In our #BestReadsOf2020 today, we are talking about underrated books!
One that certainly deserve more attention is The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune.
I so loved that story! I vote for TJ Klune to write the next scenario for Marvel or DC movie!
OMG! I listened to the audiobook and was crying as I laughed so hard! People on the street were looking at me like I was nuts! 🤣
The humor and the banter in this book is amazing! It began very early on with a scene where Nick’s dad had a lube bottle on the table to talk about sex and ….LOL So many scenes are funnily epic as Nick often puts his foot in his mouth! The narrator truly was excellent at impersonating a 16 young queer full of hormones yet innocent and blushing and fumbling and …
Nick wants to become a superhero!
But Nick does not want to be an extraordinary only to impress, and maybe date Shadow Star.
No, below the light tone and humor, lies a deep and moving topic.
Nick wants to be different than what he is and stop disappointing his father.
He wants to become an extraordinary.
“I don’t want to say things before my brain can start to focus. I don’t want to take medication. I just want to be seen.”
This book is totally a gem!
What is your favorite underrated book this year?
Thanks for reading!
I didn’t get to read this one last year but I love when books make us laugh so hard we cry. And doing that in public always gives us all the looks haha. I still remember when I read a YA romance, I was sobbing hysterically on the beaches in Southern CA and EVERYONE was looking at me lol!
This was my favorite underrated book of the year too. I really need to read more from TJ Klune.
Anything by AB Endacott!!
Definitely haven’t heard of this one before! 🙂 It looks interesting, though!
I really hope to read a lot from TJ Klune next year, I feel like I would love his work!
Well, I can’t help but read this now!
I didn’t read this one, but I heard good things, and I thought the rounds in my circles at least.
I keep hearing all the best things about this author and I just love seeing these underrated books come to light!
I absolutely agree Sophie. I’m looking forward to the sequel.
