Top Ten Tuesday: 2000 Reviews or Less

Hey everyone! Happy belated 4th of July to my American followers. I hope you had a patriotic day yesterday 🙂 If you’re not American, I hope you had an amazing day. It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! This amazing meme was created by The Broke and the Bookish. You definitely need to give them a follow! This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads (we’ve done underrated books a bunch of times in the past 6 years but thanks to Lenore at Celebrity Readers for suggesting this topic as a new way to talk about underrated books especially when underrated is subjective. An easy way to find this — go to Goodreads, your read list, at the top of your read list where it says settings you can add a column for # of ratings, then you can sort by that. If you aren’t a Goodreads user you can look up books you think are underrated and see what their # of reviews is on Goodreads? Or if that’s too hard you can spin it some other way!

This is a great topic!

Personal Life:

I finished a school. Boy was that crazy. I realized that I probably wasn’t going to see some amazing people again. I attended a baby shower and that was lots of fun. Summer begun and I did lots of reading, blogging and relaxing. I reached 1 year of blogging and got a shoutout from an author. Overall I didn’t have too crazy of a month 😉

This Month:

First of all I celebrated the 4th of July or America’s Independence Day.Then I will celebrate my cats birthday(s) later this month. I’m going to wedding . Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming out on July 31st!! I might go to my friend’s house and watch some of the movies finally. I’ve only seen the first one.

That’s all I really know. More things might come up/happen. Who knows?

That’s a wrap! How was your month? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for this month’s Get In The Know!
