So, I love searching and finding underrated books and sharing them with ya’ll.
What do I consider an underrated book?
Well, a book that has 1000 or lower rating on Goodreads.
So I’ve brought you guys books like that, now keep in mind that the books have 1000 ratings now, it may change.
Let’s get to it then!
(Also, keep in mind that I may not have read these books just yet, so I can’t give you my opinion on them, however if you click on the cover, Goodreads will come up and you can read the reviews.)
Rome, 10BC. Manilus Dardanus, a new soldier from the provinces, applies for a military sponsorship with Cassius Valerian, the general of a small legion patrolling the northern frontier. Idealistic and naive, Dardanus has a lot to learn about the life he has chosen, and at first the brusque and reticent general seems the least willing candidate to teach him; but gradually a bond begins to form between this unlikely pair, one that neither could ever have imagined.
Over the course of a blood-soaked summer in the wild, as Dardanus struggles with coming of age and Valerian wrestles the ghosts of his past, battles and betrayals on every side threaten to end that fragile bond—and possibly their lives.

They say that it gets better, be who are you and it’ll be fine. For Emily, telling her parents who she really is means a therapist who insists Christopher is normal and Emily is sick. Telling her girlfriend means lectures about how God doesn’t make that kind of mistake.
Emily desperately wants high school in her small Minnesota town to get better. She wants to be the woman she knows is inside, but it’s not until a substitute therapist and a girl named Natalie come into her life that she believes she has a chance of actually Being Emily.
