapter (its just something I do ) and I was so pleased by it . But its just even after having such amazing characters after I finished it I was like but what was the plot , what did the author want to convey , what was just the whole point ?? Ughhhh.!!!!

ABOUT THE BOOK – The book revolves around a girl whose elder sister is getting married to the Crown Prince of SCOTLAND . Our main girl is not in very good terms with her so lets just say she is not happy to go there on a trip. It revolves around her trip , the cute guy who is the best friend to the princes younger brother . And its just the whole time the main girl keeps on getting scared of the Monarchy which I honestly felt was little stupid because honestly they have no powers left. And then the queen makes our protagonist do quite a few things for show. Its just by reading what I have written you can get a sense that somewhere the plot was missing. The only saving grace was that the main girl was super hilarious so I honestly did laugh a lot during reading this book.

    I loved Royals. I personally don’t need a ton of plot, but I need great characters and to be entertained. I experienced both reading Royals and left a happy camper.

    I love this post idea and never saw it done before! πŸ™‚ The one I read from your list is Fangirl – I wasn’t a blogger when it was hyped but I have just become more active on Goodreads, and found it there because of the hype. I was… disappointed haha. But I’m glad you liked it! πŸ™‚ I have one more hype-type: when you read a book, love it, but the hype is so strong it ruins your enjoyment. It happened to me with The Fault in Our Stars – I originally loved it, but the hype surrounding the movie release killed my love for it. Great post! πŸ™‚

    I really love the theme picked up this time. Hypes makes a person very skeptic while choosing a book. Twilight was one of those hyped books I read and which was totally worth the hype.

    I loved Roomies. I just finished reading Unhoneymooners, her upcoming books, and it’s even better. Such a good book! I’ll post my review on Monday. I haven’t been this excited about a book in a while.

    I love the idea behind this post! Never thought about splitting up hypes like that. I’ll admit, I read Sarah J. Maas because of the hype, but so far, I’m not disappointed. Haha.

    I have absolutely experienced the kind of hype where it seems like EVERYONE online is talking about the book, and only a few lucky bloggers get ARCs and they are bragging about them on twitter, and the publisher isn’t doing ARC on netgalley. . . and then the book is released, the reviews are all ho-hum, and no one ever mentions the book or the author again.

    and then there are the books that the same amount of crazy hype, and 100%, a million percent worth it! Most recently, I’m thinking Seth Dickinson’s Baru Cormorant books, and Martha Wells’ Murderbot books. they deserved every bit of the hype because they really were that good!

    Such a great post! I’ve experienced it so many times where I’ve read a book which everyone else seems to be raving about and just can’t make myself love it but in saying that, there’s also been hype which I’ve fully been on board for. One author which I always hype up is Stephen King and he never disappoints – at least so far haha. Thanks for sharing!

    I was exactly the same with Fangirl and Roomies. There’s been so many books where I’ve had hyped experiences but now I tend to just go with the flow with my books. I will try and read a book in a hyped stage but sometimes it doesn’t work for me. Great post.

    I have read Fangirl ages ago and embarrassingly, I forgot what it was all about. I think a reread is in order here! Also, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy Royals. I’m intending on reading it though so hopefully I like it. ❀

    Ohh I loved this post and I have so many books that fit into these categories! I feel like other types of hypes are “books you think are hyped because you follow the right people but nobody else outside your circle of friends knows about them” and “this was hyped so early on before it came out and I didn’t get an ARC but everyone is reading it and I’m not even excited about it anymore by the time it comes out” πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

    I feel like I am one of those people that is mostly unaware of hype unless it’s something that is suuuuuper present in my immediate Twitter circle haha But in general, I have experienced all three types of hype. Whenever I DO notice that something gets hyped a lot, I try to distance myself and read it a little later after the hype has died down, just to make sure I won’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t live up to my expectations. There’s nothing better than a book totally deserving the hype though!!!

    Royals does look hilarious, to be fair!! I always get a bit suspicious of hyped novels, though, because in my experience they rarely live up to all the buzz. Perhaps I’m just paranoid!! Love the post- great idea!

    Hey there Vicky . Thank you soooo much πŸŒŸπŸ’›πŸ’›.!! And I agree with you even I get suspicious of hyped books. So I try to read them 6 months or 1 year after their release. !! And Royals was definitely hilarious the reason I completed the book.πŸ˜…
