Every year, I invariably read a book or two that are seriously excellent but for some reason don’t seem to get the attention around the blogs that I feel they deserve. So for today’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week post, I’m going to highlight one such book for each of the five years I’ve been blogging.

2012 – The Slap by Chris Tsiolkas [my review]

2011 – City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell [my review]

2010 – Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan [my review]

2009 – North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley [my review]

2008 – The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle [my review]

What are some of your favorite under-appreciated books?
