Happy Tuesday, readers! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, set for us by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl is top ten books with fewer than 2000 ratings on Goodreads. I’m starting with books I read this year and working my way backward. I’ve excluded picture books from this list, just because I’ve read so many of them in the last month and a half. Also, I wrote this post two weeks ago, so some of the numbers may have changed.
- At the time of this writing, On the Come Up by Angie Thomas, with 1,700ish reviews.
- #NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women edited by Lisa CHarleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale
- Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole at 535 ratings. This was my reintroduction to wlw romance and I think the first romance I read with a black same-sex couple, so that was exiting for me.
- A Blade So Black by L. L. McKinney
- Lu by Jason Reynolds. This is the fourth book in a fabulous middle grade series about a group of kids on an elite track team. I can’t sing its praises enough.
- Odd One Out by Nic Stone. It’s Nic Stone people! She rocks!
- After the Shot Drops by Randy Ribay. This is one I finished and immediately put in the hands of a student. It was that good.
- Shadowhouse Fall by Daniel José Older. This is the second in an urban fantasy series with an Afro-Latina protagonist. More people should be up on this series.
- I Am Alfonso Jones by Tony Medina, Stacy Robinson (illustrator), and John Jennings (Illustrator). This is a graphic novel about police violence. So good.
- Soverign by April Daniels. This is the second book in a series about a transwoman superhero. And it is awesome. BTW, April Daniels! Where’s book three!?!?!
