Emm - "That Book You Like is Coming Back in Style" Thanks for voting :)
I had a ratings limit on this one, but it was a bit of a pain to check every book for its rating. All I ask is that this list doesn't get overloaded with Twilight, Harry Potter and Hunger Games, and gets more lesser-known books. Those three are already on other lists like this (for some reason, even though they're insanely popular...)


message 2: by Keith (new)

Keith How are we defining YA and NA here? Some of these books (e.g. Stardust) date back well before the extreme age-ghettoization we're now seeing. I honestly have little to no idea what counts as NA unless the author actually designates it as such. Are we allowing older books as long as they can be vaguely described as potentially appealing to YA or NA readers, like my YA Before It Was Cool list?


message 3: by Francesca (new)

Francesca Does the Lunar Chronicles series count as underrated? I know it doesn't have a movie franchise/tv series or anything but as a book series it seems incredibly popular. Granted, I haven't read it, myself, yet (although it is on my to-read list) but I see it all over Goodreads constantly and everyone gushes over it.


message 4: by Sionna (new)

Sionna I wouldn't call the series of unfortunate events one that 'needs love' considering it has a movie AND a tv series. Also, it isn't YA or NA.

I agree with Francesca about TLC being pretty popular.... I would almost call Graceling popular too, but I think it would make the cut off.

At Goodreads, we love reading (shocker, I know). There's just nothing like curling up on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea and burying...

Anyone can add books to this list.
