Hello, friends. Today’s Tuesday which can mean one thing: it’s another week, so we’re joining this week’s Top Ten Tuesday February 19 edition.
That Artsy Reader Girl | Top Ten Tuesday February 19: Books I [Really Like] with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads
This week I’m a bit more scattered than I usually am with Top Ten Tuesday (and you all know, Top Ten Tuesday usually flusters me because I procrastinate!), and because of this, my Youtube channel hasn’t received a new video since last week’s Top Ten Tuesday. This trend was going to continue for tomorrow since I didn’t get a video filmed for this week. (Shall we blame it on my bookshelf buying woes, and the fact that my books are either in a. boxes or b. all over my floor?) But I decided not to be lazy, and film one anyway. Regular programming shall resume tomorrow. But I digress. Let’s get back to the topic at hand.
This week’s prompt asks about the books we like with fewer than 2,000 Goodreads ratings. Some of these don’t surprise me (because they’re Indie and *sad face* the writing doesn’t get the recognition it should), but others do. While I have read eight of these, two are titles I haven’t read but do want to. Eventually.
Here we go. Let’s get to listing!

1: To Get to You (155 ratings) by Joanne Bischof | This is unlike any YA contemporary I’ve read, but in this case, that’s a VERY good thing. With its unique voice (and a male one at that), this road trip story is a delight from first to last page. Amazon | Goodreads
2: The Geography of Lost Things (442 ratings) by Jessica Brody | I read this one late in 2018, and really like it. It’s one of those books I didn’t expect to enjoy, only to discover I really did. Amazon | Goodreads
3: Pretty in Punxsutawney (244 ratings) by Laurie Boyle Crompton | This one just released so it might not be the best pick (because it hasn’t had time to earn all the ratings), but still, I wanted to mention it. I recently read it, and thought it was super cute! Amazon | Goodreads
4: A New Shade of Summer (340 ratings) by Nicole Deese | This is one of the best contemporary romances I’ve read in a long time. Love the heroine’s colorful personality, and Davis, well, Davis is swoony. Just saying. Amazon | Goodreads
5: A Sparkle of Silver (288 ratings) by Liz Johnson: To-Read | This is one I’ve been meaning to read for a looong time now. Ever since I saw it’s original cover art. Hopefully in the not to distant future, I’ll accomplish this. Amazon | Goodreads
6: Brunch at Bittersweet Café (203 ratings) by Carla Laureano | This is another one that deserves higher ratings. But given the fact that it’s not been in stores for even a month, we’ll give it some time. Amazon | Goodreads
7: Diamonds are Forever (289 ratings) by Michelle Madow: To-Read | Once upon a time I read the first two books in this series, but haven’t read the third. It’s on my shelf though so I do feel like this is an easy remedy. Amazon | Goodreads
10: Reclaiming Nick (1,600 ratings) by Susan May Warren | On the list of Susan-May-Warren-books-I-haven’t-read goes. Someday I need to read this series as well as books 2-6 of her latest saga.
