Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About. There’s no particular reason why I haven’t talked about any of these books, they are just books I haven’t talked about as much as other books but I’ve still loved them.

Solanin by Inio Asano – Solanin is a standalone manga about a woman who is stuck in a job she hates and doesn’t know what to do with her life. I loved this manga and I think it talks about relatable topics.

Shoot the Messenger (The Messenger Chronicles #1) by Pippa DaCosta – This is a sci-fi reverse harem series and I loved how action packed and interesting the story of this series in, it has a lot of twists in it.

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss – This is a book that’s hard to describe but it’s told in two povs, one of them being an old man reflecting on his life and the other is a young girl trying to help her mother. The writing of this book was so beautiful and it’s such a quotable book.

Mirage by Somaiya Daud – Mirage is a YA sci-fi/fantasy book and I really liked the writing of it. The characters and storyline were both captivating to read.

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost – This was one of the first adult urban fantasy/paranormal romances I ever read and I loved it. I flew through the books in this series and rated nearly all of them 5 STARS apart from the last book in the series which I really disliked.

Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer – Proof of Forever is a YA contemporary with a slight time travel twist. I love books about friendship and books and time travel so the fact that this book centred on both was great and I loved it.

Shades of Treason (Anomaly #1) by Sandy Williams – I’ve loved the first two books in this series and I’m eagerly awaiting the next. I loved The Shadow Reader trilogy by Sandy Williams too and I think both it and the Anomaly series are very underrated.

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein – This was such a unique book because it’s about a dog’s life through the dog’s point of view and I loved it.

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa – I loved this vampire series when I read it years ago, I thought the characters were all so intriguing and I enjoyed the plot.

Polaris Rising (Consortium Rebellion #1) by Jesse Mihalik – I read this last year and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it, it’s an adult sci-fi space opera with romance.

I didn’t realise how much sci-fi books I’ve read and loved until I made this list. What books have you enjoyed but rarely talk about?

  1. Oooh, great list! I loved Mirage as well, and I think it deserves way more love than it gets! I’ve heard amazing things about The Immortal Rules! I actually have a physical copy that I’m planning on picking up soon. I’ll definitely make sure to check out some of the other books on your list! โค ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I havenโ€™t even heard of some of these books! Solanin, Shoot the Messenger and Mirage in particular sound appealing to me – I might have to check them out soon.
    A book Iโ€™ve enjoyed but rarely talked about is Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – mostly because I never got around to reading the sequel and I heard that it wasnโ€™t as good.
