Ten Underrated Books (On My Goodreads "Read" List)
On your Goodreads "read list" it's easy to browse underrated books by sorting based on "number of ratings". Here are a few underrated gems that I enjoyed.
Betsy-Tacy (Betsy-Tacy, #1) by Maud Hart Lovelace - I loved this classic children's story. It was actually recommended to me on author Meg Cabot's website. However, I've never met anyone in person who's read or heard of the series. It's a great old-fashioned timepiece.
Wreath by Judy Christie - A heartwarming tale of survival, perfect for anyone who enjoys inspirational YA fiction. Reminiscent of "Where The Heart Is." Well done and kept me turning the pages late at night.
The Adventures of Buster Bear by Thornton W. Burgess - Another forgotten classic from yesteryear, my grandmother's generation. If you like sweet animal stories, such as Winnie the Pooh, Wind in the Willows, etc, this is for you.
The Christmas Doll by Elvira Woodruff - Wow, I reviewed this so long ago, like 2010, but it still sticks out in my memory. It's currently out-of-print. However if you're obsessed with the Victorian era like I am, this heartwarming tale is worth buying used.
The Worrier's Guide to Life by Gemma Correll - Hilarious! A life-style guide for all us overthinkers. I loved this so much and got tons of lols from it. Highly recommended.
Film Isms...: Understanding Cinema - Ah movies. This nifty little guide helped me understand my favorite genres and even learn what some my favorite genres are. Includes helpful examples and recommendations.
Clues to American Dress - Quick, handy overview of American fashion through the ages. Great for students, history lovers, writers, and artists.
Fat Cat Art - Love art? Love cats? Love art AND cats? Then sit back and watch how well a ginger cat improves famous masterpieces. Oshie and I were busting out laughing in the bookstore.
