Recommendation Post | Underrated Book Series 🍀

 🍀 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day, surrounded by the best readings!❤️ Today I’m SO excited about this post, I’ll not only be sharing with you some of my favorite series, but I’ll also be recommending you A LOT of underrated series, trilogy & duologies. It has always happened to me that when I find a book series that’s not as well-known, but it sounds incredible, I immediately feel like reading it, I don’t know why this happens to me, I think it’s because of the fact that there’s less “pressure” in reading books that are not so well-know within the community and that makes me feel more relaxed when reading them, but I also feel that fervent need to want to read them to share with you and that maybe you can find a new series or book that you can love. 🥰
There’s much talk within the community, and I include myself, about popular books or the most exciting releases of the year, but what about the least known books? I really feel like sharing this with you to give voice to each of these series, I want to give you more options and maybe show you books that you’ve never seen before, but that sound exactly for you. For me, they’re hidden gems. 😍  They’re all wonderful stories and I have here a huge variety of genres so you can find the one that resonates with you and maybe add it to your TBR, you know nothing makes me happier than participating in the growth of your endless TBR  😅 
I hope you enjoy the post a lot & what I’ll do next is introduce each of these book series and under each one, you can find the blurb along with its link to Goodreads + my review (of having one).
Thank you all for the incredible support you give me every day, I hope to be entertaining you and that you’re having a great time here with me. Now, without further ado, let’s start! 🍀

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness…

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for again.

Enter Julie Kagawa’s dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.

Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.

Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous—it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost, Da’s death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself may crumble and fall.

In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hard-won redemption.

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. My other half—my twin brother, my Finn—is crazy. I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me. I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. Dare DuBray. He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. He has the power to destroy me. Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. Why? Because of a secret. A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. You won’t either.

  1. The only books I heard about from your list are Archived and the Young Elites :O Thank you for sharing these! You’re right, reading not very popular books definitely takes away all the pressure and expectations and I usually end up loving them more than other popular books.

    • I know, right? Sometimes we get a little stressed reading hype books, so reading these books that aren’t so well-known removes a lot of pressure, also that feeling of discovering incredible books you didn’t expect to love, is such an amazing feeling 😍


  2. I love Julie Kagawa, but I’m eternally sad that I can’t have a matching set of covers for her Blood of Eden series. I have the first two in paperback in that lovely new cover, but for some reason the third book only came out in hardcover in the US, and the first book in hardcover has the old cover that I don’t like. I wanted to binge-read the trilogy but I never picked up the third one, so they’re still sitting on my shelf all sad and unread.

    I do like the idea of recommending underrated books. We in the bookish community do tend to more heavily promote books that are already pretty hyped. Maybe we should think about doing a post series or something, where one day each month we recommend an underrated book or book series, just to spread the word about some of the other awesome books out there that don’t see the spotlight as much as the popular releases.

    • Oh, I feel you!! the same happens to me, I have the first 2 in paperback and the last one I have in my kindle lol. Even so, the trilogy is GOLD, I would recommend it without thinking to everyone to read it, it has so much action and incredible characters. 😍

      Totally! I think everyone should at least take a post to talk about them because there really are so many hidden gems that we wouldn’t know otherwise. I already put EVERYTHING I read here, but it would be something that I would LOVE to see other bloggers doing 😊❤️

      • Well I will definitely move the Blood of Eden trilogy up my TBR, as well as a reread of the Iron Fey since we’re getting a new one I think later this year.

        Hmm…well, if I can come up with a cool name for it then I’ll just go ahead and create a once a month thing to talk about underrated reads.

  3. I like several of the book covers, especially the first series. I’ve read Slammed, but it didn’t get high marks from me so I stay away from Colleen Hoover’s books. I think I might have to add Meg Kassel and Victoria Schwab. The blurbs for Schwab’s sound pretty unique. Thanks much.

  4. This is a great list, Sofii! I really need to continue with the Goddess Test and start The Young Elites 😀 Ah I remember the era where Colleen Hoover’s books was all the rage, when her books are like the epitome of NA. I also remember everyone loving Never Never… and then proceed to be outraged by the final book. It was pretty uniform opinion and tbh, it scared me from starting the series…

    • I’m so glad you like it, honey! ❤️
      Super excited for you to start with The Young Elite! It’s probably one of the best trilogies I’ve read in my life, the characters are GOLD & sadly, I have to agree with that, even when I LOVE the first 2 Never Never books the last one doesn’t do it justice, even though, I add it to the list because I think it’s worth giving a chance to the plot since it’s SO interesting, they’re short books and they keep you on the edge of your seat, so it’s worth it even when the ending wasn’t what I expected. 😊


  5. Great post. I’ve owned a couple of started books from some of these but just never found time to read them and I have no idea where they are now. Eve for example. I did read the first of the Julie Kagawa series and I enjoyed it – I should have carried on with that but sometimes it’s difficult to fit everything in. Never say never though.

  6. Fantastic post. I think I’ve only heard of one of these series (the one by Marie Lu). I’ve even read several of Julie Kagawa books from other series but somehow haven’t heard of that one! I love discovering new to me books. 🙂

  7. For a second I was scared that I was going to have to say that I hadn’t read ANY books on this list, but I have read The Archived! It is definitely one of Schwab’s underrated books, but I enjoyed it. I’ll have to check out the rest of the books on this list, starting with Keeper of the Bees since I meant to read that over a year ago 😅

    Liked by 1 person

    • I’m SO glad you enjoyed The Archived, love the second book! & Keeper of the Bees is a great duology, in fact, they’re companion books since the second follows one of the villains of the first one, but both are worth it, I enjoyed them a lot 😍


  8. Ahhh I just freaked out when I opened this post and saw Black Bird of the Gallows and Keeper of the Bees, haha! You are so right, it’s a criminally underrated series. I keep hoping she’ll write more in the series someday. I haven’t read anything else on this list, but I know I can trust you when you say something is underrated and deserves more hype, so I’m going to have to make sure I pick these other ones up ASAP. 🥰💖

    • OMG, YES!! ❤️ I LOVE those books as well and I really think that more people should give it a chance, a great paranormal duology & you’re so sweet, thanks! I’m glad you’re going to check out some, I can recommend them without problems, they’re all a lot of fun 😍

  9. Ah I love these kind of posts underlining underrated books and series! I really enjoyed The Archived Series by Schwab, it’s such a good series and I admire her world-building abilities so much! I read the first book in the young elites series and really liked it, I hope to continue this year! 😀

    Liked by 1 person

    • I’m so glad you liked it!! I LOVE to talk about books that aren’t as well known because I feel there’s so much potential hidden out there and they deserved a chance 😊
      Totally!, Schwab is a creative and original writer, I loved The Archived and hopefully, there are more books in that world at some point & OMG, honey … I can’t recommend The Young Elites enough, each book gets better and better, It’s one of my favorite trilogies, so I hope you have the chance to continue with the other books and you enjoy it 😍
      I hope you have an amazing day!❤️
