Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is: Top Ten Underrated Authors or Books in X Genre
I only really read contemporary YA - I don't know if these are even underrated. They're just books I've given four or five stars that I don't see mentioned very often but obviously I don't follow every blog, so maybe someone, somewhere has hyped these too!
Take Me There by Carolee Dee - I remember being blown away by this. I finished it in a few days whilst sightseeing in NYC - so you know it had to have been good! The characters, the setting, and the story are just so authentic.
The Dairy Queen Trilogy by Catherine Gilbert Murdock - Such a great series. D.J is one of the sweetest characters I've read and I love her family and everything she has to go through. Brilliant. It also made a change to have a main character who wasn't the quirky, uncool but really cool girl that seems to be everywhere these days. I like sports books so if you have any favourite's, let me know!
Chasing Forever Down by Nikki Godwin - This book really surprised me and wasn't what I expected at all. Brilliantly written friendships and an enviable setting meant it stuck with me long after I read it.
In Honor by Jessi Kirby - I've actually seen this one on lists before but I thought Honor's story was heartbreaking and earnest. That's always a plus.
