Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
Hey guys, Kelly here. I'm excited for this week's Top Ten Tuesday because I feel like we can get some great recommendations out of it! We're tackling:
Top Ten Underrated Books
- Anya Seton's books - best. author. EVER. She is a historical author from the 40s and 50s, but I really do feel that most readers would enjoy her books. Avalon is my personal favorite.
- Carolyn MacCullough's books - when I had to write book reports in a psychology class my senior year of high school about books that had deep psychological issues, I used Carolyn MacCullough's books every time. They are all excellent and I heartily recommend Stealing Henry.
- Falling Angels - this lesser known Tracy Chevalier book still has me gushing two years after I read it. Experience said gushing here!
- Amy & Roger's Epic Detour - now I do realize that this books has practically exploded with popularity in the YA blogging world, but what surprises me most is that is hasn't spread much beyond that.
- Bill Bryson's books - I just wish I could tell everyone about Bill Bryson. His memoirs help quell the insatiable travel bug within me and his humor is perfect.
- Anna McPartlin's books - I'm no expert in contemporary romance in the slightest, but I love Anna McPartlin. She is an Irish writer and most of her books deal with death, but they still manage to be fun and cute (that sounds horrible, but really, it's not). I'd recommend Pack Up the Moon.
- Dreamland - not one of Sarah Dessen's better known books, Dreamland deals with some pretty tough issues (abuse, drugs, runaways), which is exactly why I think more people should read it!
I hate not finishing one of these lists, but that's really all I have. I wasn't too sure about putting some books on the lists, what I may consider underrated/unknown may not be to someone else. Also...I'm finally on summer vacation and have been feeling a bit lazy :) Anyways, be sure to link up and visit some other TTTs!
