Top Ten Tuesday | Books that Don’t Get Enough Book Love


 
When putting together Finding Wonderland’s Top Ten Tuesday lists, a repeat occurrence is the appearance of the same novels. All this is all well and good because such novels are, in my reader’s opinion, worth sharing and re-sharing. However, sometimes sharing about the books that don’t get as frequent of mentions or book love is a long overdue commission a book nerd is pleased to embark on.

Ten Books I really Love But Feel Like I Haven't Talked About Enough/In A While

Below are the novels I either don’t talk of all that often for reasons because I haven’t read them in many years or simply because I’ve neglected to spotlight them as I should have. 

1. The Book of Hours by Davis Bunn | I read this one eons ago (long before I joined this thing known as book blogging), but if my snippets of memory are correct (or intact), I remember falling head over heels in love with the story - plus there's a CASTLE, so there is that. Amazon | Goodreads

2. The Trouble with Tulip by Mindy Starns Clark | A fun cozy mystery that inspired two additional series novels. Amazon | Goodreads 

3. The Gifting by K.E. Ganshert | Fantastic start to author Katie Ganshert’s Indie YA dystopian trilogy. Amazon | Goodreads  

4. There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones | With Jenny’s next YA releasing tomorrow (we’ll be talking about it in tomorrow’s post), it’s the perfect time to gush about this one. It was one of my all-time YA romcom favorites when I read it. It remains the same today. Amazon | Goodreads 

5. The Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lindquist | A charming fairytale YA novel that doesn’t seem to get the play it deserves. Amazon | Goodreads

6. Remembrance by Michelle Madow | Before she wrote the Secret Diamond Sisters (Harlequin Teen) series, Michelle penned a sweet time travel duology (plus a novella sandwiched in-between) that was inspired by Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story’ song. I still remember loving this story. (Plus as of now, it's free on Amazon Kindle.) Amazon | Goodreads 

7. A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge | I do talk about this one quite a bit, I suppose, but well, I do so adore this series! Plus, with the final novel set to release in a few month, what better time for new readers to read book one and two!? Amazon | Goodreads 

8. My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade | Becky’s Bethany House debut is charming! Go read it. Amazon | Goodreads

9. Flee the Night by Susan May Warren | Ironically, Susan is set to return to the work of contemporary romantic suspense and this was the first series I ever read by her. Naturally, it’s still one of my favorites. Amazon | Goodreads  

10. The House that Love Built by Beth Wiseman | Read this one with the INSPYs last year, and feel hard for its sweet charms (plus that title is so poignantly sweet). Amazon | Goodreads

  7. Interesting list Rissi! I'm not familiar with any of these titles but they sound wonderful; I'm particularly drawn towards The Princess in the Opal Mask--not sure if it's because of the cute cover or the fact that the word "opal" is mentioned ;)

    1. Thanks, Lianne - it is sort of a mish-mash this week, isn't it!? ;)

      "Opal Mask" is really sweet. It's been a long time since I read it, but I do recall enjoying it quite a lot! Hope if you read it, you find a fun story inside its pages. :)

      Super glad you stopped in, Lianne. As always, thanks!

  8. I have The Princess and the Opal Mask and it's sequel, I think it's high time I read it! Great list :)

    1. I've yet to read the "Opal Mask" sequel, Allyson, but given how much I enjoyed book one, I should make that a priority. :) Thanks, as always, for visiting!

  9. Great list, Rissi! I've read many of these (some VERY long ago), so the list brings back great memories! My siblings, who do not share my affinity for Christian fiction, still bring up "Be a smart chick" (The Trouble with Tulip) from time to time--I was reading it on a camping trip, my brother stole the book and started reading it aloud in a mocking voice, and much hilarity ensued. Thanks for the flashback!

    1. It's been SUCH a long time since I read The Trouble with Tulip but I do remember thinking the series was really neat and fun! I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one; and it sounds like that's a really fun memory, Becky. :)

  10. I've been meaning to read those last two! Love the titles. :)

  12. The only one I've heard of out of these is Remembrance, but I haven't had the chance to read it yet. I do really like the sound of The Princess in the Opal Mask though :)

    1. Remembrance is really sweet, Ely - and last I looked, it was FREE on Amazon Kindle. As for "Opal Mask," it was one of my favorites at the time. Such a fun story, plus FAIRYTALE. :D

      Thanks so much for visiting. :)

  13. The only book from this list that I've read is "There You'll Find Me"- which I loved way more than I'd expected. I'll have to look into Jenny's new book...
    My TBR pile wants to thank you for this post. I'll have to look into your other suggestions! ^^

    1. Jenny's books are EPIC, Joni albeit a quiet kind of epic. :D But still... Hope you can read her new one ASAP. SO. Good.

      Aw, thanks! Hope you find some new ones to enjoy!

  14. LOVE this list - seeing "The Gifting" reminds me I still have to read book #2 and #3 in the series! I bought the kindle editions for them a couple months back. Also "The Princess in the Opal Mask" is still one of the prettiest covers I've ever seen, so obviously I must read it. ;)

    1. It's the same for me, Bekah! I'm in need to reading Katie's last two books too. But I've little doubt I'll enjoy them - at least you're ahead of me. I've not bought them yet. ;) 'Opal Mask' was really cute as I remember. But then, I'm something of a fairytale junkie. ;)

      Delete
  15. YES yes yes to The Gifting series and There You'll Find Me! Love those stories. And their swoony romances! My Stubborn Heart as well. That one still remains my favorite of Becky's I admit. :) And Susan's Team Hope series! I haven't read those in ages! But I love all three.

    Great list, my friend!

    1. I've not read Susan's "Team Hope" books in eons either, but if I remember well, I so enjoyed them. Also, it's fun because Susan is stepping back to that genre with her next series. Cannot wait.

      Still *need* to finish "The Gifting" books. :/ But I adored Katie's first novel in the series, and have little doubt the rest are equally good. :)
