Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme 
So many books get released in any given week that it's impossible to keep up with them all. While I always keep up with my favorite authors, I wonder how many hidden gems have fallen through the cracks that I've never even heard of. Here are a few that I did read, and loved, and wish they got more attention because they sure deserve it.




Have you read any of these?
What book have you read that deserves more love?

    1. The Moment of Letting Go didn't seem to make much of a splash when it was released but I really enjoyed it. And I've learned that Molly McAdams is big on the drama and angst but sometimes that's actually fun. lol To the Stars was big on drama but it also really got me feeling for the main characters.

  4. We've never heard of these books - will need to check it out. The Story of Us suddenly brought up Taylor Swift to mind (she has a song with that title) and the blonde hair and classic red lip really emphasised that thought. There are so many more books that need more love!

    1. I'd never even tied that book title to the Taylor Swift song! And that's so true... sooo many books out there that need more love!

  5. Scorched - Jennifer L. Armentrout & The Moment of Letting Go - J.A. Redmerski are both on my list because of love the authors. Particularly JLA!

    1. Don't you just love JLA? I swear, the woman must sprinkle magic in her books to make them so incredibly readable. :) For some reason, Scorched just didn't seem to get much attention when it was released. That's a shame because it was so good and the issues the MC was dealing with were presented so well.

  6. I love love LOVE I Want It That Way! That whole trilogy is just so heartwarming and lovely and aww, I just want to be part of their little 2B family. *heart eyes*

    Great list!

    1. Squuueeee! I'm so excited that you've read (and loved) the 2B trilogy, too! I don't know why it doesn't get more love/attention. My favorite was the first book with Nadia and Ty. I swear, that one actually brought me to tears!

  10. Have a few of these sitting on my Kindle.
    Obviously I agree with Scorched. Definitely a much darker undertone than most of her other books. But she handles it very well.
    I've read the Ann Aguirre series. Enjoyed the first one, but the second one(I think) was my favourite. Third one was pretty meh. But a good set of books for sure.

    1. Yeah, the third was my least favorite in that Ann Aguirre series. Loved the guy but had a hard time connecting with the girl.

  11. I haven't read any of these but Scorched! That one definitely needs more attention! A lot of JLA's books are light-hearted in a way, but Scorched wasn't and I really liked it! I'm looking forward to more JLA books that are serious. Great list this week! I'm looking up all the others on goodreads. :D

    1. Scorched was so good. I really felt like JLA upped her game with that one. Wait For You dealt with some darker issues but this one still stood out to me. I hope you found something in the list that interested you! :)
