Today is Wednesday, which means T5W!
This week’s topic is: Favorite Underrated Books – Give some love to those books that aren’t as widely talked about. Those hidden gems. Those books that maybe used to be popular but people have forgotten about and they still deserve some love.
1. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
I feel like this book isn’t as talked about, or read in the books community, and it should be! I absolutely loved this book, and the message that it has. I feel like everyone should give this book a try.
2. Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross
This book got me out of a book slump because it was a very easy and light read. Even though it’s a historical fiction, it read like a contemporary. From the cover alone, I was expecting a historical fiction/royalty type of storyline, but I was way off. I still enjoyed it though, and thought it was a cute read.
3. In the Woods by Tana French
This is a murder mystery novel and it’s so interesting! This was my very first murder mystery novel and it got me hooked to that genre. This is one thing I did not like, but I won’t be discussing it because spoilers. But other than that one thing, it’s a great suspenseful read.
4. Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah
I read this book back in 8th grade and I really enjoyed it. It was interesting and sad to read what this poor girl had to go through. I don’t remember anything being too graphic, so it’s not a hard read. I remember that this book also delved into how life was like in China during the 1940s. This book really made me appreciate my life and my wonderful loving family.
I couldn’t think of a 5th one, a lot of the other books that I’ve read are pretty hyped up/well known. But have you guys read a really good book that’s underrated? Let me know!
Thanks for reading ❤
