Top Ten Tuesday, January 17th

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list for bloggers to answer.

This week's list topic is:

Top Ten Underrated/Hidden Gem Books We've Read In The Past Year Or So

I read a decent amount of books last year and while my choices for today weren't exactly completely unknown, a lot of them were not overly advertised or on the top seller lists.  Here are the books I considered hidden gems:

and my favorite hidden gem is actually an entire series that I didn't even know existed until I fell upon it by accident.  I loved every book in the series equally and was sad when the ending finally came.


  1. Nice list of books. Many new book titles for me to check out!!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2017/01/top-ten-tuesday-ten-underratedhidden.html

  2. Nightfall gets me with that cover alone! And after reading the synopsis I'm intrigued! The Bachelor Girls Guide to Murder is another I'm interested in. And I agree about The Clockwork Scarab- you don't see those around much but I liked it! I still have book 3 to read...

  3. I'm so glad to see Jackaby on your list - I love the whole series and I can't wait for more! :)

  4. Oh Jackaby, I have that book but still haven't read it!

  5. Seeing "Jackaby" on your list makes me really happy, I loved this series from the very first chapter and it gets even better with every book. "Ghostly Echoes" is definitely my favorite and I really hope the next (and sadly final…) book will provide a good conclusion to the series! :)
