My 5 and 4,5 Star Reads of 2018 / #toptentuesday 169

Happy new year!

This week the topic for top ten tuesday is top rated books of 2018 (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). I decided to share my 5 and 4,5 star rated books of last year. I haven’t been rating books very high as you will see in my stat post later this month. I mean I read about 200 books and I only have five 5 star reads.

But I also had some 4,5 star reads and so I still get near the 10 for this post. Yeay me.


Giant Days, Volume 1 and 2 by John Allison / review

Foundryside (The Founders 1) by Robert Jackson Bennett / Review

The Fifth Season (Broken Earth 1) by N.K. Jemisin / Review

Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli


Fool’s Errand (Tawny Man 1) by Robin Hobb

The Mad Ship (Liveship Traders 2) by Robin Hobb

The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge / Review

The Empty Grave (Lockwood & Co. 5) by Jonathan Stroud / Review

Lake Silence (The Others 6) by Anne Bishop / Review

Do you find you easily rate books 5 stars?

  1. Sadly, I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned, but I’m dying to read Lake Silence. I believe I’m picky about my ratings, but I can easily rate a book with five stars. Of course, it doesn’t mean the book is flawless, but if the story leaves me wanting for more and I can’t stop thinking about the characters and the story I’ll give it five stars.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Great list! I must admit, a book has to be really special to get 5 stars from me so you’re not alone there. I love The Fifth Season and really enjoyed Foundryside recently, so I’m glad to see you liked them! πŸ˜€

  3. Do you think I would like Foundryside? πŸ€”

    I am finally reading a Robin Hobb book this month for Dragon Daze. πŸ‘βœ¨

    You know, I have never really looked at my five star ratings on Goodreads. I know many of them are actually four star, but I give them five to make up for someone else giving them one or two stars for a stupid reason. It’s still usually 4.5 on the blog… I don’t give many five stars on the blog because I can use half stars. πŸ˜‡

  4. Doorgaans niet maar blijkbaar mocht ik die topscore het afgelopen jaar vaker uitdelen dan ik had verwacht. Al zaten er wel een aantal boeken tussen die ik herlas zoals Sjakie en de Chocoladefabriek, De Heksen, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets en Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, …
