10 Top Ten Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads

So I’ve based this list on the actual editions that I’ve read. I guess in some cases other editions may have more than 2000 ratings, but this is based solely on my Goodreads shelves.

I actually have a mass of non-fiction books that fit this list, but I’m going to stick to fiction this week.

With Anne A Wilson’s second novel Clear To Lift coming out this month (I loved it, review to follow), I couldn’t not include her stunning debut Hover. I read it last summer and loved it. Check out my review for more information.


Hollow Gods

A brilliant fantasy series. I’m currently awaiting book 3 and I’m desperate to hear when it will be released! You can find my thoughts on book 1, Smiler’s Fair, here. I’ve also shared my thoughts on the second book, The Hunter’s Kind, here if you are interested.


This Savage Song

I’ve no doubt that this is only in the sub-2000 reviews list as it has only been out a month in the UK and isn’t out in the US until today. However, I HAD to include it. V.E. Schwab has quickly become one of my favourite writers and This Savage Song is a beauty! You can find my full thoughts on it here.


Sarah hilary 2

Ok, so, I’m cheating a little and putting Sarah Hilary’s DI Marnie Rome series together. Also, note that there are a new set of covers for this series that match Tastes Like Fear. Basically, I love Sarah Hilary’s work. She is amazing and can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned! I have reviews for all three of her books so far, click the links to check them out – Someone Else’s Skin Review, No Other Darkness Review, Tastes Like Fear Review.




Released in April this year, SHTUM is the eye-opening story of a father and his profoundly autistic son. You can find my full thoughts on it here.



Duskfall has only been out for a fortnight which accounts for its low number of reviews. It’s a debut novel. A dark fantasy that will capture you from the first page. I can’t wait for the rest of the series. Full thoughts can be found here.



This is a YA novel that centres around toxic relationships. I truly feel it’s an important book, particularly for its target audience. I have a whole post about this book here.



Another new release, which explains its place in this list. This is a stunning psychological thriller set in Scotland. It’s 99p on the kindle right now, an absolute bargain. More thoughts on this book can be found here.


MORE Trilogy

I happened across the first book in The MORE Trilogy a few years ago on NetGalley and I ended up really enjoying the whole series. I have a post on book 1, More, here and book 2, The Guardians, here, if you are interested in finding out more (sorry).


On The Edge of Gone

This diverse dystopian novel was released in March.  It incorporates an interesting mix of sci-fi, autism, LGBT and drug addiction themes. Personally, I think Duyvis did a fantastic job with this book and you can find all of my thoughts here.


Phew! I honestly had a list of more than 20 books that I considered for this post, but I tried to incorporate a variety and ensure that I had corresponding posts for each of my selections.

Have you read any of these titles? What books made your list this week?
