Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.



This week's topic is: Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads


*in no particular order


1. THE IRON KING GRAPHIC NOVEL by Julie Kagawa--I loved the Iron Fey series and was psyched to learn of this graphic novel sometime ago. It's a little hard to track down, so I wonder if that's why it doesn't have many ratings.
2. MEMORIES OF DEATH by A.P. Fuchs--I can't even really remember reading this one! It's been so long ago! 2011 according to Goodreads, and there's been 100s of books since then! Like seriously 100 or more a year! Reading my review so didn't help! More of my early review writing! LOL! But apparently I really enjoyed the whole forbidden vampire romance going on!
3. RECKONING by Veronica Wolff--I loved this one! I feel like it might not as many ratings because the book just released in April and fans of the series might not realize we finally have our finale!


4. RELENTLESS by Tera Lynn Childs & Tracy Deebs--I loved this one! Though, it's a sequel in a duology and it just released not too long ago. All factors I'm considering of the low review number. But it was awesome! Definitely a good idea to binge the series now!
5. NIGHTSTRUCK by Jenna Black--I feel like this one got a lot of mixed reviews. I personally loved it! I thought it was creepy and weird, which is the perfect mix for me. Granted some things didn't make sense, but that's part of the weirdness and mystery!
6. HUNT by Alyssa Rose Ivy--this is Alyssa's latest release from April. It's in the same world as her first series, The Crescent Chronicles. But you don't have to have read all the series before this one to enjoy it! That's the magic of all her series! Though characters and events from series past are mentioned. But I pretty much recommend her whole Chronicles world series because they are pure Paranormal New Adult awesomeness!


7. TEMPTED BY FIRE by Erin Kellison--we're talking DRAGONS! For adults!! Adult dragons!! It was awesome!! 
8. THE RULES by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie--a creepy thriller that I love from my first author duo that I've ever read! I adore their books! This one was creepy and I loved it!
9. BAD BLOOD by Lucienne Diver--a fun series involving Greek gods and goddesses and mythical monsters! It's a kickass kind of Urban Fantasy read!


10. BRIAR ROSE by Jana Oliver--shocked and sad to see this one with less than 800 reviews! I adored this one sooo much! Such a fun and unique twist to a beloved fairy tale!

  1. I almost bought Briar Rose once but didn't after seeing a few bad reviews and have regretted it ever since. I'm glad to see you enjoyed it though!

  2. The Rules looks pretty good - going to have to check it out! I also think I have Briar Rose on my TBR! Can't believe you have an eARC of The Architect of Song! I can't wait for that book! Great list

  3. I can't wait to pick up Powerless & then Relentless this summer - I heard great things about both books and they sound super-intriguing. I haven't heard of the others before, but omg, The Rules sounds awesome... and that cover is so pretty.
    Wonderful picks!

  4. So was it amusement or disgust? Nice picks for your top ten. I didn't realize people looked at the amount of reviews a book receives. Maybe I am picking my books wrong.

  10. I love the cover for 'The Architect of Song' so beautiful! I don't recognize that many of these books on your TTT list. I might have to check out that Veronica Wolff as I think the first book is free (always up for a good free book !).

  18. Never read any of these books.
    And i like this top 10 very much. Now we get to see books we never see or try to read because there are so less ratings about them.

    Thanks for your comment on mu top 10 (5)

  20. I added Tempted by Fire and Bad Blood to my to-read list. They look like good ones. Now I'm curious which books I've loved have less than 2000.

  24. Nice choices! I haven't even heard of any of these. Since I'm one of those who goes by covers, I'd have to say Relentless and Nightstruck would have caught my eye in the library or store. I'll have to check them out!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Ah man, I keep meaning to get my hands on the Iron King graphic novel! I love anything Julie and I always forget those exist. I don't think I've heard of any of the others, although Reckoning and Relentless seem vaguely familiar. Nightstruck looks pretty cool! I've been wanting to read something by Jenna Black for some time. Great list!
