Under-hyped YA Books and Series

Happy Friday, all! We hope you’ve had a great week. What are you reading this weekend? Something that we don’t see very often is blog posts about under-hyped books and series. When Danielle and Rachael come across posts that ask for new recommendations, they often try to suggest books that are not hyped. Below are just some recommendations of new YA books and series for you to read! The recommendations will be separated by genre and whether the book is part of a series or a standalone.

The following images are gathered from Goodreads or Amazon.

Published by Always, Bookish Lovers

We’re a sister duo and a best friend from Virginia, USA who absolutely love books! We all met while Danielle and Skyler were in college. Danielle and Skyler are teachers and Rachael is aspiring to be a librarian. As well as having a bookstagram, we co-run a blog together where we review books, post unboxings of other subscription boxes, and offer reading resources for parents and educators.
