Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Love That Need More Love

Posted February 19, 2019 by meezcarrie in Top Ten Tuesday / 35 Comments


Happy Tuesday!! I’m back at it this week with Top Ten Tuesday‘s theme of “Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads”. I need to preface this, however, with the fact that my typical reads pretty much ALL have fewer than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads – with only a few exceptions. In fact, the topic made me chuckle … you know, one of those high-pitched nervous chuckles when you’re overwhelmed and someone adds something else to your to-do list … because it didn’t narrow down my options at. all.

So I am doing my own thing a bit and focusing on some of my very fave books I read in 2018 that need more love even by the standards of my typical books with less than 200 (yes, two hundred) ratings.

If you haven’t read some/any of these books, go! Now! Read them! And if you have read them already, go! Now! Rate & review them! 😉

    I can’t believe I have to say this, but I haven’t read any of these. I’m definitely going to have to fix that!

  2. Gloria

    Wow, Carrie! I am batting zero on these. I have Northern Deception (maybe because I read your review?) on my Amazon wish list but have not read any of them.

  3. MJSH

    Loved Emerald Illusion and Miles From Where We Started. I have four others on this list on my TBR….when I can get to them, I’ll surely write a review!

    I have read five of them and am sad to say that I can see Cynthia Ruchti’s book from my desk chair at work, I purchased it to go in our church library (based on how much I love her books), but haven’t read it yet.

    Great choices! And my very favorite book of 2018 that didn’t get the buzz-love that I kept sounding . .. “Ghost Heart” by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry.

    Five of these books are on my TBR list. When You Look at Me is on my keeper shelf. I do leave reviews on several sites. Thank you for sharing!

    I really liked When You Look at Me (I’m a big fan of Pepper Basham’s books) and Road to Magnolia Glen. I liked the first book in that series too, The Promise of Breeze Hill. Cynthia Rutchi’s books are always good but I haven’t yet read Miles From Where We Started. It’s on my “want to read” list.

    I read and enjoyed The Road to Magnolia Glen. The first book was even better and book three is a definite read for me when it comes out. I plan to eventually read When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham and Miles From Where We Started, but haven’t gotten to them yet.

    Carrie, you mentioned Cynthia Ruchti’s two Christmas books on a previous post as being Christmas favorites of yours. I had never read anything by her, but thought after seeing your post and knowing she’s an agent with Books and Such Agency, that I would give her Christmas books a try; they’re shorter and seasonal. I read them this month (December was too busy) and loved them! The plots and writing were great, but the down-to-earth normal characters were a breath of fresh air. I also loved the author’s humor. Thank you, for recommending these. Now I need to read Cynthia’s other novels.

    I’ve read Pepper’s book and it was wonderful. I ordered Cynthia’s book because after listening to her at CFRR last year, I’ve wanted to read one of her books!
    Love your recommendations.
