Happy Tuesday everyone! That means it's another Top 10 Tuesday hosted by the ladies over at the Broke and the Bookish! : ) I hope you guys are excited about today's topic. The original topic was top 10 books I loved more/less than I thought I would, but I decided to mix it up and go with 10 books I love that no one else really knows about. I based my decisions on books that had less than 2000 ratings on goodreads. Keeping reading to see what I chose for the week! : )
Changing Corners (4 Ratings). Yes this book only has four ratings which includes my own. I found this book on Amazon for my Kindle and read it last year for #diverseathon. I thought it was great and absolutely loved the story. I wish that more people knew about it. Paper Things (1,256 Ratings). I read this book last year because it was nominated to receive a South Carolina book award. It tackles some heavy issues such as young adult homelessness. I thought it was amazing and heartbreaking. Choices (444). This was a part of my journey into urban fiction and I devoured all of it in about two days. It definitely is worth a read.
Saving Kabul Corner (237 Ratings). This was a great insight to the culture surrounding Afghanistan. It's a children's book, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to read a book that is dynamic, innovative, and fun. The Secret of Dreadwillow Carse (206). I read this book as an ARC from Netgalley and I really enjoyed it. It was mysterious and filled with a Louisiana bayou type feel. Still I Rise (144). This is a lesser known graphic novel. It chronicles black history from the time of slavery all the way up to Barack Obama's election. It had it's problems, but overall I really enjoyed it.
Stepping to A New Day (270 Ratings). I received this one as part of a book blog tour and I didn't realize that it was the 7th in a series, but my goodness I absolutely loved it and I plan on reading the rest of the series soon. Bayou (1,688 Ratings). This is a great graphic novel series that I found and loved. Unfortunately, I don't think the author Jeremy Love ever finished the series. Dixieland Sushi (1097 Ratings). Cara Lockwood is a great contemporary author that I randomly picked up a few years ago. She writes with such ease and fluidity and her works are always humorous.
The Blacker the Berry (395 Ratings). This is another book that I picked up randomly from my local library and I'm glad that I did. It's a compilation of poetry and it focuses of the different shades that make up the black community. It's beautiful and a must read for everyone.
