Huh?

btt button

What’s your favorite book that nobody else has heard of? You know, not Little Women or Huckleberry Finn, not the latest best-seller . . . whether they’ve read them or not, everybody “knows” those books. I’m talking about the best book that, when you tell people that you love it, they go, “Huh? Never heard of it?”

And, folks–Becca was nice enough to nominate Booking Through Thursday for a Blogger’s Choice Award–while you’re here, why don’t you head over and vote for us, too. Because, a vote for BTT is a vote for all of us who play each week!

  16. I have three books that are my all time favorites and well worn out, but much re-read and loved.
    ‘Lady Blanche Farm’ & ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’
    by: Francis Parkinson Keys
    and a very old copy of a little book called ‘The Friendly Town’ a compilation by E.V. Lucas of prose, poetry, plays and short stories.

  17. P.S. Congrats on the nomination!

    Happy Thursday, everyone!

  21. So many of my favorites are “Huh” books or authors.

  25. Just found you this week first the first time…This is great!

    Thanks!

  26. I’m late but I’m up!

  27. I haven’t played in a while, and I know it’s technically Friday, but it’s also technically Thursday night.

    Either way, my response is here.

  28. I’m in. Great question this week!

  29. I didn’t post this week, but I read several responses with, of course, pen and paper in hand! I now have another tbr list to work on. Thanks for the great recommendations.

  30. I’m a newbie here, and so of course a day late, but here’s my BTT:

  31. I don’t have one of those. I guess that doesn’t really amaze me only because my reading consists mainly top and mid levels authors in some of the most popular genres. Tons of popular fiction. I’d love to find one of those gems and hopefully one day I’ll come across one. I’m usually the one going “Huh? Never heard of it?”

  32. Sorry it’s a day late, I have been away. It’s up at Rhinoa’s Ramblings

  33. This is a great question! We all have that great novel we are surprised that no one else has read, let alone loved.

    Sorry I don’t know how to make it a nice tidy link like everyone else did!

  34. *laughs* Funny you should ask — I just recently posted about mine!

  35. Hi Library Diva – you were definitely neither last _nor_ least

    My first BTT for over a month and still late as usual!

  36. Long time no answer! Here’s my answer.

  37. Very late as I have been away but it was such a great question I had to answer it.

  38. This one seems a bit unfair. I mean, I read SF. Mostly obscure SF. I mean, looking for quirky, funny stuff among a quirky, fun genre – well.
