I’ve read a lot of books over the years and I realize some books don’t receive the same amount of recognition as others. This happens for many different reasons. The book might fall under a less preferred genre, it’s a subject matter people don’t usually read, or not many people rate it on Goodreads.
Today, I’ll share with you some books I that I enjoyed, but don’t have a ginormous amount of ratings.
This is a great book to read if you’re interested in the history and development of electronic music in America. It’s really well researched and includes first person accounts and photographs.
I’m surprised (and also a little not surprised) that Let The Wind Rise has so little ratings. It might be because it was just released in April…? But compare that to The Raven King, which was released on the same day. TRK has 19,661 ratings on Goodreads. Maybe it’s because of the cover change…
Serpentine was released by a small press (if I’m not mistaken), which could probably explain the low amount of ratings on Goodreads. Serpentine’s sequel, Sacrifice, comes out this Fall. With a sequel coming soon, perhaps the ratings will go up.
Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun has a whole lot more ratings compared to the other books listed above and a lot more than I would have thought for manga, but I’m glad to see readers and fans alike sharing their thoughts.
Despite their under-2000 ratings, I recommend all of these books! There’s a little something for everyone.
If you’d like to look on the flipside, here are the top five highest rated books on my read shelf:
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Rating: 4,274,827
- Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – Rating: 3,977,848
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – Rating: 3,472,377
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Rating: 2,906,877
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – Rating: 2,483,007
