I have decided that I am going to keep the 5 star reads post going annually. I think in the future I will move it to December of every year, but today a post I saw on facebook made me think that it has been 18 months since I last updated my 5 Star Reads List and I have a few more to add.
I started this blog in 2015. I have now read 913 books since that time that I have blogged about. Out of those, I have had 70 that I gave a 5 start review to. As I have stated in the past - all authors are to be commended for writing a book, putting it out there in the public and dealing with people like me who give opinions on their hard work. Bravo to them.
For the 70 books that I have given 5 star ratings to - I own them all. I do not own every book I read (I would go broke), so I try to keep my buying to those that are the most special.
Reading in general is something that is such a gift. Consuming a story and escaping into a different world for awhile is a joy. And every one of the 1000s of books (reviewed and not reviewed) that I have consumed over my lifetime was worth every minute
In No Particular Order here are my 5 star reads (since 2015). Click on the name if you want to read about the book and my review.
