Unknown books I read – the recommended list

Looking at my read shelf on Goodreads, I ventured to the settings and added ‘Number of ratings’ to my list to see how many people rated the books I read. There is quite a number of books I read, that beside me were rated on Goodreads by less than 200 people. And there are cases where I just cannot believe that those books weren’t rated by more people!

You haven’t heard about them but they’re good!


Tears in the Grass by Lynda A. Archer 

My Rating: ★★★★★ | Goodreads rating: 4.07 | 123 ratings

This is such a beautiful story. I absolutely loved it. The writing is amazing, descriptions of nature were mystical and brilliant. Among other subjects, it’s about the lives of Native people in 70s, how non-Native people were treating them and destroying their spirits and culture. If you are not sure on which side you stand when it comes to rights of minorities, read this book. It will give you something to think about.


Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind by Julian Baggini

My Rating: ★★★★☆ | Goodreads rating: 3.74 | 87 ratings

A fascinating book written by the philosopher who decided to ‘infiltrate’ the most typical British town and live the life that represents the most typical life of Brits. Full of wit and a curious fascination with people and their lives.


The Last Day of Captain Lincoln by EXO Books

My Rating: ★★★★☆ | Goodreads rating: 4.09 | 57 ratings

The Last Day of Captain Lincoln is a beautiful novel that makes you feel and think. Think about the meaning of life, and death. About death especially. The futuristic setting perfectly amplifies the message of the story and gives us a unique perspective on the notion of death. Read my full review here.
