Happy Wednesday, friends! Today I’m talking about some of the books on my TBR list with the fewest ratings. I thought this could be interesting to see which books I have on there, and maybe talk about why I want to read them even though they have so few ratings.
For this, I only did books that are currently released and have been for a few months at least.
The City Beyond the Glass by Suzannah Rowntree, 42 ratings: idk why this one has so few ratings, it sounds amazing. It’s a fairytale retelling that takes place in Renaissance Venice. It sounds like everything I need from a book. It as really high ratings, so it’s definitely staying on my TBR.
If Women Counted: A New Feminist Economics by Marilyn Waring, 110 ratings: Melinda Gates mentioned this book in her book, and I love social economics. It sounds super interesting and I really want to read it at some point.
Big Water by Andrea Curtis, 127 ratings: this is by a Canadian author, so of course no one has heard of it. It sounds really good and has super high ratings, so I definitely want to read it soon. Maybe 2020.
Singing Away the Hunger: The Autobiography of an African Woman by Mpho M’Atsepo Nthunya, 130 ratings: in all honesty, I think I added this to my TBR because some old white guy in a Goodreads comment said they enjoyed it? And I figured if an old white guy enjoyed an autobiography by a woman, it’s probably pretty good?
Look What You Made Me Do by Helen Walmsley-Johnson, 140 ratings: this is a non-fiction of a woman coming to terms with her abuse. I think, honestly, someone had this in their TBR and I was like “hey, that’s a cool cover and title” and added it to my TBR. So idk if I’ll ever actually get to it, but we’ll see.
So, those are the books on my TBR with the fewest number of ratings! It’s kind of interesting that three of them are non-fiction. But anyway, have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Are any on your TBR? Let me know!
