1. Perks is AMAZING and I love it. And more people should read it so it totally counts.

2. My friend swears by those books but I haven't gotten time. So maybe I will start!

I love perks as well! Did you hear about the movie? And I'll try Rainbow Boys, it looks good. :)

So, I think this might be discovered because it was on a list of 100 books you should read before you die but I don't hear enough people talking about it. SO.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

It's a BEAUTIFUL book about books and about Spain and about growing up and falling in love and bad shit stuff that happens to people. 

One of my favorites is the entire "His Dark Materials" series. tHe movie that came out a few years ago really trned people off from reading the whole trilogy, but they're very good. Also, try "The Night Circus" or "why We broke Up".....good stuff. :)

Umm... Miss Invisible was a favorite of mine. Honestly, I fell in love with Laura Jensen Walker as an author. She's fantastic for women in their older teens and twenties. :)

I am never certain how well known House of Leaves actually is. That's what comes from being so immersed in internet communities. If you haven't read it, the book is so strangely wonderful and uses a meta formula that jumps right off the pages and into your mind, destroying both.

I don't know how "undiscovered" any of these really are - I tend to like popular books and I know some of these are very well-known authors.  Also, this list is a bit mixed.  Some are books I read in middle school, others I'm reading in college.  Some are sci-fi, others autobiographical, some are light reads while others really make you think.

Handle with Care is one of my favorites. Peeps is really good too, and everyone focuses on his "uglies' books so much! :)

Love Sucks

A Need So Beautiful

Invincible Summer

Gone Gone Gone

The Unidentified

Kiss the Morning Star

When the Sea is Rising Red

Masque of the Red Death (a novel, not the original by Poe)

who is ready for the new artemis fowl book TOMORROW?!?!?!?!? Nook FTW!

Sarah Diemer is brilliant in her portrayal of lesbian relationships. I am especially fond of The Dark Wife.

Some of my current favorites are Ella Minnow Pea, Sarah's Key, The Poisonwood Bible, Nailed, and Shattering Glass. I'm not sure how undiscovered the books are, but they're the ones that when I talk about them most people haven't heard of them.
