MON. | Dec. 2 – #AMonthofFaves 10 Popular Books Worth the Hype (and/or Not Worth the Hype)
Looking back at the books I read this year, I tried to pick the books that I rated 4 or 5 stars and that I remember seeing lots of hype surrounding their release. I added the Goodreads stats too just to gauge their popularity as far as ratings and reviews. I did the same thing on Instagram (where possible) looking at how many times the book title was used as a hashtag. The results were very interesting! (Read my 2018 post on the same topic.)
