Ten Books I LOVED With Fewer Than 2000 Ratings On Goodreads

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s list is all about those hidden gems. The books we loved but that aren’t rated that highly on the wonderful website that is Goodreads. Here are mine!

These ratings are accurate for the time in which I scheduled this post!

1,466 Ratings

Bird

Oh, this is a beautiful and unique read. I wish more people would read it!

1,596 Ratings

The Wrong Boy

Another gem that I think should be read more widely. It’s a WWII book that I think has gone under the radar. It’s incredible.

223 Ratings

The Quietness

How can this book have not even 1000 ratings? It’s such a wonderful piece of YA historical fiction. I adored it.

427 Ratings

Jasmyn

You may know Alex’s name from Frozen Charlotte and The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club – both wonderful books but this fantasy adult fiction is still worth a read! 🙂

367 Ratings

Cross My Heart

Argh! Another wonderful WWII read that deserves to be read! This one broke my heart.

1,233 Ratings

A Kiss in the Dark

I really enjoyed this book from Cat Clarke. If you’re into deeper YA then I’d pick this one up!

130 Ratings

The Madness

This makes me sad. Less than 200 ratings for a wonderfully written book!

548 Ratings

Boy In The Tower

This book absolutely gripped me and I still think of it four years after reading it! 🙂

1685 Ratings

The Last Leaves Falling

This book is truly moving and has its space on my favourites!

289 Ratings

Indigo Donut

Another favourite of mine! I really enjoy Patrice Lawrence’s writing. Highly recommended!

  1. “A Kiss in the Dark” looks REALLY interesting… but also like it might be a little too deep for my YA preferences. Love the cover/colors though! Happy Top Ten Tuesday, Chrissi.

  2. I loved The Quietness too! I’m really surprised the Cat Clarke hasn’t got more ratings (also an excellent book) – ah I miss reading YA, I should really try and fit some in. Great post!

  3. i enjoyed THE LAST LEAVE FALLING, too. I especially liked it for the slice of Japanese life that it showed us. Thanks for visiting my blog.
