This week’s challenge is to list my top 10 reads with less than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads. I was so surprised by some of the books I was able to include on this list!
Undying by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
What up Illuminae fans? We aren’t all just in it for Kristoff right!? Why have so few people read Undying!? I was so surprised by the rating count on this one, but it did just come out so it will definitely increase a ton. I personally enjoyed Undying more than its predecessor. I think it’s a great blend of modern and classic science fiction.
#Murdertrending by Gretchen McNiel
Silly, bloody, scary, conspiracy-y I loved it!
On the Merits of Unnaturalness by Samantha Shannon
So this one may be cheating, but, we need to have a talk Bone Season readers. If you seriously haven’t read this and you love Paige and the gang, you need to change that!!! It provides such a unique insight into Jaxon’s inner workings. Highly recommend.
Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer
More blood, more scares, and a lot more feelz. I can’t wait for the sequel!
The Romeo Catchers by Alys Arden
I am so in love with The Casquette Girls series by Alys Arden. She paints a lush and vivid view of New Orleans that is impossible not to fall in love with. I can’t wait to read the newest book, The Cities of Dead later this month.
Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne
One of my big buzzwords, when I look for new books to read, is “plague”. Rosemarked is the reason I gravitate toward plague stories. I absolutely fell in love with the dynamics at play in a pandemic situation thanks to Blackburne’s enchanting storytelling.
The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tuckolke
Yup more blood! xD The premise of this book was unlike anything I’ve read before.
Give the Dark my Love by Beth Revis
Oh look, another book about a plague! I have been shoving GtDML in reader’s faces since it came out, and I will not stop until a fair few more people have read it. There’s a beauty and darkness to this story that I have rarely seen elsewhere.
The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta
Girl turns enemies into zany household objects, don’t miss it!
Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan
Ok, this one is DEFINITELY cheating since Wicked Saints doesn’t come out until April 2nd, but I couldn’t pass up a chance to remind everyone how deliriously brilliant Wicked Saints is. I can’t wait to read it again.
Did any of these titles surprise you!? I don’t usually pay a lot of attention to the number of ratings on a book, and I definitely think some of my favorites deserve more reads. That’s what sharing them here is all about, so let me know if you add any of these to your reading list!
