Book Blogger Hop - March 19th - March 25th: Spearthrower Owl Became Ruler of Teotihuacan in 374 A.D.

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What books have you read/reviewed that you think are hidden gems, although they haven't found a big audience so far?

I have to say my top hidden gem would be Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn by Day al-Mohammed and Danielle Ackley-McPhail. It is a steampunk fantasy set in the Middle-East that is imbued with interesting characters, clockwork creatures, and magical flavor. I also have to raise the entire Unidentified Funny Objects series edited by Alex Shvartsman. The series is up to eight volumes now, and each one of them is full of short works of funny science fiction.
