Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
January 1: Best Books I Read In 2018
Happy new year all! This is my first blog post of 2019, but since I’ve already posted my 2018 favourites, I thought I’d write about some of the underrated books I read last year. These ten don’t get much hype, despite being such good books, but I’d highly recommend them all.
This is a bit of an eclectic mix of contemporary and fantasy YA, poetry, and translated fiction, but all of these are definitely worth a read. If you like humour, definitely go for Convenience Store Woman, or for romance Love, Hate & Other Filters and Starfish are worth a read. All these books deal with pretty weighty issues, but they do so with sensitivity and care, which is part of what makes them so good.
Have you read any of the books on this list? Which book do you think will be your first read of 2019?
