T10T: Hidden Gems


Top Ten Tuesday was originally put together by The Broke and the Bookish and has been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Hidden Gems — aka books that deserve some more recognition! For this one, I sorted my “read” shelf by “number of ratings” ascending and chose some four to five star books that I feel more people should read!


Policing the Black Man
This is a really wonderful collection of essays about the history of racism in the US. I personally felt I learned a lot from it!

I don’t usually read MG books, but the cover sold me on this one. On top of that, it’s a quick read and it has queer characters in it. I was surprised to see it had so few reviews (only 43 at the time of writing this post)!

A Cat Named Darwin
I don’t have a review for this one, since I read it before I started writing reviews, but I adored this! It’s a really sweet story about the author’s adoption of a stray cat and I cried at the end and I’ve actually been meaning to reread it again soon.

I’m Not Missing
A very compelling story about love and loss. It contains a nice mix of fluff and serious issues, and I’m again surprised that this one didn’t gain more of a following!

Eden was very interesting because it explored the aftermath of trauma rather than guiding the reader only through the trauma itself. I can see how this one wouldn’t necessarily be for everyone, but I also think it’s certainly worth a read if the concept interests you.
