Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2,000 Ratings On Goodreads. I’m kind of surprised how many of my new favorite books have under 2,000 ratings. Get reading these amazing 2015-2016 books people! You won’t regret it.
1. Summer of Sloane – I loved this book. The writing was absolutely amazing. This is one of my all-time favorites. Summertime in beautiful Hawaii? Yes please!
2. If I Was Your Girl – Such a great book. It focuses on a trans teen, and her journey through a new high school while also showing heartbreaking things that happened to her in the past.
3. Symptoms of Being Human – Another amazing book. Riley is gender fluid, and I learned a lot from reading this book. There are blog posts featured in here, and I thought they were really interesting.
4. The Girl Who Fell – A book that focuses on a darker subject (abusive relationships). I thought the writing was amazing, and that this was such a powerful book.
5. You and Me, Always – This is the only adult novel featured on here. I love Jill Mansell’s writing, so I’m always down to read her new books when they come out.
6. Underwater – Another amazing debut. I loved the focus on agoraphobia and PTSD. We slowly learn how Morgan became afraid to leave her apartment, and how she slowly overcomes her anxiety.
7. My Kind of Crazy – This book was awesome! It was a lot sadder/intense than I thought it would be from the summary, but I still loved it regardless.
8. Hello? – I’d heard so much hype from bloggers about this one, so I was a little apprehensive, especially with multiple POVs too. But I ended up loving this book. The POVs were unique and well done. The plot was intense, raw, and emotionally charged.
9. Forget Tomorrow – I had to include a dystopian novel, because I feel like they don’t get enough love. I personally love dystopian books. This book was no exception. The writing could have been a little stronger in some spots, but overall it was an amazing read. I can’t wait for book two.
10. Paint My Body Red – The more I read of this book, the more I loved it. There are two different time periods that the book switches between: ‘Then’ and ‘Now’. Overall, a fast-paced and engaging story. Heidi wasn’t afraid to show dark stuff in her book, and I loved that.
