Well, just like it states in the title…this started out as a Top Ten, we were going to share with you the ten books we love that we feel have been overlooked and underappreciated. Those books that despite having read and fallen in love with, no one else has either a) heard of the book you’re talking about or b) given it the loving fanfare it deserves. We were going to rectify the situation and shine a spotlight on these books and encourage you to give them a try and spread the word. Looking back, we were so naive…10 books? How could we limit ourselves to 10 books? So instead, after agonising over it, we are going to highlight a couple of them, and then point you in the direction of the rest.
Genre: Urban Fantasy
For fans of… Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane, anyone who loves dark urban fantasy
I love this series, it’s a beautifully written dark and twisted Urban Fantasy, full of magic and mayhem. As for the main characters…imagine a Spike from Buffy only with more jagged edges then a broken bottle and teeny tiny addiction to drugs. This is a series that you don’t often see it mentioned, which is a travesty as it is one of my favourites, so If you haven’t tried this series out then please take a chance and pick it up.
Genre: Romantic Suspense
For fans of…the slightly off-kilter
I am not normally a fan of Romantic Suspense I never find that many that I enjoy, atleast that was the case until Crane brought our her Associates series. I love the way she approaches things, it’s always off centre, quirky and not entirely unexpected and I love it. I know whenever I pick up one her books I am going to see something from a slightly from a different perspective…like an undercover agent whose superpower is logistics or linguistics.
Genre: Historical Romance
For fans of…romance, everyone should read this book.
I have reread this book soooo many times. I know the cover is awful, really really awful. But please don’t let that put you off, as the old adage says; you can’t judge a book by its cover. Because beneath that the cheap photoshopped job, is a beautiful tale of courage in adversity, forbidden love, friendship and family. It is one of my all time favourite reads. So shoo, go read it!
So those were the books we wanted to highlight…but like I said, it doesn’t stop there, there are so many fantastic books out there that don’t get the attention they deserve, so we thought we would share all the ones we came up with! So please take a look and if you see something you may like we demand you give it a go!
These are our underappreciated reads, what are yours?
