4 & 4.5 star reads of 2017.



I thought it would be fun to do a blog post with the books that I rated five stars. You can check that out over here. I also decided I would do one for all of the other ratings as well. This post post will show the books that I read in 2017 that I rated 4 stars or 4.5 stars.

In 2017 I read 67 books.
I rated 26 of those with 4-4.5 stars.

These are in no particular order. I just sorted my Goodreads 2017 list by โ€œratingโ€ and these are listed from top to bottom. I did try to group same author/series together though.

  1. Ahh such a great list, Ashley ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved Isla and the happily ever after, as well as The Raven Boys series. I haven’t read The Hearts We Sold, but it sounded very interesting, so happy you enjoyed it enough to give it 4 stars ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks! I’m glad I read a ton of great four star reads last year. Hopefully this year will be the same. Goodbye Days was so great. I am dying for a new Zentner book, UGHH. I think his newest doesn’t come out until 2019.
