Top Ten Tuesday – Underrated Gems Pt. 3

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Whenever the subject of my blog comes up in conversation, I’m always asked why I started blogging. “I just love books!” is the simple answer and one I give most to non-readers. “I just love writing about books!” is the second typical answer. I blog for both reasons in addition to wanting to be a source which people are able to go to for recommendations. There is nothing better than to recommend a book to someone and have them come back telling you how much they loved it. Blogging is a hobby for me, not a job, but a successful recommendation feels like a job well done. But I also love being in a position where I’m able to help share the book love and give some of those lesser known titles a leg-up, and hopefully find a few more readers who can love it as much as I did.

I’ve done this same post type before: last time was in July 2016 and first time was September 2014. These ten are the most recent underrated gems from the past year of reading for me.
