Top Ten Tuesday #114 - Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fabulous girls cover at The Broke & The Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads

Wow, this was fun! What a great idea to do it using Goodreads! I was quite surprised by the results, especially as all the picture books that are listed on my Goodreads account courtesy of Em & Fred came up too. I started by listing books with under 2000 ratings but after going through 4 pages of books I realised that that number was far too high and decided to go for books with 1000 or fewer ratings. That still threw up an awful lot of books but I've somehow narrowed them down to less than 100 books!

Here are some of my most underrated reads according to Goodreads...


 211

A British thriller I borrowed from the library on impulse.


176

I borrowed this through Kindle Unlimited, it's a 'magic vs. technology' fantasy which was okay.


111

Required reading for every teen here's my review...


557

I love Ali Shaw's writing so I'm flabbergasted by the low rating number!


650

How does this book only have 650 ratings?!? Here's my review!


164

This had to be one of the quirkiest books I've ever read, a must for anyone who likes fairy tales and books.


66

What? I can't believe this beautiful book has only been rated 66 times. Read it and I defy you not to have at least a tear in your eye by the end.


6

A fantastic YA thriller by the author of Poison Boy this was a complete page turner!



215

I really expected this to have a much higher number. I saw people talking about it everywhere!



 170

 I'm a huge fan of Oscar de Muriel's series featuring Frey and McGray, if you enjoy crime historical thrillers with a hint of woo woo then definitely read them!


305

This is another one that I'm really shocked by. I've seen this mentioned in so many places I can't believe it only has 305 ratings...


97

A hugely enjoyable thriller/mystery I loved this book, here's my review!


551

This really does surprise me, especially as it won the Costa Book Award 2014 and was nominated for a Carnegie award. Here's my review!

  1. I love your selection! I want to read them all!! Good girls don't die has been in our Book club for quite some time now, I will bring it home and keep it safe next month. The man who rained sounds very nice. Have you read The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman? You might enjoy that as well.

  4. Wow, you have a great collection! Really interested in The Book Collection - I love quirk, books, and fairy tales, so this seems perfect. Fever of the Blood is also going on my TBR!

    And it might just be me, but your collection seems to have an immense amount of gorgeous covers!
