Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Ten Underrated/Hidden Gem Books I’ve Read In The Past Year Or So.” There are some books that I really love and I’m always shocked to find out that not many fellow bloggers have read them. Here are ten books I’ve read in the last two years that have less than 2000 ratings on Goodreads and that I’d like to see more bloggers read. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
1. Iron Cast by Destiny Soria – How is it that not many bloggers have read this golden debut? Get on that now!
2. Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez – I don’t think I’ve come across a single blogger who has read this book. Why? It’s so good!
3. In the Time of Dragon Moon by Janet Lee Carey – Technically, this is part of a series, but each book can be read as a standalone.
4. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova – This debut wasn’t perfect, but it has a lot of promise and the world building was really good.
5. Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff – I’m really surprised that not many bloggers have read this one. It’s really unusual and I just loved it because of this fact.
6. The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth Throne – Considering how many ratings the first book got, I was surprised to see this sequel not get as much love. It’s too bad because this second book is even better than the first.
7. The Steep & Thorny Way by Cat Winters – All of Cat Winters’s books are amazing, so it astounds me that not many bloggers have picked up more of her books.
8. Silver Eve by Sandra Waugh – I’ve been waiting for news of a third book in this series, but I’m starting to doubt it will ever be published. It’s a shame because the first two books are really very good.
9. The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell – A beautifully written middle grade novel that deserves more readers.
10. Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall – I’m always partial to books featuring sisters and this one had its own brand of magic which I really liked.
