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.

You might like my list as well, since it focuses on MG & YA fantasy - My TTT (guest hosted by lilybloombooks)

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????
there was going to be another book and now not? DARN IT.
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.

TTT: Most Recent Additions to My TBR List

Favorite Kissing Scenes

When thinking of a favorite things post I could do for February I decided it would have to be kissing. I've already done couples and I was feeling in the mood to do something fluffy and Valentine's related. So kisses it is. I read more MG than YA, and the YA I read tends to not focus on romance so this was actually harder than I expected it to be though a few jumped into my head right away. (And one of my choices does actually come from a MG book. One is adult. Gasp!) The actual scene from the book is quoted followed by my thoughts. The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and a groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead against the hollow of the queen's shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day . - The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner Turner doesn't write 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


Shadowshaper  by Daniel José Older is everywhere. Best of lists. Award buzz. Blogs everywhere. It's one of those books everyone is reading and talking about. I had it on my TBR but decided I definitely needed to read it before the year was out just so I could weigh in on one of the most talked about books of 2015 if asked. It is deserving of every good thing said about it. Every. One. Sierra was looking forward to a relaxing summer break. Her plans involved hanging out with her friends and painting. They did not involve being chased by zombie like creatures and threatened by a magical power connected to her family's heritage she has never heard of. When murals begin fading all over her Brooklyn neighborhood, Sierra is perplexed. When her grandfather, who had a stroke, begins to apologize and starts repeating strange phases and insisting Sierra get the help of a boy she barely knows to help her finish her mural, Sierra is concerned but mostly about her grandfather. Then at a
