Top Ten Books Everyone Else Isn’t Reading

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

This week’s topic is ‘Top Ten Forgotten Backlist Titles which Jana carries on to say is about thinking outside the shiny, new, trendy titles and think about ones that aren’t talked about anymore. She says that she often gets caught up in all the new releases and finds herself reading the same books everyone else is, that there’s no variety in the bookish community, and social media is full of pictures and reviews of the same handful of books

I do agree with her – every now and again I get fed up to the back teeth of seeing the same books – but luckily, what I tend to read are not the books everyone else is. So this is going to be 10 books I’ve read recently that I haven’t seen other people reading

Alix E Harrow – The Once And Future Witches
Mandy Baggot – Staying Out For The Summer
Colin Elford – A Year in the Woods: The Diary of a Forest Ranger
AJ Aalto – Touched
Christie Barlow – Love Heart Lane

Jessica Bruder – Nomadland
Susan Cooper – Over Sea, Under Stone
Alexis Caught – Queer Up
Peter Ackroyd – History Of England: Foundation
Neil Gaiman – The Ocean At the End Of the Lane

Do you tend to read the same books as everyone else? What have you read lately that other people haven’t been reading?
