Today’s post: WED. | Dec. 4 – #AMonthofFaves Underrated Books We Think Deserve More Buzz


You know… it’s really hard when you LOVE a book and then you tell people about it and they are like “I’ve never heard of that book” OR when a book is popular among bloggers and bookstagrammers- but doesn’t reach it’s potential outside that particular subsection of readers.


1. The Burning Island by Hester Young. Maybe because it was the 3rd book in the series- but I felt this book had a lot more potential to be a big book for readers- but didn’t really get all the attention it deserved.


2. The Perfect Alibi by Philip Margolin. This was a surprise in my mailbox- but after reading it, I like it so much that I got book 1 in the series. And even though I thought it was great- I just didn’t see the bloggers and bookstagrammers raving over it.


3. The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis. I think in certain sections of the book world, Jill Shalvis is considered a rock star. But I would like to see more people talking about her books- because she combines humor and empathy and real world situations into books with characters that are 100% memorable.

4. The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman. The love for this book on Instagram was high- but I told at least 10 people I knew in real life about this book and NO ONE had heard of it.

5.  The Retreat by Sherri Smith. I don’t know why we’re all not reading everything Sherri writes. It’s a head scratcher to me.


6. Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe by Heather Webber. This book was SO. DARN. Good. And I need more people to be aware of it so she can continue to write about this town.


*Will you be reading any of these books?*

    I’ve been meaning to read (or more likely listen) to The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, but other books just keep getting in the way. Moving it up on my TBR list.

    Oh, I loved both The Lemon Sister and The Bookish Life of Nina Hill. Especially Nina Hill — I just wanted to hug that book.
