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: Ten Underrated/Hidden Gem Books I've Read In The Past Year Or So

*in no particular order
**going to be hard since if I enjoy a book, I don't think of it as underrated! 

10. STRUCK by Amanda Carlson--NORSE MYTHOLOGY people!! While not involving Thor, it still has those same concepts. Minus the superhero motif. 
9. ARCANA RISING by Kresley Cole--I feel like people don't truly know how awesome this series is! It's freaking amazing!!! Tarot cards come to life and having a battle to the death practically! And it has an insanely awesome love triangle that will seriously leave you not knowing who to choose!!
8. DOON by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon--I only just started this series last year and I must say it was amazing! I still need to read the last book too. It's sort of a time travel book, but more like traveling to a fantasy world instead of straight up past!

7. THE IMMORTAL THRONE by Bree Despain--I looooved this series! You guys don't understand how much torment I suffered when the original publisher closed up shop before the third book released with the second book having a HUMONGOUS cliffhanger!
6. HUNT by Alyssa Rose Ivy--Alyssa is my most favorite NA author ever! She writes paranormal NA people!! Shapeshifters! And every book has been amazing!!
5. THE STORYSPINNER by Becky Wallace--I still need to read the last one to this duology but it's another I feel like I don't see around enough. It's a loosely retold story of Sleeping Beauty and I have to say I enjoyed this first installment far more than I thought I would!

4. GRETA AND THE LOST ARMY by Chloe Jacobs--this is another amazing series I don't see enough of! It's definitely got that Labyrinth vibe what with Goblin kings and mystical worlds! This was the final book of the trilogy and it was perfect!
3. RECKONING by Veronica Wolff--another of my most favorite series that I feared was in danger of disappearing forever, but then Veronica finally wrote the final book! And it. Was. Awesome!!!
2. REMEMBRANCE by Meg Cabot--truly don't see enough of this one! The Mediator series was my lifesaver as a teenager and to see...to HAVE this book  come out years later...it was INCREDIBLE! This is what is must have felt like for all your Veronica Mars fans when the movie released!! I ADORED this book!!

1. STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Manisclco--perhaps I might be misjudging this one by calling it "under appreciated", but again, I felt like I didn't see it around enough. Once I Jack the Ripper in the title I was immediately intrigued! It was a most incredible read too!!



  1. Loved the teaser from Windwitch! I agree Struck does not get enough love.

  2. I started reading Windwitch too! And I also need to read Storyspinner!

  3. The Storyspinner is one I've wanted to read for awhile now. It sounds so good!

  4. Windwitch sounds interesting!

    Mine this week is from a historical novel: https://wp.me/p3Nz8P-1aY

  5. Windwitch is on my stack and I hope to get a chance to read it soon. I haven't read any of your underappreciated books. Looks like I have more for my wishlist. As usual, I have two this week - The Cold Eye by Laura Anne Gilman and Southern Gothic by Dale Wiley. Happy reading!

  6. Got Windwitch on my reading list. All of these books look wonderful.

    My TT from Sweet Lake

  7. I've seen Windwitch a few times browsing my library, I'll have to check it out! And I agree, Stalking Jack the Ripper doesn't get enough love. The audiobook for it is amazing!

  8. I just saw The Storyspinner on someone else's list today. I remember seeing the cover when it was released, but I never picked it up. I might have to make sure to check it out. Have a great week!

  9. I haven't heard of any of these, but some of them sound insanely good! I'll have to get to adding a few to my to-read list.

  10. Yay to The Storyspinner. I love that series so much. The Skylighter actually made my list. I hope you read and enjoy it. And I agree on Stalking Jack the Ripper. I know a lot of people love it but there wasn't a lot of hype. Great list!

  11. A few of these are new to me, but Doon is on my TBR list since I was able to get a copy earlier this year! I can't wait to get to it!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  12. I've heard of Stalking the Ripper and it is on my ever growing reading wishlist. The rest of the books are new to me.

  13. Looks like some interesting picks here. I like the covers of The Storyspinner and Gretta and the Lost Army. Here's my intro/teaser for today: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1s6

  14. Ugh, Storyspinner is so good! I also have Arcana Rising on audiobook but have not read it yet!

  15. These are great! I keep seeing Stalking the Ripper so I'll have to take a closer look. I haven't read any Med Cabot books but I know she is popular. What would you suggest to start with?
