Welcome to the weekly show of ‘hello it is tuesday and I change the topic again because I am getting no inspiration from the TTT topic this week’. Not the topics fault but just my faulty mind. In any case, Top Ten Tuesday is as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
So today I am changing it from places in books I’d like to live to books I think should have higher average ratings. It is just one of those topics that just tends to come back every year in some shape or form and it just doesn’t give me any kind of inspiration. My memory left me behind a few years ago and recollecting these things is just really hard on my brain right now.
Instead I’m going to growl at the average goodreads reader for rating these books so low.
At the time of writing this it is still the only 5 star read of the year for me and the average goodreads rating 3.69. Its not bad but clearly it hasn’t been found by the readers that would love it. I certainly did. So I really hope it will be in the coming years. And look at those eyes on the cover. She judging you…
Indigo Springs seems to be jarring to people because it is written in two timelines that worked very well in my mind. It kept you on your toes, and it was a little different from other books. But I guess that isn’t appreciated?
Isn’t that title alone a reason to pick up this book and love it? It is so wonderfully quirky and different. And yes it is a novella. But never let that deter you from pure excellence.
This is such a fun little heist story with such endearing characters. I really don’t understand why it isn’t more liked.
Coral is sold as a little mermaid retelling, and while that certainly inspired the storytelling, it is much more a mental health story. I think that made people have different expectations and not see the excellence of this story.
