Musing Mondays [2]

Musing Monday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week there is a new book related question asked and we get to respond! It is a great way to meet some new friends also. [:

This weeks musing asks.....

Are there any “raved reads” –books that everyone seems to be talking about– that you’re hoping to get read this year, yourself? What books are they, and why are you hoping to read them? Is it because you want to say you’ve read it? Or, would you have chosen to read it, even if you’d discovered it yourself, and no one was raving about it?

This is a great question! There are a ton, and I mean a ton, of raved reads that are on my to be read list this year. For example I can't wait to read A Million Suns, City Of Lost Souls, Hallowed, and seriously so many more! I don't want to read them just due to the fact that they are raved reads, but because I have read the books previous and fell in love with everything about them. There are also a few debut authors and books that are on my list this year that everyone is talking about, but really, it has nothing to do with all the raves and rants about it. When I am looking at books, I don't much notice the hype around it as much as I notice if I like the blurb. But, that is not to say I don't enjoy reading them and then being able to talk to everyone on the blogosphere  about them. That is the great thing about reading a popular book, most other people have read it and then you have just a ton of people to talk about it with. With all these blogs out there it is easy to get swayed into reading a book you wouldn't normally pick up and so far it has worked out great for me. I have read some books I never thought I would like and ended up falling head over heels. But it all comes down to one thing no matter what, how I really feel about the book as a whole after reading the blurb.

What about all of you out there? Are there any raved reads you plan on reading this year due to everyone ranting about it, or have you wanted to read them all along? Leave your own Musing Mondays link or just drop a comment below. I can't wait to hear from you all. [:


  1. Yep, Hallowed does look pretty cool :)

  2. Can't wait for the City of Lost Souls! And for many, many other books too. And the reason why I want to read the CoLS, is because I have all the other books in my bookshelf, and I'm a fan! :)

    Thanks for stopping by! :)
