Top Ten Books With 2,000 Ratings Or Less
I really like this take on underrated books, because underrated can be really subjective. It was fun looking at the books I’ve really enjoyed that have 2,000 ratings or less. Clicking on the title will take you to goodreads! These are my top ten underrated books!
- Joyride by Anna Banks, with 1,837 ratings. This book is so heartbreaking (and there were times where it made me so angry on Carly’s behalf), and I think it deserves a lot more attention!
- The Secret Sky by Atia Abawi, with 491 ratings. For some reason, I thought The Secret Sky had more ratings! It really made me think about what it’s like to not be with the person you love because of where you live.
- Taking Flight by Michaela DePrince, with 1,137 ratings. I love this memoir, where DePrince went from being a girl with a number at an orphange to being a ballerina.
- Pandemic by Yvonne Ventresca, with 569 ratings. This book seemed very real, like it’s something that could actually happen.
- My Best Friend, Maybe by Caela Carter, with 789 ratings. I just love the complicated look at friendship in this book.
- Crow by Barbara Wright, with 1,385 ratings. I really like this book because it’s about a period in time I knew nothing about.
- Witchstruck by Victoria Lamb, with 974 ratings. I love the combination of paranormal and Tudor England. They go so well together!
- A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier, with 1,185 ratings. This book and Pandemic are good read-alikes for each, because A Death-Struck Year focuses on the Spanish Flu pandemic, which doesn’t seem to be a common back-drop for historical fiction…but it’s also a really good one!
- The Crown by Colleen Oakes, with 989 ratings. I just love this dark re-telling of Alice In Wonderland.
- Me Since You by Laura Weiss, with 1,286 ratings. I felt so much for Rowan, and how one event can have such a big impact on everyone around you.
