(It was actually going to be four designs but in oriental cultures “four” has the same pronunciation as death, which makes it an unlucky number. So three it is.)
ANYWAYS, these are three more underrated books that I think readers should give a chance! They’re like the quieter books that almost fly under your radar until you accidentally stumble upon it and realize how much you like it. Or at least they were for me.

*cries gross tears* OMG GUYS – this book has pretty much everything, and all encompassed in a space setting. You got hella amounts of action and adventure, as well as a ship crew that starts to become family, and then an antagonistic romance that is absolutely so dear as you continue the book. I’m not sure how many times I’ve reread this book, but it’s been a lot. I need to start paying more attention and looking out for more quotes to make designs out of this book.
I actually reviewed the book on Happy Indulgence here! Traitor Angels is another super enjoyable book that has what I like: enough action to keep you interested, a mystery that you’ll become obsessed over, and characters that find their way into your hearts. There’s SO many great references to philosophers and ideologies during the time, and being a science AND history geek (#sorrynotsorry) I was very happy to see those little tidbits. The telescope in the design is one that Galileo drew in real life! And in fiction (this book), he proves quite an important character.
This is a book both Jenna and I enjoyed immensely! But going over reviews on GR, it definitely seems like one that has mixed reactions. I for one really empathized with the main characters (both of whom are outcasts in their families) and was touched by the emotions that McLemore managed to draw from me. I also almost cried while reading it, even though it wasn’t sad?? It’s just really touching and a beautiful, magical story of star-crossed lovers. I would say it’s the most romantic out of all three of these, too, and has the least action. Even so – MY EMOTIONS. ; u ;
Have you read any of these books? Have I interested you in reading any of them? What other books do you think are more under the radar and deserve more attention? I’d love to know!
