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.
Love your recommendations and I’ll admit, there are 6 books here which I either already own and need to read, or which are on my wishlist (meaning I will grab them from the library when I see them). I haven’t read any of the others but I’ll admit, it is nice to help people discover new books! Barb (boxermommyreads) recently posted…TTT – Hidden Gem Books I’ve Read In the Past Year or So
Great list! I have to heartily agree with Jack Sparks and The Voodoo Killings. Also, the fact that Dead Souls is on here makes me want to read it ASAP:-) Tammy @ Books, Bones & Buffy recently posted…DEPARTMENT ZERO by Paul Crilley – Review
