Kat (kaitlins16) There are so many books out there that people have read and recommended for others, that have been added to countless to-read lists. We love those books, and can find a lot of people to discuss them with. But what about those other books--the ones not widely discussed, the ones that many have never even heard of? Some are published from the same companies as those well-known books, and others are self-published ebooks. Which not-well-known books would you recommend for your fellow YA Bookaholics members?

Kat (kaitlins16) I've got a few that aren't well known in the terms of ratings:
Mutiny (M.E.R. Series #1) by Jacqueline Gardner Driven by Lisa Nowak Falling (Bits and Pieces #1) by Shirley Miranda Winter Solstice (Bits and Pieces) by Shirley Miranda Princess (American Princess, #1) by Courtney Cole The Wedding Cake Girl by Anne Pfeffer Indelible (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #2) by Lani Woodland Intrinsical (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #1) by Lani Woodland Six Moon Summer (Seasons of the Moon, #1) by S.M. Reine Witch Song (Witch Song, #1) by Amber Argyle
(The books on the left have the lower number of ratings and towards the right the number is bigger.)

Crewel (Crewel World, #1) by Gennifer Albin the best book i've read for ages

The Repossession (Repossession, #1) by Sam Hawksmoor quite good and the heroine is really awesome - no love triangle!

Andrea | 4 comments Some of my favorite books are books that aren't the "biggest" books around. Like Across the Universe by Beth Revis (not the Beatles version) and Legend by Marie Lu.


message 11: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Across the Universe is a great book. I tried to read a little bit of Legend, but it didn't catch my interest before I had to return it to the library. I do like dystopia books, but I'm not as into that genre as others that I read. It would be a great book for big fans of that genre.

I read it up to um I can't remember the name it was set in Australia and it was about this religious cult... Divine Madness? Anyway they were ok they just weren't fantastic the writing was a bit bland and I didn't much like the characters... then our library didn't have the next one so I gave up on them.
