Top Ten Hidden Gems I’ve Read
I don’t know that I read a lot of Hidden Gems – though I also don’t tend to read books based on popularity. These are ten books that I’ve read and loved that I haven’t seen many in the blogosphere talking about. I gave them at least 4 stars and they have less than 530 ratings on Goodreads. Most less than 100!
- Streets of Payne by Jeff Bracket. This one has only 27 reviews of Goodreads! When I saw that I was shocked. I remember enjoying this dystopian police detective story and wish there were more.
- Five Golden Rings by Jeffe Kennedy. I think people are familiar with Jeffe Kennedy, bu this book has a shocking 66 reviews on Goodreads. I had so much fun with this – though I know it’s not Jeffe’s most popular genre- it’s erotica. Good erotica 😉
- Revive by Tracy Martin. It’s a damn shame that this book only has 80 reviews on Goodreads. I read it in June 2015 (I remember without looking it up, it was that memorable) and loved every minute. I devoured it.
- North Pole Reform School by Jaimie Admans. Unlike Five Golden Rings this is a sweet holiday story, with 109 reviews on Goodreads.
- The Holdout by Laurel Osterkamp. With only 154 reviews on Goodreads, a lot of people are missing out on this story that kept me up all night. I just couldn’t put it down! It’s like watching the behind the scenes of Survivor but infinitely better!
- Devious Minds by Colleen Helme. I just grabbed one of the Shelby books from my shelves for this – but I adore this series! This cozy mystery with a pinch of paranormal starts with Carrots. All the books have less than 300 reviews on Goodreads which is just so sad!
- Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett. I’ve had so much fun with this UF series and y’all probably know her! She’s Danielle at Coffee and Characters. I admit I picked this up because (1) I wanted to support a blogger and (2) would you look at that cover? But I’ve kept reading the series because I’ve enjoyed it. With 422 reviews it’s not as overlooked but still could use some love!
- Minutes Before Sunset by Shannon A. Thompson. I forget how Shannon and I connected, but she sent me her first book in this series for review and I read the whole thing on the train from Dallas to Chicago. I remember being really sucked in with the way she played with good and evil in terms of light and dark. With 477 reviews on Goodreads this series is being overlooked and that’s a shame 🙁
- Jubilee Manor by Bethany Hagen. I picked up this series at RT in 2015. Something about it called to me and, though I didn’t read it until this past year, I’m so glad I grabbed it. I enjoyed this dystopian story that related and reinterpreted history. This one just tops 500 reviews at 516.
- Last but far from least, The Night series by R.S. Black (once known as Marie Hall). Y’all this series was my first *blogging* discovery. This series tore my heart out and stomped on it over and over. I loved it so much and I miss it. I think it may be time for a re-read. This one, All Hallows Night may have been my favorite and has only 529 reviews. 🙁
