Books That Need more attention Giveaway Hop

Displaying Books-that-need-more-attention-Giveaway-Hop.png 
Lots of thanks to Valerie at Stuck in Books for hosting this fantastic Giveaway Hop! 
So many of us have read and loved (or at least enjoyed) a book that no one else seems to be aware of it's existence.  Well this is a chance to help get the word out about them.  
I am going to share some of my favorite lesser known books with you then I have a giveaway below.
These are books that do not seem to be well heard of or acknowledged.  These books have less than 500 ratings on goodreads, and not because they are new titles! Most are under 100 even...
  These books deserve more and come with my recommendation to read.  Click the picture for a link to learn more about each Title!
The Unseen Country   The Adventures of Little Pegleg the Pirate and Friends (Little Pegleg the Pirate #1)   Salvation  Shawndirea: Chronicles of Aetheaon: Book One 
Into the Night (Into the Night #1)  World of Ash (Ash and Ruin #1)  
Dark Souls (Dark Souls, #1)    Dreamer (Chronicles of Marithe, #1)   Atlas  Godspeed  
Daughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis, #1)  The Exemeus (The Exemeus, #1)  
The Bloodstone Chronicles: A Journey of Faith (Journeys to Fayrah, #1-4)  Night Chill   
So for this giveaway I am offering you the chance to choose any book from The Book Depository or any ebook offered on Amazon, up to $12, that also has less than 500 rating on Goodreads and was published AT LEAST 6 months ago.   

PLUS I will pick out a second book of similar or same genre and send that as an added bonus.  This book will be a surprise Title of my choosing for you.

Rules: 
As always-Be Honest.  Entries will be verified-false entries will result in complete disqualification and I do check.  I am in between jobs so time is not an issue.  I cannot stand cheating! 

Any comments or likes must be made on date of entry (previous actions do not count).  No unliking something to re-like it later!!  I keep very detailed spreadsheets of previous giveaway entries so I do know who has done what for the most part.  So if you previously liked a review I have that listed so no trying to use that for this giveaway!

Also be sure to include your rafflecopter name or email when you comment if it is different from your comment name.  So I know who you are typically.
Facebook/twitter following and sharing MUST be done from a legit account.  Meaning you have friends/follows and are active in other activities besides giveaways.  The point of sharing/tweeting is to reach others.
Comments should be meaningful!  For the comment on a review-simple saying "Great review" doesn't fly.  Why is it great?  What did you like/not like about it?  What do you think of the book?  I need to be able to tell you actually paid attention to the post for the entry to count.
Be sure to read what the instructions say for comments.  If I ask for a book Title and author, simple giving me one or the other does not count.   Nor does saying 'I don't know' or similar vague answers.   
The chosen winner will have 48 hours to respond once I have emailed them to claim winnings.

  4. Maya's Notebook by Isabelle allende! I hardly see people talking about that book but i think it's amazing.

  5. Edmond Manning's Lost and Founds series is brilliantly thought-provoking, and is so innovative for fiction in general, let alone m/m. His wordplay is great, and you actually learn different things about the story arc depending on the order you read the books in. And Vin is such a perplexing, heartrending, wonderful character...

  6. Any of H.D. Gordon's books deserve more attention! She's awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great post! I nominated you for the Ten Book Challenge! Details on my blog :)

  8. A tale for the time being, by Ruth Oseki. Japanese literature is great and not so well known all over the world.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am surprised that Robyn Carr does not get more attention, I love her Virgin River series, The Thunder Point series and a few others, one of her books in the Virgin River series, is Virgin River or Shelter Mountain.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Crave the Darkness by Amanda Bonilla (#3 Shaede Assassin) : one of the best UF series I`ve read!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm surprised that The Dark Between by Sonia Gensler isn't a bigger book. It had some very scary scenes and lots of suspense. The characters were also very likable, and I liked the historical parts of it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dead of Eve by Pam Godwin is one I wish more peoplek new about. It was spectacular!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Honestly I don't keep up with what is popular or not, I just go with what I like, so I picked one of yours, Night Chill (1) by Jeff Gunhus, because horror is my fave genre.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Slathbog's Gold by Forman, M.L. I don't really know whether it's popular or not, but I've not heard much of it, apart from when I read it. (Sorry if it doesn't qualify.)
    The book (and the rest of the series) is great. It's a little bit reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings, but it's quite unique in many ways. It's basically a good-spirited adventure novel.

