Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved That Are Criminally Underrated

So we're gauging this by Goodreads ratings (under 2,000 is the cut-off Jana set when she gave the topic). There are some books I absolutely adore that no one seems to know about or love as much as me. Maybe this'll motivate more people to pick up these titles! Also, I was careful to pick books that have already released, just so it's a little more fair.

1. Analee, in Real Life by Janelle Milanes

2. Snow in Love by Melissa de la Cruz, Nic Stone, Aimee Friedman, and Kasie West

3. The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls by Jessica Spotswood

4. The Length of a String by Elissa Brent Weissman

5. The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth

6. In a Perfect World by Trish Doller


8. Diamonds & Deceit and Emeralds & Ashes by Leila Rasheed
Even the first book in the trilogy comes in just above the cut-off. (And I'm sure book 3 is hurt by the fact that they only released it as an e-book.)

9. This Side of Home by Renee Watson
Why is no one reading Renee's earlier YA??? This isn't to say Piecing Me Together isn't amazing and doesn't deserve attention and accolades, but I love This Side of Home.

10. Rules for 50/50 Chances by Kate McGovern

11. The Comeback Season by Jennifer E. Smith
Yes, it's sad, but it has a baseball-loving protagonist. So many people talk about how they want more sports in YA books. Well, here ya go!

12. Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu

Which books do you love and wish more people would read?


  1. thanks Emma. The book by Weissman looks tempting. My post is here: https://wordsandpeace.com/2019/02/19/top-ten-underrated-books/ - from another Emma!

  2. The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls sounds very interesting.

  3. Thanks for linking your books to Goodreads! So many people are not doing that this week, which I find really weird. I added The Length of a String and the Light Between Worlds to my TBR. They both look really good.
