Books I Don’t Recommend Enough!

I read a pretty large amount of books every year- between 50-100+ books. Obviously, I do not give all of them the same amount of love. Some books I rave about for months and months, and others I only briefly mention in a wrap up and move on from.

So, I thought I would highlight a few books that I really enjoyed, but I don’t talk too much about on here. These are not necessarily under-hyped books, though, (I’m sure you’ll recognize quite a few of them) they are just under-hyped by me!

Young Adult

By Your Side by Kasie West: I read this book a couple of years ago now, but I do remember enjoying it quite a lot! It was a really cute story, and I definitely want to read more from Kasie West in the future. Her books are ones that I’ve been meaning to pick up for quite a while now, as I’ve only read this one, but I’ve heard great things about her other ones.

Adult

My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan: This book completely took me by surprise. I was expecting a fun romance that takes place in London (what better thing to read about?) and while it definitely was that, it was so much more. It was such a complex and heartbreaking story, and I loved it so so much. I would highly recommend giving this a try if you want to read a romance with a lot of depth.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert: Speaking of romances, I absolutely ADORED this book by Talia Hibbert. It was just so well written, and I can not wait to continue on with the series (hopefully I will get to it ASAP).

Poetry

Aphrodite Made Me Do It by Trista Mateer: I haven’t been sharing a lot of poetry with you all recently because I just truthfully haven’t been reading as much of it. So, I definitely wanted to make sure I included some on this list, starting with an amazing collection that I read last year. It was really beautifully written, and it left me feeling so inspired. I need to read all of Trista’s other work because this collection was incredible. Also, their Instagram feed is SO amazing, so go check that out as well!

What We Buried by Caitlyn Siehl: This is one of the best collections I’ve ever read because it was exactly how I’ve always wanted to write. Caitlyn wrote such beautiful lines, had such amazing imagery, and packed in a lot into a short book. It is such a fast read, so I definitely think it’s worth giving a try, especially if you want to get more into poetry.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! What are some books you’ve read and loved but don’t talk about often? I’d love to get some recs!

  1. I haven’t read By Your Side by Kasie West but it may be one to add to the tbr! I’ve only read two other of her books which were a bit ‘eh’ so who knows how I’ll find it. I think they are good but for me they weren’t very memorable or engaging? I couldn’t even tell you the main characters names in either book oops. Still quite enjoyable at the time of reading though!
