July 5: Top Ten Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads
Only eleven of the books I’ve marked as Read on Goodreads have under 2000 ratings, and since I disliked two of them, I cheated a little at the end. Despite my inability to keep within the rules, I’m hoping this week’s topic will bring with it new recommendations.
1. Noughts and Crosses: The Graphic Novel by Malorie Blackman
Noughts and Crosses is one of my favourite novels of all time, so when the graphic novel adaption was released I devoured and loved it – unsurprisingly.
2. Christmas with Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
I didn’t particularly enjoy Billy and Me, but I really loved this subsequent short story. It was sweet and fun and filled with Christmas love and cheer.
3. This Book Is Gay by James Dawson
A non-fiction book that is educational and amusing, this book explores the fluidity of sexuality on a young adult level.
4. Gorsky by Vesna Goldsworthy
This novel is a retelling of The Great Gatsby, featuring a Russian millionaire and his desire to attract the woman of his dreams.
5. Hello Life! by Marcus Butler
This is a YouTuber non-fiction book, focusing on many areas including healthy eating, exercise and self-confidence.
6. Life… On A High by Nick Spalding
A comedy memoir written in its entirety on a round-trip flight to Australia, this is incredibly funny.
7. The World According To Gogglebox by Jason Hazeley
A non-fiction book compiled with hilarious Gogglebox quotes, family profiles and bonus content.
8. Nothing But The Truth by Vicky Pattison
Geordie Shore’s Vicky’s excellent autobiography, it explains how she came to be in the public eye and her reflections of the industry.
9. Flying With Confidence by Patricia Furness-Smith
Fun fact #362: I am terrified of flying (it’s a phobia that only began a few years ago but has impacted upon my life). I read this to try and get over my fear: it was very informative.
…and one under 2,500…
10. Melissa Explains It All by Melissa Joan Hart
I’ve been a Melissa Joan Hart/Sabrina fan since I was a kid, and I loved her autobiography about getting into the industry at a young age and growing up in the spotlight.
