Hidden Treasure: Ten TBR Pile Books With Less Than 100 Ratings on Goodreads

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about book crushes and, honestly, I can’t think of a character form a book I’ve ever had a ‘crush’ on. So I’m taking things in a completely different direction.

No surprise, but my TBR pile has ballooned over the past few months. I don’t know what it is, but every book that comes across my desk looks amazing. Old, new—future releases and long out of print. Look, I know I’ll never catch up on it, but eventually I’ll make a dent in it … right? Yeah, maybe.

Either way, today I’m highlighting ten books from this ever-growing pile. While it feels like there are plenty of books on there that everyone else has read (I’ll get around to Dune … I swear), there are plenty more with far less than 100 ratings on Goodreads. Here are ten of them that I’m sure are hidden treasures.

  1. God my TBR pile is vast – one of the problem with having a Kindle, not being able to see how many books are on it visually! A Wilder Magic may well find it’s way on there too!
    I agree that fictional crushes was a bit weird but I did my best and these are my fictional crushes, some formed years ago, others more recent!

  2. Great twist, I also did one. Like you, I don’t really have “crushes” but I put the fictional characters I most admire, my Personal Heroes.

    You have some interesting books there, I never heard of Sealand and find it fascinating. Not that I approve of those kind of people. And “Bad News” and the Chicken book also sound interesting.

    Thanks.

      1. Thanks, Christopher. I know the feeling. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could buy the time we need to read a book with the book itself?

  3. I can totally relate! I don’t know what it is about all the books I see lately but I *need* them on my TBR and wishlist lol I haven’t heard of any of these titles but some of them do look great! I hope you enjoy them 🙂

  4. I know what you mean about wanting to read almost everything you come across. I’ve felt the same way lately, but I’ve also been in a reading slump, which is a horrible combination! 😅 I hadn’t seen the books on your list before, but The Family Files seems like a fun story.

    Hope you’ll visit my TTT list

  5. Yay, you’re back! Hope things are going well at your end. You’ve been missed on TTT! 🙂 Thanks for a great reclist, and my own pick from here is Family Files — that nose is a dead ringer, innit? Haha.
