Top Ten Tuesday -- Ten Underrated/Hidden Gem Books I've Read In The Past Year Or So



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


Here are the hidden gems books I've read in the past year as follows:

This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor by Susan Wicklund
Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi

Obituary Society by Jessica L. Randall
The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn
Deadly Readings by Laura Bradford
Juliet Takes A Breath by Gabby Rivera
My Japanese Husband Thinks I'm Crazy by Grace Buchele Mineta
Hard Cold Winter by Glenn Eric Hamilton
Blood Wager by Connie Suttle

Which hidden gems books have you read in the past year?
