Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday. This week I’m sharing some of the books that I think deserve more love and attention both on Stuck in the Stacks

1- White Stag by Kara Barbieri

This book is all about goblins and if that doesn’t sell you than a human girl trying to live in a world full of monsters should. It’s fast paced, dark, and deserves all the trigger warnings but it’s so good!

2- Hererics Anonymous by Katie Henry

Atheists are rarely portrayed in novels and so it’s a fantastic to find books like Heretics Anonymous, where an atheist students attends a conservative high school and joins a group of misfits with diverse beliefs. It heartwarming and fun to see such diverse representation in fiction.

3- Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

This is a fantastic sci-fi horror novels about a ragtag group of teens that find themselves stranded on a ship, in space with bloodthirsty aliens. Lix does a fantastic job creating a claustrophobic atmosphere and sense of suspense.

4- The Unfortunates by Kim Liggett

Kim Liggett is probably most well known for her most recent dystopian release The Grace Year. The Unfortunates is a quick little book about a young man who gets trapped while exploring some a cave system. There more to the story than meets the eye in this ya thriller.

5- Theme Music by T. Marie Vandelly

I read this one recently. It’s a psychological horror novel about a young woman whose family is brutally murdered by her father, right in front of her, when she was just 18 months old. When her childhood home comes up for sale Dixie decides to buy it, but she might have gotten more than she bargained for.

6- Bitten by Kelley Armstrong

if, like me, you ocassionally need an werewolf novel this is a fantastic series to get into. The first couple books follow Elena, the only female werewolf of the pack. It’s full of chemistry, drama and of course, plenty of shapeshifting wolves. It’s definitely a guilty pleasure read

7- A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan

This is a King Midas retelling, told from the point of view of his daughter who sets off on a journey to try and break the curse that plagues her after her father turned her to gold. It’s full of action, adventure and romance and is a fun read!

8- Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

Part court room drama, part murder mystery, this standalone fantasy is a refreshing new take on YA fantasy. I was intrigued from the first page and while it’s a slower paced book it definitely keeps you guessing until the very end.

9- The Apocolypse of Elena Mendoza by Shaun David Hutchins

Elena knows that she is unique. She’s known it since she was born “of a virgin” and if that wasn’t enough, she healed her friend of a gunshot wound in the parking lot. Now a bunch of eccentric, inanimate objects are telling her that end of the world is imminent and it’s up to Elena to warm the world. It’s hilarious and I really enjoyed it

10- The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala

This chemistry ridden, indian inspired fantasy novel is a fantastic cat and mouse story full of chemistry and and political intrigue. The female lead of the story is strong, capable and confident and deservers so much more love from the online bookish community.

  1. I quite like Kelley Armstrong’s books and took a look at bitten too but I’m kinda worried that it has too much drama. Does it have a lot of who-with-whom and love triangles in there? In other books by Armstrong I’ve read it’s usually rather subdued and not too over the top. What do you think?

    Some books I love that I think are underhyped: How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse by K. Eason; The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta; some of Kelley Armstrong’s YA books, such as Darkness Rising and Age of Legends; the Glamourist Histories by Mary Robinette Kowal. I could go on and on, but those are the ones off the top of my head!
