Books I LOVED with fewer than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads – Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is run by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl.

This weeks top ten Tuesday is all about books that I loved, that have received less that 2,000 ratings on Goodreads. This was a hard post, and I couldn’t manage to find 10, because apparently I read more popular books! I have to say though that I’m slightly shocked at some of the titles on this list, I really enjoyed these books and would have expected them to reach a wider audience. Have you read any of the books below? Or are there any books you’ve read that haven’t had the recognition they deserve? Let me know in the comments.

The Binding by Bridget Collins

This was one of my top reads of 2018, and I’ve seen it advertised all over social media, so I was very shocked to see it on this list. Its a beautiful story and the writing is sublime, if you haven’t read it you should.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This is another shocker for me. I figured a beauty and the beast YA retelling, would have received way more ratings on goodreads. Add to that that this is the best retelling I’ve read, and this one definitely deserves more recognition.

The Stars Now Unclaimed by Drew Williams

This is one of the first ARC’s I was approved for on Netgalley, and I requested it more to get my review % up than anything else. I was shockingly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It started off a tad slow to start off with, but the characters and overall plot make up for it.

The Last Remnant by Pam Brondos

This is a series I hear very little about, and yet was one of the first YA series I ever read. It has a really great and fresh premise and I adore the characters. In fact I think it might be time for a re-read!

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

I loved The Last Namsara, so when I found out Kristen was writing a follow up I jumped on the chance to read it. Though it focuses on different characters than the first novel, I still found the plot engrossing and I grew to love the newly introduced characters. I will definitely be picking up the third when its published.

Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri

I adored this book. I managed to get hold of an ARC off Netgalley and I blitzed through it within a day. The plot was so fresh and the characters so easily relatable, I was slightly disappointed when I found out it was a standalone. I would definitely read other books set in this world.
