Books that need more love

Do you know what I think is such a shame about social media? That that which is popular is pushed ever forward, but lesser known, out of fashion, or not-so-new things tend to disappear to the background faster than ever. But just because something isn’t shiny and new, doesn’t mean it isn’t good. And books seem to suffer from this particularly. Unless a book is brand spanking new, it doesn’t seem to count on Booktube. So to try and combat that, today’s video is all about books that I think need more love.

Books that need more love

I have selected 5 books for this video. 5 books that I feel more people need to read for various reason. Whether it is a book that is simply funny, extremely well-written, a great story or just a fast-paced read with a great setting. For whatever reason I feel these 5 books should be better known, despite how old they are, despite how few people talk about them on the Interwebs.

Books mentioned:

  • Willa Cather – The Song of the Lark
  • Ernest Cline – Ready Player One
  • Colum McCann – Let the Great World Spin
  • Jennifer Donnelly – These Shallow Graves
  • Marie Phillips – Gods Behaving Badly
