Heyy bookish hoomans. How are you all? Reading many books? Befriending many dragons? Reading many books about friendly dragons? Sadly, I haven’t read a dragonish book in a long time and I feel a bit queasy being away from them, but I’m just about managing.
Anywho, as you probably know if you’ve been here for numerous decades, I tend to read quite underrated books. Hyped books… they freak me out a bit. But I am trying to get into some – currently I’m reading The Maze Runner series and am liking it so YAY.
But yeah we’ve established that I love me some underrated books. I like to give a fresh opinion that other people haven’t yet, so that if the book is good, it can become not-so-underrated. I’m just nice like that I know. And because I’m so nice, today I shall shareth with thou a smol list of underrated books that I love and therefore need more love. We just need to accept that sometimes my love just isn’t sufficient enough, ok? I’m only a lil blueberry in this big world.

Lascar was written by my friend’s mum and she self-published it so it’s way too underrated and that makes me sad because it’s an excellent book. Something books don’t always do is take you on an adventure with them but this one took me on the wildest one, and I learnt so much about different cultures and about history and I loved it. It’s been awhile since I read it, but you know those books that you can’t remember well, but do remember that you really liked them? Well this is one of those books. GO READ NOW PEEPS.
This trilogy is sooooo good! It’s a real struggle to find good Christian fantasy that’s not The Chronicles of Narnia, so finding this series made me as pleased as pie. The characters, the storyline, the writing… true, there were a lot of characters to fit into three short books, but I did like the main ones. The lengths of the books themselves were just right, the plot hardly ever slowing, but sometimes that meant lil aspects were rushed. If you’re into Christian fantasy though, this trilogy is definitely one to check out.
I AM ALL TEARS because this book is so good but no one has read it?? But the author is quite well-known? Her famous books don’t even have the best reviews, but books like this one, her lesser known works, do have high reviews, but so few of them like I just do not understand this? The writing is so enchanting and this book needs some appreciation please I beg. Just a cuddle will be enough; but you could read it too ya know, just as long as you’re giving it the love it deserves because it deserves a whole haunted theatre full of love, okay?
Aww this book ❤ my sister gave me a couple books to read a few years ago because she doesn’t like my taste in books (how dare she?) and I thought I wouldn’t like them but I gave this one a go because it’s short so it didn’t take long to read and actually loved it! No one really knows about it though because I think someone ate all the original copies? But my sister managed to rescue one and I’m glad she did because it so cyuteee and it’s about a family that’s falling apart and this lil girl Mimi who’s trying to stop it from falling apart. Honestly it’s the sweetest story that should be read by anyone who has a heart and wants it broken.
So y’all may or may not have read/seen/heard of Nim’s Island but what about its sequel, Nim at Sea? Also known as ‘Nim’s Island wasn’t even that great and this one is so much better but is somehow mysteriously hidden from the entire world’. This book was my childhood (well, part of it. I read other books too) and I’m still upset that it’s not as appreciated as Nim’s Island because it’s a way more developed story, especially for a children’s book. ‘Tis precious and needs a hooman to buy it cupcakes and read it (but not at the same time because that could get messy).
So there y’all have it! Some books to add to your ever-growing TBR and to please love and maybe adopt as your childlings. Seriously, why have these books just been ignored? Where is the justice in the world? Where is our humanity??
Have you read any of these? Please give them love because you have no reason not to because they are excellence.
