Since last September, I've been committed to reading, along with blogging about books. I've laughed, cried, and had a rocking time reading. In my journey of books there's been "eh" books, most worth reading, great, but I hear they don't live up to the bestsellers out there.
My hopes when I decided to pick up reading after about 1-2 years was to devour books and stay up all night because I just couldn't stop reading a book. For the most part, I've read a couple books that I rated 5 stars. But, they don't come often.
My true feeling towards this are "I'm reading, but I feel like I'm not reading". In other words, yes I'm reading books, but because there's a vast variety of good books I haven't read, I feel like I'm not reading the Best of the Best. (Like I'm missing out of better books.)
The following are without a doubt current bestsellers:
The Vampire Diaries Series
Harry Potter Series
The Hunger Games Series
Before I Fall, Hush, Hush, and Shiver
Beautiful Creatures, Fallen
I'm not going to let other people's judgment decide the books I read/buy. But, I will be influenced by it. Going back to my reading madness, I feel that I haven't yet read the best of the best in books. I haven't called so-so book my favorite. Making the conclusion that the books above have gained huge popularity and favoritism, I'm being driven to devour them.
Out of all of the books, above I'm sure a YA avid reader could point out their favorite. This isn't the case for me, I've yet to read any of them.
Conclusion: My best bet is that some of the above books have become people's favorites. I don't exactly want to read all the bestsellers out there, but I'm willing to try them.
I'm not saying the books above are "The Best of the Best", but some are for some people. The majority have earned 5 Star Ratings. Which, tempts me to try them.
With all that said, I'm going to wisely choose some of the above books. Yes, the books above could potentially be some of "The Best of the Best".
