Books not only allow you to expand your thoughts and imagination because it also helps develop your consciousness, skillets, vocabulary, and spirituality. It can even help you get through the darker periods of your life. Also, reading books allows you to understand different people’s perspective as you submerge into the beautifully written fictional stories.
Apparently, when you search online and watch some honest review clips, you often end up with the most popular books in the market. Perhaps you already read some of it. Fortunately, I got a list of some of the most underrated but amazing books for you. So if you are feeling bored with your home quarantine experience, here are some of the not-so-popular but amazing books you might want to check out.
With Malice (Eileen Cook)
It is an adventure book that tells the story of a girl who goes on a study abroad trip to Italy. That’s what it is supposed to be. But apparently, she wakes in a hospital bed and doesn’t remember the last six weeks of her life. She got bruises and stitches all over her body, and she is being told that while in Italy, she had an accident and killed someone. It left her confused and stunned right at the bat. From that plot, it promises to give you the best exciting reading moment. It is a simple, straightforward story that can make you feel like you are watching an actual mystery movie. So entertaining that it will suck you into the story so fast you wouldn’t even notice you have finished reading it.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Steig Larsson)
The story is about the female lead named Lisbeth Salander, who is independent, intelligent, and careful to details. Even though the book is a mystery crime/ thriller, the female lead is not over-sexualized in the story. You will still appreciate how the writer wrote the story even if it is not the genre you often go for. It is detail-oriented, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat while reading through the whole book. The way the story runs with subtle storylines makes it more catchy and enticing. It will provide you with a lot of fun vibe.
Albatross (Terry Fallis)
The story is about a kid in high school who has a gym teacher that believes that a perfect physiological aspect determines his ability in sports, particularly in golf. The teacher encourages the kid to try sports regardless of the lead, not knowing anything about it. The lead wants to become a writer but soon tries golf. Throughout the story, he gets incredible and skyrocketed into the heights of fame. Honestly, this is a book that not most people talk about. But it is an entertaining book that can inspire you in so many ways. It is a combination of fun and entertainment mixed with a few emotional portions. Honestly, in the first few pages of the book, the story runs a little bit slow. But right after reading a few more, it gets entirely exciting.
Aristotle And Dante Discover Secret Of Universe (Benjamin Alire Sáenz)
It is a story of an adventure of two teenage boys. It is a book that is highly recommended for this quarantine time because it provides hope and meaning to life. It is about family, friendship, appreciation, compassion, and self-love. It is a very inspiring and moving book that will make you appreciate having someone with you, especially in times you least expected. When you think about a binge-worthy book that can distract you from the negativity around, particularly isolation, this is the one.
