100 Under-appreciated Books

Jae at the Book Nympho recently published a list of ‘100 Under-appreciated Books‘. I was shocked to learn that of this list, I have only read one book (The Fault in our Stars).

                                    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)                      The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)

There are a couple that have been on my to-read list for a while, such as ‘the Girl in the Dragon Tattoo’ (not underappreciated in my opinion!) and ‘the Knife of Never Letting Go’.

                                      Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)                  The Unit

This list has also made me look at books I have not heard of before, which I think is the best feature of any list. ‘Shatter Me’ sounds like an interesting dystopian book and ‘The Unit’ has a very intriguing cover. 

                                      Yours Truly                  The Bad Boyfriends Bootcamp

I read a lot of chick lit, so I wonder why ‘Yours Truly’ and ‘the Bad Boyfriend’s Boot Camp’ stood out as being underappreciated? I have added both to my want to read list on Goodreads so I can find out! 

Were there any on this list that surprised you? Or is there any that you think I *must* put on my to-read pile? Let me know!
