Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gem Books

If you've been around my blog before at all, you'll know I love recommending the books fewer people know about, the #quietYA titles that need a little more love. So any time Top Ten Tuesday has a topic where I get to recommend those, I get super excited. I'm gonna stick mostly to 2018 releases for this post, just because the year is halfway over and there are only so many books that got on the NYT bestseller list. Also... because these books deserve more attention, I'm hosting a couple giveaway! Details at the bottom.

1. Not Now, Not Ever by Lily Anderson

2. The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo

3. Chaotic Good by Whitney Gardner

4. Don't Touch by Rachel M. Wilson

5. The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

6. What You Always Wanted by Kristin Rae

7. Maid of Secrets and Maid of Deception by Jennifer McGowan

8. Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke

9. The Shadow Cipher by Laura Ruby

10. The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash

11. In a Perfect World by Trish Doller

12. More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

13. Calling My Name by Liara Tamani

14. Monday's Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson

15. Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

And now for the giveaway! First up, some rules:

1. No cheating. I check entries.
2. The giveaway is open internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to you.
3. If you're the winner, you must reply to my email within 48 hours; otherwise, I will choose another winner.


  1. What a great list! I would choose Even the Darkest Stars.

  2. I got Even The Darkest Stars in a FairyLoot box, but just haven't read it yet!
    My TTT:

  3. I'd choose YORK! :)

  4. I’ve seen Calling My Name on a few TTT lists today. I’ll have to look it up and see what I’m missing.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  5. Yes, I really want to try The Shadow Cipher - it looks like it has a lot of potential. :)

  8. Great books! I would choose The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo.

  9. Great list, and I'll definitely give them a look! The one that was already on my wishlist is CALLING MY NAME, so I'd pick that one!

  10. Fantastic recommendations, Emma! I read popular books all the time, but also, I love reading reviews to discover books that not a lot of people talk about. I've had the pleasure of finding many hidden gems! I've heard about a few of the ones on your list, and now I want to know about the other ones! I don't know which one I'd choose, probably Monday's Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson! Thank you for the list, and for the giveaway!

  11. Great list, love the idea of sharing #quietYA titles that definitely deserve more attention. Actually read a few of them, but also added some on my TBR list. I would most likely pick In a Perfect World by Trish Doller.
    Thank you for a generous giveaway!
