The Nerds are here to share books that they feel are under rated.
Under Rated Reads: Books that need more hype, that everyone should be reading. Books that we push on people the most.
Edgewater by Courtney Sheinmel: This book has a little bit of everything; it has a mystery, a romance, mental illness, and most of all incredible writing.
Play On by Michelle Smith: This is a young adult baseball romance that deals with depression in such a great way; it’s a must read.
The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: One of the best science fiction/romance I have ever read.
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han: the perfect coming-of-age book that is also a great summer read.
Unravel by Calia Read: This book left me absolutely speechless at the end. Be prepared for it to completely break you.
The Inkworld Series by Cornelia Funke – This whole series contains such a wonderful fantasy filled world that really demonstrates the power of words and brings to life what we all wish we could do: read ourselves into our favorite book.
I can’t resist Emery Lord’s novels! Emery’s second novel, The Start of Me and You deserves all the praise. It’s part of the #QuietYA movement for sure, but it’s a beautiful novel about grief, creating yourself and friendship.
The End or Something Like That by Ann Dee Ellis is a heartbreaking and hilarious book told in “Then” and “Now” sequences about a young girl who loses her best friend and then sees every other ghost in Las Vegas but not Kim–even though they totally planned for Kim to happily haunt Emmy for years. It’s a beautiful book and you all should read it. Trust me.
