Top Ten Books I Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings on Goodreads

Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads (we’ve done underrated books a bunch of times in the past 6 years but thanks to Lenore at Celebrity Readers for suggesting this topic as a new way to talk about underrated books especially when underrated is subjective.

I learned doing this top ten Tuesday that I have an affinity for underrated books, particularly of the non-fiction variety. About a quarter of the books in my read list have under 2000 ratings, as does about half of my to-read list. I know I’ve mentioned most of these before, but they some are favorites!

  1. Women of the Wall: Claiming Sacred Ground at Judaism’s Holy Site – Phyllis Chesler (my review)
  2. Fragments Of Gender – Lisa Lees (my review)
  3. Gender Oppression: A bloke’s perspective on the struggle for gender equality – Allan S. J. McLeod (my review)
  4. Innovating Women: The Changing Face of Technology – Vivek Wadhwa,Farai Chideya (my review)
  5. The Abramson Effect – Debora L. Spar (my review)
  6. All the Rebel Women: The rise of the fourth wave of feminism (Guardian Shorts) – Kira Cochrane (my review)
  7. Love Is an Orientation: Elevating the Conversation with the Gay Community – Andrew Marin (my review)
  8. At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance–A New History of the Civil Rights Movement from Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power – Danielle L. McGuire (my review)
  9. Mighty Be Our Powers: How Sisterhood, Prayer, and Sex Changed a Nation at War – Leymah Gbowee (my review)
