Here is my list of top ten books that I consider to be hidden gems. Some of them were self published, so I can see why they flew under the radar, since they didn't have a big publishing house to back them. That doesn't make them any less wonderful.;)
As usual, if you are interested in learning more about the book, click the image to go to Amazon. This post contains affiliate links, so thank you for supporting my book habit.;)
1. The Giftsnatcher
I've talked about this one before, since it was such a surprisingly amazing read. Charity writes wonderful books, but I was surprised by just how much I loved the story, despite it being different from my usual fare. It's an amazing combination of historical (Jack the Ripper), magical, and scintillating conversation. I can't recommend it enough!
2. Then There Was You
I was surprised just how much I could relate to Paige and her, well, cynicism. I adored the characters!
3. Olivia Twist
I'm just finishing up this one, which may be a small part of why it's on my list (since it's fresh in my mind. lol). I've enjoyed the twist (grin) on the classic. I'm enjoying it tremendously!
4. It Started With Goodbye
I feel like I have talked a lot about this book, but haven't seen too much about it elsewhere. I loved this re-telling of Cinderella and can't wait to get my hands on the other books by this author!
5. Close to You
This is the first one I picked up by Kara, since it was one that caught my interest on Netgalley. I love that it is set in Hobbiton!
6. The Story Peddler
This one is an amazing start to a new fantasy series! More people need to read it and love it. lol.
7. Blue Justice
I've enjoyed Lynette's other series, but nothing like how I am loving this one!
8. The Illusionist's Apprentice
This one took me a while to pick up, but was so worth it! I felt like it took me back to my childhood, since I went through a fascination with Houdini.;)
9. Engaged in Trouble
This one is an adorable mystery!
This was an amazing psychological mystery that involved an elaborate escape room.
So, what books are on your lists this week? Have you read some of the books on my list?