  15. lovely, dark ,and deep by Susannah Sandlin. it's a excellent romantic suspense story which deserve to be more know sadly publisher decided to do it as a serial first so it discouraged a lot of reader ( and now if teh sales don't go up we won't have a book3) i recommend it wholeheartily

  16. I recently read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Hadoon. It's about a fifteen year old with Asperger's Syndrome and how he overcomes difficulties in his life from his perceptive.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I really liked the heart of hannen (fawn bonning) and the sterkarm handshake (susan price). It's such a shame they're not very popular.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would say Looking for me by Beth Hoffman. I loved and adored that book.

    ReplyDelete
  19. There are so many, but I'll say Angelbound by Christina Bauer, since the third one is coming out soon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It has to be one of the most unique reads ever. It's full of clever humour and is a blast to read.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Nightingale Girls by Donna Douglas- in fact this whole series is wonderful. If you enjoyed BBC's "Call the Midwife" this series is a must. I love this era and love the London setting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Def Curse of the Shamra by Barry Hoffman! I this book and NEEDED to read the other two! The plot was amazing and original! He deserves to be noticed more!

    ReplyDelete
  23. One of my favorite authors is an older author, I think she was writing in the 1950s or 1960s, but she didn't get much attention and her books are out of print. Her name is Gwen Bristow and she wrote really amazing historical romances, really well-researched and with strong characters and in-depth plots. I buy her books used whenever I can find them. My favorite of hers is called Calico Palace, about the Gold Rush in California.

  24. Cephrael's Hand by Melissa McPhail. Honestly an awesome fantasy, right up there with the likes of LOTR and GoT.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I just read Nona And Me by Clare Atkins and it was incredibly and definitely underrated. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I loved Elizabeth C. Bunce's Thief Errant series, but due to poor sales, the publisher dropped it. It's a real shame, because the world she created was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maggie Shayne's Thicker than Water is one of my favorites that's not at all popular.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Die for me by Amy Plum, because was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. the Veneficas Americana series (The Native Star, The Hidden Goddess, The Warlock's Curse) by M. K. Hobson - the books are impossible to put down, and anyone who like steampunk, alternate history or magic will love them.

  33. Precinct 13 by Tate Hallaway, it isn't as well known as some other books but I really loved this book. It was an amazing urban fantasy novel. I'm sad that because it didn't get as much attention, the series got cancelled so it's only going to be a standalone.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng needs more attention. Even though it's a little older, I loved it when I was younger! And I never hear anyone talking about it. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Blog This by Cami Checketts, or any book by Cami Checketts as I'm fairly sure all have less than 500 ratings on Goodreads. I have read three of Cami's books and I loved them all. They talk about a number of issues that aren't really discussed in society but should be and the writing and characters are fantastic!

  36. Falling for the Ghost of You by Nicole Christie because it's funny

  37. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff. Beautifully imagined, futuristic sort of setting, tied to old legends of feudal Japan.

  43. "Tethered" by Amy MacKinnon -- I absolutely loved this book, but it's barely ever spoken of. The book is a bit of thriller with lots of crime, funeral activity, floriography, and paranormal! One of my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Elysium Chronicles by J.A. Souders. I've only read the first book so far (Renegade) but it was so good, much darker than I had expected.

    ReplyDelete

  51. I really enjoyed Christian Schoon's Zenn Scarlet series. I thought that would have been more popular, but I feel like he wrote it just for my teenage self!

  59. Juniper by Monica Furlong should get more attention. It kind of changed my life. I read it when I was seven and decided I wanted to write fantasy. It's so different bu a lovely story.

    Oh! And Daughter of Chaos by Jen McConnel. The mythology is fascinating and I loved the magical system.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Guarding Poppy by Christine Wenrick. I am reading it now. I skipped dinner to keep reading it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The Full Moon Bride by Shobhan Bantwal explores the topic of arranged marriage. It's an endlessly fascinating topic for those who are unfamiliar with it. I have read one book by this author, The Sari Shop Widow, and enjoyed it. Her other books are on my TBR list. These are books I would keep b/c of the topic and the beautiful covers.
