Hey guys, how’s your week going? I’m back with another Top 10 Tuesday post with a slightly different topic from the proposed prompt for this week. Again. 🙂
The original prompt was “Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads” but while I’ve read a lot of books with less than even 500 ratings, I haven’t loved more than 1-2 of them. So I decided to go a different way.
So here are the top 10 of my 5-Star reads that have the least number of ratings on Goodreads. (Book titles are links to the respective Goodreads page.) Oh and I should warn you, most of these turned out to be Adult Romances with an additional subgenre.
- Child of Dreams by Celeste Hamilton: The first Mills & Boon I ever read, found it in a box of my aunt’s stuff about to be donated over a decade ago. This barely has 3 ratings on Goodreads but I’ve reread this book so many times over the years – one of my guilty pleasure reads!
- Trouble by Linda Howard: This is a 2-in-1 combo of the first two books in the Rescues series (Midnight Rainbow & Diamond Bay). Both these books feature strong, capable, smart and sexy protagonists – and they’re romances with a lot of suspense and intrigue.
- Killing Time by Linda Howard: One of the very first time-travel books I read or rather a back-from-the-future book. 😉 The first time I read it, I couldn’t get into it (didn’t like Sci-Fi/Paranormal back then) but it’s one of my favorite romances now!
- Running Wild by Linda Howard and Linda Jones: This one is a western contemporary romantic suspense about a woman who is on the run and off the grid and takes a job as cook and housekeeper to a cattle rancher who is fiiiiine. 😉
- This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada: Just read this YA Sci-Fi Dystopia last year and it’s mindblowing! It really keeps you guessing at every turn.
- Orange Vol. 1 & 2 by Ichigo Takano: The very first Manga I read – this was beautiful and heartbreaking and I wish I had physical copies of these books to reread over and over again. It’s a YA fiction about a teenage girl who receives a letter from herself from 10 years in the future.
- The Night Series by Nora Roberts: Definitely one of the most underrated series of companion novels by one of my favorite authors. All the books can be read as standalones and they’re all amazing romantic suspense stories – very easy and quick reads!
- Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked The World by Pénélope Bagieu: An amazing collection of stories about female rebels/pioneers from all over the world and various age-groups, races, nationalities, time periods told in a comic strip style with beautiful illustrations by the author. Loved it!
- The Mackenzie Series by Linda Howard: Another adult romantic suspense series about the lives and loves of the men (and a woman) of the Mackenzie family. Again, each can be read as a standalone but it’s so much fun to read the whole series in order as you get cameos from the other members of the family. 🙂
- The Fatal Series by Marie Force: I’ve just read till book 2 in this long series but I loved both the books and the prequel short story. This series follows a cop in Washington, DC as she’s trying to solve the murder of a senator and has to team up with the senator’s friend and chief-of-staff, who she shares a history with.
All of these books are amazing and get my heart racing for different reasons. And I’ve reread at least half of them several times. Hope you found some books to check out!
