Hope that means more remarkable books are on their way :)

M CITY OF BONES isn't unknown. But it's a great list!


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay, this is unknown (but totally shouldn't be). The Ballad of Young Tam Lin by Patricia A. Leslie


message 8: by Suri (last edited Feb 24, 2012 01:06AM) (new)

Suri Durandal voted for Dragons and Cicadas  The Society On Da Run by Nipaporn Baldwin Dragons and Cicadas. Such an underrated book of short stories! It's like a worldbuilding-novel, but it's not! So much happens in it!


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Why is City of Bones on this list? Take it off! No mainstream books allowed.


message 10: by Zora (new)

Zora You know what I'd do if it were my list? Take off everything with more than 1000 ratings. the Prophet, the Red Tent, and Childhood'd End are on page 1, with millions of copies in print of each. I'm actually interested in a list of unknown books that people think are good, but this isn't quite it because of all those well-read books. Thanks for the idea!


message 11: by M (new)

M Popular BOOKS - DOES NOT FIT THE LIST.
Hey,Bob ,it'd be nice if you could remove them

City of Bones
Willow
The Night Circus
Graceling
Red Tent
Beautiful Creatures

...:|


message 12: by Alessandra (new)

Alessandra "City of Bones" has over 160,000 ratings.

Surely it does not belong on a list of "unknown" books?


message 13: by Sharon (new)

Sharon The Prophet should not be on ths list


message 14: by Noel (last edited Oct 14, 2012 07:09AM) (new)

Noel Yale Sharon wrote: "The Prophet should not be on ths list"

My thoughts exactly, as should not be a few other works in this list.


message 15: by Anna (new)

Anna  Matsuyama Deleted City of Bones it is very popular book and this list if for Unknown books.


message 16: by Stephen (last edited Apr 03, 2013 11:43AM) (new)

Stephen Water for Elephants with over half a million ratings doesn't belong on this list. I suggest that the list creator suggest a number of ratings limit. I have a similar list with children's books where I suggested a 25K limit.

The Subtle Knife with several hundred thousand ratings is another example.


message 17: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Just removed a ton of books......

Anyone can add books to this list.
