Hyped up books

Recently I see a lot of people really talking about certain books and then when I see the reviews there is such a spectrum of good and bad.

I have heard this about many books and I find that I don’t want to read those books as I don’t think the book will ever live up to the hype. 

Prime example is The Girl On The Train.   I just can’t bring myself to read this book because of all the media attention  it has received.   It is probably a wonderful book but to me the hype overtakes the books greatness.
