T10T: Hidden Gems in YA

August 29, 2017

This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is Ten Hidden Gem Books in X Genre!

I decided to go with a few under-hyped YA titles for this post. If you see some titles that you don’t think are under-hyped, keep in mind that I’m not basing this off of sales so much as I am basing it off of how often I actually hear other readers and reviewers discussing and recommending these titles! Every title on this list was a 4- or 5-star read for me, and I’ll add links to my reviews of them below the titles.


1. The Only Alien on the Planet – Kristen D. Randle

2. How to Make a Wish – Ashley Herring Blake

    This is the tenth time I see How to Make a Wish. I`ll take that as a sign I should read it.
