Why So Low? - Frequently Misunderstood, or Rightfully Maligned
Years ago, I noticed how books with a less than 3.7 rating on Goodreads often got the short end of the stick, so I decided to create a shelf delineating that particularly beleaguered lot should I ever be in the mood to focus on it. Plenty of the ones I've read from that selection have proven to be absolute gems, while others could have, in my opinion, afforded an even lower estimation in the public view. Here are the works that continue to labor under a less than optimal first impression on my TBR, for better or worse. The ones nearer the end have very few ratings and thus can be easily wildly skewed in either direction, which should serve as an invitation to some of you to check them out and see what's up for yourself.
