Top Ten Tuesday #18: 10 Recent 5 Star Reads

Last year I only rated 12 books 5 stars. So far this year, I have had seven 5 star reads. I'm not sure if that means I'm being more lenient with my ratings or if I've just read better books. I'm going to think the latter.

Here are my 10 most recent 5 star books.

Read in 2016

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Bookends by Jane Green (re-read)

Multiple Listings by Tracy McMillan

Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles novellas) by Marissa Meyer

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

George by Alex Gino

Read in 2015

All In (The Naturals #3) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Love Anthony by Lisa Genova

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

  1. I just won a copy of Kindred Spirits so I am super excited to get to it. I love Rainbow Rowell. I have The Start Me and You and Winter that I still need to get to. Love Anthony is one I want to read at some point. Great list!

    1. Thanks. Enjoy Kindred Spirits - it's so cute! I just mailed my winners' books yesterday.

  2. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman! MMD mentioned it on the first or second episode of WSIRN and it's one of my new favorites.

    1. Yeah, I added it to my list after that episode. I'll try to get it soon. Thanks.

  3. I love a few of the books on here! ;)

    So excited for Kindred Spirits! Thanks again!

  4. Anything by Rainbow Rowell is definitely a five star read! :)
