Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish !

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is ten books you enjoyed that have under 2,000 ratings on Goodreads.

1)  New Year Island by Paul Draker (648 ratings)

How could I not love this book? It has echoes of And Then There Were None (ten strangers trapped on an island with secrets from their past, and one of them is not who they seem to be), and a fictional reality show.

2) Orient by Christopher Bollen (1,181 ratings)

This is a beautifully written book, part mystery, part character study, with an incredible twist at the end.

3) Plumdog by Emma Chichester Clark (172 ratings)

This is one of my all-time favorite graphic novels, told from the perspective of Clark's little black dog, Plumdog.

4)  Sherlock Holmes Was Wrong: Reopening The Case of The Hound of the Baskervilles by Pierre Bayard (264 ratings)

I love Bayard's books where he reexamines famous fictional cases from a new angle. His books are absolutely fascinating.

5) Pattern of Betrayal by Mae Fox and Amy Lillard (71 ratings)

This is a really fun cozy mystery series, set in a quilting-themed bed and breakfast.

6) I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Ian Reid (1,037 ratings)

This was a recent feature on my blog, and I continue to recommend it to people. It's an incredibly clever and eerie psychological thriller, with an amazing ending.

7) The Rich and The Dead by Liv Spector (301 ratings)

This is a really clever, fun mystery with a great surprise ending.

8) Visiting Hours: A Memoir of Friendship and Murder by Amy Butcher (330 ratings)

I've mentioned this book multiple times on this blog before, but I always feel it deserves another mention. It's an incredible true tale of friendship, mental illness, murder, and the reverberations of the past.

9) What Has Become of You by Jan Elizabeth Watson (471 ratings)

This is a dark and twisted thriller about a teacher whose lessons may be too inspiring for a particular student.

10) The Skeleton Crew: How Amateur Sleuths Are Solving America's Coldest Cases by Deborah Halber (631 ratings)

This is one of my favorite true crime books. It's the fascinating story of how the internet has brought together everyday people who are trying to figure out the solutions to unsolved crimes.
