Top 10 Under-Rated Books

It’s Tuesday again!  I still need to write my monthly reading summary, and we won’t even talk about how far behind I am on reviews.  But this week’s Top 10 Tuesday topic (hosted as always by the good folks at the Broke and the Bookish) was both such a fun challenge and an opportunity to promote some of my favorite underappreciated books that I found myself participating again.  The cut-off was officially books that have under 2000 Goodreads ratings, but when I saw how low some of my favorites were, I took it down to under 600, with honorable mentions that have a few more.  Without further ado, here are my top ten under-rated middle grade and teen books, mostly fantasy as usual.  Links to my reveiws; numbers of Goodreads ratings in parentheses.

Top Ten Tuesday

Middle Grade

Honorable Mention: Rose by Holly Webb (1,360)

Teen

Honorable Mention: The Story of Owen by E. K. Johnston (1,769)

  1. Totally agree with you on Ambassadors, Black Dog, and Story of Owen. I need to check out some of those titles I’ve never heard of!

    We did the same thing, I lowered the number of ratings I used because so many of the books I loved have less than 700 ratings. I’m glad we both have Black Dog on our lists! I have Stranger and The Story of Owen in my wishlist, and I have a copy of Stephanie’s Kat, Incorrigible.

      I think I stole your idea of lowering the threshold number of ratings. 🙂 I’m glad to see Black Dog getting love from more than just me, too. You should definitely start the Kat books with Kat, Incorrigible – but the one I listed is where Kat is finally old enough for her own romance. So fun!

    I love almost all of these!!!! (Still haven’t read Stranger, The Demon Catchers of Milan, or The Temple of Doubt.

    • Katy K. says:

      Yay!!! I’m not sure if Demon Catchers would be quite your thing, somehow, but I think you’d really like Stranger and Temple of Doubt.
