Earlier in the week, I shared books I read this year that I originally rated 4.5 stars, but in retrospect, think should probably get all five stars.
Today I'm moving on to share my actual five star books. I could have divided these up any number of ways, but I went with fairly straight forward genre divisions.
Starred books were published in 2017. All books were read by me in 2017. (All THESE books. I do read a lot, but I didn't read All Books.) This is roughly 12% of what I read. Also, if I read any amazing books between now and Dec. 31, I'm just going to come on here and edit this.
I. Love. These. Books.
