8 Great Books That Have Gone Under the Radar

8 great books that have gone under the radar

As exciting as it can be to get on the hype train of newly released books or even get my hands on an advance copy, sometimes I’m just in the mood to discover a book that hasn’t been touted everywhere yet. So today I want to talk about 8 great books that have flown under the radar.

The qualifications I used to pick these were as follows: books published prior to 2018; books that currently have approximately 500 ratings or less on Goodreads; and all were books I read and rated at least a four out of five. I really enjoyed each of these and think they all deserve more attention!

5 Hot Books to Read This Summer

5 hot books to read this summer

I don’t know about you, but I get excited for summer reading every year! Even when I was younger, I used to bring my school’s summer reading list to Barnes and Noble and proceed to stack them all together instead of picking the two or three that were required.

Summer reading means something different for every reader, though. In the following five selections there are a variety of styles and genres to choose from. Most have been previously published so if you’re a library lover it should be easy to get your hands on them!

Looking for a more comprehensive list of titles to choose from? Check out the 2018 Summer Reading Guides atย Modern Mrs. Darcy and Sarah’s Book Shelves for even more options!

So these will run the range from books that are self-published to those published by small presses. Today I have three indie book series to recommend based on popular book series in a range of genres.

Now that February has blown past, it feels like we are on the cusp of spring and I, for one, cannot wait! The hint of warmth in the air, more sunny days, and even the smell of spring is all around, enticing me to come out of my winter hibernation mode. With these changes, I find myself looking to read certain types or genres of books this time of year. Today I have five books in particular to recommend reading this spring.

Like This? Try That! Movie Edition #1

Like this? Try that! Movie Edition

Hi guys! This is the first in a new series of posts recommending specific books based on other books, movies, or TV shows. Since I am a huge movie fan (my best friend and I go see a new movie together every week), I thought it would be fun to start out with a movie edition! I included a range from backlist books to a new release, and each of the three recommendations is in an entirely different genre than the others. Hopefully that means you’ll find something you like!

Let’s just jump in, shall we?
