TTT: Underrated

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads.”

As I was scanning through my ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ books on Goodreads, I noticed that I have a TON of picture books and short stories that are underrated. I think this is just a product of the way most people use Goodreads. The vast majority of Goodreads users read and rate novels and adult non-fiction. So, I’ve not bothered with picture books or short stories here.

  2. Jane Austen Cover to Cover: 200 Years of Classic Book Covers by Margaret C. Sullivan (517)
  3. Betty Crocker’s Cooking Basics: Learning to Cook with Confidence by Betty Crocker (146)
