T5W #2: Under-rated books.

This week’s topic is under-rated books; books that aren’t as widely talked about. The hidden gems, the books that may be used to popular but people have forgotten about.

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group now run by Samantha at Thoughts On Tomes. Where you are given a topic to post about every Wednesday; simple. You can find the link to the Goodreads group here.

I definitely wouldn’t class these as under-rated but I definitely don’t see them mentioned as much around the blogging community or bookstagram.

  1. The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers

    I have infinite amounts of adoration for this book and its characters. With ease this book catapulted itself into one of my absolute favourites. I don’t see it around that often but it’s so, so, so wonderful.

  2. Delirium – Lauren Olivier

    I’ll be the first to say I did not like where this trilogy ended up. This first book in said trilogy started off tremendously, pulling the reader into this world and Lena’s life. I was truly gripped by the concept and the writing.

  3. Beautiful Broken Things – Sara Barnard

    There’s something inherently relatable about this book, especially given that it was set in England – which is nice to read for me. Also, one of the main themes for this book is female friendships which is refreshing.

  4. Night Owls – Jenn Bennett

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, not a five star read sure but both the main characters are interesting without being overdone and their romance is believable and not rushed. And the plot never became too unrealistic, it was just a very well done book.

  5. Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell

    Definitely not underrated by any means, but sometimes overshadowed by Fangirl, Eleanor and Park is such an emotional, raw read that I would recommend this to so many people.


What books do you think are under the radar and need to be thrust into the spotlight?
