I recently saw Cristina @ Girl in the Pages post about her 5 star reading drought (which was originally inspired by Lauren @ Bookmark Lit’s post here), and I thought it was such a great post! It made me wonder what my 5 star reads looked like for 2018, and I thought I’d do a post analyzing my own stats! 5 star books of 2018 I figured the number would be low since I’m a picky rater.
