Thank you everyone for your recommendations! It's been busy with events and other work, so I haven't yet covered another RR story just yet, but I have still been doing daily story posts from other writing platforms. Now, I'm looping back to RR after going through the other sites.

@Ararara The under 30k views is only for potential listing on the Monthly Spotlight because that post aims to highlight more undiscovered stories. But besides that, there is no site-wide restriction on views for any books to be listed and indexed on the Archdale Virtual Bookshelf website. :)

@Alkareel Hello! Nice to see you here too!

@luda305 We index any fiction stories that are original novels or series written in the English-language, meaning no one-shots, short stories, poems, etc. Typically, novels are at least 50k total words or more, but we accept 30k as the minimum. Besides that requirement, we have none. Hope that answers any confusion, and thank you for the recommendation thread! It will be a while since I read roughly chronologically in order of first posts, but I'll be sure to look through it once I cover prior recommendations made.

@Book Keeper, I have updated my recommendation thread. It has a bit over one hundred entries, though given less than one in three fictions I read a significant portion of get added to the list, that large number mostly has to do with my reading appetite. That said, I would recommend to you (wordplay not intended) that in perusing my list you act selectively. In that vein, i would note that my list has a few sentences for each fiction which tries to capture its essence, preferably in a way not obvious from the author's synopsis.

@Book Keeper.  Before you even touch my recommendation thread, I would like to recommend to you Thy Secrets Should Be Sung.

That is admirable of you,

There is not much that I have to say, I have only just started to post novels here a few days ago. However I would like to know what readers are interested in kingdom building/management novels, ones that take a more realistic approach to army movements, logistics, and strategic battles on land and sea.

I would appreciate any insight or feedback you may have to help perfect my work. I want to truly create a beautiful piece of literature, any help would be appreciated. I will post the link to my fiction page here, if you decide to check it out, well that is for you to decide.

Thank you for listening, I appreciate your time.

Think all of the following can be considered 'undiscovered' in that none of them are on the first two pages of 'popular this week'

Probably more as there are quite a few hidden gems out there.

EDIT: Didn't realise Raelik had already recommended his own story. My bad.

Thank you for the great list of story recommendations! And that's okay, feel free to add any more you find. I'm steadily growing through all the stories recommended here and on other site forums.

My story has a bit more than 45000 views but it's been a year since I've started posting. It was mostly popular, even got on the seventh-place(that's last on the first place) of trending for a day before, but after a four months hiatus, now I'm kinda struggling. So I'd like to know if I'm doing anything wrong with the story and just general feedback if you please...

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for your patience during the brief absence. I went on a short break and then slowly got back to reading and indexing. Before other platforms, I first aimed to finish another thread list that I closed because it received too many assessment requests. With that almost done, I'm now reaching back out to previous other platforms. I'll likely do a focused session for just RR stories as well in the future. With that said, I always am accepting new stories to list on Archdale Virtual Bookshelf no matter my scheduling circumstances. We are slowly making our way toward 1000 total stories covered by the end of the year goal, to provide a great online library for readers to discover authors and their work. Thank you all again for your great recommendations!
