Hey everyone, I’m back for another Top Ten Tuesday post. Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where they give you a topic each week and you make a list for said topic. This week topic is Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads.
I really haven’t read that many lesser known books so I won’t even make it to 10, but here they are.
- Gambit (C.L. Denault). This dystopian x-men-ish book is awesome. I’ve recently finished it and already written a review that’ll be up sometime this week. [GOODREADS]
- Front Lines (Michael Grant). This being Michael Grant, I was surprised to find it only has 1400+ ratings on goodreads. Front Lines is a World War 2 book led by 3 amazing narrators that asked the question “what if they let females to serve during WW2?” It’s an interesting, gory read supported by great character development. [GOODREADS]
- Fall from Grace (Richard North Patterson). A great thriller from an author famous for writing legal and political novels. [GOODREADS]
- A Conflict of Interest (Adam Mitzner). You could totally see I’m a fan of legal thriller… A Conflict of Interest is a lesser known legal thriller, but it’s definitely worth your time if you’re a fan of crime thrillers. [GOODREADS]
- Resurrection Bay (Neal Shusterman). Very short read, only about 30 pages on ebook. It gave me chills though. [GOODREADS]
- Stupid Perfect World (Scott Westerfeld). A sci-fi novella from Westerfeld sets in futuristic world free of disease and hunger. What happened when a group of teens taking a class in Scarcity were forced to experience ‘hardship’ (aka our life)? Probably not my favorite of his, but I really liked the concept. [GOODREADS]
- Blaze of Glory (Michael Pryor). Read this ages ago, didn’t quite remember what happened, but it was a fun adventure involving magic. I think. [GOODREADS]
Believe it or not, that’s all I got. I totally need to read more diverse books and indies. So please leave me your recommendation below.

Oh! I’ve heard of Gambit and Front Lines. It’s surprising they have below 2000 ratings. Great list! 😀
Thank you Jesse! 🙂
I think Gambit has received some spotlights from other bloggers too. As for Front Lines, I’m very surprised it wasn’t that popular because it was one of Grant’s best work in my opinion.
It’s so big though… It might take me a while to read it 😛
That is really surprising about Front Lines! I’ve never read it, but I love Michael Grant’s Gone series. I should really check it out!
I love Gone series too. I think you’re going to enjoy (that might not be the correct term though LOL) Front Lines if you like Gone. I found Front Lines to be more similar to Gone than to BZRK/Grant’s other series, especially in term of character development.
Thanks for stopping by Holly! 🙂
Gambit sounds interesting! Agree that Stupid, Perfect World had a really interesting concept. I might consider reading Front Lines, but WWII can be a confusing subject for me since I had relatives in both allied and axis countries. I downloaded Resurrection Bay a long time ago, but never read it. Maybe I’ll need to change that!
Yes, it is! Hope you get to read Gambit some time. Ooh I understand, it’s sometimes felt weird too reading a WW2 book because my country indirectly gains its independence due to WW2. Front Lines is more about the people in the army though and not politics or feud between countries, although it’s definitely in there too. I think what Grant was aiming for was a book about survival, discrimination and diversity even in the face of war.
I hope so too, it sounds like something I’d enjoy!
I don’t know, still feels weird. I’m American, but one of my great grandfathers was a cook for the German army during WWII. He was often on the front lines. The German army didn’t like him much.
It’s weird thinking of people from my country trying to kill my great grandfather.
Oh, I see. That’s a very valid reason to avoid certain type of books.
