What is the best not so famous book you have ever read?
Mine are:

1-  Sandra Carvalho "A Saga das Pedras Mágicas" (Something like "The Chronicles of the Magic Gems" that were never translated into English.)

2- Also Karina Halle "Experiment in Terror Series" that I've read some years ago and only now people are talking about here (in Brazil, where I live hehe)

3- Angel Fall by Susan Ee, but now it's becomeing very famous.

And yours, guys?

Love the topic. Hopefully I will found some good books to add to my ever-growing TR list.  :D

Before I found PTS & then GR I used to read novels that I found randomly on Internet. Didn't read any review, had no idea what the book was about, just found them & read them. So here's some books name from my earlier reading list... I won't say they are the best I have ever read but if we are talking about the non famous kind I would say they are pretty good read.

1. Dawn of Passion by Catherine Kay - Harlequin romance book. Published on 1982. I bought the hardcopy from a second hand book shop. The plot was based on Egypt. The main characters were archaeologists. The heroin was american & expert on ancient languages & had a great passion & love for Egypt so she came to Egypt to work with the hero who was Egyptian archaeologist & had some blue blood in his family bloodline. There were some drama, misunderstanding due to different background of the H & h... there was a little bit mystery in the plot too. It had the flavor of adventure as the heroine came to work in an archaeology site to discover a hidden ancient library. 

2. Changes by Paige Vest - It's a feel good kind of romance story between a single mom of a teenage girl & a widowed cop. At first I thought it was a simple read, not heavy with drama... but it developed towards a light mystery crime theme & had some action after 2/3 part of the book... I mean the hero is a cop so there was bound to be some   ;)  The heroine & hero deals with some issues from their previous relationship but they resolved them pretty quickly & that's how I like them.

I tried to find some books like Dawn of Passion where heroine comes to a new country for adventure & found love... but haven't found any.
