Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Need More Love on Goodreads


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is about fantastic books that have less 2,000 ratings on Goodreads.

1. Children of Icarus by Caighlan Smith – 311 ratings

Mythology and retellings are some of my favorite stories and this is one of my favorites. More people should read it!

2. Deadly Sweet by Lola Dodge – 285 ratings

I’ve talked about this book before, and even though I didn’t like the second book I think the first book is definitely worth reading.

3. Light Magic for Dark Times by Lisa Marie Basile – 92 ratings

If you’re looking for a book on self-care, or if you’re Wiccan looking for ritual ideas this book is a great place to start!


4. poems for the sound of the sky before thunder by Topaz Winters – 37 ratings 

This book definitely deserves to have a lot more ratings, so if you like poetry you should definitely try and get a copy of it.


5. Open Earth by Sarah Mirk – 257 ratings

There are a lot of great comics out there, and this one happens to have a lot of diversity as well as having a great story.

6. Rule by Ellen Goodlett – 727 ratings

I got a copy of this from NetGalley and enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. It sounds a lot like Three Dark Crowns, but in my opinion is much better.


7. Petra by Marianna Coppo – 1,678 ratings

This book has some of the most ratings of all the other books I put on my list, but I wanted to include it because it’s really adorable.

8. Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie – 477 ratings

I’m not a huge reader of Sci-Fi, but I wanted to give it a try because the main characters are female and there’s also a lot of diversity in this book.


9. Given Duet by Mindy McGinnis – 669 ratings combined 

Combined this book has less than 1k ratings!! This makes me so sad, it’s such a unique world and has some great characters.

10. Glitter Duet by Aprilynne Pike – 1,081 ratings combined

I seem to have a thing for duets, but this one is really great. I love all of the world and I love how morally grey the main character is.

What are some of your favorite books that need more love? Let me know, or leave a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post. 🙂 


  1. I loved Glitter too! I can’t believe these books aren’t more popular, they’re so unique. The setting’s fantastic and Danica’s one of my favorite anti-heroines. I really need to pick up the sequel soon! I didn’t know Topaz Winters had written more than one collection, I’ll add this one to my TBR 😊 Lovely list!
