Brilliant Books You've Never Heard Of

Goodreads is fantastic, don't you agree? They supply so much information, give you the opportunity to share what you've read with friends and offers groups where you can find new inspiration. I've been following "Emma's Book Club" for quite a while and thoroughly enjoy it.

In any of my posts, I will put the link to Goodreads under the picture of the book. If you are interested in my Goodreads page, here is the link.

I always enjoy new kind of literature, something I haven't read before. So, when I saw the group "Brilliant Books You've Never Heard of" on Goodreads, I decided to join it, as well.  They decide once a month on their next read and you can forward suggestions that must only meet three criteria:

Published in or after 1960, but at least 6 months old
No more than 5,000 Goodreads ratings
No self-promotion

You will see that this results in some very diverse literature. I will try to read some of them when I can get my hands on them.

Can you recommend any brilliant books that others have never heard of?
Mine would be:

  1. Sounds like an interesting group of books, have to go over to Goodreads and have a look.

  2. Well they and you are right. I have not heard of any of the books on the list. But I don't deny that such books are out there because I keep finding them as I read through My Big Fat Reading Project lists.

  3. Thanks for the support, ladies. I doubt that I will read them all since they are from all over the genres, some of which I don't care for much, but I will add the books to this list as an incentive to broaden my reading horizon.
