I’m only doing a top 5 again, AND I’m a day late again, but Monday was the 4th of July, so it feels like a Tuesday today, so I’m going with it…
Today is Yesterday was Top Ten Tuesday – A weekly bookish list created by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is:
Ten Five Books that Have Under 2000 Ratings on Goodreads
Marvelous by Travis Thrasher is book 1 in such a clever, mystery series! It is mysterious, fast-paced, and just overall a really good read. I’ve read the first two books, and I cannot wait to read the last two books and see how this series finishes…I just hope it doesn’t break my heart!
The Amanda Project
Originally published as Invisible I, The Amanda Project is book 1 in a 4 book mystery series. It’s been a couple years since I read this series, but I remember devouring each book as it was released. What made this series interesting also, was that it tried to connect and interact with the readers, and people could write in short story segments that might be featured in the books. This one was a lot of fun, and even though it was published by HarperTeen, this series had very little publicity, which is a shame!
On Pointe by Lorie Ann Grover was one of the best books that I read in 2015. It’s a little bit of an older book – it was released in 2004 – but I just discovered it last year and fell completely in love. It’s written in free verse, and the story is so beautiful, heartbreaking, and hopeful. I have no idea how this book only has 442 ratings on Goodreads!
Self-published by Alexandra Lanc, Clara Claus is such a fun, Christmas book! This story just put me in such the Christmas-y spirit. While I read it, I could definitely see it as one of those fun, Hallmark movies (like Northpole starring Bailee Madison).
Another underrated mystery, Unlovely by Celeste Conway was very intriguing. This book does have mixed reviews, but I, personally, enjoyed it. It sort of had this almost…gothic-y feel. It takes place over the summer, but in my mind, when I read this book, it was always rainy and cloudy there (I read this one last year, so I can’t remember if that was the actual setting or not, but that’s how I remember feeling). It was very mysterious, and one of those books where you don’t know what’s going to happen until the end!
Well, my Top Ten Tuesday somehow turned into a Top Five Wednesday, but I hope you enjoyed nevertheless! See ya next time. 🙂
