I want to shout out some books that I don't see enough people talk about and think deserve more attention! "Underrated" is such a loose definition, so I chose books with less than 4,000 ratings on Goodreads. Also, if you're tired of me recommending Laura Wood and Akemi Dawn Bowman, prepare yourself 🙂
