A Look Back at the Best Books You’ve Never Heard Of

During the month of May we’ve had a number of writers weigh in on their favorite unheralded books. I think we’ve all learned a lot, haven’t we? I know I have. My own posts aside, I count one, just one single book that I had heard of (heard of, not read) prior to reading the posts for this month.

I’m sure many of you have reading lists that are already cluttered so, yeah, sorry about that. Next month Clancy will herd the Fictorians into the summer months with tips on how to stay on task and keep our goals in sight as warm weather and vacations loom. A big thanks to all the Fictorians who made May a success, a HUGE thanks to the many guest bloggers who took time out of their busy schedules to help contribute and as always, our heartiest thanks to the readers of our humble little writing blog.
