TTT: Books with Less Than 2000 Ratings on Goodreads

Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This Week's TTT Topic: Favorite Books with Less Than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads

I really like this bar for highlighting under appreciated books. I was rathe surprised by some of the books I love that have less than 2,000 ratings too.

I didn't choose books published in the last two years and decided to focus on older books that I feel need more love.

I have seen Stolen Magic dozens of times at different Half Price Books! Next time I am there I will actually pick it up :p

I haven't seen any of these before, but The Inquisitor's Apprentice sounds intriguing! :)

Check out my TTT and my current international giveaway.

Sorrow's Knot rings a bell but the rest I haven't heard of and they all look pretty great. This week''s topic is adding some serious weight to my TBR! The goodreads cut-off was a really fun way to pick books and I was also surprised by some of the books that had so few ratings!

We have one book and two authors in common this time... and I really should have put Peaceweaver on my list. I loved it lots! And will make my son listen to it, since we have the audio. Ditto (except for owning the audio) to Above World. Still need to read: ok, all the other ones. Don't know how I missed that Rosemary Sutcliff!

I just got The Inquisitor's Apprentice out of the library: looking forward to it!

Leepike Ridge is a Wilson book I haven't read yet: must correct that.

Face Like Glass is such an awesome book, I don't know why everyone doesn't love it to pieces.

Yes to A Face Like Glass and Sorrow's Knot! Both of those are so good and deserve to get more readers. I have a physical copy of Rebel back home in Manila! I think I have the third book in that series too. And I think I have a Kindle copy of The Inquisitor's Apprentice.

This is a great list, there are several I haven't heard of and will look into.

The whole trilogy is wonderful. Regency era magic!
Brandy said…
It is so much fun, but sadly the third book doesn't seem to be coming. (It can be read as a stand alone though. I just want more of the characters!)
Brandy said…
Erin Bow has had a lot of success with her new book, The Scorpion Rules, and I keep hoping that will bring more people to Sorrow's Knot.

Yes, this was a really good way to define underrated!
Brandy said…
I'm still SO MAD Random House canceled the book after Peaceweaver. Fortunately, it was only a companion and not a continuation.
Brandy said…
I hope you enjoy IA!

Leepike was his first published book. And it's incredibly good. The Odyssey meets Tom Sawyer.

Well, Face Like Glass STILL hasn't been published in the US which I think make a difference it how much it is rated.
Brandy said…
You should read them. ;)
Brandy said…
Always looking for other people who love MG & YA!!
Charlotte said…
They did????

Charlotte said…
I just checked for a third book myself. Sigh.

I do quite a few YA and am hoping to do at least 1 MG review per month. I have added you to my RSS.

Shorter Musings MG Fantasy

Here are some shorter musings on recent MG fantasy reads. Anya and the Dragon   by Sofiya Pasternack This book is fun. It is a book full of adventure, an obvious bad guy, some more complicated morally gray area characters, and a strong, brave heroine. It is also a book about friendships, community, and fighting for what is right. All things that usually work for me really well. While I enjoyed this, I did feel it was a little overlong and there were certain plot points at the end I didn't love. However, there were things I thought were done really well, such as Anya's Jewish faith and the idea that power needs to be challenged. In the end it was a middle of the road read for me, but it is one I will certainly be recommending to dragon and fantasy adventure lovers I know! R is for Rebel   by J. Anderson Coats This is tough because I usually really like Coats's books. I had such a hard time with this one though on so many levels. It's difficult to get into because t

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments. Two Naomis  was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel.  In this sequel to  Two Naomis , now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges. Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home. Naomi Marie i

The Reece Malcolm List

The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding surprised me. Enough people I trust enjoyed it so I knew I would like it, but wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. It is a really great book that is fun and has real heart and soul too. Synopsis: Things I know about Reece Malcolm: 1. She graduated from New York University. 2. She lives in or near Los Angeles. 3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week. 4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon. 5. She’s my mother. Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much. L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love. But the

Serafina and the Black Cloak

Serafina and the Black Cloak  by Robert Beatty is a thrilling tale of mystery and adventure set at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in 1899. Having lived in Asheville and visited the house several times, there was no way I was going to pass up a chance to read this. (Also it's MG fantasy, always a bonus for me.) Serafina lives in secret in the basement of the Vanderbilt's spacious vacation home. She has lived there most of her life. Her father worked on the house as it was being built and is the mechanic who runs the massive generator and keeps the electricity going. Serafina is the chief rat catcher, slipping through the halls of her massive home secretly and quietly. She is light on her feet, sees well in the dark, and is quick enough to catch the vermin and keep them out. Serafina knows she if different and strange. Her father insists she stay hidden. But all that changes when one night Serafina witnesses a horrible crime. A little girl, a guest in the house, is fleein
