Top Ten Tuesday: Books I loved with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads


What an interesting topic this week! It required some research to compile this list, to be sure. Fortunately, I log my reading in and have a “shelf” for each year’s books. So, I looked at the likely suspects to see how many reviews each had. I was surprised to find a few real favorites of mine were in this category.

  1. I find it so sad to see the really low number of ratings for some books – when you think that an author put their heart and soul into that novel or short story collection. It must feel so dispiriting not to get much of a reaction

  2. Ah, I”ve actually read The Outside World! It’s been a while so I don’t remember much of the details, but I know I thought it was terrific. I love the title of the last on your list (Bar Harbor…) — I’m going to need to check that one out!
