So to keep my role as a book pusher intact I wanted to highlight 5 obscure books you may not know about that you should. And what better way to do that then to talk them up and then offer you one for FREE?! So, here they are. You can click on each title and read the synopsis on Goodreads.
A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb
This one might not be too obscure or unknown but I feel like I haven't heard enough praise for it so it belongs on my list. This book absolutely blew me away! I was so engrossed in the story I shoved it on my family when I was done and those who read it LOVED it too.
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Now, you might have heard of this one too but passed it by because it wasn't a YA, or it didn't look like the type you might like. That's fine, but you're missing out on a book lovers book. This is one of the most beautiful, poetic, mysterious books I've ever read! You've got to stick with this one, though. A friend of mine was reading it and called me out of the blue asking what on earth I liked about it and I told her to KEEP reading. She did and a few days later...she LOVED it! I think her exact words were: "This author is awesome!" Believe me, you don't want to miss this one.
Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
I dare you, I DARE you to read this first book in the series and to stop there. Yeah, it's not YA either and it's a Koontz book but wow! I mean Wow! It has a paranormal element, (you know that intrigues you) it has one of the best protagonist's EVER, and it even has romance, the sweetest kind.
A Madness of Angels by Kate Griffin
If you've followed me long enough you know I've gushed about these books and Matthew Swift before. This urban fantasy series are some of my favorite books of all time. You won't meet such a sarcastic, self deprecating, lovable character any where else. Plus he has quite the mysterious little secret that I find absolutely fascinating. The series takes place in London and the description and creations this amazing author comes up with are pure bliss!
The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty
This is on the lighter side of things and it's the second in a series, but it's OK to read out of order. I laughed my way through this one in one day. It's silly and light and just made me smile. I love books that make you smile long after you've read them.
So, that's five books I think everyone should read. Now, if you're thinking, but why would I want to read any of these? Well, first, did I not just gush about each and every one? Plus, hello, you'd be getting it for free, but I hope you read all of them. ;) Have a great week, everyone!
