Quiet novels are our best friends. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE some of the novels that get mad love, but there’s nothing like discovering a gem that no one else has really paid attention to yet. It makes it that much more special. Quiet novels don’t quite fall under the same category as our previous posts on controversial YA topics, but we find it important to add in this series because we feel like these books are often overlooked.
Here are a few of those novels that we think should be more “loud”:
*Girl by Blake Nelson (or anything else by him for that matter!)
*Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
*The Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff
*Marcelo and the Real World by Francisco X. Stork
All of the novels above are loved by some, but we feel like they should be loved by MANY. Again, nothing against the novels that people are gaga over (because we’re totally gaga over them, too) we just want to make sure that the quieter novels out there are getting love, also.
So, did we leave something off of the list? Do you get frustrated over a book that you KNOW should be uber popular, yet it isn’t?
