I have a confession. I have read almost 50 books already this year and have not rated one of them 5 stars. Sure I rated The Hunger Games trilogy 5 stars, but that was a re-read (so I am not counting it). I don’t know if I am just not picking books that are really resonating with me, if I need to change the types of books, or I am becoming one of those readers that never likes anything. *shudders*
I am hoping that the rest of the year will bring some 5 star books in.
Here are my top 5 books of the year so far.
- Blankets by Craig Thompson
- The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
- Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
- Cress by Marissa Meyer
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
That brings me to a thought I had the other day. Is reading too much having a negative effect on me? All of the books I listed are different than a lot of other books I have read in the past. I really, really enjoyed them. So why couldn’t I give them the full five stars?
Do you think reading a lot of books can be a negative?
