Today the topic of Top 10 Tuesdays is Ten Of The Best Books I’ve Read that Have Less than 2,000 ratings on GoodReads.

I didn’t realize just how many of the books I’ve reviewed have really small amount of ratings on GoodReads. They include new books, older books, short story collections, non-fiction books, comics, and self-published books.

So it turned out quite difficult to round it down to ten but here are some of the best of them:

1, Fiction River: Moonscapes
The Fiction River short story collections have some marvelous stories. In this one, they all are set on a moon, either our own or another planet’s moon.

2, Karen Wyle: Playback Effect
Karen Wyle writes wonderful, thoughtful science fiction books. This one is a stand-alone set in the near future where people have invented a way to record other people’s experiences. Wyle explores how that technology affect people and the society.

3, John Yeoman: Dream of Darkness
A historical mystery set in Elizabethan England. Yeoman also includes notes for aspiring writers.

4, Scott E. Tabert: A Midsummer Night’s Steampunk
Heavily inspired by Midsummer Night’s Dream but set in a steampunk world. It’s funny and fun.

5, Joss Llewlyn: The Razor’s Edge
Alternate history book. Zelda Price is a security consultant who uses arcane science to create devices which look like magic to the untrained people. Fun and fast paced book.

6, Steve Turnbull: Maliha Anderson Mysteries volume 1
Three novellas set in a steampunk world during the reign of Edward II. The main character Maliha is a biracial woman who needs a walking stick to go around.

7, Kirsten Imani Kasai: Ice Song
Wonderfully evocative fantasy about a woman who can change into a man.

8, Martha Miller: The Retirement Plan
Mystery about two elderly women whose pension just isn’t enough. So, they decide to shoot terrible people for money.

9, Anne Logston: Shadow
I love Logston’s books. They’re fun, lighthearted, and have women as real people. Shadow is the first book I read from her. The main character Shadow is a female elf thief.

10, K.A. Stewart: Devil in the Details
Jesse Dawson is a modern day samurai. When someone has sold his or her soul to a demon in exchange for something, Jesse can fight that demon and get the soul back. Yes, it’s urban fantasy but Jesse is a happily married man, so some tropes aren’t used here (yay).
