This Top Ten Tuesday is all about underrated books. So, what makes a book underrated? At least for this list it has to have 2,000 reviews or less on Goodreads. I tried to steer clear of fairly new releases and focus on some "older" ones. Here are some of my favorites that are considered underrated:
1. Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn - Who doesn't love revenge and the Hamptons? Plus, Katie Finn = Morgan Matson, which makes it a must read for me!
2. The Forget-Me-Not Summer by Leila Howland - This is one of my favorite middle grade beach reads!
3. The Kennedy Wives by Amber Hunt and David Batcher - I love all things Kennedy and thoroughly enjoyed this biography. Plus, you can't make this stuff up! There's major drama in the Kennedy family.
4. The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski- I am a sucker for a Jersey Shore setting and I loved that this book focused on Superstorm Sandy.
5. The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Pam Jenoff - I love historical "beach reads" and fell in love with this one, especially because I appreciated the Philadelphia and Atlantic City settings.
6. Tarnish by Katherine Longshore - Who doesn't love the Tudors for the YA crowd?
7. Under a Dark Summer Sky by Vanessa Lafaye - Again, historical beach reads are my jam and the 1930s Key West setting is fantastic in this novel.
8. Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little - I really enjoyed this YA historical adventure/romance that takes place during the Bronze Age.
9. Lady Catherine, the Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey by Fiona Carnarvon - You probably already know that I am obsessed with Downton Abbey and this novel is a glimpse into the real people who once lived there. Fascinating lives for sure!
10. A Single Breath by Lucy Clarke - I love this fantastic beach read filled with an exotic setting, betrayal, secrets, and romance. A perfect book to throw in your beach bag.
