In past years, I have concluded my year in books by listing all the books I read that year. This year, I read way more than I have in past years so I decided to do this concluding post a little differently. Rather than list every book I read this year, I will share my top reads of the year – every book that I gave a 5 star rating. I am quite stingy with my 5 star ratings, so you know if I rated these books 5 stars, I really loved them.
Speaking statistically, last year I read 52 books. This year I read 157. Last year I read 7 books that I gave 5 stars and this year I read 19. My complete Year In Books can be found on GoodReads. I have linked the titles here directly to my review of the book, except for the last few which I haven’t reviewed yet.
