Top Ten Tuesday Underrated/Hidden Gem Books I’ve Read In The Past Year Or So

Hello fellow List Lovers!

I think Top Ten Tuesday is going to become my favorite book meme/tag I love me a good list. I have 1 book on my list from 2015 but I just didn’t read too many great books last year that I would consider underrated. Nevertheless I do have 10 so lets jump right in!

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! (Confessions #1) by Kay Marie

I actually received this as an arc through Netgally and was so surprised at how funny it was. It has great representation of female friendship and a great message of stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things. I need to get onto book 2!

Better When He’s Bad (Welcome to the Point #1) by Jay Crownover

Most romance readers who have read a Jay Crownover book have read her Marked Men series but I feel like I never hear anyone talk about her Welcome to the Point series. This is by far my favourite from her, it is so addictive and full of interesting and unique characters and it doesn’t try to be anything more than what it is.

44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir by B.B. Easton

This book is so unique in the Romance genre and I feel like more people need to read it. Not only is it funny but it shows that you can love more than one person in your life before you find the one and that the experience you have with your ex’s are still important. Oh and how to subtly manipulate your husband to get more adventurous in the sheets, that is also a great life lesson.

Calico by Callie Hart

I feel like in general not enough people are reading Callie Hart novels, I do understand however that it is a bit of niche genre. For Callie this was actually a kind of sweet novel at the same time as being super sad and dark. If you like a bit of dark contemporary romance you should definitely read one of her books.

Cam Girl by Leah Raeder, Elliot Wake

One of my favourite reads of last year and more people need to read it! This is how you write about art, depression, sexuality, love and being part of the New Adult age bracket. This book taught me so much about bisexuality and I will always cherish it for opening that window on something I can never fully understand.

The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis

Now if you live in Australia you have most likely read or heard about The Sidekicks, however if you live outside of Australia you probably haven’t. Such a brilliant book about loss and grief, moving on and finding yourself! Also set in Australia so it’s great, obviously.

Virtually Impossible (Once and Forever #2) by Lauren Stewart

I love Lauren Stewart but I never hear anyone in the bookish communities really talking about her work. Her books are so addictive and generally once I start I cannot put them down. I will admit though I didn’t really like her Paranormal series but the Once and Forever series is perfection

The Foxhole Court (All for the Game #1) by Nora Sakavic 

Although I did find a few issues with this series I think more people need to read this series and talk about it. It’s such a diverse book and it does it so effortlessly. I think I will be doing a reread this year, if anyone is interested in buddy reading.

Sincerely, Carter (Sincerely Carter #1) by Whitney G.

I was surprised by how much I really enjoyed this book. I just thought it was going to be good to pass the time, a bit of a light fluffy read. It was actually super cute and I awed so much throughout it.

A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole 

I haven’t had this blog for very long but I feel like I’ve mentioned Tillie Cole like a hundred times. Seriously guys you’ve got to read this book it just makes my heart melt!

So there you go! Any underrated books I should be on the look out for? Did you find any books on the list that you think are underrated as well?

    I’ve had Crownover’s Welcome to the Point series sitting on my shelf for over a year but I haven’t found the time to binge read it. I love her Marked Men and Saints of Denver series’ so much, so I’m sure this series won’t let me down as well.
