Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Top Loved Underrated Books

by | Sep 11, 2017 | Tea and Biscuits Discussions | 23 comments

There is quite a many books that are underrated on Goodreads, that are some of the best books I have ever read. I tend to be the type of person to not go crazy over the super hyped books. I like to find those unique treasures that not many people know about, so I wanted to share my list of my favorite books that are under 2000 ratings on Goodreads. Those special romances that I believe needs a shout out of their own. Books that will pull you in and books you won’t be able to put down. Stories that will surprise you. Many of these books, surprised me in how low their ratings on, especially when they are some of the best romances ever to be written.

    I haven’t read any of these, but my favorite underrated book is Equal Parts by Emma Winter. Its a darker romance and I devoured it! Sadly, the author hasn’t written anything else!

    I’ve only read five from your list and they were all ones I loved. I do have the Marjorie Liu series on my tbr pile for eventually. I think my Eileen Wilks’ World of the Lupi series that I love tends to be one of the underrateds as well as Karen Chance’s books, but most of the low-rated ones I like are either indies or those just starting out and building a following like Katie Ruggle.

    I just got Outlaw Hearts for free on Amazon Kindle (I think it was that one?) so I’m going to try it! I always say I’m going to try a Bittner book. Wonderful list, Renee!

    Have a fantastic week. =)

    I don’t think I’ve read any of these, but I’ve definitely had some of these on my TBR. The House on Blackberry Hill by Donna Alward is a book I don’t think gets enough love. I absolutely adored that one.

      I will definitely have to pick up Donna Alward then, since you enjoyed her so much.

    The only one I’ve read from this line-up is I WANT YOU TO WANT ME and I really enjoyed it. I’m surprised it has so few reviews since I’m pretty sure, if I remember correctly, it was published by a big house publisher that was doing a bit of promo for the series. Which is how I heard about it in the first place.

      I was really surprised that I Want You To Want Me hasn’t been more popular either. I am glad that you enjoyed it too!! 🙂

    Nope, I haven’t read any of them. 🙁 A book I think deserves a lot more recognition is The Garden of Small Beginning by Abbi Waxman. It has 2,119, but needs MORE!

    I haven’t read any of them. I do know that Marjorie M. Liu has been on my radar for a while, but I’ve yet to try her.
