Top Ten Tuesday: Underrated Books

Ok, so it's really hard to decide which books are underrated and which ones are over hyped, so I came up with a list of books that I feel deserve more attention and more people talking about them as they are some of my favorites! 

1. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys - Ruta's other book, Between Shades of Grey, gets a lot of attention and because of that, I feel many people have overlooked this fantastic historical read. I always recommend it, especially to fans of the genre.

2.  Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg - If you love When Harry Met Sally or the whole Pacey/Dawson relationship on Dawson's Creek, then you'll love this book.

3.  A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams - This one is my favorite beach read of 2013. It should not be missed!

4. Love and Other Foregin Words by Erin McCahan - This book took me by surprise and will end up on my "Best Books of 2014" list. I absolutely loved it.  I need more people to read it!

5.  These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner - I definitely thought this book was going to get more hype than it did. It definitely deserves all the hype, especially if you love sci-fi.

6. Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty - I am always surprised but the amount of people that have never read this series. Many of my blogger friends are fans, but my other friends have never even heard of it!

7.  Undone by Cat Clarke - This book gutted me this past summer. So powerful!

8.  Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland - This book is one of my favorite beach reads and fans of a good summertime read definitely need to check it out! 

9.  On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves - Such an all-consuming and juicy read, which makes it the perfect addition to your beach bag.

10.  Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen - I read this book last fall and fell in love with the story, the characters, and the atmosphere (perfect for Halloween!).  If you are a fan of Poe, definitely check out this historical read.

What do you think of my list? What books do you feel are underrated and deserve more attention? Let me know! This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
