Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gem Books


Happy Tuesday! I’m really excited about this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme because we’re sharing our Top Ten Hidden Gem Books–ย who isn’t excited to talk about fantastic books that deserve more praise? There are so many amazing books out there that deserve a larger audience and that aren’t talked about or read often enough. Narrowing down this list to only ten books was not easy, but I did it! In no particular order, here are ten hidden gem books that I highly recommend:











What are some of your favorite books that deserve more time in the spotlight? What do you think of the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

    1. OMG, I would LOVE it if Unbeatable Squirrel Girl became a TV show. It would be so fun and hilarious, as well as really great to see such an awesome female heroine on television. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Glad to hear from another fan of Graceling! It doesn’t seem to get much buzz in the online bookish community, so I always get really excited when I find out that someone else has read it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. haha same!! It’s always so exciting to hear from someone else who has read and loved a book that usually doesn’t get talked about much. Have you read the sequel? (I highly recommend it!!) ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. I didn’t mind Shadowscale, but it definitely wasn’t at the same level that Seraphina was for me. I often find that sequels are rarely as good or better than the first book in a series.

    1. Oooh, let me know what you think of them whenever you get around to reading them! I’d especially love to hear your thoughts on Graceling because I haven’t talked with many people who have read it before ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Yay! You’ve included one of my favorite reads: Graceling! I’ve reread that book several times haha. I absolutely love Katsa and Po is still one of my favorite book boyfriends. I haven’t read Seraphina, but I’ve been meaning to ever since it came out. I’d love to read it sometime this year. Great list, Holly!

    1. Ahhh I’m so excited that you love Graceling, too! It seems like people rarely talk about it in the online bookish community, which is surprising because it’s SO GREAT. โค Po is everything, and Katsa is such a cool heroine. Hope you enjoy Seraphina!!


    1. The only other book I’ve read by John Corey Whaley is Noggin, which I enjoyed (although not as much as Where Things Come Back haha). I’ll definitely have to check out Highly Illogical Behavior some time!
