Today’s Topic: Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
In my own mind, I am a champion of the under-rated book or author. There’s nothing I like better than discovering a book that is under the radar and then raving about it to everyone I know. Honestly, it makes me feel “in the know.” But I also like the idea of bringing to attention authors or books who I feel deserve it.
This week’s list includes several series, as well as single titles.
One of the most stunning series I’ve ever read. It’s also my very favorite. This historical drama follows a young woman who unexpectedly becomes an heiress and finds herself as a pawn in a game played by some very powerful men.
I’d heard about this Australian historical novel for years. It did not disappoint! I liked the marriage of convenience story line, but I really loved the hero the most. My review
This historical series set in 19th century Florida is unique in its’ portrayal of the Indian culture. I also appreciate how multi-cultural the series is.
What a surprise, another historical fiction title makes my list! I enjoyed this sweet tale of an heiress managing her father’s empire who teaches through correspondence, a nobleman, the details of business finance. My review
This series is contemporary romantic suspense with an emphasis on ROMANCE and SUSPENSE. I’m always exhilarated and exhausted after finishing one of these stories. Review of If Spring Comes
As much historical fiction that I read, I rarely come across anything featuring the history of California. It is a fascinating time as portrayed in this series.
I love a good gothic-lite romance and this one features a wounded, skittish heroine and one of the most patient, self-sacrificing heroes I’ve ever read.
Ya’ll, the first book in this duo only has 157 ratings on Goodreads. That is a crime! This YA/New Adult duology has heart and unexpected depth. Plus, some of its’ settings include Paris and Ireland. Review of The Bridge and The Long Walk.
I don’t read a lot of crime drama or mysteries, but I find this one about a female forensic crime investigator fascinating. This series is a spin off the earlier Raleigh Harmon FBI Mystery series.
